Contraceptive Microchip article
About a year and a half ago, our family adopted a dog who happens to have been micro-chipped. I’ve thought about that being under her skin – how that must feel – if she feels anything. I’m not sure how I feel about it. I get that it would help us to locate her if she got lost. That would be good, I suppose. She’s a dog, however, not a human.
I am GREATLY disturbed by the thought of micro-chipping human beings for various reasons. I tried to find a credible article about a rumor I had heard stating that European babies were going to be required to be micro-chipped in the near future. Some websites said it was a rumor – a hoax. My fear is that it is close to the truth – if it is not happening already. If micro-chipping human beings comes to pass, we will be able to be controlled and kept track of on so many levels – even more so than is already happening through cell phones, credit cards and technology. Scary, Scary stuff!
On the evening news last night, there was a story about a new contraceptive microchip that is being developed with the encouragement/help of Bill Gates. It can prevent pregnancy for up to 16 years. When a woman decides that she wants to become pregnant, she can simply go to her doctor. The doctor will scan the chip, deactivating it, and she’s all set to go!
I suppose there will be many women who will think this is great – an improvement – an ADVANCE in women’s healthcare. Please! Women have been reduced to objects by the whole birth control mentality. Women and men are free to be used “simply” for pleasure. People think that they have been set free by birth control, when they have really become more unfree and unhappy than ever. Statistics show that adultery and divorce rates have steadily gone up with the invention of artificial birth control methods.
Natural Family Planning is so beautiful and very, very effective. It helps couples space their children as well as achieve pregnancy. It requires both the man and woman to take responsibility and to put the needs of the other before his/her own. It requires the virtues of patience, honesty & temperance – all virtues that help love to grow, not to diminish. Most of all, it honors God’s plan for marriage and family. It works with the body and the fertility cycle that God created. It invites God into the bedroom and family planning instead of locking Him selfishly out.
You know, when we choose to do things our own way because we think it’s better, or because of fear, we miss out on experiencing God’s Will for us. When we surrender to God’s plan for our lives, what we receive is something infinitely better than we could have ever imagined. Can He be trusted with something as important as our fertility? Absolutely!
