Another World AIDS Day passed on December 1. Some of you may be wondering what on earth can the Billings Ovulation Method® (BOM) do to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS?
Dr John J Billings alluded to how the Method could help in ‘The Story of God’s Providence’ paper given at a BOM National Conference in April 2000: “Dr Sr Leonie McSweeney in Nigeria is telling us how her active teaching program strongly implemented by repeated courses on the national television circuit have established large numbers of couples on the method. The resulting influence upon the conjugal relationship is demonstrably protecting this group of couples from the high rate of infection with the AIDS virus evident within the wider community.”
The “demonstrable” protection he spoke of was based on the beauty of the BOM in assisting couples in their relationships. Fidelity is key to lowering the AIDS epidemic.
