Who gets to decide whether a woman is “qualified” to be a mom. Also who decides when a mother is spread too thin? Large families are such a blessing in which all members get the opportunity to learn the virtues especially love, patience, and sharing. NFP is the way to go if there is grave reason to delay children as it works with nature and not against it. Contraception has been a disaster as the divorce rates, out of wedlock birth rates, single motherhood (with the new boyfriend abusing the children), pornography, shacking up , abortion (which needs to be legal for contraception to work as it is the backup) etc have shown. Contraception is as vital as throwing up is to people suffering with bulimia.

I never said it was. I'm just saying NFP is fine for some people but will not be used by everyone.
If you want to use NFP, fine.

On his initial road to the White House, President Obama sold himself as "change we can believe in." A day after Mother's Day this year, he ran with that terminology in a commencement speech at Barnard, an all-women's college in New York. That he spoke at Barnard and not his neighboring alma mater of Columbia was, of course, by design. For the "change" at heart of his reelection campaign relies heavily on claiming that a war is being waged on women by those who oppose his radical, menacing health-care legislation.

During the commencement, it was made clear that he was...
