The Birth Control Movement
The birth control movement as we know it today was championed by Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, and the creator of the birth control pill. Ms. Sanger believed in eugenics and promoted outright sexual promiscuity.
The following are quotes by Margaret Sanger:
The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.
Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.
We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.
A woman’s duty: To look the whole world in the face with a go-to-hell look in the eyes… to speak and act in defiance of convention.
Women of the working class, especially wage workers, should not have more than two children at most. The average working man can support no more and the average working woman can take care of no more in decent fashion.

Birth control pills are considered a Group 1 carcinogen by the World Health Organization, and is in the same category as cigarettes.
Birth Control as an Abortifacient
The combination pill contains both artificial estrogen and progesterone, while the mini pill contains only progesterone. Artificial estrogen suppresses ovulation most of the time, while progesterone doesn’t suppress ovulation at all! The progesterone causes the lining of the uterus to become thin and shriveled so when a newly conceived baby tries to implant, it cannot. It eventually starves to death and dies.
IUDs prevent newly conceived babies from implanting as well, and as a result they die. IUDs primary function is to prevent implantation, and they still allow conception!
The words “contraception, sterilization, and abortion” are always used together. They are a threesome in feminist and humanist literature. They use these three weapons for the same purpose-to eliminate children! As Christians, we have tried to separate contraception and sterilization from the issue of abortion. But they all have the same purpose. In fact, abortion is a back-up plan to eliminate life if contraception and sterilization are not successful.

Other Thoughts Concerning Birth Control
“Fifty-nine modern nations are plagued by the high-tech benefits of birth-control pills. Each of them have waged a cultural war against babies. Each of them suffer below-replacement birthrates. Each of them face potential extinction. But concerns such as national suffering, dangerous international geopolitics and the disappearance of entire nations are matters that would require mature thinking – something that was successfully bred-out of the American people when they accepted the pill as, in the words of Hugh Hefner, the greatest invention of the 20th century.”

God’s design is perfect. He is the creator of the universe. He creates each human being. When we use artificial birth control means, we are attempting to limit the power of the Creator. Should we desire to control the Creator’s hand?

Conception is a visitation from God! Take a look at Genesis 21:1 and 1 Samuel 2:20-21.
God gives life, while Satan takes it. Which will we choose? The Lord loves to bless us by multiplying our numbers. Take a look at Genesis 32:12, Deuteronomy 6:3, 7:13, 13:7, 28:11a, 28:63a, 30:5, 30:9, 30:15-16, Psalm 115:12-15
