TNL Productions: A Christian worker, his family and a nurse friend investigate throughout North America to uncover the truth about the birth control pill.

Family physician stops prescribing all forms of hormonal contraception.
I am a family physician in Canada and a follower of Jesus Christ. I was recently given a copy of Does the Birth Control Pill cause Abortions?

“The Pill” is the popular term for more than forty different commercially available oral contraceptives. In medicine, they are commonly referred to as BCPs (birth control pills) or OCs (oral contraceptives).
