    When the husband or the wife, uses any kind of birth control,
    they are prohibiting conception and in turn aborting
    and prohibiting human life.

    If you do not believe this is true,
    please give your reason or reasons why?

    If you prevent conception you are not aborting a life.

    Well, actually birth control items such as IUD's and the morning after pill can be considered the same and is in fact aborting life. Do you believe that life starts at conception? This means that a womans egg is already fertilized and cells have already started splitting, then methods that cause her body to reject or dispose of that (now living) organizm can be considered to be abortion. Now, lets see if methods that prevent the sperm from meeting the egg fit can also be considered abortion as the person presenting the OP says. Good discussion!

    If there is no conception there is no life to abort.

    IF the couple together mutually agree to have and use birth control, no sin, but if the Lord still allows for the new life still, then to abort the baby would be a sin!

    So you are saying if a husband and wife refrain from relationship - then they are sinning as that too would be preventing abortion.

    Taking that a step further - a person not getting married and remaining a virgin.......

    So, Yeshua 1, it is up to the couple to play God. THEY decide. Suppose that a husband and wife say to God, "We've decided how many children we will have, when we will have them, and when we will stop having children, and you have no say in the matter." How do you think God reacts to these words? Isn't God offended when these people attempt to keep Him from having any influence over the procreation of children? All children are God's children.

    What I'm saying (not sure about the creator of the OP) is if a couple uses contraception, they are, by their actions, saying to God that they are unwilling to conceive a child, even if it be God's will. Contraception is a sin because the couple has decided to play God.

    Just wondering, how do people on this board believe that most abortions occur? I know the vast majority of evangelicals are pro-life, I once was one of you. The idea of contraception is to prevent conception from occurring. However, as I mentioned above, certain methods of contraception also have the ability to prevent the implantation of a fertilized egg, or to kill the fertilized egg shortly after implantation, thereby causing the death of a human being very early in life. This type of abortion occurs before the woman even realizes she has conceived. Because the use of these types of contraception is so wide-spread, it is likely that most abortions occur in this way.

    But you cannot say all contraception is abortion. Refusing to pro-create or attempting to control the timing of pro-creation is not called abortion. They are wo different issues or topics.

    No, I'm waiting for the creator of the OP to present his/her case. I will say contraception is sin though.

    The rhythm method would also be prohibiting life--probably not abortion.

    We have something skewed about: "be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth"--a Divine Directive which has not been recinded.

    Family planning: a curious phenomenon.

    What about tubal ligations, vasectomies and such?

    There is a lot of scripture in which God deals with mankind before birth.

    The Will of God will be done--whether we participate or not.

    Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

    If you on purpose, prevented the bees from pollinating the fruit trees, have you aborted their fruit they would have produced? Yes or no?

    I know that it is not acceptable to God for anyone of their own
    doing...to bring about the prevention of the womb
    from bearing the fruit, of a husband and wife union?
    If you do not believe what I know is true then tell me why?

    If that is so, then so is not having relations when the wife is ovulating.

    But I don't see any support for your assertion.

    Then you will be knowingly trying to
    prevent your wife and you from being fruitful.
