Regarding the recent debate on birth control pills and their morality, if a Roman Catholic woman can afford to buy the pills and then uses them, is she a sinner?
No one seems to address this conundrum. Given their ability to purchase the pill, how do Christian women who use birth control against the rules of their religion rationalize that decision?
One way is a perpetual confession of one's sins, which suggests hypocrisy.
Another is to stand up and challenge one's religion. Make a prayerful decision that the actions one is taking do not offend God, then forget about sin and start living.
