**Cherie Blair Demands Catholic Church Rescind Contraception Ban
Complains career women held back by children
LONDON, September 1, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The Catholic Church’s prohibition of artificial contraception is holding back the ambitions of career women, Cherie Blair, the self-declared “good Catholic” wife of former Prime Minister Tony Blair, told an audience at Edinburgh International Book Festival this week.
Blair, a human rights lawyer, is well known for her opposition to the Church’s life and family teachings. She was known to have hosted fundraising parties for British abortion and contraceptive agencies during her husband’s tenure at Number 10 Downing St, and promoted International Planned Parenthood, the world’s largest abortionist organisation, on her website.
