Religious Wrong?

Can someone explain the anti-abortion, anti-birth-control people? I can see where you might think abortion is killing a person. I’m not sure I buy it, since I don’t get my opinions from the crazed scribblings of 2000 year old desert hermits (i.e. I’d like to see some science one way or the other), but I get it.

What I don’t get is that the same people who are so stridently against abortion are also the most vocally against birth-control! Wouldn’t the one solve the other? Naturally, I have to question the rational faculties of people who are perfectly willing to murder a real person who might someday help someone kill a potential person (i.e. abortion), but aren’t they just shooting themselves in the foot on this one?

Does their sick, perverted god really hate recreational sex more than murder?
