I have been very busy this week with the start up of Catholic Stand, and settling some issues at Ignitum Today, so I haven’t had much time to do any writing. A friend sent me this video and indicated that someone (I don’t know who?) claimed that the studies (I don’t know which?) were flawed.
In the video, contraception is connected to the rise in homosexual behavior, to death and illness in women (heart attack, high blood pressure, stroke), to an unknown number of early abortions because contraception causes the death of embryos, to increases in promiscuity and infidelity, and to a rise in abortions due to failed contraception.
It also debunks the overpopulation myth quite succinctly in a way that I have not seen before (using Texas). Then, the video discusses the decline of populations and cultures, an issue I rarely hear contraception proponents address. With unbalanced demographics that economically cannot sustain the economies, cultures and populations are dying. The video cites what some countries are doing, paying people to have children, to overcome the declining birth rates.
In the last half, there is a discussion about IVF and cloning, and how many humans are killed because of it, and then the video turns to one of my favorite subjects — how these behaviors lead man to see himself as just another animal, driven by animal wants and not human intelligence. “We’re contracepting ourselves out of existence.”
Thoughts? If you cite a study, please reference it or indicate the time stamp in the video. I am curious to know how people refute the claims in the video.
