The National Anti-Condom Committee?

Does the nation's leading pro-life organization oppose contraception?

Since 2007, the National Right to Life Committee has graded members of the House of Representatives on 10 votes. Of the first five, four were on stem cells; the other was on drug price controls. Of the most recent five, one was on abortion funding, another was on State Department appropriations, and three were on contraception. The scorecard is no longer primarily about abortion.
