Natural Family Planning

There is an unbreakable connection between the unitive meaning and the procreative meaning (of the conjugal act), and both are inherent in the conjugal act.  This connection was established by God and man is not permitted to break it through his own volition.

Humanae Vitae
Pope Paul VI
