Sorry, but I don’t understand how the errant “German” Church can allow a pill to prevent IMPLANTATION of an embryo (zygote). That is NOT Catholic Church teaching and it is NOT medically true. A human child is produced at FERTILIZATION, when the sperm and egg unite. It cannot be stopped post intercourse. The only way a “pill” can hinder a pregnancy is by stopping the implantation of a conceived human child. That is precisely what the Pill and the Morning After Pill regime do.

This is another SAD example of Church leaders caving-in for the sake of money. Where is the courage of the saints these days? Pitiful, simply pitiful.

lifeknight, splendidly said. It is absolutely disgusting that any Catholic let alone a bishops conference would ignore rock solid Catholic teaching. I await Vatican action.

I am an orthodox Catholic who accepts all Catholic teaching on these issues, and yet I am totally confused by this report and others that suggest there exists some fine line after conception where implantation can morally be prevented. How can this be? It seems to me that cracks are appearing in the solidarity of Church teaching and the only thing that will come of it is the smoke of Satan.
