Contraception

“The use of contraception has made sexual intercourse independent of parenthood and the marriage of the future will be confined to those who seek parenthood for its own sake rather than as the natural fulfillment of sexual love. But under these circumstances who will trouble to marry? Marriage will lose all attraction for young and pleasure loving, and the poor and the ambitious. The energy of youth will be devoted to contraceptive love and only when men and women become prosperous and middle-aged will they think of settling down to rear a strictly limited family.”

-British Historian and Catholic, Christopher Dawson- 1933
