The
issue is complex, and arguments come from many different perspectives with
different objectives. One perspective on the issue is that using contraception
is unnatural and doesn’t work for everyone, most importantly that it goes
against the wishes of god. In a blog on desiring god, it is stated that- ‘Genesis
1- says to fill the earth and be a blessing’. These teachings have shaped
people’s way of living for thousands of years. So, in 1960 when the first birth
control pill was administrated by the US Food and Drug Administration, it was a
controversial invention, the question is, why is it still an issue? The Roman
catholic religion has never been accepting off issues regarding birth control. Humanae vitae is an encyclical written by Pope
Paul VI and dated 25 July 1968(4). In the text it states the catholic stance on
birth control and abortion. It declares: ‘We are obliged once more to declare
that the direct interruption of the generative process already begun and, above
all, all direct abortion, even for therapeutic reasons, are to be absolutely
excluded as lawful means of regulating the number of children. Equally to be
condemned, as the magisterium of the Church has affirmed on many occasions, is
direct sterilization, whether of the man or of the woman, whether permanent or
temporary. Similarly excluded is any action which either before, at the moment
of, or after sexual intercourse, is specifically intended to prevent
procreation—whether as an end or as a means..The church argued that artificial
birth control devalued sex purpose and diminished responsibility.  John Paul II’s 1995 Evangelium Vitae ruled
against abortion and contraception as slayers of potential children whom God
intended to create. In recent years the Vatican has shifted its opinion by not
only arguing that artificial controls are morally wrong but also that condoms
are ineffective in preventing infection
