Archbishop Chaput on "Emergency Contraception"


Last week, The Denver Post published an excellent guest commentary from Denver Archbishop Charles J. Chaput concerning a Colorado state bill that would require hospitals to provide emergency contraception to victims of sexual assault.

One thing he mentions which I didn't know is that the Church approves of methods that prevent ovulation following a sexual assault. It makes perfect sense, I just never thought about it. He also makes the point that a emergency contraception in the form of "the morning after pill" could have the doubly sad effect of terminating a desired pregnancy instead of one brought about by the sexual assault.

It is a powerfully and truthfully argued piece. Check it out if you have the time.
