Shouldn’t a couple have the right to determine how many children they have?
By Father Cal Christiansen
Q: I attended a mission recently where the missionary priest said that anyone who practices artificial birth control is committing a mortal sin. I don’t agree with the church on this issue and I think that contraception should be allowable, especially under certain circumstances. It seems to me that most young Catholic couples use birth control; are they all in a state of mortal sin like this priest said? Please help me understand this difficult teaching of our church.
