Here's a rhetorical question - How much intellectual heft do you have behind your position on controversial issues in our society?
I was looking for a document called Humanae Vitae which delivers the "why" behind the Catholic Church's position on the abortion issue. In the process, I found an article written today with the title "The Men Behind the War on Women." I felt compelled to send the article's author the following email.
I avoid judging and focus on elevating truth through experiences, reading and discussion. A great majority on both sides of the abortion issue choose their position without any depth of education and understanding.
Not knowing you personally, please consider reading this papal encyclical if you have not already done so. It is called Humanae Vitae, written by Pope Paul VI. It gives the “why” in regards to the Catholic Church’s position on the abortion issue. Here is the link - http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/paul_vi/encyclicals/documents/hf_p-vi_enc_25071968_humanae-vitae_en.html
My hope is to create more understanding and collaboration in our world.
