Website Review: Pope Paul VI Institute

A review based on:


This website is actually a collection of sites published by the Pope Paul VI Institute for the Study of Human Reproduction. It includes not only, but also and These sites provide information on the Institute and its work, as well as some educational information on the topic of women's health and fertility.

Founded by Dr. Thomas Hilgers 1985, the Pope Paul VI Institute answers the call to scientists and physicians issued by Paul VI in Humanae Vitae. It "pursues the development of a morally and professionally acceptable reproductive health service," and "is committed to the development of a culture of life based on responsible parenthood, responsible fertility regulation, and ethical means for the treatment of infertility and related reproductive disorders."

This Institute is at the forefront of medical technology and helps to bridge the gap between the Church's teachings on human sexuality and the application of effective treatment for infertility. This is an excellent resource not only for all married couples, but also for those in the medical profession.
