Ditching the Pill

Well, it’s not being done for moral reasons, but still, it’s a step in the right direction.

Who would have thought we would have ever even gotten to this point!?  We’ve got a very long way to go, but it’s a small victory.

Those of us who have been trying – in our own small way – to get the issue of contraception out there should be doing some high-fives — if only to celebrate the decrease in the profitability of the companies who made money off of dead women and sexual immorality.

  1. It’s definitely a step in the right direction.

    The big caveat is whether the male goes along, because “any form of natural family planning requires both commitment and a willingness to abstain from penetrative sex for almost a week a month.”

    Too many men are enslaved to sex and haven’t learned to treat their wife as something other than an object of pleasure. That’s probably where most of the failure rate comes from, not from irregular cycles.

  2. The article makes the common error of confusing the ideal effectiveness of a method with the typical effectiveness of a method. The ideal effectiveness is a limit reached when everything is done right. The typical effectiveness is what happens when real people get involved! The 99% quoted for the pill is the ideal effectiveness. The typical effectiveness is about 92%. The ideal effectiveness of natural methods is also above 99%.
