Hannity & Repentance

I listen and watch Sean Hanity from time to time.  Personally I don’t care for Mr. Hanity a whole lot.  He sell’s conservatism in a nice package but is he really “A Great American” as he claims?  A few years back, before his head was bigger than it is now, he got into an

Contraception

In 1965 the Supreme Court case Griswold v. Connecticut the court ruled that the US Constitution protected a right to privacy. The case involved a Connecticut law that prohibited the use of contraceptives. By a vote of 7-2, the Supreme Court invalidated the law on the grounds that it violated the "right to marital privacy". The case was brought forward by our dear friends at Planned Parenthood who’s program director had discussed contraception with a married couple, and got a doctor to prescribed the couple a birth-control device.

The majority of the Court summarized their ruling by saying, "Would we allow the police to search the sacred precincts of marital bedrooms for telltale signs of the use of contraceptives? The very idea is repulsive to the notions of privacy…."

However, Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart disagreed saying that he could find no "right of privacy" in the Constitution of the United States and wrote in his dissent in the case, "Since 1879 Connecticut has had on its books a law which forbids the use of contraceptives by anyone…. What provision of the Constitution, then, makes this state law invalid? The Court says it is the right of privacy ‘created by several fundamental constitutional guarantees.’

The world was told that contraception would bring;

1. Worry Free Sex without consequences
2. Stabilize Marriages through increased control over family planning
3. Lower the Divorce Rate
4. Prevent Crisis Pregnancy
5. Prevent Child Abuse
6. Reduce Poverty through Population Control
7. Prevent Abortion
8. Protect against Sexually Transmitted Diseases

So what has this landmark decision by the Supreme Court and a contracepting society brought to our country since 1965?

1. The divorce rate has doubled since the ruling
2. Cohabitation has now become acceptable in society
3. Increased single parent homes has gone from 9% to 30% (children living with one parent)
4. Legal abortion came within 8 years of the ruling (after all what are we to do when contraception fails)
5. 60% of Abortions are due to failed contraception
6. Fertility rates have dropped significantly and are now barely above the replacement rate
7. Unmarried households with children have increased from approx 150,000 to 1,800,000
8. 2/3rds of adults disagree with the statement "the main rational for marriage is children"

Maybe its time for the world to brush the dust off Pope Paul VI’s encyclical Humanae Vitae which will be 40 years old this July 25th. Humane Vitae can now be found at www.GetToMass.com under the Documents & Writings menu.
