Fletch Melinda Gates Contraception Push. Defying Church Morally Necessary

Melinda Gates (Bill Gates' wife), wants to make contracption a priority so that "120 million more women access to contraceptives by 2020". You can watch the video above to see what she says, or check out the story in Newsweek.

Some quotations from the story -

As she revealed in an exclusive interview with Newsweek, she has decided to make family planning her signature issue and primary public health a priority. “My goal is to get this back on the global agenda,” she says. [...]

Now the foundation, which is worth almost $34 billion, is putting her agenda into practice. In July it’s teaming up with the British government to cosponsor a summit of world leaders in London, to start raising the $4 billion the foundation says it will cost to get 120 million more women access to contraceptives by 2020. And in a move that could be hugely significant for American women, it is pouring money into the long-neglected field of contraceptive research, seeking entirely new methods of birth control. Ultimately Gates hopes to galvanize a global movement. “When I started to realize that that needed to get done in family planning, I finally said, OK, I’m the person that’s going to do that,” she says.
Well, I think this is horrendous, myself. In the video above, she makes the claim that somehow contraception and abortion aren't linked, although there are many studies that prove they are.She obviousluy thinks she is doing the world a favour, but it is actually a great disservice. What's even worse, is that she is a self-described Catholic (which the media is making a big deal of in regard to the story), but sees it as being OK with her faith.

Perhaps more importantly, there’s her Catholic faith, which has always informed her work. “From the very beginning, we said that as a foundation we will not support abortion, because we don’t believe in funding it,” she says. She’s long disagreed with the church’s position on contraception, and the Gates Foundation did some family-planning funding early in its history. Still, she went through a lot of soul-searching before she was ready to champion the issue publicly. “I had to wrestle with which pieces of religion do I use and believe in my life, what would I counsel my daughters to do,” she says. Defying church teachings was difficult, she adds, but also came to seem morally necessary. Otherwise, she says, “we’re not serving the other piece of the Catholic mission, which is social justice.”
OK, so she has "pieces of religion" she believes? Defying Church teaching is "morally necessary"?
She may as well go join another Church, because if you do not follow Church teaching, you are truly Catholic in name only.
