Problem

Birth prevention

Other Names:
Birth control
Prevention of contraception
Nature:

The use of physical or chemical means to prevent sexual intercourse from resulting in the conception of a child.

Claim:

The only certain and acceptable means of birth control is abstinence. The use of artificial birth control means that people arrogate to themselves the divine right to determine which actions will have the power to generate life.

Counter Claim:

By divorcing sexuality from reproduction, the birth control pill has revolutionized human behaviour. For the first time in history it is possible to have sexual relationship without worrying about pregnancy.
