Does, or does not, the Vatican insist 
1. no birth control 
2. no abortions

birth control is similar to that of non-Catholics of the same income and 
educational levels. Jerry Shepperd

So rich Catholics practice birth control and abortion ?
Some do, yes. No matter what your religion, education does lead to increased 
birth
control. The catholic church is VERY slow to change directions on anything at 
the official level, but nuns and missionaries unofficially hand out condoms.
