Is the Catholic Church’s Opposition to Contraceptives a War on Women?

There are complaints that the Catholic Church is framing the current situation over contraceptives as an attack on religious liberty, while downplaying its opposition to birth control. This is false. While the Catholic Church is opposed to birth control, the outrage comes from the fact that the government is forcing them into a situation where they have to pay for products and/or services that violate their teaching. God’s teaching. The fact that it’s birth control is actually irrelevant to the argument. The government could proclaim that the Catholic Church has to start performing marriage for members of the same sex, and the response would be the same. Birth control just happens to be the message of the moment.
