I must commend The Catholic Review for writing an article (May 6) on Dr. Sorra and her courageous decision to not distribute contraception to her patients. My husband and I are among many young Catholic couples who have been inspired and blessed by the teachings of John Paul II’s “Theology of the Body.” We were thrilled to find Sorra.
Many doctors today belittle couples who practice Natural Family Planning and pressure them to use contraception. Sadly this is the case even among doctors affiliated with Catholic hospitals. Sorra, however, promotes the dignity of the human person and the sacredness of sexuality. Six months ago she delivered our first baby and she was an incredible doctor. Most of my friends either go to her now or plan to in the future. We are blessed to have such a holy doctor in this archdiocese.
