Popis This presentation informs the audience that periodical abstinence is still (!) the only contraceptive method officially allowed for Catholic Christians - this means 1.3 billion people worldwide are forbidden to use (modern) contraception. The presentation discusses the healthcare and environmental consequences of the Church’s Ban on Contraception (unintended and adolescent pregnancies, induced abortions, spread of sexually transmitted infections and AIDS/HIV pandemic, rapid population growth in Sub-Saharan Africa). It further discusses both global positive effects of contraception just as individual positive effects of contraception. The presentation also underlines the fact that contraceptive care is never coercive, rejects any forced state interventions in favor of contraception; on the contrary, it respects women’s autonomy, and as such, it is a truly humanitarian intervention. The presentation concludes by proclaiming women’s autonomy to freely choose their preferable contraception if they choose to use it.
