Contraceptive Use Among Religious Women

This fascinating little article addresses a new study published by the Guttmacher Institute on contraceptive use amongst religious women.  The Guttmacher study found that there is little to no difference among contraceptive practices between religious and non-religious women.  The article suggests that the results from this study will have implications in United States health care  policy, but do you think that this new data will have any repercussions within our government, especially with regard to our healthcare and insurance?  Though I find the results of the Guttmacher study fascinating, I remain skeptical when it comes to actual positive governmental or social change for women’s sexual and overall physical/mental well-being.
