Roman Catholics- they are against it as the purpose of sex is to create a family, not for lust

Protestants- They are fine with it as sex is important to hold a relationship together.

"the Lord gave and the Lord hath taken away"
"before I formed thee in the womb, I knew thee"
"be fruitful and multiply"
"life begins at conception"
"thou didst knit me together in my mother's womb"
- don't "play God"

Thanks but I already have the points I just need quotes. I got one for Roman Catholics = "Be fruitful and increase in number" (Genesis 1:28)

For against, you could do "Go forth and multiply" or "God gives life, God takes life away." I hope that helps.

Not as such, but I'd talk about how Quakers believe we each have free will, and so it is our choice whether to have kids or not. The Bible never explicitly states anything pro-contraception though. In both Christianty and Judaism, people are forbidden to "waste seed", but (I know you're not asking about Judaism but lol excuse me my tangent) in Judaism, a woman IS allowed to use contraception if she's underage, breast feeding, or already pregnant.

omg sry I'm such an idiot. the question was "Explain why some Christians are against the use of contraception."

I like to reference Thomas Aquinas' Natural Moral Law for against contraception
While on the other hand Josephs Fletcher's Situation Ethics for for contraception.

When you use ideas from philosophers/ scholars etc, do you think you've got to direct quote or can you just paraphrase?

You dont need to quote them, you just need to explain their ideas. That's why I like using them - less to remember

Ah that's amazing. For some reason I feel like my essays are empty without a significant amount of quotes so I'm always reluctant to include something unless it's a quote but that definitely puts me at ease.

How are you framing Aquinas' ideas to go against contraception?

I would say that the telos of genetalia is to reproduce, however having sex with contraception means it is impossible to reproduce, so it is breaking Thomas Aquinas' understanding of natural moral law
