Opposition to birth control, sterilization not biblical based. eunuch - a man who has been castrated and is incapable of reproduction; Christians oppose this argument and state that the Bible's use of the word "eunuch" refers strictly to men incapable of sexual intercourse or reproduction, through either birth defect or castration. King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.) For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it. Genesis 38:9-10 ESV / But Onan knew that the offspring would not be his. So whenever he went in to his brother's wife he would waste the semen on the ground, so as not to give offspring to his brother. And what he did was wicked in the sight of the Lord, and he put him to death also. (put to death for rebellion and not birth control) There is no religions reason to oppose birth control or sterilization and the catholic church should now shove their non-biblical beliefs down the throats of women. Church or state dont have the right to tell my insurance company what medical care I can or cannot have. It a violation of my civil rights and privacy. I pay my premiums and co-payment. Catholic church have no right to tell me when or if I can have a child. What if for medical reason a women is advised not to get pregnant? Many catholic universities already cover prescription contraceptives. Opposition to birth control and sterilization is not biblical base. Many catholic beliefs are not biblical based but is based on paganism. Catholic doctrine contradicts the Bible!!!
