I was volunteering today at a health fair, distributing condoms and passing out literature on teen pregnancy, HIV, STDs, fertility awareness and birth control options.
A woman told me “Only two things work: abstinence and then marriage.” I said “That may work for 2%, but the 98% of us want information about birth control.”
She came back and brought me a card that said “Jesus Christ Loves You”.
I’m sure he does.
Seriously, even people who marry as virgins may want to limit their childbearing. I knew a couple who say they were abstinent until marriage. They have two lovely daughters, and the mom takes the birth control pill continuously now and works quite happily. And, the vast majority of us do want to have non procreative sex. I have heard 98% of women practice some form of birth control at some point in their reproductive years.
I was really happy about how many parents of teenagers took information and condoms.
