Humanae Vitae: 50 Years Later, Part 2

Either human sexuality is left “to the arbitrary will of man” or God has given it a design and it must be respected. In this episode Jason and Dr. Bulzacchelli discuss the document itself. We cover:
  • The competency of the Magisterium to make such a declaration
  • The “principle of totality”
  • Fidelity to God’s design
  • The decision to abstain from the marital act
  • The moral difference between a contraceptive mentality used with licit means of avoiding birth compared to using artificial contraception for grave/serious reasons
  • An appropriate use of science
  • The family apostolate and witness of married couples
