Rhythm method kills more embryos than any other contraception

Controversial rhythm method study revealed:

A British study suggests the Roman Catholic Church-approved “rhythm method” may kill more embryos than other methods of contraception.

It’s believed the method works by preventing conception from occurring. But Professor Luc Bovens of the London School of Economics says it may owe much of its success to the fact that embryos conceived on the fringes of the fertile period are less viable than those conceived toward the middle.

Bovens says it can be calculated that two to three embryos will have died every time the rhythm method results in a pregnancy.

So, let’s see how many people can follow this through to the logical conclusion: the way to save the most embryos is through comprehensive sex education and available contraceptives.

No doubt the religious right will be adopting to this new information and reversing their stance immediately, since their primary concern is saving the lives of embryos.
