For two decades of economic and social developments, people have organized intimate relationships and made choices that define their views of themselves and their places in society, in reliance on the availability of abortion in the event that contraception should fail.” United State Supreme CourtPlanned Parenthood vs. Casey (1992) Contraceptives as Abortifacients : Contraceptives as Abortifacients The contraceptive pill works in three ways: Prevents ovulation Prevents sperm from meeting egg As an abortifacient — prevents fertilized ovum from implanting in uterine wall.

In the face of this unfortunate fact, we your pastors have been remiss: how few are there among you whom we have reached. There have been some couples eager to share their expertise and values on birth regulation with others. They did not receive adequate support from their priests. We did not give them due attention, believing then this ministry consisted merely of imparting a technique best left to married couples. Philippine Bishops Apologize : Philippine Bishops Apologize Only recently have we discovered how deep your yearning is for God to be present in your married lives. But we did not know then how to help you discover God’s presence and activity in your mission of Christian parenting. Afflicted with doubts about alternatives to contraceptive technology, we abandoned you to your confused and lonely consciences with a lame excuse: “follow what your conscience tells you.” How little we realized that it was our consciences that needed to be formed first. A greater concern would have led us to discover that religious hunger in you. Reasons to condemn Contraception : Reasons to condemn Contraception a violation of the good of a woman’s physical and psychological health an impediment to the total self-giving of spousal love a rejection of God as Creator of new life Fertility is a Great Good : Fertility is a Great Good Violation of Physical Health : Violation of Physical Health Common Side-Effects : Common Side-Effects increased irritability increased propensity to depression weight gain reduced sex drive Dismissing Side Effects : Dismissing Side Effects Dr. Edris Rice-Wray, a faculty member of the Puerto Rico Medical School and medical director of the Puerto Rico Family Planning Association, was in charge of the trials. After a year of tests, Dr. Rice-Wray reported good news to Pincus. The Pill was 100% effective when taken properly. She also informed him that 17% of the women in the study complained of nausea, dizziness, headaches, stomach pain and vomiting. So serious and sustained were the reactions that Rice-Wray told Pincus that a 10-milligram dose of Enovid caused "too many side reactions to be generally acceptable." Dismissing Side Effects : Dismissing Side Effects Rock and Pincus quickly dismissed Rice-Wray's conclusions. Their patients in Boston had experienced far fewer negative reactions, and they believed many of the complaints were psychosomatic. The men also felt that problems such as bloating and nausea were minor compared to the contraceptive benefits of the drug. Although three women died while participating in the trials, no investigation was conducted to see if the Pill had caused the young women's deaths. Confident in the safety of the Pill, Pincus and Rock took no action to assess the root cause of the side effects. "SEXY" CONTRACEPTIVE PATCH FATALITY RATE REVEALED : "SEXY" CONTRACEPTIVE PATCH FATALITY RATE REVEALED 17 women between the ages of 17 and 30 have died since release of the "sexy" patch in 2002. These documents also revealed that 21 additional life threatening conditions have been found including: heart attacks, blood clots and strokes. 27 Sept 2004 An Insult to Women : An Insult to Women Monkeys and Contraception : Monkeys and Contraception The T-Shirt Tests : The T-Shirt Tests Contraceptive may kill libido : Contraceptive may kill libido When women on the Pill were tested, levels of a chemical which wipes out testosterone were found to be seven times higher than in those who had never taken it. Most worryingly, even those who were not on the Pill, but had taken it in the past, had levels up to four times higher than those who had never used it. Past studies had suggested taking the Pill could dampen a woman's sexual desire, but that if she came off it, her libido would return within a month. Dr Goldstein, former director of the Institute for Sexual Medicine at Boston University, Massachusetts, said that while his research seemed to suggest the effects could be permanent, more investigations were needed. 27may05 Sexual Chemistry : Sexual Chemistry FOR YEARS, PROZAC AND THE PILL HAVE GIVEN WOMEN EMOTIONAL STABILITY AND SEXUAL FREEDOM. BUT NEW RESEARCH SUGGESTS THESE DRUGS CAN NEGATIVELY AFFECT EVERYTHING FROM OUR SEX DRIVE TO OUR CHOICE OF A MATE. RACHAEL COMBE INVESTIGATES The magic of sexual attraction : The magic of sexual attraction They say female chemical messengers known as pheromones may help dupe men into thinking plain women are more attractive and beautiful women are less attractive than they actually are. Pheromones - the colourless, odourless chemical signals given off by the body - are thought to affect behaviour in both animals and humans at a sub-conscious level. 16 Dec 1998 Pollution 'changes sex of fish' : Pollution 'changes sex of fish' 10 July 2004 A third of male fish in British rivers are in the process of changing sex due to pollution in human sewage, research by the Environment Agency suggests. A survey of 1,500 fish at 50 river sites found more than a third of males displayed female characteristics. Hormones in the sewage, including those produced by the female contraceptive pill, are thought to be the main cause. The agency says the problem could damage fish populations by reducing their ability to reproduce.

Increasingly studies show that rates equivalent to those with other contraceptive methods are readily achieved in the developed and developing worlds. Indeed, a study of 19,843 poor women in India had a pregnancy rate approaching zero. Natural family planning is cheap, efficient, without side effects, and may be particularly acceptable to and efficacious among people in areas of poverty.” Dr. R. E. J. RyderBritish Medical Journal, Sept. 18, 1993 NFP vs. Contraception : NFP vs. Contraception Benefits of NFP : Benefits of NFP No bad physical side-effects Requires mutual sacrifice Enhances communication between spouses and strengthens marriages Strengthens couple’s relationship with God No harm to society Miracle at Cana : Miracle at Cana
