Humanae Vitae - Diocese of Scranton

There's been a lot of talk about contraception recently, and I wonder how many faithful Catholics have gone back to the source materials and read Pope Paul VI's Humanae Vitae? Probably not too many, as most "Catholics" in the pews today spent very little time learning about their own faith and practices.

Well, just for my fellow un-read Catholics, here is what he said about if contraception was allowed, in a nutshell. He said we would see:
1. An overall lowering of moral standards.
2. A rise in infidelity and illegitimacy.
3. The reduction of women to objects of men's pleasure. (and men too.)
4. Government coercion in reproductive matters.

What on this list is rampant in our world today?

Was the Pope right or wrong?
