NFP Wars - Again
Last night I was speaking with my supervisor for Billings, as she was telling me about how the table at the fertility show went. Overall it sounds like it went well, except that at one point practitioners for another method of NFP came over and basically heckled the Billings instructors, telling them that Billings wasn't as good as their method and whatnot. OK, I get it, we all like our respective methods best - that's why we use and teach those methods over another, but once again, can't we see the merits in the other methods?! I can certainly see the merits in Creighton and Sympto-Thermal, even if I choose to use Billings and prefer that method for me. NFP isn't something that we should be fighting over, though. Isn't it better just to get the information out there for those who don't know about it? And then let them decide. Of course, it's also perfectly acceptable to just not use NFP and let nature take its course, or to use ecological breastfeeding in that way, etc. There is no one method of NFP that is morally superior to another, as far as I know, so we should be working together, not cutting each other down.
