Unbeknowst to the Georgetown law student.

I see headlines that birth control should have bi-partisan support, but what about bi-partisan support of our 1st Amendment Rights?
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
It is all very surreal, but simply it's a real issue that has grave consequences. Unbeknownst to the Georgetown law student who testified on the issue of her Catholic College to cover contraception, over at the Georgetown Institute of Reproductive Health they been doing a lot of medical research on women's health all without contraception.
Georgetown University's Institute for Reproductive Health (IRH) was awarded the 5-year Fertility Awareness-Based Methods (FAM) Project in September 2007 by the U.S. Agency for International Development. The goal of the FAM Project is to increase access to and use of FAM - in particular the Standard Days Method® (SDM), the TwoDay Method®, and the Lactational Amenorrhea Method® (LAM) - within the framework of informed choice. The FAM Project builds upon the experience of previous USAID-funded projects in which IRH developed, tested and introduced FAM in diverse family planning programs in over 20 countries worldwide. With continued emphasis on research-to-practice, the FAM Project engages with partners at the community, national, and international levels to create a supportive policy environment for FAM, build capacity and develop tools to offer high-quality FAM services, and generate and apply best practices.
Catholicism isn't the religion of slut shaming, rather it is the religion of truth and love all wrapped up with knowledge, compassion, and understanding.
