Women Have Become Instruments of Sorrow

Contraception has ensnared women in more ways than one. According to many cultural propagandists, it has become part of their American heritage even though, truth be told, women are the ones who suffer and even die because of it.

The truth is that contraception has become the cornerstone of culture decay-a decline that never had to occur if only Catholics in particular had paid attention to a prophet by the name of Pope Paul VI. He warned us more than 40 years ago in his profound encyclical, Humanae Vitae: “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.”
