Pope decries artifical procreation; fertility treatments as "arrogant"

    The older I get, the more out of touch the Catholic Church seems to be....

    Why does the church seem to be obsessed with sex anyway?

    Pope decries artifical procreation; fertility treatments as ‘arrogant’

    The comments reaffirm the decision Catholic leadership has held on artifical reproduction since 2008


    Pope tells infertile couple to shun 'arrogant' IVF treatment as sex between husband and wife is the 'only acceptable' way to conceive

    Couples struggling with fertility shouldn’t bother looking to the Catholic Church for help.
    Speaking at the end of three-day convention on diagnosing and treating infertility at the Vatican, Pope Benedict XVI slammed artificial procreation and fertility treatments. Marriage was the only place to create a human being, he said.
    The comments reaffirm the decision Catholic leadership has held on artificial reproduction since 2008.
    “The human and Christian dignity of procreation, in fact, doesn’t consist in a ‘product,’” he said, “ but in its link to the conjugal act, an expression of the love of the spouses of their union, not only biological but also spiritual.”
    The pope is pressing for a ban on artificial procreation and called on science and fertility experts to resist “easy income, or even worse the arrogance of taking the place of the Creator.”
    In 2008, the Catholic Church banned modern reproductive technologies including in vitro fertilization, arguing it was just as wrong as destroying embryos for stem cell research.
    “The desire for a child cannot justify the production of offspring, just as the desire not to have a child cannot justify the abandonment or destruction of a child once he or she has been conceived,”
    Vatican officials wrote at the time.

    On Saturday, the Pope did offer hope for couples who are struggling to become parents: He said the church encourages medical research on infertility. -WTF?!?!?!

    the Pope lives a life of elitist entitlement, and he is out of touch with reality ... so his points are therefore invalid.

    When God makes your womb a barren place where seed can find no purchase you should just accept it.

    "All right, go!" Jesus commanded them. So the demons came out of the men and entered the pigs, and the whole herd plunged down the steep hillside into the lake and drowned in the water.

    a married couple that seeks fertility treatment will likely value and love their baby more so than an unplanned pregnancy

    Hey and eerie resemblance

    Gotta agree with the dude on this one. There are plenty of needy orphans who would flourish in loving homes; IVF is just another narcissistic way for people to reject what the universe is trying to tell them -- not. meant. to. be.
