Question:

Hi my name is Alaijha. In health class we are working on projects due March 3rd and the topic I chose is the beliefs about birth control between Catholics and Judaism. I just have a few questions if you wouldn’t mind answering them.

1. What do you teach about birth control?

2. If a couple came to you for advice about birth control, what would you say? Would it make a difference if they were married? Why?

3. Has the teaching of this religion always been the same, regarding birth control or has it changed over time?

Answer:

  1. Judaism frowns upon birth control, as the first commandment given to Adam was to procreate. G-d wants the world populated and birth control is the opposite of that.
  2. When a couple comes for advise on birth control it is dealt with on a very individual basis, which is beyond the scope of what we can discuss at this time. Judaism doesn’t allow sex before the two people are married to each other.
  3. As far as I know, these laws haven’t changed with time.
