To determine if a moral act is a sin, I was told that the intention of the person and the circumstances surrounding the moral act must be taken into consideration. Then, following our conscience, we each must decide for ourselves whether or not an act is sinful for us. So if I undergo sterilization with the intention of saving my marriage, or because I can’t afford another child then sterilization could be morally correct for me.
