Going Against the Grain

I am for the Reproductive Health bill. Thus, the Ateneo professors' position paper backing the bill. is a welcome development. Natural methods of family planning may not be for everyone. Artificial methods may also be a useful tool for smart parenting.

The Inquirer reports:

The Ateneo professors said limiting Catholics to the natural family planning method “will be a disservice if not a grave injustice to women and couples for whom NFP simply cannot work.”

“We are thinking of women who find it impossible to predict their infertile periods, or couples who see each other on an irregular basis, or women who are trapped in abusive relationships with men who demand sex anytime they want it,” they said.

More on the Reproductive Health Bill next time.
