I highly recommend any of Dr. Janet Smith's resources. You can get a free transcript of Contraception:Why Not here - http://www.mycatholicfaith.org/JanetESmith/Documents/OfficialTranscriptContraceptionWhyNot.doc
If you're looking for a talk that addresses the health and biological problems with contraception I recommend her talk "Hormones R' Us" - http://shop.mycatholicfaith.org/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2&products_id=16
She also talks about the church's teachings on Natural Family Planning here - http://shop.mycatholicfaith.org/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2&products_id=23
One More Soul provides a great resource for locating physicians who promote or teach NFP. You can find their locator here - http://onemoresoul.com/nfp-providers
God bless you as you venture into the medical field! So many people need your help! You will be in our prayers!
Are there any certified nurse midwifery programs in U.S. that do not require dispensing of contraceptives as well as teaching the techniques of providing for abortions?
Check out the work of Dr. Hilgers in Omaha, NE. His PPVI Fertility Clinic treats couples with well-researched and tested techniques that are in alignment with the moral teachings of the Church. I seem to have heard that they even have programs to train doctors in these techniques.
I attend Texas A&M Health Science Center COM and am very happy with the local Catholic parishes (I have attended St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Mary's; there are others, however, even though Bryan/College Station is a small city). I have shadowed at St. Joseph's hospital, where A&M third-years do many rotations. The hospital administration includes Franciscan nuns, there is a crucifix in each room, Mass is offered daily, and no abortions or sterilizations are performed.
When I applied to medical school, I decided not to apply to the five Catholic options. Their Catholic identity seemed superificial, and the high cost sealed the deal. I haven't regretted my decision.
St. Joseph Moscati, pray for us!
