The Big Lie

I want to thank my friend Josephine for sharing this article.
At least one Catholic doctor believes that the reason American society is obsessed with the contraceptive pill is because it has been brainwashed by big pharmaceutical companies. These companies have been successful in pushing their agenda into America’s medical schools. Doctors now prescribe the pill not only to prevent pregnancy but also to treat many gynecological problems. Unfortunately, the pill treats only the symptoms, not the underlying conditions, this natural planning doctor contends...

...Martin said she is also concerned about couples with infertility problems. “Most infertile couples are never properly diagnosed. They are simply told their best chance of having a baby is in vitro fertilization (IVF). IVF is not only prohibitively expensive, very invasive, and not covered by most insurances, but it is also morally suspect,” she said.

Because of her Catholic faith teaching, Martin does not believe that physicians should insert themselves into the creative act. She believes that is exactly “what doctors do when they separate the marital act from fertilization by IVF and other assisted reproductive technology (ART). I respect the marital act. I’m not going to intrude on that,” she said.

That's true.
For many couples, there's a simple solution to their infertility. It's just a paid to figure out what it is.
But doctors push IVF instead of doing their jobs and diagnosing the problem.
