Another perspective on “98% of Catholic women are using contraception”

From the RedCardigan blog, And Sometimes Tea:

I’m getting just a little tired of hearing that “98% of American Catholics use contraception.”

In the first place, it’s such a dam’ silly fake statistic. To buy it, you’d have to believe that 98% of the Catholics in America were sexually active people of childbearing age. I can vouch that this isn’t the case in any parish I’ve ever attended.

In the second place, even if the statement is amended to “98 of sexually active American Catholics of childbearing age use contraception,” we’re still missing a ton of information.

Read the rest of it; it’s worth it!
