One More Soul Canada is a non-profit Canadian apostolate dedicated to teaching the world about the blessings of children, the value of chastity, and the harms of contraception.
We offer a variety of educational resources, including audio talks, dvds, pamphlets, and books for sale online or in person where invited. One More Soul operates out of Saskatchewan, Canada.
We understand that contraception is spiritually harmful. Contraception is against God’s will as can be determined from human nature, the Bible, and the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. On July 25, 1968, Pope Paul VI issued the Encyclical Letter Humanae Vitae, which upheld the consistent teaching of the Church based on natural law as well as divine revelation: "Each and every marriage act must remain open to the transmission of life" (No. 11).
We believe that contraception is firmly linked to abortion, and that the massive abortion industry would not exist were it not for today’s contraceptive mindset. We recognize that contraception not only encourages extramarital sex, but also makes it plausible.
Contraception separates conception from intercourse so perversely that people forget that having sex makes babies. When a child is conceived, that child is not the anticipated end-result of sex, but an unexpected problem. That problem is all too often solved by abortion.
“…contraception is…so profoundly unlawful as never to be, for any reason, justified. To think or to say the contrary is equal to maintaining that in human life situations may arise in which it is lawful not to recognize God as God.” – John Paul II
We understand that, sadly, many people who use contraception are not aware (and have never been informed) of the consequences of their choice. We believe that every child is a supreme gift, no matter what the circumstances of his or her conception. We know there can be some very painful circumstances surrounding pregnancy. However, we believe, as it says in Psalm 127, “Children are a gift from God.” We have no doubt that the most generous and loving statement any persons could make is, “We will lovingly accept all the children God gives us.”
We understand that parenting is a tremendous opportunity for salvation, and a considerable challenge. We endorse natural family planning methods for helping to achieve or avoid pregnancy when “just and serious” reasons make it necessary. NFP methods have proven worldwide to be safe and effective (over 99%), which is comparable to any of the artificial methods of contraception, without any of the health hazards. Also NFP will often increase communication and produce harmony within marriage.
One More Soul operates as a mail/phone/electronic order apostolate and as a clearinghouse for information and resources. We offer the best CDs and DVDs, books, and pamphlets available on the effects of contraception and the blessings of children.
We also network with NFP groups all across the nation with the goal of uniting them with this cause.
We encourage donations for our materials and for extending our apostolate.
Our most popular and powerful resource is a presentation titled “Contraception: Why Not?” by Professor Janet E. Smith, Ph.D., on cd or dvd.
Professor Smith teaches at the Archdiocese of Detroit’s Sacred Heart Major Seminary, is a Consultor to the Pontifical Council For the Family, and has spoken to audiences all over the world on the topic of contraception. In her logical, witty, non-judgmental way, she explains clearly what the Catholic Church teaches and why. While not neglecting figures and statistics, she uses common sense, and many personal anecdotes to make the presentation universally enjoyable and enlightening.
