No. The Church
condemns birth control as "gravely contrary to the natural law" and "sanctions
only such true control as may be procured by abstinence", wherever such
abstinence is licit. Against great pressure, and with the aid of the Holy
Spirit, the Church rightly holds that it is immoral to enjoy the pleasures of
marriage without being open to the possibility of new life, the very purpose of
the marital act. Couples should also be aware that, besides being gravely
sinful, artificial birth control can be both abortifacient & unhealthy.

"Even with a lawful
wife, the marriage act is unlawful and shameful if the conception of offspring
is prevented. That is what Onan, the son of Juda, did and on that account God
put him to death." (St. Augustine, Doctor of the Church)
