“Theological Ethics of Life: Scripture, Tradition, and Practical Challenges,” is an Italian language, 528-page synthesis of a theological seminar sponsored by the PAV in 2021.
About 30 people participated in this seminar, not all members of the Pontifical Academy for Life, “theologians and philosophers of different places of origin and intellectual orientation,” López explained.
The PAV board member pointed out that “some of the statements contained in the volume seem to be in contrast to the Magisterium of the Church.”
Among them are pronouncements in favor of “the possible legitimacy of contraception in certain cases,” in support of “the legitimacy of certain homologous assisted reproduction techniques under certain conditions (without loss of embryos),” and supporting “the non-existence of intrinsically evil actions.”
These positions violate what is prescribed in the magisterial documents Humanae vitae, Donum vitae, and Veritatis splendor, which, on the other hand, are affirmed in other parts of the book, according to López.
López also stated that “not all the contributions of the people who participated in the seminar are included in the text” and that “there were discordant and critical voices with what was stated in said text.”
