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.…. Q: Which types of birth control methods do you find the people who come to you are using the most and what are the dangers associated with these?
A: It depends on the country. In the U.S. women are still using the pill, but less, because the media has given some info on the negative side effects and people are getting scared. Young people, however, are still using patches and other forms of contraception, and they are falling into this trap because society continues to lure them into being promiscuous; that is the main problem. By the time they come to us, by the time they get married, they are already wounded because they have tried a lot of things; we are the last resource in the first world.
In the third world, however, they are still using the 3-month injections the most. It does so much harm to the poor. They are given it while mothers’ are breastfeeding their babies. The steroids are going right through the breast milk to the babies and that is a calamity. It causes cancer, heart disease, you name it; the list is interminable. And with the lack of the health facilities in the third world, it is criminal.
The pill, IUDs, injections, and the patch are devastating to the poor because they all carry the same steroids, which are known to be toxic and carcinogenic. 21 scientists with the World Health Organization in 2005 confirmed that estrogens in birth control methods are carcinogenic of the number one type, which is the most dangerous type of all….(Source)
But..but…but…contraception is the most important thing in the whole wide world. It’s so great and there can never be any consequences to it. The government tells us so.
Q: What do think is the reason for the lower divorce rate?
A: There are many reasons, but the main reason is that both husband and wife are cooperating to bring life into the world or postpone it. The husband is fertile all the time and the woman is only fertile for 100 hours; most women don’t know this. God in his wisdom has put this natural science in the women’s body and it’s very obvious. Just like menstruation is obvious, the fertile time is obvious. It is a matter of paying attention.
NFP is not the same as contraception on so many different fronts. Let me tell you about one of them. NFP demands that both spouses communicate with one another. In other words, if you want to avoid pregnancy, you’d better know the cycles and the signs. And, of course, that takes co-operation, communication, self discipline, and loving patience. On the other hand, contraception is all about a quickie with no consideration for a woman’s body or the work and love that are required to precede love-making in an NFP relationship. Divorce rates went up when contraception became popular. Divorce rates go up when spouses use one another and don’t develop a strong relationship through sexual communication. Contraception puts a muzzle on communication. The marriage then dies.
The problem is, is there is such a money making business in contraception, so they are very anxious to keep NFP in the dark.
Yep. The best things in life are free.
