To those who are commenting that the above graphic does not address cases of rape, you are right, it does not. It was never intended to ignore the severity of rape but to present an idea that chastity is an option for those engaging in willing sexual intercourse.
To those commenting on this post and saying that the birth control pill is also a solution for cramps, acne, and other issues, there are alternatives out there that do not involve screwing up your body’s natural hormones. If you look into NaPro technology, or ask your doctor, more and more women are finding healthier and natural choices. 1Flesh.org for example, has great information.
“Oral contraceptives, which are potentially abortifacient, provide only symptomatic treatment when prescribed for women’s health problems, and they do not affect the underlying causes. The birth control pill is used to “treat” menstrual cramps, recurrent ovarian cysts, abnormal bleeding, premenstrual syndrome, acne, irregular cycles, and endometriosis.” The Pope Paul VI Institute is just one of those centres that is offering new solutions.
To those commenting that it’s their body, to be used as they choose, you’re right. It IS your body and it’s your choice but if you want to understand a bit of why I would never recommend contraception or sex outside of marriage, then I invite you to read this post or read some of my previous posts tagged contraception.
