Natural Family Planning & the New Evangelization

Kippley, John F.
September 2011
New Oxford Review;Sep2011, Vol. 78 Issue 7, p26
The article offers the author's views on the promotion of Catholic Church for natural family planning (NFP) to condemn unnatural birth control. He says that efforts to promote NFP such as NFP courses were ineffective as some bishops and priests do not support teaching Humanae Vitae and that couples think that marital chastity is hard to do. He suggests that the teaching authority of Christ in His Church may be used in NFP course to show that unnatural birth controls are seriously immoral.
