the pill

Ricki Lake’s natural childbirth documentary The Business of Being Born questioned the over-medicalization of birth. Her new film, Sweetening the Pill, questions the over-use of artificial birth control. 

Sometimes the Catholic Church teaches something crazy that turns out to be prophetic. For example, maybe it’s not a good idea for 99% of women to put synthetic hormones in their bodies on a daily basis which eliminate their menstrual cycles, and have unwanted side effects. Perhaps natural methods like fertility awareness and natural family planning (which teach women how their bodies work without side effects) should also be taught. Watch the trailer here:
