In the 1960s, the majority of Roman Catholic bishops almost voted to permit contraception--then something changed.
These days, the Catholic Church vehemently regards all contraceptive methods as contrary to the Church pro-life stance. While these teachings are proclaimed by the Catholic hierarchy, Catholic women nonetheless use contraception at the same rates of non-Catholic women.
Join RCRC for an insightful discussion as historian Elaine Tyler May and Catholics for Choice president Jamie Manson explore the theology and politics of Catholic opposition to contraception. This important conversation will be moderated by ethicist Kate Ott.
