Physicians Healed

Cleta Hartman
One More Soul

This publication, an inspiration for those interested in Natural Family Planning (NFP), contains personal, inspiring, and compelling stories of 15 physicians who do not prescribe contraception.

Whether or not you believe that birth control pills cause induced abortion, you support the use of NFP (also known as the CREIGHTON MODEL FertilityCare System), or you are Catholic, you can benefit from this book, which seeks to inspire physicians who wish to change their practices due to personal or professional beliefs and standards. It contains personal testimonials from principled people who have struggled and triumphed with change. Many of these physicians are obstetricians and/or gynecologists. Each changed his or her medical practice and has been overwhelmingly supported by patients and peers. As a reviewer commented (reproduced on the book’s back cover), “Good morals make for good medicine.”
