Birth control
Question from Maria on 2/4/2014:

I recently was hired as a pharmacy technician. Some of the drugs that I label and dispense are birth control pills. As a Catholic is this morally right for me to be doing?

Answer by Judie Brown on 2/7/2014:

Dear Maria

Here are Papal statements that should assist you in making the right decision based on Catholic teaching:

This is clear and to the point from exhortation of Benedict XVI in Oct 2007:

JP2 made a similar statement around Oct or Nov of 1992 ...it can be googled on this website:
