As a Protestant, I say that this is an area where the Catholic Church has been right all along.
As a fellow Protestant I concur. Our society’s acceptance of abortions and marriage redefinition would never have happened without it.
Protestants on Birth Control:
‘Martin Luther once proclaimed that “the purpose of marriage is not pleasure and ease but the procreation and education of children and the support of a family.... People who do not like children are swine, dunces, and blockheads, not worthy to be called men and women, because they despise the blessing of God, the Creator and Author of marriage” (Christian History, Issue 39, p. 24). Luther also said that birth control was the equivalent of sodomy (probably because of the likeness between homosexual wickedness and impotent sex). John Calvin declared that birth control was the murder of future persons and the Synod of Dort issued a Bible commentary which stated that contraception was the same as abortion. If you are shocked, by the strong statements from these Godly men, that really is not too surprising, because Protestant opposition to birth control has largely been forgotten in our decadent 21th century.’
and the Washington Post of all sources on the evil of contraception back in 1931!
Many Protestants reject artificial means of contraception, and I applaud them.
Humane Vitae said it all, but to summarize the problem with The Pill simply and crudely, it’s the difference between using a woman as a sperm bank, or seeing her as a partner in raising children.
And liberals have the gall to say that induced sterility “liberates” women.
