Richard A. McCormick S.J. (1922-February 12, 2000) was a leading Catholic moral theologian who reshaped Catholic thought in the United States. He wrote many journal articles on Catholic social teachings and moral theory. He was an expert in Catholic medical ethics and for many years wrote the "Notes on Moral Theology" column in Theological Studies.
In an article in America magazine (July 17, 1993), McCormick wrote that the prohibition of any serious discussion of Humanae Vitae had led to "a debilitating malaise that has undermined the credibility of the magisterium in other areas."
