Birth Control Sex Is Like Vomiting in Ancient Rome

Birth control pills allow a total separation of “sex” from procreation, the Belgian physician Philippe Schepens pointed out.

Talking at the Roman Humanae-Vitae Conference (October 28) he compared this to the decadent period in Rome when the rich started to separate gastronomy from nutrition, through use of the vomitorium, a place where one could vomit during meals in order to make room for more food.

Schepens concluded, “By the same token the practice of hormonal contraception followed by abortion in the case of error entirely separates the sexual act from procreation.”

Ahhh yes here is the perfect example of a problem for the Vatican. An intelligent layman.

Unfortunately, this is probably false. The original meaning of a word vomitorium is something else entirely (it means ground level gates of amphitheatre).

Perfect analogy! Thank you, Dr. Schepens. (A definite meme soon to follow.) The pro-aborts are obsessed with separating sex from procreation: the ultimate anti-woman, anti-family, anti-society objective.
