WHAT do you think?
Is it wrong for married people to use contraception?
Your answer may well depend on your religious convictions.
The Catholic Church teaches that every action designed to impede procreation “is intrinsically evil.”
Catholic dogma promotes the idea that each act of sexual intercourse between marriage mates must remain open to pregnancy. For the Catholic Church, then, contraception is “morally unacceptable.”
Hence, married couples may decide for themselves whether they will raise a family, how many children they will have, and when they will have them.
The Scriptures, likewise, do not condemn birth control. From a Biblical point of view, then, whether a husband and wife choose to use some nonabortive method of contraception is really a personal decision.
Why, though, does the Catholic Church condemn contraception?
So if a couple should decide to exclude the possibility of a pregnancy by using some form of contraception, that is their choice to make, and no one should judge them.—Romans 14:4, 10-13.
