This past week Zenit published an interview with a non-Catholic physician who champions the teachings of Humanae Vitae. Among other things, he calls the document’s argument “compelling” and “prophetic.”
I first read “Humanae Vitae” in 1991 and several times since then. I think it is an inspired document. I think it captures fundamental aspects of human nature. He [Pope Paul VI] really hits the nail on the head regarding the dark side of contraception, sterilization and abortion and their effects on society.
Although I do not think divorce, promiscuity, teen pregnancy are exclusively the result of contraception, I also think these are not unrelated to contraception. I think contraception is a heavy part of the fuel behind the sexual revolution and many of the problems in society we are facing.
I think “Humanae Vitae” is basically a prophetic statement.
