by Zsuzanna Anderson from Are They All Yours?? – Q & A Answers Part One
Editor’s note: So apparently even if your life is at risk by having another child it’s still sinful to practice any form of birth control in the world of IFB gospel according to Zsuzsanna Anderson. Even just abstaining from sex is not done. Interesting that Zsu and Michelle Duggar have such different interpretations of ‘Defrauding’
Since you are against hormonal birth control, I was wondering how you felt about Natural Family Planning? My husband and I are trying for our first baby together (I have two from a previous marriage), and we’re charting and watching fertility signs to know the best times for conception. My second child was born by an emergency C-section when his umbilical cord prolapsed, and most likely I’ll have to have a repeat, due to the incision I had to have, so more children might not be in the cards for me. I’m not willing to go on hormonal birth control, but at the same time, I want the option for more children to be there, just in case.
I am against NFP for several reasons. For starters, the Bible tells us not to defraud our spouses except with consent for a season that we may give ourselves to prayer and fasting. Since I would not like to fast close to a week or more each month, I would not regularly ask my husband to go on a marital fast for that long, either. Secondly, the fertile phase in a woman’s cycle is typically also the one during which she desires and enjoys relations the most – it would be incredibly harmful to make this the time where acting upon these desires is not permitted.
