Abortion Answer

Last month the Supreme Court rejected Texas' regulations on abortuariesThe real "killing fields" of abortion clinics were required to meet the same standards as ambulatory surgical centers (e.g. halls wide enough to allow gurneys through).  In addition, abortionists must have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital.  Are these unreasonable rules?
Can judicial activism determine ethics?  Is it right to kill babies and sell baby parts for profit?  Most contraceptives are actually abortifacients.  Is there an answer for these tragedies?

Have you heard of the Billings Ovulation Method (BOM)?  In 1953, Dr. John Billings (d. 2007) discovered the relationship between cervical mucus and fertility.  This method of natural family planning has even been taught to illiterate groups with positive results.  In 2005, 18% of abortions were performed on married women!   This could have been avoided completely by using the ovulation method.

According to John Brennan (M.D. OB-GYN, Medical College of Wisconsin), "One of the most significant discoveries of this century [20th] in the field of human reproduction has been the development of this new natural method of family planning - the Ovulation Method. ... a woman is only fertile approximately 100 hours per cycle ..."

Love and Fertility by Mercedes Wilson is an excellent down-to-earth explanation of the method and includes tons of helpful illustrations.  The Ovulation Method has been used in over 100 countries, is about 99% effective, has no side-effects and costs nothing‼  For detailed research supporting this technique see The Ovulation Method of Birth Regulation published by Van Nostrand Reinhold (also by Wilson).
For a vital intro on life issues, be sure to see the documentary Whatever Happened to theHuman Race? by C. Everett Koop (former Surgeon General) and Francis Schaeffer.  What do you think about abortion?  Let us know  ned_oa_1657@yahoo.com
