First of all, I don’t necessarily support this and even if I did, I would make sure to do it within the bounds of church rules (no abortions or sterilizations or birth control) and simply tell a certain person that maybe celibacy is what God is calling them to.
Is this wrong though? Would it be wrong for a priest to tell someone with bipolar disorder that they shouldn’t have kids because they might be a bad parent and their kids might suffer? I ask this because I myself am from a family that has issues with anxiety and depression and I wonder if maybe people with these disorders just shouldn’t have kids. I know the bible says the whole thing about being fruitful, but is it worth being fruitful if the child is going to struggle with an illness that could be a burden. Like I said i’m not advocating abortion or contraception or sterilization.
