This year is the 50th anniversary of one of the most significant and controversial encyclical letters of the last several hundred years – Humanae Vitae. In that encyclical, Pope Paul VI reaffirmed Catholic teachings regarding marriage and family, most notably reaffirming the prohibition of any use of contraception. The encyclical was, and remains, quite divisive within Catholic circles. And given the large role the Catholic Church plays in social services and medical care, the encyclical has reverberated throughout the culture for the last 50 years.
The USU Catholic Newman Center is sponsoring a documentary film and discussion on the topic. On Wednesday, Oct 3, from 6-8pm, we will watch “Unprotected: A Pope, the Pill, and the Perils of Sexual Chaos”. Eccles Sciences Learning Center, room 053. After the film, there will be a discussion time led by Dr Sherlock and Dr Kleiner.
All are welcome.
