Conjugal Love Receives a “Higher Value” through Natural Family Planning

Here is the first paragraph of this great article from HLI America by Christopher J. Stravitsh:

“The honorable practice of regulating birth rate…which is proper to the purity of married couples, far from harming conjugal love, rather confers on it a higher value” (Humanae Vitae, n. 21).

The growing number of “NFP couples” indicates that many couples find truth and encouragement in Paul VI’s words and in their practice of Natural Family Planning. Intuitively they have experienced the “higher value” that is conferred on their conjugal love through the “honorable practice of regulating birth.”
