Conjugal union physiologically is a reproductive act. Therefore, when contraception is used, it frustrates the physiological purpose of the act. It is similar to eating food, while putting a barrier in the stomach so that the nutritive value of the food is eliminated. Those who use it, therefore, abuse their bodies. Furthermore, by going against the natural physiology, they are going against the creator of the physiology. Openness to procreation is love because it involves giving of one self. Therefore, contraception removes love from conjugal act; making it an act of pure pleasure and participants of it objects to derive pleasure from. It is, therefore, harmful to the love relationship between husband and wife. It is therefore no surprise that after the popularization of contraception divorce took a steep rise. In addition since the aim of contraception is to prevent another human being from being formed, it is an anti-human act. It, therefore, degrades the respect we have for human life. This has resulted in increase in incidence of abortion, child abuse and infanticide. It is, therefore, no surprise that in the scriptures a contraceptive act was considered deadly in the eyes of God (Gen.38: 8-10).
