Sikhism: contraception and abortion
Contraception or ‘birth control’ is used for a variety of reasons:
There are no rules in Sikhism against the use of contraceptives. Sikhism teaches that couples should decide whether they use family planning and what method they should use. However, natural methods of contraception are generally preferred to artificial methods and devices.
Contraception may be seen as necessary for health of the partners or the upbringing of existing children.
