Indy pro-life doctor to speak on birth control and Catholic teaching on Feb. 20

Faith-based family practitioner Dr. Casey Delcoco is the featured speaker at a pro-life event called “Candid Conversation about Birth Control and Catholic Teaching” at the Archbishop Edward T. O’Meara Catholic Center, 1400 N. Meridian St., in Indianapolis, starting at 6 p.m. on Feb. 20.

A light dinner will be served before the lecture begins at 6:30 p.m.

Delcoco, a member of St. John the Evangelist Parish in Indianapolis, started Magnificat Family Medicine in honor of the Blessed Mother. The mission of her Indianapolis practice is to provide holistic care upholding the dignity of men, women and children. She also cares for patients in crisis pregnancy alongside the Gabriel Project and Women’s Care Center in Indianapolis.

In addition to earning her medical degree, Delcoco completed a medical fellowship in the Creighton Model of FertilityCare and Natural Procreative (NaPro) Technology from the Pope Paul VI Institute in Omaha, Neb. She does not prescribe birth control in her medical practice for faith and medical reasons that will be discussed during her presentation.

The event is sponsored by the archdiocesan Office of Human Life and Dignity, and St. John the Evangelist and Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary parishes, both in Indianapolis.

There is no charge to attend, although freewill offerings will be accepted.
