Venerable brothers, beloved sons, all men of good will, great indeed is the work of education, of progress and of charity to which We now summon all of you. Swomley reveals that the problems in countries that are associated with overpopulation and the political campaign in the United States to deny reproductive freedom to women are all due to the papal decision to protect the authority and "infallibility" of the papacy. This commission included married couples as well as many experts in the various fields pertinent to these questions. From this it follows that they are not free to act as they choose in the service of transmitting life, as if it were wholly up to them to decide what is the right course to follow. She urges man not to betray his personal responsibilities by putting all his faith in technical expedients. We are all creatures of our culture, our education, and our vested interests.
We have no wish at all to pass over in silence the difficulties, at times very great, which beset the lives of Christian married couples. But to those who consider this matter diligently it will indeed be evident that this endurance enhances man's dignity and confers benefits on human society. The example of countless married couples proves not only that fidelity is in accord with the nature of marriage, but also that it is the source of profound and enduring happiness. Another effect that gives cause for alarm is that a man who grows accustomed to the use of contraceptive methods may forget the reverence due to a woman, and, disregarding her physical and emotional equilibrium, reduce her to being a mere instrument for the satisfaction of his own desires, no longer considering her as his partner whom he should surround with care and affection. But it is equally true that it is exclusively in the former case that husband and wife are ready to abstain from intercourse during the fertile period as often as for reasonable motives the birth of another child is not desirable. Though it is true that sometimes it is lawful to tolerate a lesser moral evil in order to avoid a greater evil or in order to promote a greater good," it is never lawful, even for the gravest reasons, to do evil that good may come of it 18 —in other words, to intend directly something which of its very nature contradicts the moral order, and which must therefore be judged unworthy of man, even though the intention is to protect or promote the welfare of an individual, of a family or of society in general.
Self-discipline of this kind is a shining witness to the chastity of husband and wife and, far from being a hindrance to their love of one another, transforms it by giving it a more truly human character. Men rightly observe that a conjugal act imposed on one's partner without regard to his or her condition or personal and reasonable wishes in the matter, is no true act of love, and therefore offends the moral order in its particular application to the intimate relationship of husband and wife.

That commission was two-tiered: 1 a group of 15 cardinals and bishops; 2 a group of 64 lay experts representing a variety of disciplines. Others ask on the same point whether it is not reasonable in so many cases to use artificial birth control if by so doing the harmony and peace of a family are better served and more suitable conditions are provided for the education of children already born. The very nature of marriage and its use makes His will clear, while the constant teaching of the Church spells it out.

The Vatican was able to keep the flock wary of modern birth control in part by linking it to colonialism: The West, the argument went, wanted to control poor people and reduce their numbers, instead of addressing the causes of their poverty.

The source texts are almost exclusively based on the four Gospel accounts Matthew, Mark, Luke, and Johnalthough other lauded philosophical greats such as Buddha and Socrates are also mentioned.
It could never be right for her to declare lawful what is in fact unlawful, since that, by its very nature, is always opposed to the true good of man. Read also:. The right and lawful ordering of birth demands, first of all, that spouses fully recognize and value the true blessings of family life and that they acquire complete mastery over themselves and their emotions.
But it comes as no surprise to the Church that she, no less than her divine Founder, is destined to be a "sign of contradiction. Conception, of course, is not complete until the fertilized egg is implanted in the uterus.

Now it is true that like all good things which are outstanding for their nobility and for the benefits which they confer on men, so this law demands from individual men and women, from families and from human society, a resolute purpose and great endurance.
Catholic couples also pursued rather unexpected tactics for dealing with the strains of the unsafe period. It arouses in them a consciousness of their responsibilities.
