Why oh why does it have to go from big pharma and taking a pill daily to supremely flaky?
Still, I applaud these Red Tent Sisters. For one, they got branding down (as the woman who sent me this link pointed out. Why call it the “Sympto-thermal method” or boring old “natural family planning” when you can go with “ecosex”? I feel like I’m in a mossy woodland already).
Secondly, the Red Tent Sisters are effectively promoting natural family planning but no one will ever point a finger and tell them they are moralizing. To my Catholic friends: All that’s needed is a wee rebranding and the better part of the GTA will be following NFP pronto.
Anyhoo: This truly is a more female-friendly form of birth control than The Pill, no matter what you call it. The hard part is when you hit on the abortion question with some of those who promote “Ecosex.” I do not know what position the Red Tent Sisters take, but forcibly removing the fetus through invasive surgery hardly qualifies as female-friendly, but some of them justify this. It’s a radical double standard.
