CANFP Physician Experts

Question

Hi there all you wonderful experts. This is the very first time I’ve taken the time to go to this “Ask the Experts” Wow!! What a wonderful service!!
My question: A very good pro-life friend of mine (who has nine beautiful children)states her son-in-law, a physician, (who is prolife and won’t do abortions or birth control pill prescriptions) works with other ob/gyns and THEY ask him, when they are not in the office, to do some procedures—like work w/ sperm cells to keep them alive for invitro-fertilization later. He rightfully feels uncomfortable doing this (his well-formed conscience!). I suggested the book, Physicians Healed, edited by Cleta Hartman from One More Soul.

Do you know where this physician can get in touch with any of these doctors? If they have accessible emails, to encourage this young doctor?? Thank you sooo much. I teach N.F.P. and would like to know the answer myself.

Dear Leslie,

I am happy you discovered our Ask the Experts section! It is indeed an amazing database of information, that is an excellent resource of information for many of our questions, as teachers, physicians, or just people concerned about their procreative health! Our experts have been most generous in sharing their wisdom, knowledge, and experience!

We also have a Directory on our site of NFP Professionals in California, including physicians. This would be a resource for your physician friend. In fact, if he is a California physician, invite him to become a member of CANFP and be listed as well! The Directory is online at www.canfp.org

For a list of national physicians who would be a good source of information and support, One More Soul puts out a Directory of Pro-Life Physicians. This can be found online at their site at www.omsoul.com

Hope that helps, and thanks for contacting Ask the Experts at the California Association of Natural Family Planning!

Content is faith based or secular, whichever is suitable for situation.

CANFP offers a variety of resources for those just discovering Natural Family Planning, as well as to meet the varied needs of our CANFP Members. Most resources are available to any visitors to our site. Some resources do ask you to register as a site user in order to access them, others are available only to CANFP Members.

CANFP statewide conferences, regional events offered in collaboration with local partners, events featuring CANFP speakers, or exhbit, as well as other events throughout the state of interest to our NFP community.  Come meet one of our experts at one of these events or book a speaker for your own upcoming event.
