Opposing views on contraceptives presented



Opposing views on contraceptives presented



Reprowatch 23(5-6): 7-8



This article presents two opposing views on the importance of artificial contraceptives. It is noted that in the April 19 issue of the Manila Bulletin, Ms. Ethel Soliven wrote in her column that the position of the Catholic Church on artificial contraceptives is standing in the way of success of the Philippine family planning campaign. To this effect, Sister Mary Pilar Versoza of the Religious of the Good Shepherd, sent a letter of rebuttal saying that the church has never been remiss in emphasizing the true meaning of sexual act, love and relationship, marriage, and family responsibilities. Sister Pilar contended that ligation and condoms do not solve husbands¿ selfishness. In response, Soliven argued in another issue of the Manila Bulletin that she believes in the need to provide access to artificial contraceptives. Soliven asserted that destitute couples who cannot provide their families with even the barest necessities of life should be provided with the means with which to prevent unwanted pregnancies.
