Food for thought.....

Feb 16th 2013 new

I believe the catholic church should make a decision on whether or not using viagra is again Catholic teaching and God.


1)We all believe or asked to believe that abortion for what ever reason is against our teaching and church.
2) We all or are suppose to believe and practice ---NO premarital sex. Though I noticed that it is an option on this site.

If the above it true... Viagra also should be against Catholic believes and practice. God, whether directly or by medication is the one that chooses to make a man impotent. There maybe a very good reason God decided for the man to be impotent. His sperms maybe defective....Why put an innocent child through that misery. GOD is merciful. What gives humans the right to over ride GOD. We should not override GOD's decision in any matter when it comes to reproduction.
SEX is for reproduction and married couples. If sex in a marriage produces a handicapped child at least the child will have two loving parents. Handicapped children born by premarital sex are often raised solely by the mother since the father suddenly realizes that the church does not condone premarital sex.


What do other Catholic males or females think of the above. Agree or disagree and why?

Carol, I never even thought about it as far as Church commandments go. It is food for thought. No opinion yet
because married people use it as well as singles.

I don't follow your argument, actually. Premises (1) and (2) seem totally irrelevant to your argument.

Your argument seems to be that God is the only one who should make decisions with respect to reproduction. As far as I know, that is not a guiding priniciple of Catholic sexual ethics. More important is the principle that we should not go against God's design or intention. Contraception, for example, is not at all in accord with God's intention for human sexuality. But impotence is also not in accord with that. Male sex organs were not created to be impotent, of course. So, can't it be argued that Viagra and similar products are good things that can be used to correct the defect of impotence (only within the context of marriage, of course), just as we use medicines in general to treat human disease? Unless... you insist that God intends that men become impotent at some point as they grow older. That doesn't seem to square with Scripture, though, as Abraham and Sarah had Isaac in their old age.

I don't see that there is a pressing moral issue here, so I don't think the Church is going to make an official teaching on the morality of Viagra.

This is a duplicate of another topic which has significantly more replies, so I'm locking this one so the discussion will be in one place.
