“Birth Control: How Did We Get Here?” is a Christian conservative movie that was released in 2013, but was recently unearthed and found to include some bizarre claims (video below).
The advocacy flick regrets the decriminalization of contraception in the U.S., notes RightWingWatch.org, which the film refers to as "the lifestyle of child prevention."
Lila Rose, a Christian pro-life advocate who has campaigned against Planned Parenthood for years, says in the film:
There was a time when birth control was unthinkable and contraceptives were unthinkable because people who married, a beautiful part of marriage was the hope for children together.

Of course, people who have children also use birth control during other periods of their lives; the two are not mutually exclusive.
"Birth control would be any man-made attempt to avoid the blessing of children," adds Dr. R.C. Sproul Jr., who was suspended by Ligonier Ministries in August 2015 after he admitted to checking out the adultery website AshleyMadison.com, noted Christianity Today.
Rose states in another clip:
A lot of people then kind of see it as something that will assist sexual behavior, assist sexual activity, when really it's something that is going to, ultimately, and has led to in many ways, abortion in our country.
The Associated Press reported in July 2015 that abortions have declined in most states in since 2010, which has been attributed to restricting abortion access (in conservative states) and increasing the availability of birth control.
In another clip in the 2013 film (video below), Rose said that Planned Parenthood is “encouraging sexual activity and experimentation at young ages."
They encourage young girls, young women, to go on hormonal contraceptives, like the birth control pill.
What happens then is more and more sexual behavior is played out among unmarried young people and contraceptives are used, but there's, of course, the failure rate.
There's a lot of teen pregnancy, there's a lot of pregnancy for young single mothers in their 20s.
And so what they do then is they turn to Planned Parenthood, again, who is, not coincidentally the biggest abortion chain, and then they go there and are buying, purchasing $500, $800, $1200, $2000 abortions to resolve the sexual activity that was started and encouraged by Planned Parenthood in the first place.
The Associated Press reported in 2008: "Half of the roughly 1.2 million U.S. women who have abortions each year are 25 or older. Only about 17 percent are teens. About 60 percent have given birth to least one child prior to getting an abortion."
