CWN Editor's Note: Nine scientists have published a critique of Theological Ethics for Life, a book published by the Vatican publishing house that presents the proceedings of a conference organized by the Pontifical Academy for Life.

The work questions the Church’s teaching on contraception, and Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, the Academy’s president, said that the work is intended to “introduce a paradigm shift.”

Dr. Jokin de Irala, a member of the pontifical academy, was among the scientists who wrote the critique.

    A correction is nice but the damage is done. The book will be pounced upon as proof of the Church's "conformity" to secular views while the correction will never see the light of day; it should be published along with the book. The Pontifical Academy for Death should be dissolved.
