Another Reason to Not Use Artificial Contraception: "Rainbow Trout"
When one starts to understand the unitive and creative nature of the marriage act as explained by JP2 in his Theology of the Body, the barriers to understanding artificial contraception start to fall. Recently, some Protestant theologians have begun to look at Humane Vitae and Evangelium Vitae and have started to question whether the contraceptive mentality is really such a good idea. (Al Mohler of Southern Baptist Seminary for one)
Well, if the theology doesn't grab you, maybe the environmental impact will. Scientists have known for years that estrogen in the sewer water from contracepting women has profound effects on the sexual development and fertility of water-dwelling creatures. Maybe, if the fertility of fish continues to drop and we start seeing more and more hermaphroditic fish, (brings new meaning to the name "rainbow trout") people will scratch their heads and wonder if there isn't something to this contraception business. Don't expect it to make headlines in the MSM. (Just like the way the epidemic of breast cancer in women since the use of oral contraceptives doesn't get noticed or reported)
