Some Christians agree with this statement because by using a contraceptive they are going against God's will 'Be fruitful and multiply' Roman Catholics would also agree with this statement because they believe in Sanctity of life which is where all life is precious and sacred so by using contraceptive you are deliberately killing life (The sperm)
some Muslims would disagree with this statement because they believe that its ok to use contraceptive as long as there is always they chance of new life so there cannot be anything permanent e.g vasectomies. They would disagree because although by using contraceptive they are choosing not to get pregnant they are ensure that they maintain their quality of life, for example if they had a child and they couldnt afford to look after if properly then they would have a poor qualitiy of life, so contraceptives dont encourage couples to be selfish, if anything they are being more responsible.

I dont think couples are selfish becuase they use contraception, as contraception prevents them from becoming pregnant, contraception is therefore seen as an alternative to abortion. Christians are against all conraception apart from artificial.
