    to know why it is that Paul Ryan has only 2 children and his youngest child is 7 years old. Any Catholic older than 40 knows that no one is that lucky, and that the rhythm method doesn't work that well.

    FWIW, the Vatican does not approve of the rhythm method.

    •  Yes they do. The Catholic church (1+ / 0-)

      not only approves, they sing the praises of the rhythm method, or "natural family planning", as they now like to call it.
      And why wouldn't they approve? It means that women must avoid sex when they're ovulating and enjoy sex the most.  Anything that means women have less fun, they're all for it.

      •  But the Rhythm method is a sure fire way (0+ / 0-)

        to get pregnant. In fact, many women who go off the pill follow the method so that they can ensure having a baby!

          The Vatican approves of the NFP method of Birth Control. There's disagreement as to whether this includes the Rhythm method. NFP is generally considered by the church to be completed relations during menstruation, during pregnancy, and during lactation, or after menopause.

          Whatever it is they believe, it's back asswords.
