The Vindication of Humanae Vitae, Continued
A half-century after its appearance, Humanae Vitae continues to be vindicated as few documents ever have been -- including by numerous forms of evidence that did not exist when it first appeared, all testifying to the encyclical's truths about humanity. Fifty years later, it is more apparent than ever that this most rejected Church statement of modern times is also the most critical and prescient.

11 a.m.

​SESSION 2: Dr. Maria Wolfs
Your Hormones and Humanae Vitae
The widespread use of hormonal contraception has dramatically changed the face of women's health.  Dr. Wolfs will discuss the paradigm of restorative reproductive medicine that cooperates with women and families to restore and maintain truly authentic women's health care.

Humanae Vitae Was Right: Governments and Population Control
When Pope Paul VI reaffirmed the Catholic teaching on life, love and human sexuality, few would have predicted how prophetic his encyclical would be. How dreadfully his prophecy has been vindicated by population control and coercive sterilization programs, fertility reduction quotas and the promotion of abortion throughout the world.
