Common arguments for contraception extend well beyond a woman’s decision whether and when to conceive, and access to reliable family planning goes deeper than a woman’s personal wellbeing. It plays a pivotal role in the financial, physical and emotional health of children. Modern concensus is that empowering women with more options to control pregnancies has benefits for everyone.
Arguements for Contraception
- Contraception allows responsible family planning
- Contraception avoids unwanted pregnancies
- Condoms prevent sexually transmitted diseases
- God made people in his own image, wanting them to be in control and make rational decisions (such as when to have children).
- Christians should think of the well-being of existing children and the effect that another pregnancy would have on them.

Monash contraception backlash demontrates a hijacked language
Written by Kathy Clubb A pro-contraception campaign by Monash University has backfired because of misconceptions around women’s “reproductive health” privacy – the same misconceptions that have been pushed by the abortion industry. The campaign involves encouraging pharmacists to educate women about their contraception choices, and in particular, to promote to women the use of […]
Non-Catholic opponents of contraception
Written by Kathy Clubb My recent article on the link between contraception and abortion prompted much debate on social media, indicating that many Christians have strong opinions on the subject.

We can’t end abortion unless we end contraception

The estimated 62 to 78 […]
Cory Bernardi – Family Life International speech
The true cost of our cultural decline Judging from the recent media reports about me, you’ll know that I’m not your typical politician. In fact, it’s been said that I’m: “a person without any intellect”… a “homophobic, Islamophobic, climate-change-denying, free-market Christian fundamentalist” and… “Sarah Palin, without the lipstick.” Some may think that’s true, but in the […]
