Nothing wrong with that?

Lifesitenews reports that Mrs Blair has once again stated her opposition to the Catholic Church's 'ban' - as she calls it - on contraception. She clearly says that it has been a part of her and her husband's married life.

Addressing the Edinburgh International Book Festival, Cherie Blair has again called upon the Church to change her perennial teaching on contraception. “I personally don't think there is anything wrong with that, said the wife of the former British prime minister, and indeed without being able to control that I wouldn't have been able to achieve the things that I've been able to do. I think there's a lot of difference between preventing a life coming about and actually extinguishing a life when it has come about, she added. A spokesman for the Church in Scotland defended Catholic teaching after hearing Mrs. Blair’s remarks. Referring to the abortifacient nature of some contraceptives, he said that extinguishing a life “is exactly what the morning-after pill does, while the conventional pill can potentially do the same.”

We are in a time of bold dissent from the Catholic Church's teaching and we must pray that our bishops will be inspired by the Holy Spirit to guide their faithful according to the Natural Law.

What has she achieved that is better than raising children to love God?
