“Many will tell you that the responsibility of being permanently faithful to one person is too great and that being open to life is too much of a burden. They say contraception brings with it freedom and life; however, we have found that it is in openness to God, to each other, and to new life that true freedom is obtained. This is what living Natural Family Planning (NFP) can help couples to experience.”

– Michael and Alysha

“Supported by science, experience has confirmed the educational value of Natural Family Planning in contributing to an integrated vision of sexuality, marriage and responsible procreation.”

Pope St. John Paul II, Address to Participants in a Course Sponsored by the Centre for Studies and Research on the Natural Regulation of Fertility, 1993
