The B.C. Catholic Paper - What Pope Francis actually said about contraception

bccatholic.ca [cached]

However, Dr. Melissa Moschella, a philosophy professor at The Catholic University of America, suggested that this may not be the case.
When talking about avoiding pregnancy in connection with the Zika virus, the Pope may not necessarily have been implying artificial contraceptive use, but may have been referencing Natural Family Planning, she said. Normally, if a married couple faces a serious reason to avoid pregnancy, the Church teaches that they may do so through Natural Family Planning, a process that involves identifying a woman's fertile periods and abstaining from sexual activity during those times. Moschella also explained that in the Africa case referenced by Pope Francis, the dispensation for the nuns was "not really an exception if you understand the rule." The case in question took place in the early 1960s, when the Vatican granted a dispensation to religious sisters living in the Belgian Congo who were in grave danger of rape due to civil unrest to use oral contraceptives. "In the case of rape, the person who's raped, from the moral perspective, has not engaged in a sexual act," Moschella said. "But that doesn't happen in the case of rape," Moschella stressed. However, Moschella said that this is "really different" from the situation surrounding the Zika virus.
