Of course, this simply isn't the case. The Church doesn't want her children to "mindlessly breed", in fact,
"The Church is the first to praise and commend the application of human intelligence to an activity in which a rational creature such as man is so closely associated with his Creator. But she affirms that this must be done within the limits of the order of reality established by God." (Humanae Vitae, 16)Far from mindless reproduction the Church calls the faithful to a greater standard of reason than that demanded of the contracepting world. Indeed, it is contraception that allows for mindless sexual activity, while the Church requires Catholics to think about what they are doing, indeed, to have reasons for spacing births.
If therefore there are well-grounded reasons for spacing births, arising from the physical or psychological condition of husband or wife, or from external circumstances, the Church teaches that married people may then take advantage of the natural cycles immanent in the reproductive system and engage in marital intercourse only during those times that are infertile, thus controlling birth in a way which does not in the least offend the moral principles which We have just explained." (Humanae Vitae, 16).Like most things, the Catholic Church, zealous protector of faith and reason, seeks the greatest dignity of her children and calls them to use their reason in deciding to have more children.
