Padre Pio on birth control and abortion

Here lies a saint that God chose to make an example of, to get our attention. When alive, 40 years ago, this saint bore the wounds of Christ, the stigmata.

St. Pio defended the controversial encyclical, HUMANAE VITAE, praising its “lofty teachings” and “eternal truths.”

An aspect of the document often overlooked today is its grim warning that governments might “impose” contraceptive methods on citizens.

In the light of the Humanae Vitae’s other accurate predictions, are mandatory birth control and abortion on the horizon for America?

Such open rebellion against Peter’s successor was unprecedented, and yet he had done nothing more than his solemn duty to uphold the infallible, magisterial teaching of Catholicism against unnatural methods of birth control.
