Why we oppose use of condom for family planning - Catholic Church

Published by Linda Ikeji on Tue, 18 Jun 2013


Culled from PunchThe Catholic church says it opposes artificial family planning techniques, because it encourages bastardisation of sexual activities by young people and 'impedes normal procreation.'The Secretary-General of the Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria, Rev. Fr. Ralph Madu, made this clarification in a response to an enquiry by The Punch on Sunday.He said, 'The Catholic Church believes that modern means, including the use of condoms is morally bad because it impedes normal procreation. You can meet with your wife when you do not want children and those periods when the woman is not fertile instead of having to destroy the sperm and all other forms of artificial prevention.'They are very artificial means and they do not really give the moral lesson that borders around the use of the sexual organs.'The one that gives you the opportunity to exercise your sexual urge without the consequences is the natural method and the church says you should go for the natural means.'According to him, the excuse that it reduces the spread of HIV/AIDS remains invalid and untenable, adding HIV/AIDS is a disease that is prevalent among young people.Madu added, 'When you are talking about condom among young people, you are also talking about promiscuity. People have adduced arguments in case of people with HIV/AIDS and especially couples who do not want children. The use of condom and other modern means are being bastardised among young young people because they will resort to the use of condom so that they can have sex freely without impregnating the woman or getting pregnant.'Those are various artificial means and the church is strongly against them. Instead, the church endorsed the natural method of copulation.
