THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BIRTH CONTROL AND NATURAL FAMILY PLANNING explained this way:
Trixie and Pixie both want to lose weight. Losing weight is not inherently sinful, and can be a good goal.
Trixie’s means to that end? She practices self-control and sacrifice by eating healthier meals and smaller portions, and even fasting for a time.
Pixie’s means to that end? She eats all she wants, in any portion, heavy on the sweets and treats. Each time she is done indulging her palate, she retreats to the bathroom where she sticks her finger down her throat and vomits it all back up.
I hope we all can agree that Trixie’s means of losing weight is moral and ordered, while Pixie’s means of losing weight is immoral and disordered.
Bulimia contradicts the body’s design by accepting the pleasure of eating, but willfully thwarting its life-giving purpose.
Contraception contradicts the body’s design by accepting the pleasure of sex, but willfully thwarting its life-giving purpose.
Natural Family Planning is a good means to a good end, thus is ordered and moral.
Contraception? It’s just sexual bulimia."
