In Reply We appreciate the clarifications regarding this particular use of contraception and the Jewish religion. As we stated in our Viewpoint, there are many shared beliefs regarding birth control among the major religions, as well as certain specific differences, but the focus of our article was not so much about the morality of artificial means of birth control but rather whether these techniques should be considered so essential to the public health as to be forced upon constituencies who object on religious grounds.
