Amid political debate, new effort to promote Church teaching on contraception, NFP

Catholic World News - April 16, 2012

With a story on young Catholic women who are promoting a more positive understanding of Natural Family Planning, the Washington Post reports—and at the same time illustrates—that the US political debate on contraceptive coverage has drawn new attention for the Church’s teaching on birth control.

Janet Smith, a veteran champion of that Church teaching, is quoted by the Post making a remarkable—and no doubt accurate—observation: “More priests have given sermons on this in the past few weeks than in the last 50 years.”

    There is such a thirst and need for NFP information, and not just among Catholics! I had a very positive conversation with two male coworkers, one a Christian of no particular sect, the other a devout Muslim with 7 children, whose wife has nearly died in childbirth twice, but refuses to use artificial contraception. They were both VERY interested to hear that I had used NFP with great ease and success. Spread the word: NFP saves health, lives, and marriages! Women AND men want to know.
