My dear friends, my name is Damian McLeish, a retired attorney from Victory Park parish. I would like today to discuss abortifacient birth control, the method most commonly used, which can destroy new human life, and is thus a form of chemical abortion.

As a result of the Papal encyclical, Humanae Vitae, most Catholics know that all forms of artificial birth control are forbidden by the Catholic Church. However, many Catholics are not aware of the vast and crucially important distinction between CONTRACEPTIVE birth control, which involves the use of contraceptives only which prevent new life being formed, and ABORTIFACIENT birth control, which involves the use of abortifacients, which destroy new life after its formation.
