The at the moment of, or after sexual

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. The text was issued at a
Vatican press conference on 29 July. 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.'(w2.vatican.va).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.
