Declaring war on birth control

As a follow-up to my Sex Wars post, take a look at an article over at Talk To Action that details the history of the anti-birth control movement. The author argues that The New York Times is a bit off when it says this is a new phenomenon.

While Judie Brown and her allies in the Protestant ranks are waging a full frontal assault against contraception, they declared war on birth control some time ago. The only thing new is that these days -- flushed with victory over the Roberts and Alito confirmations, and in giddy anticipation of the arrival of the South Dakota abortion ban's arrival before a more conservative Supreme Court - they've gotten a little braver about admitting it.
