Gingrich has come out against "post-conception birth control" which could easily include birth control pills even when used as intended because they can stop a fertilized egg from implanting. Santorum opposes any birth control a la the Catholic doctrine. Romney has been cagey--relatively silent on birth control, railing against the very things he supported as governor, and going after Obama for the birth control proposal as an attack on religion--he could go whichever way the wind blows him. This is a troubling trend to me, and I am furious at the way the discussion has gone, largely without imput from someone who maybe has a personal stake in the issue.
