I don't see how someone can claim to feel good about doing something that the Church strongly discourages.
I do!! I do!! Because it's bullshit, that's why!
The handbook goes on to clarify that surgical sterilization should be considered only if medical conditions jeopardize life or if someone is mentally incompetent and not responsible for his or her actions.

Wanting to get to the root of the problem I asked them where the idea came from. They felt that with 1 year old twins and 3 other children at home they couldn't afford and didn't have the space for more. Frankly I am disappointed at their lack of faith. As prophesied Satan is deceiving the very elect.
This cannot be for real, y'all. It can't.
