BIRTH CONTROL: How Did We Get Here?
The first of two films from The BIRTH CONTROL Movie Project, BIRTH CONTROL: How Did We Get Here? is a fast-paced, award-winning documentary that focuses on the history of birth control and it’s tragic impact on the church, marriage, and family.
During the 18th century, there was broad cultural agreement on the evils of obscenity, abortion, and birth control. Obscenity, birth control, and abortion all begin and end with the same attitude: recreation without procreation. They are parallel roads to the same destination. The battle for privacy in marriage waged in the 20th century and the practice of limiting family size took hold and those who were married lost their vision of multigenerational family life; children were no longer considered a blessing but rather a burden. Legalization of birth control inevitably led to a breakdown in the values of family, and thus opened the door for acceptance of the other two. From 1965 to 1973, birth control, pornography, and abortion were all given Constitutional protection over a mere 8 years.
Raising godly children is no longer viewed as marriage’s primary purpose. Instead, adults seek companionship, convenience, and physical gratification, overriding God’s purpose for marriage and blurring the lines between our God-given gender roles.
Featuring Dr. George Grant, Allan Carlson PhD., Geoffrey Botkin, Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr., Lila Rose, Kevin Swanson, and Julie Roys, follow the film’s chronological timeline from Creation to the late 20th-Century and learn how the modern church’s reinterpretation of Scripture and rejection of Church history has allowed child prevention to become acceptable biblical theology.
We live in a culture where there is no fundamental difference on the issue of child prevention between the church of Jesus Christ and unbelievers. The fruit of our contraceptive culture is rancid and many voices are calling for a restoration of the church. In order to effectively communicate the truth about birth control and it’s impact on the church, marriage, and family, we have to ask two questions; How Did We Get Here? and Is It Up to Us? The follow up film BIRTH CONTROL: Is It Up to Us? is coming soon in 2013.
