    As Americans rethought sex in the twentieth century, the Catholic Church's teachings on the divisive issue of contraception in marriage were in many ways central. In a fascinating history, Leslie Woodcock Tentler traces changing attitudes: from the late nineteenth century, when religious leaders of every variety were largely united in their opposition to contraception; to the s, when. Until the 17th century, prevalent Catholic thought was that the moment of ensoulment happened long after conception. Thomas Aquinas () maintained Aristotle’s “calculation” that ensoulment occurred around the 40th day for males, and the 90th for females.   Pope after pope has reaffirmed the Catholic ban on contraception. Pope Francis is the latest in a long line to say it’s a sin.
