  • God specifically cursed women with pain and sorrow during childbirth (Genesis 3:16).  Therefore, any use of drugs or similar things to reduce this pain and sorrow is an attempt to circumvent God’s curse, and is immoral.
    Okay. So it's also immoral for men to work in air conditioned offices since man is cursed to earn his living by the sweat of his brow.

  • And the Church teaching that specifically prohibits women from using such drugs is ....?
    It's the Independent Fundamental Baptist Church teaching...

    This is the Reformation-era heavily warped interpretation of Scripture. 

    It's an argument I've actually heard before, but only with the whack fundie Baptists. Like, the ones who appoint any Tom or Joe who can yell and quote Scripture to be a pastor because seminaries are "unbiblical".

  • What BS!!!  God gave man the intelligence to create pain meds to ease suffering.  Like it or not, epidurals are here to stay.  This aint Little House on the Prairie!  The woman He wanted to deliver babies without analgesics were born in 1856.  This is 2018....get with the times.

    The logic that rallies against modern science and mechanical advancements is  crazy!

    Throw away your power tools, your motor vehicles, your diabetes and hypertension meds while your at it to!

    You nutter!

  • Pain meds only made things worse for my wife, so she stopped using them after our first couple, and her deliveries went much better without them.  First time, the meds only took effect on one side of her body.  Second time, they gave her too much so that she could not feel her body in order to push properly (prolonged the labor significantly).  So she stopped using them.  I have to say that my wife had some of the most incredibly beautiful and dignified labors, despite the pain.

  • Then so is anesthesia for a bowel resection or bypass surgery!  Pain and sickness are due to Original Sin.  Suck it up, Tradcats!

  • While the OP's assertion is ridiculous, let's not equate labor pains with the need for surgical anesthesia. Many first-time mothers approach labor with the attitude that the pain involved is always more than an average person can handle and request medical interventions before their labor has even begun.

    We should be aware of some of the motivations of those who encourage this mindset. When I worked at a hospital, there was a bit of a controversy because the L&D nurses were encouraging women to wait until they actually experienced pain that they wanted relief for before requesting an epidural rather than out of fear of what was to come. Of course, this resulted in many women discovering that labor pains are in many cases more like a high degree of discomfort rather than an unbearable pain. When the company providing anesthesia services found out about this practice among the nurses, they complained and the nurses were no longer allowed to make any recommendations to the laboring mothers.

    I'm generally not in favor of labor interventions mostly because the question of what is causing the huge increases in things like autism and allergies has not been solved. I once was interviewed by a grad student looking to do a study on a possible link between labor interventions and autism -- her study was specifically regarding either Pitocin or epidurals, I don't recall which -- but she was having a very difficult time finding people who had not used the drug in question during labor.

    Nonetheless, there are many times when pain alleviation is advisable and there is absolutely no religious reason not to take advantage of this medical aid whenever the need arises.
