We received and interesting package in the mail the other day. Despite my curiosity, I waited until Beth got home for it to be opened since it was addressed to her. It was a nice little hygiene set from the company that makes the birth control that Beth uses.
I suppose it was a nice gesture. A couple of minutes later, while inspecting our gift, we noticed some small print on the bag. “Keep Life Simple.”
I think that is a very cold way to interpret the use of birth control. Our decision to use contraceptives was based on our ability to care for another child, not whether another child would complicate our lives. I think this viewpoint on birth control promotes promiscuity, and I can almost understand why the Catholic church prohibits birth control.
