Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ – Birth Control Decisions

Another installment of giving better answers to the questions asked at Debi Pearl’s site message board for the book ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’. Many young ladies ask questions on all sorts of different subjects brought up by the book. There was just one big problem, many of the answers stray into either the outright bad and emotionally unhealthy to dangerous. Yes, typical Debi Pearl borderline abusive. Here’s what we’re going to be doing here at NLQ. Every week, once or twice a week, I’ll be posting up one of the questions from the message board and ask you, our readers, to answer that poor soul’s question in a way that is logical, OKrational and the best possible solution, in other words … [Read more...]

A Plea to My Millennial Sisters: Channel Your ‘Inner Suffragette’ to Keep the Doors From Swinging Backwards For Your Daughters and Theirs…

by Emily Nielson Jones of Christian Patriarchal Watch List For Parents - From her Linkedin post used with permission. "But our position on women in leadership is really not a major issue.  It’s just a minor issue to us, not a core matter of faith.”  (a representative of a popular Ivy League campus ministry speaking about their “complementarian” organizational structure which limits top leadership positions to men) Have you too heard this familiar refrain?  Or said something along these lines?Do you ever have this palpable sense that history isn’t just some distant set of events that you read about in a history book but rather feels very real and present?  That was my day yesterday.  T … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Any Suppression of Your Fertility is Wrong?

by Tamara Rajakariar from MercatorNet and as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Do Women Need to Have Periods?Editor's note: This bit was said by a fertility 'practitioner' practicing in Australia.  Not a medical doctor. It is my understanding that with issues related to your period one of the first things that physicians tend to try to ease the problems are hormone-based birth control pills. Which is exactly the opposite of what this expert is saying you need to do. How exactly is using birth control to ease problems with your cycle causing women to be more masculine? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Porn & Birth Control go Hand in Hand?

by Scott Matthew Dix from Ladies Against Feminism - Birth Control, Abortion and ObscenityEditor's note: Because this is a LAF quote there's nothing backing up the statement that these three subjects are linked, just a statement without factual evidence. No link to where they found this. No context for the quote. Take that as you will.  … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Never Miss an Opportunity to Muslim-Bash While Being Anti-Birth Control?

by Vaughn Ohlman from True Love Doesn't Wait - Eight Leaps of IllogicRemember a few days ago when we posted a bit from Conservative Christians debunking the Quiverfull movement? Vaughn Ohlman has taken it upon himself to dispute every single point of that list, one by one.But while he's doing that his racism is clearly on display. In the wake of Ferguson and other tragedies born out of racism can we afford to be racist in a country built by many different races, including Arabs and African Americans? This seems particularly cruel, evil and ignorant on the eve of a holiday celebrating giving thanks for the blessings of our nation, a nation founded on immigration and the idea of a … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: From Choices to Choice?

Meme posted at Ladies Against Feminism - From Choices to ChoiceDon't quite understand how adding the choice of abortion narrows your life choices or leads to eugenics (they tagged this post under 'eugenics'). What do you think? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Media Hiding Birth Control Truth?

by Meghan McNally from Ladies Against Feminism and the Catholic Vote - A New Cancer Study - And The Media Can't Handle The TruthOn August 1, a cancer study, published in The Journal of Cancer Research and conducted by the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, stated that there is evidence that the link between oral contraceptives and breast cancer may in fact be greater than previous studies had indicated. Since the study was first published, there has been a flurry of activity as some writers more eager to defend birth control than to educate women are tripping over themselves and the available data to assure their reading public that the study is, in fact, insignificant.  With Dou … [Read more...]

Hormonal Therapy, Medical Treatment and Birth Control

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The DragonsOn Monday, Rachel Held Evans ran “Why I Use Birth Control,” which featured my story with ten other women. What I wrote for her focused on the fact that I use the NuvaRing to manage my PCOS/endo and painful periods. I focused on that part of my story for a few reasons; first, it’s the only reason I’ve really had to use the NuvaRing up until recently, and second because the time in my life when I couldn’t afford it and had a cyst rupture was extremely relevant to what’s happening with the Hobby Lobby decision. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Birth Control Industry Saves Insurance Companies From Paying For All Those Pesky Babies?

Ladies Against Feminism is putting a completely different spin on the recent Supreme Court Hobby Lobby Decision by quoting Mercator Net. Their claim is that the main reason insurance companies cover birth control is because it's cheaper than pay for a baby.As quoted at Ladies Against Feminism - If anyone thought the controversy over Obamacare’s contraceptive mandate finished with the Supreme Court’s decision it’s time to think again. Over the past months the battle has been framed as conscience rights versus contraceptive rights. Now that conscience has won the first fight on points, a second round could be fought over money. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Birth Control is THE DEVIL!!!

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - The Line of Demarkation (sic, Nancy lacks spelling skills too) To which kingdom do you belong? God's kingdom is a kingdom of life, love, light, and liberty. Satan's kingdom is one of lies, deception, death, and destruction. He is a murderer! That's what Jesus said in John 8:44, "He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth; because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie he speaketh of his own; for he is a liar, and the father of it."Because he is a murderer, no wonder he is the mastermind behind birth control, sterilization, and abortion. His plan is to stamp out life before it is conceived, but abort it if it is c … [Read more...]
