How we are succeeding in reversing the catastrophic effects of man-made sterility, through simple knowledge of the procreative gift bestowed upon us by God, is becoming a revolutionary victory for the Catholic Church.
From time immemorial, the crucial human problem related to childbearing has been the problem of sterility, which in all ancient societies was considered an obstacle to be overcome, a tragic affliction, and even a “curse.” However, this modern age is utterly unique in human history, because of its relentless celebration of everything that is unnatural and because it uses every means to stop the possibility of becoming pro-creators with God of a new human life.
The world is already paying a heavy price for allowing such distorted tendencies, as it is now suffering a “demographic winter.”
Our age invests scandalous amounts of time, energy, and resources inventing ways to convince couples how not to conceive a child. This they do through dangerous chemicals and devices in birth control methods, sterilization of men and women, and aborting newly conceived human life. The main perpetrators are the pharmaceutical companies and the unscrupulous physicians who know the damage they cause by disrupting the normal functions of the human body, so perfectly and delicately designed by our Creator.
This has rebounded as a curse to many couples who now plead for help for what they once rejected. Future generations may look back on our era with disdain for having defied the laws of God and having caused endless physical, moral, and spiritual chaos to their lives and society at large.

The Voice From The Heart

Nevertheless, the desire to have children remains deeply embedded in the human heart and essential to the vocation of every married couple, who even late in life realize that something precious is missing in their married life.
It is to this grave problem of infertility that we have dedicated so much of our time and effort. In 2010 we started a new study to prove to the medical profession that they do not need to rely on dangerous chemicals to artificially force ovulation in women, or to give them powerful steroid hormones to manipulate their cycles, or request expensive procedures that a majority of couples cannot afford. But so many of them are blinded by the so-called advances of medicine and technology, that even the well-intentioned physicians find it difficult to rely solely on nature, basic logic, and true science.

Essential Component
To Attain Life

One of the most significant accomplishments of the last century in the field of human procreation has been the discovery of a new, natural way of understanding our gift of fertility through what we now call: The Ovulation Method. This method teaches women to be aware of the unique properties of a natural secretion produced periodically throughout the woman’s procreative years. Not only does the presence of this secretion signal fertility, it is essential for the nourishment and survival of the sperm for conception to occur.
Most women do not know that they are only fertile for approximately 100 hours in every cycle during their procreative years and the days decline as she ages. For couples having difficulty conceiving, the same information can be used to recognize the optimum days or sometimes hours of fertility when conception is most likely to occur.
As we discover how beautifully created and delicately designed are the functions that govern a couple’s ability to conceive, we found through our studies that it enhances the intimacy of the matrimonial vows and deepens the love of the husband and wife. Similarly, the spouses find that, as they understand and accept the woman’s short phase of fertility which requires only a few days of abstinence per cycle, a properly formed Catholic conscience will help them postpone pregnancy when it is absolutely necessary.
Even the poor and illiterate have been able to space their children with a 99 percent success rate among the poorest of the poor, as Mother Teresa’s study in Calcutta reported in the British Medical Journal as far back as September 18, 1993. Consequently, people won’t be so foolish in the future to endanger their lives with such dangerous steroid chemicals and abortifacients, when a more effective and natural alternative exists which is free of charge.
Furthermore, the couple’s acceptance of the laws of nature that pertain to the wondrous gift of procreation has proven to enhance the spouses’ love and communication as they cooperate with nature for the sake of the physical and moral well-being of one another. In this way, the man and the woman accept responsibility for their combined fertility.

Jesus’ Teaching —
Our Inspiration

As modern science has given us the tools to discover the mysterious functions of the procreative organs within the human body, we are now able to comment on our experience in helping couples who have been having difficulty conceiving a child. We are specifically referring to the incredible success obtained among low-income married couples who are financially unable to obtain highly sophisticated medical services. In essence, the method we teach is applicable to any couple in any culture that honestly seeks to achieve pregnancy through a proper understanding of nature’s ways.
Our inspiration emanates from the example of our Lord during His years in public life. He gave us constant reminders of His love for the poor. He cured them, fed them, taught them, and we could even say that He gave them preferential treatment insofar as kindness and generosity are concerned. It stands to reason that God in His wisdom would not have ignored the cry of the poor as they also encounter difficulties conceiving children. The poor cannot afford the expensive tests and highly sophisticated medical services that are commonly done on women in affluent societies to try to restore their fertility.
Would God require couples to take extensive academic courses on knowledge that is already ingrained in their own bodies? Inspired by the wisdom of the teachings of our Holy Mother Church, and her special love for the underprivileged, we carry out our mission to help married couples of every cultural level. Many of our teachers around the world have been successful helping couples conceive a baby, but a thorough study on its success had never been conducted or reported.
Our recent study began in January 2010 and our last report was up to January 2013. It consisted of 54 couples who had been unable to conceive in anywhere from one to 12 years. With the grace of God and our humble teachers, we accomplished results unheard of in the medical literature. Forty-six of the 54 women succeeded in becoming pregnant. This gave our study an 85 percent success rate.
The couples succeeded after only two to 15 cycles from the time they took the class. If you request the complete study from our foundation, you will read that many of the women had complex medical histories, some of which were treated in the public hospitals where we work. The important aspect is to note that we never incorporated any chemicals or steroids to help women ovulate nor manipulated women’s cycles to help them conceive, as the ingestion of steroid hormones could have serious consequences for the health of the woman.
We only taught the natural method, the importance of good nutrition and supplementary vitamins which proved sufficient for success.
Those who became pregnant are so grateful to God for blessing them with the gift of life and to our teachers who provided this knowledge to them for free! We hope more independent studies will confirm our findings in order to help many more couples conceive children through simple and easy to learn signs of fertility that are found in nature and the human body itself.
For our team of teachers in urban and rural areas of Guatemala, where the study took place, it has been a lesson in humility and a revelation for humanity to realize that the answers to complex problems are often found within us, if only we listen, learn, and follow the instructions in human nature. Most solutions to infertility can be discovered without the need of dangerous chemicals or artificial insemination, which is contrary to the Natural and Moral Law.

Does God Have
A Sense Of Humor?

We have to believe that God must have a sense of humor, because our study, though small, is highly significant as it obtained the best results — the highest of any system being offered in the world today, and it did not cost couples anything! I strongly believe that, God willing, this simple knowledge will eventually be used by physicians worldwide. Those in the culture of death industry are dreading the day when this simple and very scientific knowledge becomes better known worldwide and their injurious and evil methods will come to an end.
Family of the Americas Foundation has been helping women and men understand human fertility and procreation for over four decades. Our mission has brought us to five continents and given us the privilege of speaking to tens of thousands of couples and professionals worldwide of the wonders of God’s miraculous work of creating human life. “Procreation” is sacred work in which God deigns to involve His creatures by bestowing upon them the gifts of both fertility and reason. It is our mission to educate men and women to use both in the service of life.

The “Poor In Spirit”
Will Guide Us

It has been our experience that the term “poor” doesn’t apply exclusively to those who have fewer economic means to support themselves. It also applies to anyone who has the humility to be open to God’s plan for fertility that is written into the very structure of the human body. “Blessed are the poor in spirit” (Matt. 5:3) are the opening words of the Sermon on the Mount and the Lord Jesus’ encouragement to all who seek to do God’s will.
Couples from low-income brackets, in rich and poor countries alike around the world, fall prey to the insatiable desire for higher profits by the pharmaceutical companies and their despicable practice of concealing information from the public on the serious side-effects of artificial methods of birth control and their abortifacient effect.
These companies, with the collaboration of unscrupulous physicians who have lost their true vocation of medicine, have become accomplices in destroying temporarily and often permanently women and men’s precious gift of fertility.
But let us keep a proper perspective about the true cause of these problems. The founder of the Pontifical Academy for Life, the late Professor Jerome Lejeune, once said:
“It is not medicine we should fear, but the folly of mankind. Every day, the experience of our predecessors increases our ability to change nature by using its own laws. But using this power wisely is what each generation must learn in its turn. We are certainly more powerful today than ever before, but we are no wiser: Technology is cumulative, wisdom is not.”
What we seek is to marshal the wisdom of the Church and of modern science in support of the most important work of parenting: God’s command to “be fruitful and multiply” (Gen. 1:28; 9:7). We are certainly not being fruitful nor multiplying at the present time except for Africa, which the Gates Foundation is trying to eliminate, unless we do something to stop it.
We live in such contradictory times, where technology claims to have the answer to every human problem, even if those ready-made answers militate against one another. For example, in the relentless anti-fertility campaigns of our day, couples pay or, if they are poor, are persuaded to have their gift of fertility destroyed in order to avoid what is termed the “burden” of childbearing.
Then, for convenience, timing, health, or other reasons, when couples get desperate and wish to have a child, they turn to the very institutions that eviscerated their fertility in the first place and are willing to pay any price to “restore” what they once rejected: the gift of human life.
Thus the business of buying and selling fertility through technology has cheapened the very concept of procreation and the inherent dignity of the child. It has further inculcated the contradictory attitudes of revulsion and entitlement toward children that betray the very essence of what a child is: a gift. Others, after having made many mistakes in the area of human sexuality, may feel a deep sense of self-reproach and feel wounded when their consciences finally awaken. Many repent of these mistakes and feel a strong desire to return to God’s laws.
It is not my intent to denigrate the legitimate, moral contributions of medical technology or to blame anyone who has made mistakes. Rather, our mission is to help couples get back to basics — that is, back to nature and God’s plan — in the area of human procreation. We have come to the firm conviction that God has provided all the means necessary in the human body and soul to solve most problems of infertility.
The problems of infertility can be conquered by accepting with humility that God created for us a short window of fertility that must be cherished and protected. These revelations are destined solely for the spouses who wish to live their lives in harmony with God’s laws for man and nature and who believe in life, believe in love that nurtures life and those families that nurture their children for the well-being of humanity, for that is where our future lies.
