As Susan puts it so well, “The decision to have children ceases to be something that people plan for by becoming married. Instead, it is viewed as extraneous to marriage as an institution.”[click to continue...]
Where contraception users seek to have the pleasure of sex without the consequence of any resulting child, IVF seeks to flip that around. It bypasses the need for sexual intimacy and skips straight to playing god by creating, storing, and then implanting human embryos into women. All because society bought the premise that sex and babies can be separated. Lord, have mercy.[click to continue...]
“Certainly, from the moral point of view contraception and abortion are specifically different evils: the former contradicts the full truth of the sexual act as the proper expression of conjugal love, while the latter destroys the life of a human being; the former is opposed to the virtue of chastity in matrimony, the latter is opposed to the virtue of justice and directly violates the divine commandment ‘You shall not kill.’ But despite their differences of nature and moral gravity, contraception and abortion are often closely connected, as fruits of the same tree” (Evangelium Vitae, 13, March 25, 1995, emphasis added).[click to continue...]

Please be more clear on just what we mean when we say, “contraception, fatal to the faith?”
What do we mean by the title and what is the thesis of this presentation? We mean that professed Catholics who practice contraception either give up the practice of contraception or they give up their Catholic faith.[click to continue...]
“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. They reject part of their mutual love: its power to be fruitful… A couple may say: we do not want our love to be fruitful. But if that is so, there is an inherent contradiction in their trying to express their love by means of an act which, of its nature, implies fruitful love; and there is even more of a contradiction if, when they engage in the act, they deliberately destroy the fertility-orientation from which precisely derives its capacity to express the uniqueness of their love” (L’Osservatore Romano, October 10, 1988, loc. cit.).[click to continue...]
If marital intercourse, therefore, expresses a unique relationship and union, this derives not from the sharing of a sensation but from the sharing of a power – of a sexual power that is complementary and extraordinary, and which is extraordinary precisely in virtue of its life-relatedness.[click to continue...]
Instead, the culture has convinced multiple generations in a row now that limited family size is best for all involved. It is supposed to lead to more personal happiness for all couples, too. After all, with few or zero kids around, couples can more easily afford fancier vehicles, a bigger house, more technological gadgets, more vacations, and so forth.
But does it? Does getting married without being ready to start a family lead to personal happiness and fulfillment?[click to continue...]
Everett continues, “If [the female teenager] starts using birth control very early—abortion as a method of birth control very early— she will continue to use it as a method of birth control throughout her childbearing years.[click to continue...]
