“Contraception is in fact not just an action without meaning; it is an action that contradicts the essential meaning which true conjugal intercourse should have as signifying total and unconditional self-donation. Instead of accepting each other totally, contraceptive spouses reject part of each other, because fertility is part of each one of them.

“When, therefore through contraception, married couples remove from the exercise of their conjugal sexuality its potential procreative capacity, they claim a power which belongs solely to God: the power to decide in a final analysis the coming into existence of a human person.”[click to continue...]
In the end, Galvin’s thesis reads, “[Humanae Vitae] substantially altered the traditional teaching by wiping the slate clean of centuries of doctrine and then propos[ed] an entirely new way to view marriage and procreation.”[click to continue...]
“If there is a child that you don’t want or can’t feed or educate, give that child to me. I will not refuse any child. I will give a home, or find loving parents for him or for her.”[click to continue...]
Irreligion can be broken down into three categories. I will attempt to show how using contraception violates each subcategory of irreligion. In effect, I will show how using contraception violates the First Commandment, as a result. Hopefully this will help answer the question why is the Catholic Church against contraception.[click to continue...]
