EWTN Catholic Q&A
Artificial contraception permitted bishops say
Question from Curious George on 08-06-2013:

"The German bishops decided Feb. 21 to allow Catholic hospitals to use the morning-after pill or other contraception in rape cases, provided that the medication acts as a contraceptive and not an abortifacient."

Since the bishops allow the use of artificial contraception, doesn't this show that its use isn't intrinsically wrong, and it may be used depending on the circumstances?

Answer by Judie Brown on 08-06-2013:

Dear George

The German Bishops erred in their decision.
