While researching a post I am working on, I came across this article on the Consequences of the Contraceptive Mentality by K.D Whitehead. He makes some very good points about what has happened to societal morality as result of separating the possibility of procreation from sex.
Here are some excerpts…
- The Holy Father spoke of some of the consequences of the contraceptive mentality in the encyclical when he warned that “upright men… [should] reflect upon the consequences of artificial birth control. Let them consider, first of all, how wide and easy a road would thus be opened up towards conjugal infidelity and the general lowering of morality… men—especially the young, who are so vulnerable on this point—have need of encouragement to be faithful to the moral law, so that they must not be offered some easy means of eluding its observance. It is also to be feared that man, growing used to the employment of anti-conceptive practices, may finally lose respect for the woman… may come to the point of considering her as a mere instrument of selfish enjoyment…”
- It is not necessary to prove that there is a statistically verifiable absolute increase in sexual misdeeds today. The revolution is real enough. It is the case, for example, that even with today’s wonder drugs venereal disease has nevertheless reached epidemic proportions. According to the chief of the VD Branch of the U.S. Federal Center for Disease Control, “Gonorrhoea in the United States is out of control” (15). An article in the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded a few years back that venereal disease could no longer be medically treated out of existence “unless a new element is introduced such as immunization or a change in the prevailing life styles of the population segments most affected” (Emphasis added) (16). In other words, what is chiefly needed, as medicine throws up its hands, is a little more “encouragement to be faithful to the moral law”, in the words of the Holy Father.
- …companionate marriage, trial marriage, homosexual marriage, group marriage, or, most especially, with languid indifference to the question of whether any “marriage” at all needs to be connected with sexual “expression” or “fulfillment”
- Just as the concept of “planned parenthood” really means planned non-parenthood, so the aim and result of encouraging sex just for fun and games can only be the destruction of any sound idea of family life, for human sexuality is exempted from the necessity of the self-denial necessary, for example, in any marriage. Sexuality is thus divorced not only from possible procreation but indeed, logically, from marriage itself.
- Actually, the American experience of seeing the acceptance of contraception lead to the acceptance of abortion was not the first time that the integral and consistent anti-life logic we have been examining here has worked itself out in human history. Consider this statement of St. Epiphanius, who was Bishop of Salamis, and who lived between 315 and 403 A.D. Writing of the contraceptive practices of the pagan society of his day, St. Epiphanius wrote against the idea that conjugal relations might be indulged in without any reference to their natural purpose: “There are those”, he wrote, “who when they have intercourse deliberately prevent having children… Moreover if a man should by mistake deposit some of his emitted seed and his wife becomes pregnant, listen to what further crime they descend. They remove the unformed fetus from the womb anytime they please and actually grind the aborted child (infantem) with mortar and pestle. Then to avoid nausea they use pepper and other spices or ointments” (Emphasis added) (38).
- Thus the testimony of the ancient world too confirms our own experience: once man arrogates to himself the right to limit or control the consequences of sex without regard to the moral law or the natural use of sex—once, in other words, the contraceptive mentality prevails—moving on to what St. Epiphanius calls “the further crime” of abortion becomes both logical and perhaps inevitable.
One of the most under-reported religious stories of the past decade has been the movement of Lutherans across the Tiber.
What first began with prominent Lutherans, such as Richard John Neuhaus (1990) and Robert Wilken (1994), coming into the Catholic Church, has become more of a landslide that could culminate in a larger body of Lutherans coming into the collectively.
In 2000, former Canadian Lutheran Bishop Joseph Jacobson came into the Church.
“No other Church really can duplicate what Jesus gave,” Jacobson told the Western Catholic Reporter in 2006.
In 2003, Leonard Klein, a prominent Lutheran and the former editor of Lutheran Forum and Forum Letter came into the Church. Today, both Jacobson and Klein are Catholic priests.
“Judah said to Onan, ‘Go in to your brother’s wife, and perform the duty of a brother-in-law to her, and raise up offspring for your brother.’ But Onan knew that the offspring would not be his; so when he went in to his brother’s wife he spilled the semen on the ground, lest he should give offspring to his brother. And what he did was displeasing in the sight of the Lord, and he slew him also” (Gen. 38:8–10)…
It is a little known fact that until 1930, every Christian denomination condemned artificial contraception. Not just the Catholic Church. All of them. No exceptions. Even the Protestant Reformers condemned the practice –
* “[T]he exceedingly foul deed of Onan, the basest of wretches . . . is a most disgraceful sin. It is far more atrocious than incest and adultery (emphasis mine). We call it unchastity, yes, a sodomitic sin. For Onan goes in to her; that is, he lies with her and copulates, and when it comes to the point of insemination, spills the semen, lest the woman conceive . Surely at such a time the order of nature established by God in procreation should be followed (emphasis mine). Accordingly, it was a most disgraceful crime. . . . Consequently, he deserved to be killed by God. He committed an evil deed. Therefore, God punished him.”
Luther doesn’t just equate Onan’s action with incest or adultery, he elevates it to an even higher evil than those two atrocities! He calls it ‘a most disgraceful sin’. Why? his words: ‘…lest the woman conceive.’ And ‘Surely at such a time the order of nature established by God in procreation should be followed.’
* “The voluntary spilling of semen outside of intercourse between man and woman is a monstrous thing. Deliberately to withdraw from coitus in order that semen may fall on the ground is doubly monstrous. For this is to extinguish the hope of the race and to kill (emphasis mine) before he is born the hoped-for offspring.”
Why does Calvin say that it’s wrong? Not because ‘semen may fall on the ground…’. He says it’s wrong because ‘this is to extinguish the hope of the race and to kill before he is born the hoped-for offspring.’ In other words, it’s wrong because it prevents the birth of a child. In fact, his choice of words sounds amazingly like the description of something else – Abortion… And, as we’ll see later, legalized abortion is one of the results of the change in teaching on artificial contraception that began in 1930…
* “Those sins that dishonor the body are very displeasing to God, and the evidence of vile affections. Observe, the thing which he [Onan] did displeased the Lord—and it is to be feared; thousands, especially of single persons, by this very thing, still displease the Lord, and destroy their own souls (emphasis mine). “
Wesley takes it as far as saying that those who follow in the footsteps of Onan ‘destroy their own souls.’ By doing what? by acting to prevent conception during the Marriage act.
* (You can find these passages, and many others by historic Protestant figures who recognize the evils of contraception, quoted in Charles D. Provan, The Bible and Birth Control.)
These reformers maintained the same belief and teaching that had been the historic Christian position since the very beginning of Christianity. And that was a continuation of Jewish teaching dating back to the time of Onan, way back in the old testament.
In short, this teaching on contraception has been around since God first made himself known to us.
So what happened to cause everybody to change their minds about contraception? And what are the consequences of that change?
As mentioned above, the condemnation of artificial contraception was the universal position of all Christian denominations until 1930. It was at that time that the Anglican Church, during it’s Lambeth Conference, acquiesced to social pressure and allowed artificial contraception in certain circumstances. Shortly thereafter, the Anglicans completely gave into continued social pressure and removed all objection to contraception and allowed it for any reason that a couple could come up with.
It was a true ‘Give them an inch and they’ll take a mile’ moment in Christian history. Sadly, that mile has become a light year today…
And from there, the slippery slope effect came into play and all other Protestant denominations soon followed suit.
In short order, denominations everywhere abandoned thousands of years of Divine Revelation in favor of the demands of a few thousand or million selfish individuals who wanted the the fun of sex without taking on the responsibility of children.
This is truly a new teaching within the boundaries of Christianity. And when this happened, a whole new world opened up – and it’s not very pretty…
Many a Christian evangelist will preach against ‘man-made traditions’ and doctrines, all the while promoting and encouraging what truly is the single most destructive man-made doctrine in the entirety Judeo/Christian history.
How destructive? Well, when Christian society adopted a contraceptive mindset – a mindset that removes the possibility of conception from the sex act, thereby making children an unnecessary hinderance to having a good time, we established a mentality that made it increasingly more acceptable to ‘enjoy’ sex lives outside the norms of society, Christian or otherwise.
The natural result of sexual relations is a child, and since you take the requirement for a baby out of sex, there is no reason to have a normal sexual relationship – they all become normal…
And here’s a short list of what’s become the norm, or is becoming the norm, since we started thinking this way…
- Rampant Adultery
- Ubiquitous pornography
- Mercy killing/Euthanasia
- High divorce rates
- Childhood sex
- Unchecked unwed motherhood
- Gay marriage
- Epidemic levels of sexually transmitted diseases
And that’s just a jumping off point – How many other things can you think of that could be added to this list? How many things can you think of that can be attributed to the the things on the list – subsets, if you will?
For the sake of brevity, I’ll stick with Abortion to start with and address the other things on the list in future articles.
- Abortion – If you want to end abortion, end the contraceptive mentality. Think about it – they both have the same end in mind – The pleasure of sex and the prevention of the birth of a child. They are two siblings in the same family, sharing the same goal and, often, the same methodology for achieving that goal – even if the practitioners don’t realize it.
Even Planned Parenthood and the media tangentially connect contraception and abortion, as evidenced in this piece from Lawrence O’Donnell:
In the video, a ‘friend’ of O’Donnell allegedly sends him an email decrying the movement to defund Planned Parenthood. One of the main reasons she gives for her request is that she won’t be able to afford birth control because she has just lost her job (and insurance). She also mentions her ‘unfortunate and devastating abortion’ in her email.
(Apparently, she was forced to have an abortion because she either didn’t have access to birth control, or it failed. Neither O’Donnell nor the email says. It is also not revealed if the woman is married.)
This is a perfect example of how the Contraceptive mentality has created what we have today in the areas listed above.
First, assuming that the woman is single, I have some observations…
Prior to the general acceptance of contraception as a way to avoid pregnancy, conception was universally recognized as a possibility when engaging in sexual intercourse. Additionally, society demanded that the bearing and raising of children take place within the confines of a committed marital relationship (marriage). With that understanding, sex was also generally expected to take place within the institute of marriage, and those (especially women) who participated in it outside of the marriage bond were looked on with much derision.
Derision does not begin to cover the perception of any woman who became pregnant outside of the marital relationship. Women who found themselves in this situation were strongly stigmatized, and that stigma stayed with them for the rest of their lives, or until they moved somewhere where they were not known.
With these societal norms in place, men and women may have wanted to jump into the sack together, but they had to weigh the possibility of pregnancy and the resulting circumstances and responsibilities that go along with it against the pleasure of engaging in the act. They had to decide whether sex was worth the risk of the consequences of creating a new child.
Those who took the risk and bet wrong paid a heavy price. And, if they were married to other people, those families paid an even greater price. Those families would have suffered even more humiliation, pain, loss of trust, possibly divorce and who knows what else.
Fear of the consequences of elicit sexual intercourse kept much of the religious, and probably non-religious, population in check. People were forced to exercise self-discipline and take responsibility for the way they lived their lives. They had to resist temptation, even if they really didn’t want to. And, when you compare society back then with the train wreck we have today, they actually did a fairly good job of it.
Now, what would happen if all of a sudden the ‘danger’ of getting pregnant while having sex appeared to go away?
Let’s see… What would that mean?
By removing the possibility of creating a new life from the sex act, you removed the the primary natural function of sex from the act itself – that of procreation. God didn’t give us the gift of children so we would be more likely to feel good during sex, he made sex attractive to us so we would procreate! Face it – if sex was painful, would we do it? And if we didn’t do it, there wouldn’t be any of us around to complain about it.
And, having removed conception from the sex act, you have changed the reason for sex from procreation to self expression or self fulfillment. This is NOT what God intended.
Remember: God did NOT say “Go out and have fun expressing and fulfilling yourselves and, if you think of it, make me 2.3 kids, but make sure you don’t mess up this nice planet with too many of the little ankle-biters.” He told us to “Be fruitful and multiply” and “Subdue the Earth”
Now that you have taken the possibility of pregnancy out of the equation, you have also done away with the fear of the consequences of an unwanted pregnancy. And when you threw out the baby, you started down the road toward the breakdown of self-discipline and the destruction of personal responsibility.
And you have opened the door to what, to millions of people, is ‘complete sexual freedom’. It destroys all self discipline. It obliterates any sense of personal responsibility for the consequences of our actions. It gives us the illusion of being the masters of our bodies and decision makers for God.
And this eventually led to the sexual free-for-all we have going on all around us today.
And, in millions of us, it has made us impervious to the destruction of little blobs of tissue growing inside millions of pregnant mothers around the world.
Back to the woman who’s email O’Donnell is reading in the video…
If she’s not married, she shouldn’t be having sex. BUT she is the ‘victim’ of the contraceptive mentality – that mentality says that “you are a sexually free woman, and you can do whatever you want. And if you slip up and get pregnant, you can just get rid of it because you are free to express yourself in any way that you want and you shouldn’t have to worry about the consequences of your actions. You don’t have to be responsible. In fact, you’re being responsible by aborting it. You should be able to have sex and not be punished with a baby because of it.”
Again, the contraceptive mentality discounts any self-discipline and responsibility on the part of the couple, especially the woman.
At this point you’re probably asking, “What are you talking about? Contraception is NOT the same as abortion!”
Well, artificial contraception often fails, and one big reason that there are not more unwed mothers is that when ‘protection’ fails, the baby is jettisoned (aborted).
- Induced abortions usually result from unintended pregnancies, which often occur despite the use of contraception (CDC).
- 54% of women having abortions used a contraceptive method during the month they became pregnant. Among those women, 76% of pill users and 49% of condom users reported using the methods inconsistently, while 13% of pill users and 14% of condom users reported correct use (AGI).
- 8% of women having abortions have never used a method of birth control (AGI).
- 9 in 10 women at risk of unintended pregnancy are using a contraceptive method (AGI).
- Statistics found at Abort73.com
- AGI: The Alan Guttmacher Institute (Research arm of Planned Parenthood)
- CDC: Centers for Disease Control
Nowadays we hear about the use of abortion as a means of contraception as if it was a new idea when, in fact, it has been used that way for thousands of years.
As K.D. Whitehead writes:
Yet there is one more consequence of the contraceptive mentality in our society today which must now be treated —abortion. The legalization of abortion in the United States, by the Supreme Court’s decision of January 22, 1973, has quite rightly evoked a wave of protest everywhere—and not only among Catholics. Abortion—the killing of a living though unborn child—may yet serve to turn our society back from the road down which we have been traveling. People do stop and ask: how is it that we are now permitting the legalized killing of around a million of our children each year? How is it that in supposedly civilized and Christian America we have killed more since the Supreme Court abortion decision of 1973 than in all the wars of American history?Nevertheless, even among those most horrified by legalized killing, there has been a great reluctance to accept the plain fact that we have social acceptance of legalized abortion today because we had social acceptance of contraception first.
I am acquainted, I think, with all of the arguments that will be levelled at this statement. After all, it is argued, abortion is not the same thing as contraception. Abortion is killing; killing is wrong. Contraception, however, is something else; it merely prevents conception; it doesn’t kill a child already alive and growing. So it is urged.
Most people see the evil of abortion and they see that its acceptance is already opening the way towards acceptance of positive euthanasia, or “mercy killing”, of the sick, aged, and “unfit”. Much fewer people see how the evil of contraception and its new ethic of untrammelled sex apart from possible procreation have in fact led to legalized abortion. For even if contraception as such is not as bad as murder, it is an evil; and Our Lord. himself teaches that “the bad tree bears evil fruit”: (Mt 7:17). It is in this sense that abortion—the idea that we may even go so far as to kill in order to make effective the “control” man has assumed over his own, “reproduction”—is one of the evil fruits of the contraceptive mentality.
How many of us were worrying about abortion in 1968 when Paul VI issuedHumanae Vitae? Only four or five States had tentatively modified their abortion statutes at that time (37). Or in 1930? The deluge has come in the past several years. But the encyclicalHumanae Vitae, like the earlier encyclical of Pope Pius XI, was already on the record as a truly prophetic witness of the plague of abortions that has since been visited upon the human race.
Actually, the American experience of seeing the acceptance of contraception lead to the acceptance of abortion was not the first time that the integral and consistent anti-life logic we have been examining here has worked itself out in human history. Consider this statement of St. Epiphanius, who was Bishop of Salamis, and who lived between 315 and 403 A.D. Writing of the contraceptive practices of the pagan society of his day, St. Epiphanius wrote against the idea that conjugal relations might be indulged in without any reference to their natural purpose: “There are those”, he wrote, “who when they have intercourse deliberately prevent having children… Moreover if a man should by mistake deposit some of his emitted seed and his wife becomes pregnant, listen to what further crime they descend. They remove the unformed fetus from the womb anytime they please and actually grind the aborted child (infantem) with mortar and pestle. Then to avoid nausea they use pepper and other spices or ointments” (Emphasis added) (38).
Again, the desired results of both artificial contraception and abortion are the same – the prevention of the birth of a child.
You might argue that, while the expected result of abortion is the prevention of live birth, the expected result of the pill is the avoidance of conception. Well, why would a person (or couple) want to prevent conception? So they don’t have a baby.
Both the practitioner of contraception and the practitioner of abortion have the same expectation: They expect the same outcome from engaging in sex – all fun, no baby. They even use the same reasoning for their respective methods of avoiding the responsibility for their actions…
- I/we can’t have a child right now because
- I/we can’t afford it
- I’m/we’re in school
- I/we have a career
- I/we am not ready to settle down yet
- I/we want to be responsible and protect the Earth
- I/we don’t want to bring a child into such a messed up world
- We just want to be with each other
- I just want to be free to express my sexuality and not have to worry about having a baby
- And the ubiquitous: We have all of the kids we want ** (See note below)
Because of the the natural progression of the contraceptive mentality, many women may not bother with ‘protection’ at all, relying on ‘after the fact’ methods of preventing live birth. That, after all, is what the ‘morning after’ pill is for. And if you miss the ‘morning after’ opportunity, you can always go to RU486 – up to 9 weeks into your pregnancy!
In fact, many forms of contraception act as abortifacients (the IUD, the Patch, the Morning After Pill – which is essentially a very strong version of the common Birth Control Pill, which can also act as an abortifacient – if they don’t catch it on the first go around, they will prevent implantation of the fertilized egg and cause a spontaneous abortion. A woman can abort her baby and never even know she was ever pregnant! How many women have unknowingly aborted their child or children who would never begin to consider intentionally having an abortion under any circumstances?
We hear about the nearly fifty-five million abortions that have been performed in clinics and hospitals since Roe v. Wade became the law of the land. That’s the number 55 followed by six zeros. That’s a lot of lives destroyed at the hands of so called doctors in so called ‘health centers’ around America. That’s an incredibly high number, but where abortion is concerned, the number ‘one’ is too high. You will not find a pro-life person who will dispute that.
But we don’t know how many unknown, spontaneous abortions have taken place through the use of various forms of contraception. It could be a lot fewer than fifty-five million. Or it could be a lot more than fifty-five million.
And when you take the number of intended and non-intended abortions in the United States and add them to the numbers in same categories from every other nation on Earth, what do you come up with? There is no way to tell, is there?
What we can tell is that abortion is the next logical step in the contraceptive mentality. When contraception fails, abort the ‘product of conception’.
Abortion is the contraceptive of last resort.
** (About “We have all the kids we want”, while I plan to address this in a future column, I would like to interject a couple of thoughts to ponder…
When a woman conceives a child, she participates, with God, in the creation of an imortal soul. That child, once conceived, lives forever. And as with everything else that God creates, which is everything, that soul belongs to Him.
Serious Christians consider children a gift from God. But have we ever given thought to the fact that every child is also our gift TO God? And when we purposefully reject God’s desired gift from Him, we also intentionally refuse to give God our gift to Him?
God may have given us all of the children we want. But how many children does God want from us? And who are we to decide for God how many souls He wants from us?
How many of us are competent to make God’s decisions for Him?
21 “But if a wicked person turns away from all the sins they have committed and keeps all my decrees and does what is just and right, that person will surely live; they will not die. 22None of the offenses they have committed will be remembered against them. Because of the righteous things they have done, they will live. 23 Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked? declares the Sovereign LORD. Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?
24 “But if a righteous person turns from their righteousness and commits sin and does the same detestable things the wicked person does, will they live? None of the righteous things that person has done will be remembered. Because of the unfaithfulness they are guilty of and because of the sins they have committed, they will die. (EZEKIEL 18:20-24)

Contraception and the Shepherds
Hello everyone .. and welcome to the Vortex .. where lies and falsehoods are trapped and
exposed .. I’m Michael Voris.
It has become very clear as one surveys the Catholic world that the greatest danger to the
Faith, both spiritually and materially is the contraceptive mentality.
As Pope Paul VI warned in 1968, if contraception becomes the order of the day, then
societies will crumble. The Church’s exhibit #1 – the current state of western culture.
Say no more.
It has descended to such a point of debasement that you wonder if it is even retrievable
any longer without a direct act of Divine intervention. And the contraceptive mentality is
to blame for this.
Sex has become separated from the act of pro-creation. Once that happens, intimacy is
replaced with selfish physical gratification. And that of course leads to shattered
relationships which spread like a poison throughout society, until enough relationships
are shattered that the very society itself is laid waste.
It is in to this chaos that the Church is called to intervene .. to bring the good news of
redemption. But if the leaders of the Church refuse to preach it .. if they hold back .. if
they are tentative in teaching .. then God help us all.
What is needed today is an entire all out attack on the culture of contraception .. which is
anti-life, anti-family and therefore ultimately anti-human. The US Bishops here could
take a cue the bishops in the Philippines who just a little over a month ago produced a
splendid pastoral letter on the evil of contraception and birth control as it relates to law
that anti-life forces are trying desperately to get passed in that heavily Catholic country.
Such bold and definitive clarity. Uncompromising. Unabashed. A clarion call that says it
like it is .. calling this mind set and attempts to codify it “evil” .. which of course it is.
It’s a short letter that was signed onto UNANIMOUSLY by the Filipino bishops.
Real Catholic TV was invited to the Philippines to help engage in that battle on the part
of the bishops and faithful laity. While we were there .. it was my deepest pleasure to
give a number of talks before audiences ranging from 50 to 2000.
While the cause of the presentations was the political – moral crisis revolving around the
proposed birth control bill .. this one topic paved the way for discussion and talks on a
much larger range of issues.
During our time there .. we spoke on an expanse of issues like the challenge of being
Catholic today .. the cause of the current crisis in the Church .. what faithful Catholics
can do about it .. how contemporary worldly spirituality like New Age is a serious danger
1to the faith .. how so many varying and contradictory Protestant misinterpretations of
Sacred Scripture have dramatically weakened Christianity in general and Catholicism in
general .. the intense spiritual battle that Catholics must fight every day .. that Catholics
must realize that behind all of this flood of evil is our arch enemy himself .. Satan,
motivated by his fantastic hatred of humanity and the natural world .. and how young
people in particular must stand like a fortress against the sexualized culture and realize
the tsunami of evil threatening to swamp them.
In short .. we went to bring a stark message of reality .. an unvarnished look at the horrors
washing over humanity today and a counter message of hope and strength that faithful
Catholics .. laity and clergy together have it in our power to beat back and conquer these
After all .. The Catholic Church has been burying her enemies for centuries.
Our camera crew came with us on our trip to the Philippines and videotaped all of the
talks .. and even captured footage of our meetings with some of the splendid Filipino
Our editors back here at our real Catholic TV studios have been busily compiling and
editing all of these talks into a single collection .. Real Catholic TV in The Philippines.
We’ve already received a number of inquiries from around the world thru emails and
facebook if the talks would be available and we’re happy to say the answer is yes. We
are just in the final stages of producing the DVD masters so copies can be made available
to anyone who would like to order.
If you’d like more information .. please click on the link right over here to find out
details. If you are watching on You Tube .. please go to rctv.com and click on today’s
Vortex entitled Contraception and the Shepherds and then click on the link from there.
As we said .. our recent excursion to the Philippines was about much more than just the
local issue of the contraception law trying to be passed there. That served as a
springboard to talk about many many other issues that Catholics must become aware of ..
both inside and outside the Church. We are happy to offer this series of talks in one DVD
Being Catholic is much more than just bearing the name. The faithful Catholic is
involved .. plugged in .. sees the great needs of the world today and more than resolved to
do something about it .. but actually DOES DO something .. he or she commits
themselves .. to the point of whatever sacrifice Our Blessed Lord requires of them .. to
help save the world.
This is our calling .. our duty .. our privilege!
GOD Bless you. I’m Michael Voris.
