17- Contraception Why Not teaching:

Read this excellent essay on what Gandhi foresaw 75 years ago on what would happen with contraception. It is very interesting!

Here are a few excerpts:
It is an insult to the fair sex to put up her case in support of birth-control by artificial methods. As it is, man has sufficiently degraded her for his lust, and artificial methods, no matter how well meaning the advocates may be, will still further degrade her. I urge the advocates of artificial methods to consider the consequences. Any large use of the methods is likely to result in the dissolution of the marriage bond and in free love...Birth control to me is a dismal abyss.

He feared that men and women would become "mental and moral wrecks" if they embraced contraception.
"Artificial methods [of contraception] are like putting a premium on vice. They make man and woman reckless," and "birth controllers turn vice into virtue. When sexual indulgence is regarded a virtue, it will be the undoing of man."
