Pelosi tells Church birth control teaching isn’t working

US House Minority Leader and Democratic politician Nancy Pelosi has told the Catholic Church its teaching on birth control is not working.

Speaking at a special hearing called by the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee, Pelosi illustrated her claim by saying that an “overwhelming number ” of American Catholic girls from age 14 or younger, are using birth control and that there is a problem here and a message to the Church to not enforce an attitude which is not accepted by churchgoing laity.
