Reproductive Health Facility Anthony J. Caruso, MD
While concern about women’s “reproductive health” is usually coded language for easy access to abortion
and contraception, in reality it should just be medical care to facilitate reproduction and health. The Catholic
Church promotes this through support of Natural Family Planning and fertility treatments which do not
include immoral methods.
NFP requires no drugs, expensive treatments, or devices other than a thermometer; promotes partner bonding
through charting, communication, and periods of abstinence; does not affect future fertility; and can actually
be used to truly “plan parenthood”! Acceptable fertility treatments do not include artificial insemination,
IVF, sperm and egg donations, and surrogate mothers.
Downers Grove is blessed to have a new medical practice that promotes the Catholic vision of reproductive
health for women. Anthony J Caruso, MD and Robert C Lawler, MD have opened Downers Grove OB/GYN.
The office offers women a warm, supportive environment. The idea is to preserve women’s fertility when
they are young, follow them through the creation of their families, and offer a gentle means to ease into the
changes of life. They will not offer artificial contraception, support all means of NFP, no sterilization, no IVF
or Artificial insemination. The center is open to all people of all faiths, and seeks to develop an ongoing professional
relationship that stretches across the reproductive life span. Give them a call and make an appointment
