I would appreciate some help in answering a question from an athiest.
The question posed to me is as follows:
Another question though. I come from an extremely diehard Irish Catholic family. I also come from a family of very fertile women, meaning that I’ve got a regular army of cousins! http://www.religiousforums.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif Anyhow, one of my 2nd cousins had about 10 kids, and the doctor told her that she probably wouldn’t be able to handle another one. After having practiced rhythm her entire life, she went on birth control pills. What does the Catholic Church say about something like this? If she had gotten pregnant again, she ran the risk of severe complications and death…in this case, does the church accept birth control pills?
Any help you can offer to answer this question correctly would be great.
Thanks and God Bless you,
