Anti-contraception, pro-life?

"When the Pope tells bishops in Kenya — the global centre of this crisis — that they should defend traditional family values 'at all costs' against agencies offering safe abortions, or when he travels to Brazil to denounce its contraceptive programme, he condemns women to death. When George Bush blocks aid for family planning charities that promote safe abortions, he ensures, paradoxically, that contraceptives are replaced with backstreet foeticide. These people spread misery, disease and death. And they call themselves pro-life." —George Monbiot
