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 use.
