Does Permitted Use of Contraceptives negate Faith in G-d?

Question

I was asked by a member of our Madrid community who needs to use contraceptives for proper medical reasons: Does pregnancy prevention which a rabbi approved still contradict faith in G-d?
 

Answer

This is no contradiction. In general everything given by G-d for use in this world that is permitted according to Halacha is considered a proper effort just like efforts to heal using medicine and efforts to earn a livelihood.
