It basically includes three groups or types: Contraception, Contravention, Abortion, and considered the best way, abstinence. It is also considered a group of combination pills containing a mixture of estrogen and progesterone to prevent ovulation. Birth control affected woman all around the world and in general, the 20th century, because of the great impact that it made on the community.

His real name was Karol Józef Wojtya and before been a Pope, he was a Cardinal with the name of “S. Cesareo”.

He exercised his ministry with a tireless missionary spirit, dedicating it all his energy to the charity of all the poor people who deserved it, which develop his new way to manage the person’s view of the Catholic Church, including non-religious people on the 20th century.
