Life at risk

There are special situations in which the use of contraceptives is not only allowed, but obligatory. This applies to cases where a person’s life needs to be protected.


First Example

The husband has contracted AIDS and may come back home drunk.

The wife has to use a contraceptive to protect herself from catching the disease.


Second Example

A wife may have been diagnosed as incapable of surviving another pregnancy.

The husband should use a contraceptive to protect her.
