Abiding, I would agree...
I tend to not favor birth control for healthy young married couples... For the simple reason that the availability of birth control has turned children into a choice, like a purchase, rather than a precious gift from God. Children are no longer valued as highly as they used to be, overall. I think this is partially due to the agenda pushed by Planned Parenthood, which is very pro-birth-control. I really wonder if God is pleased with how we so easily choose not to give Him free reign in blessing us with children.
Perhaps I am speaking out of a personal pain. I wanted children so badly. My husband said not right away... just because the popular christian books said that was wisest. So, this thing of birth control intruded into my life, robbing me of that which I longed for so much. And then when I lost my first pregnancy to miscarriage, my husband breathed a sigh of relief, because it hadn't happened according to his time schedule.
Of course, there is the other side of the coin. As a woman's health declines, it is definitely wise to avoid pregnancy, not only for her sake, but also for the sake of the potential child. Since I am diabetic, I would now feel a ligation at this stage of life would be wise indeed.
