|Did you miss our national webcast Knowing Your Alternatives to Prescribing Contraceptives with Dr. Marguerite Duane?
Fertility is a normal, healthy physiologic state. Women’s hormonal cycles determine the fertile window when a couple will most likely conceive. An understanding of the cycle and recognition of the external signs that determine each phase has led to the development of more environmentally friendly and highly effective forms of family planning. Despite these advances, there is limited information about fertility awareness based methods (FABMs) being taught in medical school and residency and the majority of health professionals are trained to approach fertility as a disease state.
Dr. Marguerite Duane discussed all the options available to physicians when counseling patients on family planning options on our national webcast last week. Her discussion was very interactive with numerous medical professionals and medical students participating. If you missed it you can replay the webcast here.
Students for Life of America is assembling pro-life activists of all ages to engage in the multi-faceted Pro-Life Future (PLF) Campaign in 19 select cities across the nation. In each city, our goal is to directly reduce the abortion rate by increasing awareness of non-violent abortion alternatives, decreasing support for the predatory abortion industry, and changing hearts and minds about abortion. A big part of our plan to unify pro-life advocates in these cities is alerting the community about the dangers of the abortion industry by knocking on neighbors’ doors and starting conversations. We are thrilled to share with you our successes from our first month on the ground this March!
