Abortion: Legacy of Contraception

Print Print

In this talk, Father Paul Marx, O.S.B., founder of Human Life International, describes the destruction caused by the use of contraception. He explains that abortion and contraception are psychologically and metaphysically connected to each other. Because they are so strongly linked, Fr. Marx believes that priests and bishops that speak out against contraception do more to save babies than anything else they could do. Babies are the future – the future of couples, nations and the Church. Learn the truth about contraception and how it damages that future.
