New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) is a Catholic, but, as he told a crowd in New Hampshire, that hasn’t stopped him from using birth control.
“I’m a Catholic but I’ve used birth control, and not just the rhythm method,” the presidential candidate said in the town hall event.
The rhythm method is a form of “natural family planning” and is also called the calendar method that uses a woman’s ovulation cycle to predict when is best to have sex, according to the Mayo Clinic’s website.
“My church has a teaching against birth control. Does that make me an awful Catholic? Because I believe and practiced that function during part of my life? I don’t think so,” he said.
