The Contraceptive Mentality

Dear Editor: While thousands of people attended the March for Life in Washington D.C., there is a very important aspect that is overlooked and needs mention.

We cannot eradicate abortion without eliminating the use of contraception. St. John Paul II tells us they are fruits from the same tree and a contributing factor in the culture of death, as well as same-sex marriage.

In January of 2015, Michael Voris from Church Militant covered the March for Life in Washington and while asking many Pro-Life Catholics what they thought about contraception, most of them either did not have a problem with it or rejected totally the Church’s teaching. We cannot defend the life of the unborn, without objecting to contraception. We cannot accept one teaching of the Church while rejecting another, otherwise the whole faith collapses.
