NO, THEY SHOULD MARRY AND HAVE CHILDREN, AS GOD INTENDED:

Nuns should go on the Pill, says Lancet study (Martin Beckford,  08 Dec 2011, The Telegraph)

A paper in The Lancet claims that Roman Catholic nuns pay a "terrible price for their chastity", as not having babies puts them at greater risk of breast, ovarian and uterine tumours.

This is because women who never give birth or breastfeed have more periods than those who do, and an increased number of menstrual cycles has been linked to higher cancer risk.

By contrast, the contraceptive pill has been shown to significantly reduce the chances of women developing ovarian and uterine cancers without increasing breast cancer risk.

Australian scientists claim that in spite of the Vatican's prohibition on artificial birth control, an document written by a former Pope suggests that nuns could be allowed to take the Pill.

002:018 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be
        alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

002:019 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the
        field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam
        to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called
        every living creature, that was the name thereof.

002:020 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air,
        and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not
        found an help meet for him.

002:021 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he
        slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh
        instead thereof;

002:022 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a
        woman, and brought her unto the man.

002:023 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my
        flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of
        Man.

002:024 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and
        shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
