    And you womenfolk should accept His divine mercy.

    Seriously, though, the conservative 'logic' on this makes it seem like children are a punishment.  Birth control lets us do something "bad"--- have sex for pleasure (and connection, and fun, and whatnot).  Nobody likes it when people get away with immoral behavior, but conservatives are frustrated: They can't jail, stone, bind, beat, or punitively rape women as punishment for their "wantonness".  So they force you to undergo birth.  Sure, it's the most dangerous and agonizing moment in most women's lives, but conservatives have no problem with torture.  

    You might say "no, they can't possibly believe that childbirth is a punishment."  Oh yes!  Just read the Bible.  God punishes women with painful childbirth because Eve ate from the forbidden fruit ( Genesis 3:16).

    Appeasing them has failed.  It is time to crush them.
