Center For Disease Control Admits: NFP Works!



Young women are being taught to use the Morning-After Pill, but are deliberately not being told how it works.  At the same time, they are deliberately not being taught how to use Natural Family Planning, or NFP, which—even the CDC now admits—does work. For years, the Population Research Institute has warned about the dangers of contraception. Our founder, Father Paul Marx, O.S.B, never tired of explaining that the morning-after pill is an abortifacient. By design, it ends …

Natural Family Planning



Our new video addresses a form of fertility management that is cost-free, pill-free, and free of coercion. The new video is titled: “Natural Family Planning: the Best Worst Thing Ever.” Watch the video. Get the facts. Share with friends. “You can sacrifice frequency, taking time off during fertile periods.”             While men are always fertile, women are only fertile a short period of time during each menstrual cycle (about 28-31 days). …

Melinda Gates Wants to Help Women Around the World



Surely, Mrs. Gates would not have chosen this course if she knew the serious risks of Depo-Provera and if anyone—her Catholic parents, her Catholic high school teachers at the Ursuline Academy in Dallas or her parish priests (she attends Mass near her Medina, Washington home)—had taken the time to explain Humanae Vitae to her. This is, of course, the prophetic 1968 encyclical by Pope Paul VI that reaffirms the timeless teaching of the Church on …

The Antidote to Coercive Population Control



The primary tenet of population control is simple: using contraception and abortifacients, families can “control” when their reproductive systems work and when they don’t – hence the endless cries that women “should have control over their own bodies” in the name of reproductive health. However, in much of the world, the glittering rhetoric of fertility control gives way to the reality of control of the poorest citizens by their governments or large corporations. Governments and …

African Women Turning to Natural Family Planning; Turning Down Abortifacient Contraceptives, Survey Reveals



It seemed like your typical family planning conference: it was sponsored by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and the World Health Organization’s Department of Reproductive Health and Research. It had the typical title: “Is access enough? Understanding and addressing unmet need for Family Planning.” It even seemed to have the usual group of presenters ready with their cherry-picked findings to lobby for even more money to be spent on the contraception and sterilization …

Of Mice and Men: New Study Touts a Male Contraceptive



Radical feminists have long dreamed of “fixing” men, so that women could be relieved of the burden of birth control. Now comes a new study on mice purporting to show that men can be chemically neutered, supposedly without side effects. Male birth control has been the object of much research over the past few decades, but to little avail. Most of the drugs used in trials to stop sperm production also produced unfortunate side effects, …

Mosher: “My Employees Don’t Want Free Contraception”



FRONT ROYAL, Va., March 5, 2012 PRNewswire-USNewswire — In violation of the First Amendment, President Obama has ordered all Catholic nonprofits to provide their employees with so-called “modern methods of birth control.” “We at Population Research Institute reject this unlawful ‘mandate’,” says PRI President Steven Mosher. “Not only does it violate our deeply held religious beliefs, it also violates our mission: to protect and defend innocent unborn life.” “Sandra Fluke probably doesn’t know that the …
