Do I dare have final thoughts? Well, Dr. Popcak does and in a way that really does get to the heart of the controversy, in my opinion.
I for one am not scandalized by Church teaching. I am encouraged, inspired, and personally challenged by it on a daily basis. In the end, my only points are these:
Good Catholics may or may not use Attachment Parenting. Good Catholics may or may not use Natural Family Planning for the purpose of limiting family size or spacing children. The Church requires neither of us. Couples who are discerning what’s best for themselves and their families should prayerfully read Church teaching and seek God’s opinion on the matter. No one else’s really matters.
