The Church and NFP teachers have been too silent on a method of natural family planning that has many benefits and requires no abstinence! It is truly God’s own plan for spacing babies, his plan for the natural spacing of births.
I am amazed at the silence on birth control today by the Catholic media and by bishops when they are being interviewed. It’s popular for bishops or influential Catholics to be asked questions about same-sex marriage, Catholic pro-choice politicians, immigration, homosexuality, etc., but rarely is the subject of birth control a topic.
Some natural family planning teachers ignore the Lactational Amenorrhea Method except for the first 56 postpartum days, and almost all of them ignore the best way to space babies via ecological breastfeeding. All engaged and married couples should be taught all their options: all the fertility signs and their rules, the Lactational Amenorrhea Method and ecological breastfeeding. Eliminating the teaching of the Seven Standards of Ecological Breastfeeding is an injustice to those couples.
