The Smoke from the Big Tent inside the Vatican

And the answer is: “not immediatly with conception, but after” said Cardinal Martini,

How does Martini explain the theology of the Annunciation?

As in God, the creator of life, Who has the plan and executes it by creating people who have a destiny and implanting them in a woman's womb?

Precisely, Cardinal Martini approves the use of “ovocites at the state of two pronucleus.” According to him and Professor Marino, at this stage following fecundation, “no singular and definite sign of human life appears, it’s not an embryo yet and therefore it can be manipulated with no formal moral objection.”

On euthanasia, he says “We can never approve of it,” but he adds we shouldn’t “condemn persons that carries out such an act on the demand of persons reduced and by pure altruistic feelings.”
He advocates for the same respect for persons who follow their consciences in these extreme cases.”

A bizarre cartoon.

Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini said that in couples where one had HIV/Aids, which could pass to the partner, the use of condoms was "a lesser evil".

Not to mention the other lesser evil for folks who know that condoms leak, break and are ineffective.
