 Catholic Culture : Document Library : The Sexual Revolution Is Doomed
Marriage is instituted for the mutual assistance of man and woman and for the rearing and education of children, and thus we have a basic reason why divorce is impermissible, fornication is immoral, and all use of sexuality outside marriage is sinful.
Life comes from God ("And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the earth, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul"), and so it should be obvious that abortion is intrinsically evil.
Whereas traditional courtship reserves sexual pleasure until marriage, viewing sex as a nuptial right that must be earned with the public promise of eternal fidelity and a lifetime of commitment, the sexual revolution with its propaganda about "safe sex" has made sex a recreational pastime available to anyone.
