“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.

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...]

“Mutual masturbation.” That is how author and Notre Dame professor, Charles Rice describes contraceptive sex in his book, Fifty Questions on Natural Law (Ignatius Press: San Francisco, 1995, pg. 254). This seems like a crude assessment. Why would he say this? As Professor Rice describes in his book, contraceptive sex disrupts and even contradicts the […][click to continue...]
“Their findings were stunning. Basically, it boils down to this: There is no evidence to indicate that condoms prevent the heterosexual transmission of most sexually transmitted diseases. None,” writes Mary Beth Bonacci.[click to continue...]
They don’t care about the health and well-being of their students. If they did, they would not be encouraging a promiscuous lifestyle by their youth.
But instead, they support a cause. And the children are the pawns they sacrifice to their false gods.
Their aim remains to undermine all forms of authority in the name of personal autonomy—especially parental authority.
For instance, the alkaline properties of crocodile dung supposedly made it useful for a barrier method and possible spermicide. All a woman of ancient Egypt had to do was stick a ball of it up you-know-where.
Ancient Chinese women would drink mercury to try to prevent becoming pregnant. Little did they know back then, in all likelihood, the brain and kidney damage they were causing!
