    were raised Catholic.  Their parents were very devout & the kids went to Catholic school until high school.  They all have two or three kids only, so obviously the nuns didn't beat the birth control lesson into them with the rulers sufficiently.

      if he agreed to support her kids financially and help raise them , she would have more kids. She just had one child and she was criticized by the priest and other church menbers a great deal. But she was great, she told them off and told them how it was. And amazingly she kept going to the church and they soon kept quiet and did not bug her again. They learned not mess with Aunt Agnes.  LOL!!

        My mother-in-law was told by her doctor, after her eighth pregnancy (7 survived) that she should not get pregnant again and it was a big risk to her health.  As a good Catholic she went to her priest, who, surprisingly, told her God would not want her to die in childbirth and leave the other 7 kids motherless.  So they used birth control.  Hope that priest didn't get excommunicated for being sensible and compassionate; of course, I'm sure they kept it quiet!
