Tell the CDC to report accurate data on the Creighton Model!

Join us in requesting that the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) update its website to reflect the best data available and to cite the individual effectiveness rate of each unique type of evidence-based natural method of birth regulation (also referred to as FABM).  The CDC's  website currently reports that the combined typical “failure rate” for all FABMs  is 24%.
Outrageous! This rate misrepresents the actual effectiveness of individual modern FABMs.
The number 24%  comes from a retrospective survey based on patient recall, a flawed methodology which is less likely to report accurate success rates.
Women and medical professionals deserve the truth.
