I have split this off from Contraception, which is now Contraception (medical methods). This is an enormous topic by itself, and is not a health science article. Certainly it should be linked to any and all health science articles on contraception, but it needs its own workgroup. Nancy Sculerati 14:33, 3 May 2007 (CDT)

I will put it also in Contraception which will be the "lead" article, but if it's ok I will also leave it here because that article (Contraception) will link to everything and is likely to only have room for a little bit of each topic. Nancy Sculerati 19:17, 3 May 2007 (CDT)

Protestant views on contraception doesn't seem right. I don't think most Protestants have a problem with the contraception, it's the pre-marital sex that they have a problem with. In fact, I think most Protestants would prefer that, if people are having pre-marital sex, they did use contraception. I sure would...Jonathan Beshears 12:36, 16 April 2008 (CDT)
