“At first, pro-life Evangelicism avoided the issue of contraception. However, over time, it has become ever more difficult for many to draw an absolute line between contraception and abortion, because [. . .] the ‘contraceptive mentality’ embraces both, and some forms of ‘contraception’ are in practice abortifacients.
“ ‘It is clear that there is a major rethinking going on among Evangelicals on this issue, especially among young people,’ R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, recently told the Chicago Tribune. ‘There is a real push back against the contraceptive culture now.’ ”
