I have a question and am, frankly, a little embarrassed to ask…but here goes.
I’ve read Humanae Vitae, understand its themes and principles and believe them true. I’ve studied the Theology of the Body, both in private and at a Christopher West seminar and I’ve listened to many audio teachings on the subject.
I do have one nuance that I haven’t been able to understand logically. Here it is…NFP targets those times where pregnancy is not possible or, maybe more accurately, where the chance of pregnancy is reduced. Essentially, the deposit is being made to a place where life can not occur. The intention is to avoid pregnancy.
I fail to see a difference between this method of birth control and coitus interrupts where the intention is to avoid pregnancy, the chance of pregnancy is reduced and the deposit is made to a place where life can not occur.
Can someone help me to understand where the difference lies?
