Beautiful article! My husband told me that he was 100% against the Pill while we were still dating, but for different reasons. His parents were research pharmacists and through their knowledge he has become very wary of chemicals interuppting normal body functions. We are both pretty much heath-nuts and interuppting a perfectly well-working menstral cycle didn't fit into our heath scheme. Then we read Sam and Bethany's books, they also happen to be good friends of mine. Perhaps God does care about that aspect of our lives. So, even if I won't admit that the Pill is a mortal sin, it has done enough damage to our culture to at least warrent a serious boycott.
