Re-evaluate stance

The Catholic Church is going through transition. It is time to re-evaluate its “rules” on contraception. The number of homo sapiens on this fragile planet has increased by 5 billion since I was born (1925). In biology this is called a population explosion.

Italian women ignore the Pope on contraception and have a birth rate lower than the death rate — Italians are decreasing in number. Our Catholic-controlled local hospitals should be promoting vasectomies, IUDs, the pill, condoms and tubal ligations. Planned Parenthood need not be the only source of contraception.
