10 Reasons Free Contraception Is A Terrible Idea
10 - The pill may cause chemical abortions by changing the lining of the uterus in a woman so that should a newly created child should be created by fertilization of a women's egg, the baby cannot implant into the uterus and is flushed out of the woman and killed.
9 - It causes a multitude of side-effects. They include:
- Increased risk of cancer
- Decreased libido
- Weight gain
- Blood Clots
- Mood changes
8 - If you are responsible enough to have sex, you should be responsible enough for a baby. But, contraception tells us that sex and babies are two separate things. Thus, we have "accidental pregnancies" when someone uses contraception. No pregnancy is an "accident" because everything happened just as nature intended.
7 - Parents would be bypassed in order to get contraception to children. Another case of the government usurping the role of parents.
6 - The Bible says that fertility is a blessing. Contraception says fertility is a curse or a disease that we need to "fix" with a pill, shot, or implant. The first command given to both Adam and Eve is to "be fertile and multiply."
5 - Contraception does not help families or marriages. In fact, the divorce rate and the use of contraception mirror one another. But, when a couple uses Natural Family Planning the divorce rate is tiny and marriages are rated much better.
4 - Contraception makes a woman into an object. When a woman's fertility is seen as a bad thing, then the whole person is not respected. The woman is thought of as an object to be used for mere pleasure. Pope Paul VI predicted this outcome in his encyclical Humanae Vitae.
3 - Contraception fails and lulls people into a false sense of security. The only 100% proven way of not getting pregnant is abstinence. We see that the only proven way to reduce AIDS in Africa was a program in Uganda that focused on abstinence and faithfulness. Condoms and contraception have always failed.
2 - Natural Family Planning (NFP) is ALWAYS a better option. Check this out if you doubt it. Remember also that contraception became mainstreamed in our country after a marketing campaign by Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood. She wanted to rid the world of the "undesirables" by contracepting them out of existence. Many of her ideas on eugenics were used by the Nazis. Her history is scary. She is the mother of contraception (pardon the pun).
1 - To create life with God is the most powerful thing two people can do together. Sexuality is not just about pleasure. It is about real love, the bonding of the spouses, and the openness to life. Sexuality is so much more than our modern idea of it. Contraception perverts sex and leads to the "contraceptive mentality" that sex / love / babies are all separate (though sometimes related) things. We must fight this mentality and free contraception for all.
