A group of young filmmakers has produced a movie that argues
against Christian married couples using birth control.
Some Christian commentators claim birth control is only a
Catholic issue, but a North Carolina-based protestant Christian
film producer disagrees.
Kevin Peeples, director of The Birth
Control Movie Project, tells OneNewsNow that as a young married
couple practicing birth control, he and his wife were convicted to
stop using pregnancy-altering medicines like "the pill" after they
attended the Baby Conference in 2010. He hopes Birth Control:
How Did We Get Here? and its follow-up film will help others
come to that same conviction.
"We hope that viewers will approach the Bible and say what
does Scripture have to say on this issue? and not to approach
and say what do I want the Scriptures to say," Peeples
shares. "The Lord wants us to let him control what he created in
the first place."
The primary theme of Birth Control: Is It Up To Us?,
the sequel film to be released in 2013, explains how Christians
cannot be pro-life and pro-contraception.
"Look at how many times a couple has intercourse to how many
children they have -- it's really less than one percent," the
director notes. "So a lot of people attack us and push us with
you're asking for us to have so many kids that we can't provide for
and all of these things, but it's not like every single time you
have intercourse you get pregnant and you have a baby."
The World Congress of Families' (WCF) May 2012 meeting in
Sydney, Australia, will have a special showing of the movie, which
comes with a study guide intended for personal and small group
A Christian medical group is taking issue with a recommendation
for over-the-counter availability of birth-control pills.
