Posh and Becks are a force for good in the world
Written by Francis Phillips   

I hope they communicate to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge the fun of having four children

Some people just don’t get it. Simon Ross of Population Matters has been quoted in the Observer as stating: “We need to change the incentives to make the case that one or two children are fine, but three or four are just being selfish. The Beckhams… are very bad role models.”

Interview with World’s Leading Proponent of Natural Family Planning on the Dangers of Contraception
Written by By John-Henry Westen   

ROME, Italy, June 27, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In an excusive LifeSiteNews.com interview, Mercedes Wilson, founder and President of the Natural Family Planning organization, Family for the Americas, explained the negative effects contraception has on a woman’s body and on a couple’s marriage. She also described Family for the Americas’ mission to spread knowledge of NFP to the poor and confirmed that when practiced properly, it is 99 percent effective. Her organization has taught millions in over 100 nations and in 20 different languages about NFP, not only by teaching people how to practice it, but also how to themselves become teachers of NFP.

The Contraception Contradiction
Written by Daniel Allott   
Growing evidence suggests that the “more contraceptives, fewer abortions” theory is flawed.

New York City is the abortion capital of America. More than 40 percent of pregnancies in New York City end in abortion (excluding miscarriages), nearly twice the national rate. The abortion rate among the city’s black residents is a jaw-dropping 60 percent. In 2009, New York City saw more than 87,000 abortions—one roughly every six minutes.

Africa Needs Population Growth, Not Birth Control
Written by Chinwuba Iyizoba   

The United Nations recently published its two-yearly update of world population projections. These suggest that Nigeria could rise to 725 million people by 2100. Western media are shrilly calling for Nigeria to put a check on her population growth.

No way, sorry. We Nigerians are rejoicing.

New studies point to clot risk of Bayer's Yasmin
(Reuters) - New evidence emerged on Thursday that women taking Bayer's best-selling contraceptive Yasmin may run a higher risk of dangerous blood clots than those using older birth-control pills.

Two studies showed that users of pills containing drospirenone, one of the hormones used in Yasmin, had a two to threefold higher risk of venous thromboembolism than did users of those containing the older synthetic hormone levonorgestrel, according to two studies in the British Medical Journal.

Bitter Pill
Written by Timothy Reichert   
Economists and other social scientists have written extensively about the impact that contraception has had on modern sexual relationships. Almost without exception, the academic establishment makes the claim that contraceptive technology is a social good. By contrast, the Catholic Church (and until recent decades the Christian establishment generally) asserts that the practice of contraception is, in fact, directly contrary to the health of individual families and to society as a whole.

Catholics Who Use Contraception Aren’t The Only Cafeteria Catholics.
Written by Dr. Pia de Solenni   
Reading Simcha Fisher’s recent post on natural family planning (NFP) reminds me of the fact that there are lots of different types of cafeteria Catholics, that is Catholics who pick and choose which Church teachings they will accept. In this case, Simcha’s targeting that vocal minority that seems to question the licitness of NFP. Yes, even PODs (pious and overly devout Catholics, of which I’ve been said to be one) can be cafeteria Catholics.

Honestly, part of me doesn’t understand how we can keep having the same conversation over and over and over and over. And a lot of the discussion doesn’t seem to be constructive, probably not the sort of thing that would convince someone to not use contraception.

Fighting ‘contraceptive mentality’ is ‘essential’ for the culture of life: Cardinal Burke
Written by Patrick B Craine   

SYDNEY, Australia, March 18, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Restoring the “respect for the integrity of the conjugal act” and correcting the contraceptive mentality that “fears procreation,” is “fundamental” to the New Evangelization and its effort to transform Western culture, said Cardinal Raymond Burke, prefect of the Vatican’s Apostolic Signatura, earlier this month.

In a March 11th address to the Australian Catholic Students Association, the prelate offered reflections on the “crisis of Christian culture in the West” and the effort to build a Catholic culture “in fidelity to our vocation to give witness to Christ and, therefore, to be martyrs for the faith.”
