Melinda Gates is one female catholic that I do admire and respect.
Females in the roman catholic church need not be afraid to speak up. Many people believe what she is saying is the way to go and is only the right thing to do to speak up but many do not have the financial backing like she has.

Melinda Gates:
"A church is made up of its members, and one of the things this campaign might do is help women speak out. I've had thousands of women come on to websites and say 'I'm a Catholic, but I believe in contraception'.

Of course I wrestled with this. As a Catholic I believe in this religion, there are amazing things about this religion, amazing moral teachings that I do believe in. But I also have to think about how we keep women alive.

I believe in not letting women die, I believe in not letting babies die, and to me that's more important than arguing about what method of contraception is right.

There are 200 million women who want to have access to contraception, and if we're not serving them, that's not right."

Bravo Melinda Gates!!
