Peter wrote:

Hi, guys —

A woman told me that when she was in college a few years ago she was taking the Pill for hormone therapy.

She said her parish priest criticized her even though she wasn't sexually active.

  • I don't believe she did anything wrong; am I right?


  { Is there anything wrong with taking the Pill for hormone therapy? }

Fr. Francis replied:

Hi, Peter —

Yes, the pill is often used for other physical therapies. In this case, the woman was doing nothing wrong since it was a prescription drug and she wasn't sexually active.

Fr. Francis

P.S. I do have some hesitation how physically safe the pill is, even for these cases.
