Dear fellow teachers and Billings Ovulation Method® practitioners and fans,
Now that school is back in session and the dizzying heat will soon subside, allowing our brains to reorient and our schedules to find a nice groove again, I want to write you a letter of encouragement. You are truly making the world a better place by continuing to share this incredible knowledge that was gifted to us by God through the work of Drs. John & Evelyn Billings.
Last year I was lucky enough to participate in the making and release of the film by Springtime Productions Sexual Revolution: 50 Years Since Humanae Vitae. The team travelled all the way to Australia and New Zealand to meet the adult children of John and Evelyn Billings. And we also interviewed Marian Corkill, Gillian Barker, and the enduring disciples of the groundbreaking scientists that gave us modern NFP. Also in the film are Abby Johnson, Mary Eberstadt, Steven Mosher, and Professors Janet Smith, Peter Kreeft, Robert P. George, Mark Regnerus, Helen Alvaré, Angela Franks, and Brad Wilcox. Drs. Marguerite Duane from FACTS, Pilar Vigil, Joe Santamaria, Day Gardner, and Fr. Tad Pacholczyk from the National Catholic Bioethics Center all make appearances, as well as Mother Teresa’s former assistant Sr. Hannah, MC.
In short, Sexual Revolution has achieved something very special by collecting and immortalizing the voices of the most important thought leaders in the counter revolution to the 1960s’ failed experiment that was thrust upon us by Margaret Sanger and her horrible Pill.
Many of you are aware of the predictions that Pope Paul VI made when he wrote his prophetic encyclical Humanae Vitae. He described a world in which men lost all respect for women—and today we are all aware of the #MeToo Movement and crimes like those committed by Jeffrey Epstein. We now live in a world where so few have self-control regarding their sexuality that somehow human slavery has become justifiable in the minds of many.
But we have the antidote. It’s called Natural Family Planning, and we’re not afraid to use it!
We believe that where sin abounds, grace abounds all the more, which is what drove us to make the film in the first place. Experts interviewed in the film describe the now-confirmed predictions of Paul VI in significant detail. You need to hear what Steven Mosher from the Population Research Institute has to say about his work in China and the one child policy there. John Billings also describes the horrors he witnessed in India during their forced sterilization programs in his personal diary, which we were granted exclusive access for inclusion in the film.
Sexual Revolution is a strong tool for Billings Ovulation Method® instructors specifically. Many of you might not know that all modern FABMs are based on the research of John & Evelyn Billings and that we teach the original NFP method as perfected by the Billingses. Sexual Revolution profiles John & Evelyn’s journey, contrasted with profiles of Margaret Sanger and Dr. Gregory Pincus who gave us the Pill.
If you want a tool that will help you pull in new students, or something that will demonstrate without a doubt why NFP is important and why the Pill is evil and broken, we have done all the hard work for you in this beautiful documentary. All you need to do is hand your pastor a DVD or organize a screening of the film in your community. DVDs are now for sale right here on the BOMA-USA website. All proceeds support BOMA and administrative efforts. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in organizing a public screening. A license is not only very affordable; it can boost your visibility as an NFP teacher and community resource on this topic significantly.
I want to thank BOMA for their endorsement of the film. I know that many of us have come to be passionate about this method because we’ve witnessed firsthand the destruction caused by the sexual revolution of the 1960s—myself included—and I am so proud of you for showing up and trying your hardest to do something about it. The work you do is valuable. The work you do calls forth new eternal souls destined for sainthood. The work you do heals wounds, both relational and clinical, and even though I may not know you personally, you have my full admiration for continuing the legacy of Popes John Paul II and Paul VI and Drs. John & Evelyn Billings. May God bless you as you continue to fulfill your calling.
