Ethical Issues with the Contraception World View

Introduction:

The mindset that leads to contraception is only self-serving and self-centered. People use contraception for selfish reasons every day. Children should be seen as a blessing from God, and He should decide when a couple has children. Today people try to use contraception so that they may decide when to have children. This is selfish and defies God. Different churches have different beliefs about contraception. Up until about 1920 -1930, all the churches had the same views on contraception. It’s hard to understand why non-Catholic churches changed their view to allow contraceptives. A big reason they think it is okay to use is because of overpopulation. It is a fact that the population has been increasing. There is no biblical basis or history of Judeo Christian ancestry of wanting to limit (reduce God’s blessing).

People using contraceptives in the modern world rarely use it because of overpopulation. It is known that having condoms and the pill available everywhere, even to teens, has led to casual sex (including pre-marital), leading to STD’s, as well as unwanted pregnancies, which lead to abortion.
