Sex, Violence, and Justice: Contraception and the Catholic Church by Aline H. Kalbian

In 1968, Pope Paul VI published Humanae vitae, the encyclical that reaffirmed the Catholic Church's continued opposition to the use of any form of artificial contraception. Aline Kalbian outlines the Church's position against artificial contraception as principally rooted in three biblical commandments. Her deeper investigation into these issues helps show how discourses about sexuality, both in the Church and in culture more broadly, are often tied to discourses of violence, harm, and social injustice. Even the most tradition-bound communities rely on justificatory schemes that are fluid and diverse. This is especially the case with artificial contraception, an issue that is often difficult to categorize. Taking this diversity seriously helps us to understand how religious traditions change and develop.
