"When Pope Paul VI wrote his 1968 encyclical Humanae Vitae explaining why the Church believes contraception is both sinful and harmful, he also made predictions about what its widespread use would do. He believed it would increase infidelity, bring about a "general lowering of morality," cause men to lose respect for women, result in women being reduced to "a mere instrument of selfish enjoyment," and promote the belief that we should have unlimited dominion over our bodies. ...Finally, he predicted that contraception would become a "dangerous weapon ... in the hands of those public authorities" who have no concern for moral issues. Forty-six years later, can anyone doubt that each of Pope Paul's predictions have come to pass?"
Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila, Archdiocese of Denver

A postcard campaign (launched in 2009) generated tens of millions of postcards to Congress and yielded great results! Prompted by the Church’s pro-life and religious freedom concerns, the USCCB is hosting another campaign, the "Project Life and Liberty" postcard campaign. We need your support for the success of this campaign!
