My apologies if this topic has been covered in a previous question. I searched around and couldn’t find it.
If someone had a severe chronic illness that will put both her life and her potential baby’s life in danger should she find herself pregnant–if multiple doctors have advised her never to get pregnant due to illness–is it a sin for a married woman and her husband to avoid pregnancy completely through nfp? Or through contraception?
Sidenote: I’m not talking about abortion at any stage after implantation. I’m asking about the act of avoiding conception, given the reason above.
The Church’s thoughts on this matter would be great. Thanks!
