Chicago, Sept. 14—”Contrary to popular belief, contraception is not the answer to reducing the number of abortions,” said Joseph M. Scheidler, National Director of the Chicago-based Pro-Life Action League.
On September 22 and 23, the Pro-Life Action League will host a national conference to highlight the fact that the contraception theory is a lie. Speakers at the two day conference, entitled “Contraception Is Not the Answer,” will focus on the impact that contraception has had on our culture—its effects on women, on men, on marriage, and on the culture.
Presenters include Dr. Lionel Tiger, the Charles Darwin Chair of Anthropology at Rutgers University, Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, author of Smart Sex, How to Find Life-Long Love in a Hook-Up World, and demographer Andrew Pollard, director of EMP Intelligence Service in Northampton, England.
“Contraception Is Not the Answer” opens Friday, September 22 at 6:00 p.m. at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Rosemont, IL, with a presentation on the failure of “comprehensive” sex education programs, and an analysis of the Protestant embrace of contraception in the twentieth century.
A press conference will be held Saturday, September 23 at 8:00 a.m. in Ballroom One of the Crowne Plaza, prior to the presentations scheduled for the day. Dr. Allan Carlson, president of the Howard Center, Dr. Janet Smith, professor of theology at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit, Damon Clarke Owens, director of Joy-Filled Marriage, and Fr. Thomas Euteneuer, president of Human Life International, will join Dr. Tiger, Dr. Morse and Prof. Pollard to answer questions from the media.
“I believe this is exactly the right time to confront the common misconceptions about the effects of contraception,” said Scheidler. “This conference will prove to be historic.”
