Ignoring scientific discoveries, as it did in the Galileo trial, Church doctrine reaches erroneous moral conclusions.
According to Amnesty International, the US Conference of Catholic Bishops intend to ban all abortion and birth control.
The arguments for the pro-life position are seriously deficient, while the opposing arguments are philosophically robust.
One of the Church’s most inhuman dictates is its attitude to contraception. It has always had a problem in dealing with matters of sex.
El Salvador - one of five countries where abortion is illegal in all circumstances - has imprisoned dozens of young women for murder.

The Church is completely candid about its opposition to birth control and professes that it will do everything possible to accomplish its purposes.
Up until 1998, the law in El Salvador permitted abortions in cases of rape, incest or in which the health of the woman was threatened.
There is a nearly total lack of awareness that the problem of contraception is related to the problem of papal infallibility.
If the Catholic Church is not the only important opposition to population growth control, it is, at least, the most significant opposition.
