Chastity Group uses Anscombe's Name

Is this the same Elizabeth Anscombe who was a student of Wittgenstein? Looks like yes.

"The group is named after Elizabeth Anscombe, the Cambridge University Anglo-Catholic whose 1977 essay "Contraception and Chastity" is famous among conservative Roman Catholics for setting out a philosophical defense of the papacy's strictures on sexual behavior. She died in 2001."
