Nurse Jill Stanek writes on contraception.
I am a Protestant who opposes contraception, not only because some of its forms may cause abortions, but also – moreso – because the thinking behind contraception makes it the forerunner to abortion.
I base my thinking on several Biblical concepts. The foremost concept is that God is always described in Scripture as the sole procreative decision-maker. To my knowledge, every incident in Scripture describing pregnancy or barrenness gives God complete credit.
If that premise is true, who has the right to say no to God? Who can say they have a better grip on timing than God?
It seems to me there is a growing awareness among Protestants on this issue. The issue of abortafacients has been largely ignored among people who were otherwise pro-life and MAP is somewhat bringing it up to the foreground. Maybe next we will see a growing acknowledgement about the consequence of the contraceptive mentality in the first place.
