So by the same line of reasoning, to ask a woman to carry as many pregnancies as is physically possible, to expect her to go beyond openness to life and to demand total surrender of her will and her intellect in the realm of family planning and mothering..also is unethical. So is forcing a woman to alter her body, either chemically or surgically or by means of a barrier, so that she is conveniently available for use without fear of repercussion.Even if she is a willing participant, an enthusiastic participant, even, in her own sterilization..is still a grave violation of her human dignity.).Abortion (53) Advent & Christmas (19) Beauty (3) Bioethics (4) Book reviews (1) Books (55) Church history (18) Church teaching (40) Contraception (34) Culture (131) Current Events (106) Dating (15) Death (8) Depression (14) Divorce (7) Education (14) Eucharist (4) Exercise (3) Faith (232) Family (99) Fashion (5) Feminism (14) Fertility (4) Fitness (1) Food (4) Forgiveness (20) Friendship (19) Generosity (4) Girl Scouts (2) Grieving (1) Health (24) Home Management (17) homosexuality (1) Humor (15) Leadership (4) lent (2) Lent & Easter (13) Liturgical Year (12) Marian devotion (9) Marriage (40) Mature Years (5) Meditations (17) Mental illness (1) Mercy (3) Military Families (2) Ministry (6) Miscarriage (1) Motherhood (69) Movies (3) Music (5) Natural Family Planning (6) Nutrition (5) Parenting (55) Personal Growth (108) Politics (7) Pope Francis (7) Pornography (5) Prayer (36) Pro-Life (31) Psychology (1) Reflections (10) Relationships (44) Religious freedom (11) Religious Vocation (1) Saints (18) Scripture (7) Service (9) Sexuality (21) Single years (4) Social justice (1) Social Networking (5) Special Needs (3) Spirituality (4) Suffering (15) Suicide (1) Travel (11) United Nations (1) Welcome (1) Women in the Church (7) Women's Health (21) Workplace (14) Writings of the Saints (12) Young Women (41) Amy De Rosa (1) Amy Welborn (1) Annette K.Tenny (1) Bridget Green (1) Cheryl Dickow (73) Christopher Stefanick (1) Clare Hinshaw (8) CNA Staff (2) Colleen Carroll Campbell (8) Deb OHara-Rusckowski (1) Elise Harris (1) Elise Italiano (6) Emily Stimpson (1) Fathers for Good (2) Fr.
