[quote=goldenautumnday]This is a good argument. Numbers two and three are
not always present. For example, in an older couple
that have no physical chance of conceiving.
Granted, not all couples are physically able to conceive, but the contraceptive mentality may still there. I think the real core of the problem is the selfishness of premarital sex.
I am one who regrets not saving myself for my wife. I know my wife feels the same way. We both were sexually active when we met, and we co-habitated for about a 1 1/2 years prior to getting married. Because of our selfish experiences, we were obviously a contracepting couple even after we were married.
Long story short, because of our selfishness, our sex life was starting to become unfullfilling. Our propensity to ‘experiment’ was becoming pretty frequent, and I, personally, was becoming addicted to Pornography. It was only through the grace of our Lord, that I reverted to my Catholic upbringing, my wife converted and we began to practice NFP. It’s amazing what that did for us.
As you can see, the slope does not necessarily lead to abortion. Depravity and perverse sexual appetites are fueled by the selfishness that is found in pre marital sex. A simple view of the culture around us and the way it constantly bombards and titlates sexual images is aperfect example
