Science, Birth Control, and the Roman Catholic Church
Baker, Jeffrey J.
Bioscience, 20, 3, 143-150, 70 Feb
Discusses human difficulty in grasping large numbers and long range truths. Gives history of the Roman Catholic Birth Control Commission and the Pope's issuing of the Humanae Vitae alongside data on population growth and related problems. Contrasts the birth control issue with other conflicts between science and the Catholic Church, pointing out practical and political implications which make it impossible for scientists to ignore the church's stand.
