the prophetical value of Pope Paul VI's "Humanae Vitae"

A great article from Zenit News on the dangers of contraception. Scientific studies are revealing the dangers of several versions of contraception.

The Ortho Eve patch (How fitting a name, Eve being the first woman to be tempted to "be like God" and make her own decisions about her body)

exposes users to more hormones than previously disclosed, the Associated Press reported Nov. 11. The higher level of hormones brings an increased risk of blood clots and other serious side effects.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer have found that estrogen-progesterone oral contraceptives are carcinogenic. And for those about to dismiss the IARC as some religious nuts posing as scientists, first consider that they are the cancer research division of the World Health Organization. And I don't think religious zealots and WHO exactly go hand in hand.
