I’ve posted before on my frustrations in my liberal, many times anti-Christian social work master’s program. Last night my instructor was going over some info on teen pregnancy, abortion rates, condom failure, etc. He went onto say that the female body is doing “everything it can to get pregnant”, that a woman can get pregnant at any time even if she is not ovulating, the woman’s body releases more than one egg a cycle, and that a woman can become pregnant while on her period because “if this stimulation is hard enough, it will stimulate the ovaries to produce an egg.”
As someone who has researched nfp and fertility for several years now, I was fuming. All through class I thought about how I could tactfully confront him after class on how misleading and incorrect the info was. But after class, a lot of my classmates milled around in the room and I thought it best to not discuss this with him in front of a lot of other people. I do plan to address it with him because I think it’s important that he at least be given some shred of factual information on this topic. What made me really sad was all the gasps and shocked looks from women in my class when he was stating these “facts”. You could almost hear them making a mental note to go out and get birth control.
I’m not generally a confrontational person and I imagine he won’t believe what I explain anyway, but I think it’s important to witness and I really feel the Holy Spirit moving my heart on this. Any thoughts on this, how to approach him, resources to present, etc? And please let me know if I’m about to stick my foot in my mouth in anyway in addressing his “facts”.
