"What therefore God has joined together, let no man put asunder"(Mt 19:6).

 

Pope Benedict XVI shares his thoughts on the subject of family: the bonds that are created, the truth of marriage, and the vocation of love that enables us to become loving people. He emphasizes that marriage is between a man and woman and that trust, responsibility, sharing and loving are nurtured in the family.

This Instruction from the Vatican Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) provides guidance on how to respect human life and human procreation in our heavily scientific age. The Instruction occurs in three parts. The first part explains the Church's fundamental teaching on human life and procreation. The second part addresses new problems in procreation, including techniques for assisting fertility, freezing embryos, and preventing pregnancy. The third part covers new treatments involving the manipulation of the embryo or the human genetic patrimony. This section covers issues such as gene therapy, human cloning, and the therapeutic use of stem cells.
