Abortion and Contraception: Old Lies

I remember reading things in High School about the Salem Witch trials and life in the Medieval period, and how horrible it was. This article begins to reform my thoughts on the period as well as our own.

The author gives a good synopsis in this statement:

it troubled me that the Bible never mentioned the words "abortion" or "contraception." Eve's Herbs provided me with a startling realization: in ancient and medieval times, contraception and abortion were often considered a form of sorcery and witchcraft, rather than a form of medicine.

Anyway, a very interesting read for those feeling like we are living at the worst time in history for the Faith, or for those who think the end is near by reading the witting on the walls. This appears to be have been a problem long before any of our mothers chose life.
