Evidence points to the negative impact of contraception on women's health

Edmund Adamus, director for marriage and family life in the Westminster Catholic archdiocese, has an excellent letter in last weekend's Tablet on contraception and women's health.

It's worth reading in full and to note the chapter and verse he cites in making his case that "more and more evidence points to the negative moral and physical impact of contraception" as Edmund puts it.

Earlier this week, SPUC published an extensively researched document which provides the most up-to-date information on how certain forms of ‘birth control’ operate and whether they have an abortifacient effect.

And last week, I reported that the newly-appointed bishop of Portsmouth, Monsignor Philip Egan, has argued that Humanae Vitae is infallible, i.e. irreversibly and without error, by the Catholic Church's ordinary universal magisterium. Humanae Vitae is Pope Paul VI's encyclical letter on the regulation of birth published 44 years ago on 25th July 1968.
