Contraception


#1

If I have a serious genetic illness that will be passed down to my kids, is it ok to use contraception with my future wife?

Contraception is never OK. For serious reasons, Natural Family Planning may be used to delay having children, even indefinately. But I feel compelled to ask you if you think your own life was a mistake? I hope you say, “No”.Every life has value, and no one is conceived without God’s permission.
While this is a serious issue, it is not too big for God. When considering marriage, ask your future spouse if she is glad you were born. Obviously her answer would be a resounding, “Yes!”
