In the 1910's and 1920's, the entire social order–religion, law, politics, medicine, and the media–was arrayed against the idea and practice of birth control. This opposition began in 1873 when an overwhelmingly Protestant Congress passed, and a Protestant president signed into law, a bill that became known as the Comstock Law, named after its main proponent, Anthony Comstock. The U.S. Congress classified obscene writing, along with drugs, and devices and articles that prevented conception or caused abortion, under the same net of criminality and forbade their importation or mailing.
This was all birth control, not just the ones Christians now see as abortifacient. We need to return to giving the Lord sovereignty over our wombs, dear women. I have other articles on this subject--just look in the Categories under the heading Birth Control.

Thank you for all of the articles that you write and post up, they are such a blessing. I love to share them with others especially my older married children. This particular post is so close to our hearts. Oh how I wish we had know these things when we were younger!! That children are a blessing from the Lord and that He is in control of all our life. I just wonder how many more "blessings" we would have now if we only had known and had let God have control. I'm very thankful for the 9 children and 10 grandchildren we have so far, but so sad about the ones that could have been a part of our family if we hadn't tried to control the "blessings". I just pray that our children and their spouse's will let the Lord lead them in this area of their lives as in all areas of their lives and not be deceived by Satan and those of this world who would have us to believe that our lives would be so much better if we didn't have children. Satan is the father of lies and this lie, even the church has been duped into believing, so sad. God bless you in your ministry. 😊❤ReplyDelete
QUE TERRIBLE LA PALABRA ABORTO, DIOS MIO, ¿HASTA CUANDO MATARAN INOCENTES? ¿HASTA CUANDO TENDRA QUE PAGAR CON LA VIDA UN PEQUEÑO QUE NO PIDE VENIR A ESTE MUNDO CRUEL? OH JESUS VEN PRONTO, VEN PRONTO, LLEVANOS A TU MANSION CELESTIAL. HAY TANTO DOLOR, LLANTO, TRISTEZA...... ME DUELE EN EL ALMA TODO ESTO, NIÑOS SUFRIENDO, NIÑOS HUERFANOS, ABANDONADOS, PEQUEÑOS QUE HAN NACIDO CON DISCAPACIDAD Y NO SON AMADOS POR SUS PADRES. HE VISTO NIÑOS LLORANDO DE DOLOR, MURIENDO POR ABANDONO. PERDONEME HERMANA, PERO ESTE ES UN TEMA QUE ME HACE ESTREMECER HASTA LOS HUESOS. BENDICIONES.ReplyDelete
