I knew it would happen one day. Geri is doing a fantastic thing, promoting birth control and awareness. Don't be discouraged by their stupidity Geri!!! My response? Fuck the Catholic Church! (sorry to any little ones that may be reading this.)They are all about politics. Birth control is drasticly needed throughout the world, and Geri is just trying to make people aware.
