 Our Description

The Infertility Companion for Catholics
Spiritual and Practical Support for Couples
Angelique Ruhi-Lopez and Carmen Santamaria
Forword by John and Claire Grabowski

One in every six United States couples experience infertility, but Catholic couples face additional confusion, worry, and frustration as they explore the medical options available to them.  Filling a major void in Catholic resources, The Infertility Companion for Catholics describes the Church's teaching on reproductive technologies and provides a rich spiritual perspective on the emotions and faith involved in embracing the cross of infertility.

"This personal witness of two couples' faith journey struggling with infertility is uplifting and refreshing.  Extremely we researched and solidly within the teaching of the Catholic Church.  Highly recommended!" - Rev. Alfred Cioffi, Senior Fellow, National Catholic bioethics Center

Thank God infertility has not been a cross I have had to bear, but I have a lot of friends who have suffered from secondary infertility and my son's Godparents were never able to have a baby. They are devout Catholics who wanted to follow the Church's teachings. They knew IVF was immoral, but when they went to talk to their pastor about adoption, they learned that, at least in his opinion, at least one of the procedures they did was against Church teachings. I have other friends who rejected the same procedure-a procedure our diocesan paper specifically said was licit.  Clearly, there is a need for a resource that not only gives the Church's "ruling"on various procedures, but also explains the reasoning behind those rulings so that when faced with decisions about unknown procedures, couples will have the information needed to evaluate them.
