      What someone (like the Senate or the House) is not noticing is that 98% of all US Catholics use birth control.

      Two things:

      Maybe the US Catholic bishops are hoping to shame their flock into a reconsideration of their personal choices - which does point out the weakness of their message, and the fact that they cannot hide behind the Magisterium via passing secular laws.

      Birth control, like abortion, is a private decision, so there is a Privacy clause argument against any such laws in the first place.

      I'm so worn out by all this sophomoric posturing by our elected officials. Whether or not you agree with all of his decisions, there is an adult in the room (House, actually).
