9. Good for them!

I just recently started attending Mass again at 54, after 8 years away. I have found it very refreshing that a majority of Catholic women I have met disagree strongly with the Vatican on birth control and, while they are not vocally pro-choice, believe abortion is a personal decision and believe that it should be a legal option. Many, like my sister who has always attended Mass every week, make no secret of their use of contraception and just think the bishops are totally out of touch with the real world. A large percentage are quite liberal/progressive-minded on social issues. I can see a lot of Catholics supporting the LCWR.
