An article by Catholic writer F. K. Bartels. Excerpts:
"It is clear that the use of contraceptives, which is an 'intrinsically evil' act, has led to many other evils. ...
[T]here is an inseparable connection between our actions and God, for we are accountable before God for what we do, for how we live. Too, there is an inseparable connection between the marital act and procreation:
'That teaching, often set forth by the magisterium, is founded upon the inseparable connection, willed by God and unable to be broken by man on his own initiative, between the two meanings of the conjugal act: the unitive meaning and the procreative meaning.'"
