Birth Control, Abortion and Environmental Concerns

Nicholas Kristof, op-ed columnist for the New York Times, wrote this piece for Wednesday's edition.  Kristof makes a case to which I have long been sympathetic.  I post it here since it ties into my posts on human sexuality.    What role does family planning play in the Christian life?  Should birth control be freely available, even to those who we don't think should be sexually active?  What role has family planning played in your own Christian walk?  What role might family planning play in reducing poverty?

On the latter question, an old friend, Walden Bello, now a member of the Philippine House of Representatives, posted this rationale on facebook for supporting a bill making family planning resources more available.
