  • Description

    AS A RESULT OF THE POPE'S ENCYCLOPEDIA ON BIRTH CONTROL, ITALIAN NEWSPAPER AND MAGAZINES ARE, FOR THE FIRST TIME, DISCUSSING THE USE OF THE PILL AND OTHER METHODS OF CONTRACEPTION. MEANWHILE, THE CONTRACEPTIVE PILL IS ON SALE IN ITALIAN CHEMISTS' SHOPS AND IS NOW BEING SOLD OPENLY.

    AFTER THEIR EARLY COVERAGE OF THE POPE'S ENCYCLICAL, THE ITALIAN PRESS IS NOW FEATURING HEADLINE STORIES ABOUT THE PILL, THEREBY BREAKING A TRADITIONAL SILENCE ON THE SUBJECT. AND ITALIANS, UNUSED TO SEEING THE PROBLEM DISCUSSED, ARE FLOCKING TO THE NEWSSTANDS TO READ ABOUT IT.

    AND, DESPITE THE POPE'S RULING THAT CATHOLICS SHOULD USE NO FORM OF CONTRACEPTION, SALES OF THE PILL IN ITALY ARE HIGH.

    THE FREEDOM OF DISCUSSION IS MAKING THE PURCHASE OF THE CONTRACEPTION PILL A MORE ACCEPTABLE AFFAIR.
