What is the Baha’i view on Vasectomy?

“Directly to your question about having a vasectomy, in general it is not permissible to have a surgical operation for the purpose of avoiding having unwanted children if such an operation could result in permanent sterility. While circumstances might exist in which sterilization would be justified, this does not appear to be the case with you.”

(From a letter of the Universal House of Justice to an individual believer, May 30, 1974)
