Great read as Unplanned opens this weekend.

"Pregnancy only further convinced me of the humanity of the unborn and their right to be protected, from seeing my little kidney-bean baby on my first ultrasound to feeling him hiccup and kick. But, just as importantly, the struggles I experienced as a new mom helped me to empathize with women considering abortion in a way that nothing before had."

Let’s talk about periodic abstinence.

"Abstinence isn’t fun. There! From the mouth of an NFP instructor and advocate. I said it. If you want to have s*x with your spouse, choosing a discipline that requires you to not partake in that activity for a set amount of days each month is not the ideal selling point."

As International Women’s Day comes to a close, we do well to recognize Our Blessed Mother — the one woman whose love has touched — and continues to touch — the hearts of countless people. The words of St. Mother Teresa about Our Blessed Mother are as relevant today as they have been for more than 2,000 years: “Pray especially to Our Blessed Mother Mary, placing all your intentions into her hands. For she loves you as she loves her Son. She will guide you in all your relationships so that peace may fill your life.”

"FABMs are inexpensive, green, and are as effective as hormonal contraceptives with correct use. In addition to helping users achieve or avoid pregnancy, using an FABM can provide clues to identify and treat a number of other underlying health issues that are otherwise masked by hormonal birth control." #NFP #fertilityawareness

A Couple Grows Closer Making Choices Together - FACTS

“Fertility is not a woman’s problem,” said James to Dr. Krach. “It is not a problem at all. Men should not be asking their wives to eliminate their fertility before having s*x. NFP gives us a way to embrace the fullness of masculinity and femininity in our marriage while offering a medically-sound technique for achieving and postponing pregnancy.”

It's Men's Health Week! And we celebrate by highlighting a husband who recognizes a woman’s fertility is not a problem to be solved, but a gift to be appreciated, valued, and respected.

"I have been shocked about how much I have learned about my body that I had never known or been aware of before! That gift of knowledge and empowerment is one that I am excited to pass on to my own daughter someday."

Doctors would not say that her dizziness, pain, and mood swings were side effects of her Copper IUD, but she knew, and eventually found truly natural birth control.
