Interesting and well-done story at the WaPo, which profiles a young woman who actually took the time to learn the Catholic position on our bodies and birth control and “fell in love with it”:
Ashley McGuire fell in love with the Catholic Church five years ago, after reading its teaching against artificial birth control.
