SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Protestants should be opposed to birth-control

There should be no disagreement about life beginning when sperm penetrates the ovum. Many abortifacients are mislabeled "contraceptives." Many kinds of "birth control" make the womb hostile to implantation. The newly developed baby cannot attach itself to the womb and dies of malnutrition. This is early chemical abortion.

God commands: "Thou shall not murder;" "Thou shall not commit adultery."

The Apostle Paul warns us to "Flee fornication." He writes, "Fornication is sinning against your own body."

"My body, my choice," you say? Not so. Sin has consequences. ObamaCare requires everyone to pay for your poor choices.

Fornication, like adultery, is a great evil. The fornicating couple are defiling themselves before their future mates. Sex is holy. God intended it for one man for one woman in a lifelong covenant of marriage. The consequences of sexual sins lead to unintended pregnancies, sexually transmitted diseases, and abortion. Sterility is often the result of "better contraceptives." Reproductive organs do not turn on and off like a light switch. It is much easier to turn them off than turn them on.

Fertile women are healthy women, contraceptives make them unhealthy.

The average American woman has 2.1 children. Children are a blessing from the Lord. Divorce skyrocketed after the pill was introduced in the 1960s. By 1992, divorce had increased 345 percent.

If it is true that 98 percent of Catholic women use contraceptives, it's because government schools have more influence over them than their church.

It violates my conscious when I indirectly pay for contraceptives. I do not want the price of my health insurance to go up because of the poor choices of others. I do not want to pay for the murders of unborn babies.
