Why THE PILL is EVIL!!!!!
I have managed to live all my adult life without contraception. I avoided the Pill like the plague. I knew it was an abortifacient and that it was, for lack of better word, inherently evil. Unfortunately due to some rather miserable Menopausal symptoms I caved and took the pill for 5 whole days. It was supposed to be 3 weeks. It was a miserable 5 days. I have long eschewed Birth Control. Jim and I believe God is in control of families and their size. Yes, He does give you the Grace and ability to handle however many you end up with. I know this because despite some interesting issues I am still relatively intact after parenting 8. RELATIVELY! It is our sick society that tells you any more that 2 and you are going to be miserable. Even Christian/Catholic friends see more than 2 or 3 children as a burden.
Scripture tells us that Debt is a curse and Children are a blessing. In our culture we apply for a curse and refuse blessings. What is wrong with THAT picture!
I even read an article recently that talked about how women on the pill are making bad choices in men. The pill tricks your body into thinking it is pregnant. Therefore, your natural ability to choose a suitable mate for yourself is inhibited by hormones. Now that is not science, just an opinion. Still it does make one wonder with the decline of American Morals in the last 50 years. This year the pill is 50! It has not freed women, it has enslaved us into believing the most treasured and cherished and difficult job on earth is a hassle. That our precious sexuality is up for grabs because we will not be burdened with a child until we choose. We choose!?! God is THE AUTHOR OF LIFE. Amazing things happen when He is in control.
Women must take their bodies and souls back. Femininity, fertility etc are gifts from God. Instead of squashing it and competing with men and talking about reproductive freedom (aka the pill) we must find true freedom as whole women. Not, medicated, sterilized, gender neutral drones. Our power is in our femininity, not in our ability to be like men.
I pray daily for the eradication of the pill and the end to abortion. What have we come to?
Middle Aged Homeschooling, Homemaking Rural Mom to 8 and Grandma to 1. Married to a very "special" guy. He is my best friend and I thank God for him every day. He keeps me outside of my shell and shows me the beauty of this world. I can be such a nudge!
I love my Heavenly Father, my Catholic Faith, my amazing Hubby, my 8 wild children and 1 grandson. I have a heart for Priests. All they do, and all they willingly gave up for our Lord. What would we do without them!
We live on a few acres in rural NE WA State. The country life is wonderful, dusty, messy and fun! I am blessed!
