At Last - Morally-Based OB/GYN Practices May Be on the Rise!

Tired of your doctor pooh-poohing your moral values? There may be a movement in the U.S. among Catholic medical professionals to provide services in conformity with their Church's teachings on birth control and sexuality.

Doctors who respect Natural Family Planning
PRLog - Sep. 28, 2012 - CHICAGO -- Arg-g-g-h! Fed up over not finding a pro-life OB/GYN?

For years, couples seeking maternal and pregnancy services that respect Christian morals have been frustrated. Now, they are beginning to find relief in at least some areas of the U.S.

There seems to be a small but growing trend across the country on the part of Catholic medical care professionals to offer reproductive services that conform to Catholic moral teaching, according to LifeSiteNews. One such group is the Culture of Life Family Services, in San Diego, CA.

Pro-life and Pro-family
There, the practice is pro-life and pro-family, and its services include regular medical care for all ages, from board-certified physicians, with certified nurses, as well as prenatal and crisis-pregnancy care. Natural family planning is also taught, following Catholic teaching.

Dr. George Delgado, the practice's medical director, told the National Catholic Register recently (http://www.ncregister.com/daily-news/health-care-with-a-c...) that they have "experienced quite a bit of growth on many fronts."

Delgado is an expert in health-care ethics and is certified by the National Catholic Bioethics Center. A pro-family approach there, for example, means that parents and their teenage daughters are talked to together with the health care professional, thus insuring that the family is involved.

It is known that many other doctors often insist on consulting with a teenage patient alone, and then make a pitch for the use of contraception, apart from the knowledge of parents.

"We encourage them to stay free of substances and also talk about chastity," Delgado said.

New Houston Medical Practice
There is a similar practice in Houston, TX. Married couples who believe in Catholic teaching in Humanae Vitae, which explains Catholic teaching on birth control, have not been served in twenty years with an OB/GYN who follows the principles of Catholic teaching on the matter.

A LifeSiteNews article (http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/good-news-for-women-as-m...) recently explained that there is a need for physicians who decline to do abortions, sterilizations, or prescribe contraception and infertility "treatments."

"The exciting news out of Houston reveals a positive trend that is slowly but steadily making its way through the United States," the article states. An energetic doctor, Kathryn Karges and her staff are launching this month the Caritas Complete Women's Care, an apostolate rooted in a deep respect for the dignity of women and the best of medical practices.

Both of these practices are part of the NaPro Technology movement, founded on the work of Dr. Thomas Hilgers, who has for years offered Natural Family Planning, and NaPro fertility treatment, which conforms to Catholic moral teaching.
