ROME, Aug 30 ( – Speaking to academics from the John Paul II Pontifical Institute for Life and Family on Friday, Pope John Paul condemned the push to “eliminate the corporal mediation in the conjugal act as the occasion where a new human life can have its origin.”  He explained that excluding the conjugal act”degrades procreation to the level of a technically controlled reproduction” so that “collaboration with God the Creator and the personal dignity is lost”.
