To the Editor The authors of a Viewpoint1 stated that “The [Catholic] Church opposes artificial means of birth control based on the belief that each and every marital sexual act must be open to the possibility of the transmission of life.” They then stated that “A similar system of beliefs is shared, in part, by other faiths, including Orthodox Judaism and certain other Christian churches.” This statement is incorrect.
