"The bearing of children is the crowning glory of woman's life.
For a healthy, married woman to avoid it is to shirk her duty to her husband
and her Creator.
"To reduce the frequency of conception where a woman's health and
life are involved, or where hereditary disease appears in the offspring,
is commendable. In such cases nature provides a remedy, and there is no
other. Sexual intercourse must be avoided ten days before, ten after and
during the menstrual flow."
Gosh, that doesn't leave much time.
