Senior Curial Cardinal says Humanae Vitae Was a "Defense of the Dignity of Women"

"The pill... turns premarital sex into a recreational activity like any other, creating a mentality in which couples enter marriage with a consumerist mentality that effectively makes a commodity of the spouse...

Until 1930, not only did every Christian denomination teach that contraception is a grave moral wrong, but even the mainstream media and politicians disapproved... efforts to legalise contraception, pioneered in the US by Planned Parenthood foundress and racial eugenicist Margaret Sanger, were met with stony disapproval from the public.

However, with the Anglican Church's guarded approval of contraception at the 1930 Lambeth Conference, a process of widespread acceptance of contraception was initiated, with numerous other donominations and churches following suit. Paul VI's 1968 encylical, Humanae Vitae, came as a shock to many in the Catholic Church, who had expected the Church to give its blessing to artificial contraception. Instead the Holy Father issued an uncompromising condemnation of all artificial contraception."
Como diria G. K. Chesterton:
"[Catholicism] is the only thing that frees a man from the degrading slavery of being a child of his age."
P.S. Chesterton sobre "Birth Control".
