Respect Life and the Truth on Respect Life Sunday
Date:10/3/2009

WASHINGTON, Oct. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Jon O'Brien, president of Catholics for Choice, issued the following statement on Respect Life Sunday:

"This Sunday, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops holds its annual Respect Life Sunday. On this occasion, we would like to encourage the US bishops to also respect the truth.

On top of that, NFP does not have nearly as good of a track record as the brochure claims. According to a study by the Guttmacher Institute, even those who use NFP perfectly experience a nine percent failure rate, 8.7 percent mor
