Volume 1, Part 22

A fundamental presupposition in our efforts to build a culture of life is the truth that Our Lord Jesus Christ has already won the victory of life AND that He guides and empowers us to be victorious in our struggle against sin and secularization of our culture. A second fundamental presupposition is the truth that there is an essential relationship between respect for the sanctity of human life AND respect for the integrity of marriage and family.

"The attack on the...life of the unborn has its origin in an erroneous view of human sexuality, which attempts to eliminate, by mechanical or chemical means, the essentially procreative nature of the conjugal act. The error maintains that the artificially altered conjugal act retains its integrity. The claim is that the act remains unitive or loving, even though the procreative nature of the act has been radically violated. In fact, it is not unitive, for one or both of the partners withholds an essential part of the gift of self, which is the essence of the conjugal union. The so-called "contraceptive mentality" is essentially anti-life...The manipulation of the conjugal act...has led to many forms of violence to marriage and family life...Through the spread of the contraceptive mentality...human sexuality is no longer seen as the gift of God, which draws a man and a woman together, in a bond of lifelong and faithful love, crowned by the gift of new human life, but, rather, as a tool for personal gratification. Once sexual union is no longer seen to be, by its very nature, procreative, human sexuality is abused in ways that are profoundly harmful and indeed destructive of individuals and of society itself...Essential to the advancement of the culture of life is the proclamation of the truth about the conjugal union, in its fullness, and the correction of the contraceptive thinking which fears life, which fears procreation. (Archbishop Burke)"
