Humanae Vitae (Of Human Life), was made public Monday after a five-year study. It reaffirmed in uncompromising and conservative terms the church's centuries-old opposition to any artificial means of birth control.
The encyclical has been
strongly criticized by many Catholics around the world.
“We wish to speak to you of the feelings that filled our heart during the long period of
preparation of our encyclical Humanae Vitae,” the Pope told his visitors today in his first public comment since, the
encyclical was issued.
"The knowledge cf our grave responsibility cost us no small suffering. We well knew of the heated discussions in the press. The anguish of those involved in the problem touched us also.
“We studied and read all we could. We consulted eminent
Moderates Take Control In Beirut
BEIRUT, Lebanon (UPI>-President Ahmed Hassan Al-Bakr turned control of the Iraqi government over to his party’s moderate wing today cm the strength of a coup within a coup that ousted the men who put Al-Bakr in power July 17.
Since a non-violent coup two weeks ago the moderate wing af the Arab socialist party Al-Bakr heads had shared power with a group of young nationalists led by the premier, Lt. Col. Abdel Raz/ak Ai-Naif, and the defense minister, Lt. Gen. Abdel Rahman Al-Daoud.
It was Al-Nalf and Al-Daoud who led the drive to oust the leftist regime of former President Abdel Rahman Aref and put Al-Bakr in office.
Al-Bakr went on Baghdad radio Tuesday to tell the Iraqi people to had sacked Al-Naif and Al-Daoud.
Reports that reached Beirut said the two men were out of the country.
Al-Bakr also dismissed the 26-member cabinet formed July 18 by Al-Nalf.
Al-Bakr told his people that Al-Naif and Al-Daoud had been plotting to bring reactionary elements Into the cabinet and change the nation’s oil policy.
The second coup In two weeks was without violence although tanks took up positions outside the presidential palace and Baghdad radio station.
Al-Bakr said his regime would try to establish democracy in Iraq and follow a national oil policy “independent from the foreign monopolies.’’ It was a reference to the internationally owned Iraq Petroleum Co., which exploits the nation’s main oil production.
.Noncandidate Reagan Looks To Third Ballot
MIAMI BEACH (UPI) — Gov. Ronald Reagan today made a whirlwind personal appearance tour of the Republican National Convention scene and held strategy talks with advisers who believe he has a good chance to win the GOP presidential nomination on the third ballot.
Although still insisting "I am not a candidate,’’ Reagan appeared to share his boosters’ optimism about his prospects.
“I believe the convention is wide open,” the California
governor told reporters. “Anyone can get the nomination.” Reagan said he is not allied with Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller in an attempt to stop the front-runner, Richard M. Nixon. But he agreed with Rockefeller strategists that Nixon is losing some of the delegates he’d
counted as his, and can no longer expect a first ballot victory.
With 667 votes needed to win the nomination, the latest UPI count showed 684 delegates
committed or leaning to Nixon, 290 for Rockefeller and 165 for Reagan. Nixon’s total included 203 committed and 481 leaning to him.
Rockefeller and Reagan partisans have the same aim at the conventical—to combine their votes with those of favorite son candidates to deny the nomination to Nixon on the first two ballots. They assume that Nixon then would fade quickly from contention.

persons. And we sought in prayer the ald of the Holy Spirit in interpreting the divine law which flows from the inner need of human love from the essential structure of marriage and from the personal dignity of the wedded couple.
“Finally, our labor was accompanied by hope that this document will be accepted for its truth. Hope, above all, that Christian married couples will understand that its teaching is but the manifestation of their true love, an imitation at the
love of Christ for the church.” Many Catholic theologians criticized the eycyclical and among them were 87 in Washington, D.C, who said the Pope’s decision was not binding upon Catholics.
"The encyclical is not an infallible teaching,’’ their statement said.
"History shows that a number of statements of similar or even greater authoritative weight have subsequently been proved inadequate or even erroneous,” the theologians said.
