Real Talk about NFP

Danielle Bean

This week we are getting real about NFP (Natural Family Planning).

If you are unfamiliar with NFP, here are some basic resources for you:

Catholic Teaching on Love and Sexuality
On Birth Control, from Catholic Answers
Helpful Links to some different resources/methods of NFP

Here is a link to the column I wrote for Crisis Magazine on the topic of NFP a few years ago:

5 Ways I Don’t Love Natural Family Planning

My main points, which I discuss in this week’s show, are:

1) NFP does not work well for everyone.
2) NFP is not mandatory.
3) Have we no shame?
4) It’s only information.
5) Temperament matters.

Please share your ideas and feedback with me about this week’s show topic!
