Contraception: Its Cost to a Culture

If you’re younger than, let’s say, 40 years of age, all you pretty much know is a contracepting culture. You are heirs to the “sexual revolution” inaugurated in the 1960s.

Maybe there are lots of people who would say it has been a success.

But then again…it could be argued that it has ushered in a:

  • General lowering of moral standards
  • Rise in infidelity and illegitimacy
  • Reduction of women to objects
  • Government coercion in reproductive matters

Who predicted all of the above?If you said Pope Paul VI, you would be right. In the encyclical Humanae Vitae, which he wrote in 1968, he outlined the consequences of instituting a “contraceptive mentality” in a culture.
