Is NFP "contraception lite"?

If it is abused, YES!

Does NFP have to be "contraception lite"? No. Is it, often, yes.

Does NFP come from, or lead to a contraceptive mentality? Not necessarily, but the way it is sold in diocesan pre-Cana programs is this:

you've heard about contraception, so we want to give you a moral way to do it.....

and sometimes the result is a proper evaluation of the moral situation and an increase in communication between the spouses -- to say nothing of a focus on understanding the human body more intimately.
