The Vindication of Humanae Vitae

From First Things author Mary Eberstadt, comes an insightful article on the cultural effects of generally-universal acceptance of contraception; it's relationship to population-control policies, feminism, sexual promiscuity, and the destruction of the family. Who knew?

Apparently, the Church has always known...but only the Catholic Fathers stood against it...to their ridicule, and to our shame. Once again, we formed and worshiped the golden calf.

  1. Mary is a good writer. One series I liked was "the loser letters" which is a satire on atheism

  2. For years I have believed that the over population thing was a myth. The most populated countries are often the most prosperous and the really poor countries are poor because of very bad government policies.

  4. Interesting article. I did not read it all as it was very lengthy but I got the general idea.

    For years I have believed that overpopulation is a myth, for the most part. Why, for example, are the nations that have the highest per square mile population relatively wealthy, such as Hong Kong, or the UK. A number of African nations, on the other hand, with relatively low per square mile population often have malnutrition problems. The problem is not in the population but in the action of the citizens, and, especially, government.

    God said, “Multiply and replenish the earth.” When He said that, He knew He could supply all of those people.
