So it's hard to know who among the many hundreds of women entering the hospital are there for an abortion, and good news about lives changed through prayer is hard to come by. Still, local coordinator Julie Culshaw has always […]

Un-natural Selection: Birth Control Pills May Alter Choice of Partners

SHEFFIELD, UK, October 7, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Is it possible that the use of oral contraceptives is interfering with a woman's ability to choose, compete for and retain her preferred mate? A new paper published by Cell Press in the October issue of the journal Trends in Ecology and Evolution reviews emerging evidence suggesting that contraceptive methods which alter a woman's natural hormonal cycles may have an underappreciated impact on choice of partners for both women and men and, possibly, reproductive success. Human females are only fertile for a brief period during their menstrual cycle, just prior to ovulation. Many […]
