What You Need To Know:
BIRTH CONTROL: HOW DID WE GET HERE? presents the truth and the blessing of God’s Creation mandate. It reveals the evil history of birth control and its destructive impact on the church, religion, and family, especially poor and minority families. Like any documentary, there are many talking heads. A movie should show, not tell. Therefore, the movie is more didactic than necessary. Also, the music sometimes strains to sustain the viewer’s interest. As it is, however, BIRTH CONTROL: HOW DID WE GET HERE? does reveal a truth everyone needs to learn.
(CCC, BBB) Very strong Christian, moral worldview refuting Margaret Sanger and the Communists, socialists, and others who have attacked faith and family; and, nothing objectionable.
BIRTH CONTROL: HOW DID WE GET HERE? is a documentary that presents the truth and the blessing of God’s Creation mandate. It reveals the nefarious history of birth control, and its destructive impact on the church, religion, and family.
The movie opens by noting that up until the 20th Century the church took seriously the Creation mandate in Genesis to be fruitful and multiply, and, therefore, prospered. Families are the Gospel in action. Then, the movie asks, how did we get to this place in history where society has turned against its future?
In a fascinating expose, the movie traces the impact of Margaret Sanger, the neo-fascist founder of Planned Parenthood, from her early years of rebellion through her sexual feminism to her full-fledged Communist commitments where she notes she is vehemently Anti-Christian and anti-capitalism. Slowly but surely, Sanger re-defined the issues, playing upon the lust of the eyes and the lust of the flesh, and turned the world from family friendly to self-destruction.
In this regard, this movie is must watching. The fall first of the Anglican Church and finally the evangelicals, the fall of the courts and the government, and the destruction of Christian, western culture is carefully revealed.
Like any documentary, there are too many talking heads; whereas a movie should show, not tell. Therefore, the movie is more didactic than necessary. Also, the music sometimes strains too much to sustain the viewer’s interest.
It would have also been nice to have some of those who have been most hurt by Margaret Sanger, the African Americans who have been devastated by her genocidal eugenics, to voice their position. As it is, however, BIRTH CONTROL: HOW DID WE GET HERE? does an important job of revealing a truth that everyone needs to learn.
