The Pope drops Catholic ban on condoms in historic shift

The Pope has signalled a historic shift in the position of the Roman Catholic
Church by saying condoms can be morally justified.

After decades of fierce opposition to the use of all contraception, the
Pontiff has ended the Church’s absolute ban on the use of condoms.

He said it was acceptable to use a prophylactic when the sole intention was to
“reduce the risk of infection” from Aids.

While he restated the Catholic Church’s staunch objections to contraception
because it believes that it interferes with the creation of life, he argued
that using a condom to preserve life and avoid death could be a responsible
act – even outside marriage.
