William E. May
A Church teaching, such as that on contraception, does not depend for its authority on the reasoning advanced in its support.

A refutation of the case for contraception can help to dissuade people from contraception itself as well as from its extensions. In this excellent tract, Professor May has admirably provided that refutation as well as a convincing exposition of the reasons for the Church's teaching on the subject.
