Just as man does not have unlimited dominion over his body in general, so also, and with more particular reason, he has no such dominion over his specifically sexual faculties, for these are concerned by their very nature with the generation of life, of which God is the source.

In carrying out this mandate, the Church has always issued appropriate documents on the nature of marriage, the correct use of conjugal rights, and the duties of spouses. Paul VI himself, even as commission members issued their personal views over the years, always reaffirmed the teachings of the Church, repeating them more than once in the first years of his Pontificate.

And yet there is no doubt that to many it will appear not merely difficult but even impossible to observe.

Consequently, unless we are willing that the responsibility of procreating life should be left to the arbitrary decision of men, we must accept that there are certain limits, beyond which it is wrong to go, to the power of man over his own body and its natural functions—limits, let it be said, which no one, whether as a private individual or as a public authority, can lawfully exceed.


In the procreative faculty the human mind discerns biological laws that apply to the human person.

If this unity is broken, if only the body is satisfied, love becomes a commodity. These laws must be wisely and lovingly observed.

Therapeutic means necessary to cure diseases are exempted, even if a foreseeable impediment to procreation should result, but only if infertility is not directly intended.

He who loves his wife loves himself. It could well happen, therefore, that when people, either individually or in family or social life, experience the inherent difficulties of the divine law and are determined to avoid them, they may give into the hands of public authorities the power to intervene in the most personal and intimate responsibility of husband and wife.

AAS 43pgs. Neither is it valid to argue, as a justification for sexual intercourse which is deliberately contraceptive, that a lesser evil is to be preferred to a greater one, or that such intercourse would merge with procreative acts of past and future to form a single entity, and so be qualified by exactly the same moral goodness as these.

If simultaneous progress is made in these various fields, then the intimate life of parents humanaee children in the family will be rendered not only more tolerable, but easier and more joyful. The Church urges man not to betray his personal responsibilities by putting all his faith in technical expedients.

This course of action shows that the Church, loyal to the example and teaching of the divine Savior, is sincere and unselfish in her regard for men whom she strives to help even now during this earthly pilgrimage “to share God’s life as sons of the encilica God, the Father of all men.

Here We believe an almost limitless field lies open for the activities of the great international institutions.

Who will prevent public authorities from favoring those contraceptive methods which they consider more effective?
