”Business Insider” on Catholicism?

Even a lot of Catholics don't follow the Church's teachings against artificial contraception. Nonetheless, the detrimental societal effects of contraception are becoming more evident as decades pass (also, maybe the Catholic Church isn't so crazy as we thought):

"By making the birth of the child the physical choice of the mother, the sexual revolution has made marriage and child support a social choice of the father." (Slate)

"Instead of two parents being responsible for the children they conceive, an expectation that was held up by social norms and by the law, we now take it for granted that neither parent is necessarily responsible for their children. Men are now considered to be fulfilling their duties merely by paying court-ordered child-support. That's a pretty dramatic lowering of standards for 'fatherhood.'" (Business Insider)

In other news, a direct relationship does not exist between sweet welfare benefits and an increase in babies born into poverty. A direct relationship is observed between increased artificial contraception and increased children in poverty. The link? Absent fathers.
