Moral Issues

You may be surprised to learn that, in our law, although the fetus is currently without the right to life, it does have some rights. For instance, under civil law, the unborn child has the right to inherit part of his father’s estate should his father die before he is born, and he has the right to sue his mother, or a doctor, for injuiries sustained while in the womb.

The way to plan the family is Natural Family Planning, not contraception. In destroying the power of giving life, through contraception, a husband or wife is doing something to self.
