Church will not change teaching on contraception says priest

Nothing will ever change the Catholic Church’s stand on contraceptives, says Suva, Fiji, vicar-general Father Sulio Turagakacivi.

Responding to concerns by the Catholic Women’s League members regarding the church’s stand on contraception and the expensive exercise of raising children in a money-driven society in this era, Fr Turagakacivi said no laws or ideology would change the church’s stand.

League members had enquired with health officials during a recent awareness forum if the church’s stand was a reasonable one.

Turagakacivi said the church would always respect and preserve the sacredness and dignity of human life from conception and onwards.

He said no laws, ideology, or teaching would ever change the church’s stand because the use of contraceptives robs a child’s right to life.

He added no one had the right to deprive any child of their right to live.
