  • Because their doctrine believes that their purpose is to bring children into the world, and by having kids its a celebration of the life given to them by god. Also, in all stems of christianity I believe abortion, contraception, and even condoms are not supported 100%. Abstinence believes that if you do have sex, and you get pregnant, it is your job to have the child. So basically, the goal is to populate the earth with more believers.

    • Im betting 90% of Christians are on some form of birth control. It's a bad idea to group different religions together and characterize them all the same way. They all have their own theologies, and even in those different theologies the people that practice them are all on different levels(aka: some people believe extremely, some people only believe some things, some people kinda believe). So take people as you find them.

      Here is a link to a mormon website:

    • Well if the birth control or protection fails, you certainly don't see a lot of them getting supported towards an abortion or they don't want removal of the kid- which is why mormon families have a lot of children in reference to question.
