I will quote what I said about this on my blog:
We need to support Dr. Hilger’s and the Pope Paul IV Institute to continue to develop therapies. We need to create more local lists of physicians who either are trained in napro or who are NFP friendly AND we need to keep those lists up-to-date (fertilitycare.org and onemoresoul.com are great resources, but we’d have more resources if we included NFP friendly physicians and recognize that Cathlics organizations ARE NOT our only resources). We need to talk about diet, exercise and see how that touches not only our hormonal health, but perhaps even the sin of gluttony (Perhaps stop thinking of it as merely over-eating). And ABOVE ALL we need to forgive the fact that there probably aren’t enough physicians trained in these alternative approaches to help all the Catholics in the world avoid the birth control.
**We need to stop JUDGING our Catholic sisters who tell us that they’re on the pill for real problems. ** AND we need to stop pretending that “Oh you don’t need that! NFP can be used with ANY cycle irregularity! Just take midol. Stop being so vain about your acne. And, even though there are no Creighton instructors in our area and no napro doctor, I HEARD naprotechnology SOLVES EVERYTHING! Allergic to sperm? Oh yes, Dr. Hilger’s must have a solution to that one too. It’s not on his website, but Dr. Hilger’s is solves everything. There’s absolutely no health problem that could POSSIBLY create a situation that might challenge our moral presumptions because Dr. Hilgers exists. He’s like a modern day Jesus, performing miracles left and right."
As for concerned about the immorality of using hormonal birth control for non-contraceptive reasons, I offered this:
There are those in some branches of the pro life movement who insist that the birth control pill causes abortion. So while Humanae Vitae says “On the other hand, the Church does not consider at all illicit the use of those therapeutic means necessary to cure bodily diseases, even if a foreseeable impediment to procreation should result there from—provided such impediment is not directly intended for any motive whatsoever.” [See paragraph 15], that doesn’t matter because he birth control pill MIGHT prevent implantation.
But here’s the thing. This MAYBE is a true maybe. No one started tracking ovulation and fertilization in women on the pill. No one was following any little new babies down their trip through into the uterus and watched them fail to implant. No, not at all. They simply knew that in screwing with a woman’s hormonal balance, this can effect the endometrium tissue JUST LIKE hormonal imbalances can do with irregular cycles. Could it actually be that women who are on the pill for irregular cycles are actually reducing their chances of an early undetected and spontaneous miscarriage? I don’t know, but I DON’T think hormonal contraceptive can be put n the level of direct abortion.
