Meet Dr. Rebecca Peck, a pro-life physician in Ormond Beach, FL who is in a family practice with her husband, Dr. Benjamin Peck.
Dr. Peck who admits that she was conceived from a rape is grateful to her mother for giving her life. She has over time developed a strong sense of how precious life is and the need to protect it. You can see her testimony on Pro-Life is Pro-Love.
Dr. Peck is an example of someone who believes that life is precious and that fertility is a gift from God. She and her husband have 6 children and she practices what she preaches. She is an NFP instructor in the Marquette Method and has an NFP-only practice. She has an Instructional Video on the Marquette Method of NFP. Her patients know that she does not prescribe artificial contraception because of her religious conviction and because it is bad medicine to prescribe Class I carcinogens to thwart one’s God-given fertility.
Dr. Peck speaks out at pro-life rallies and whenever the occasion presents itself to defend life. One of her talks is at Stand Up For Religious Freedom Rally. Besides speaking out at rallies about pro-life issues, Dr. Peck has also written articles that have been published on forums and in peer-reviewed journals.
Some of Dr. Peck’s publications include:
- Over the Counter Contraceptives are BAD for Women’s Health
- Plan B’s Main Mechanism of Action: The Case for a Post-Fertilization Effect: Symposium on Plan B: Part III (of VI)
- Significant Risks of Oral Contraceptives (OCPs): Why This Drug Class Should Not Be Included in a Preventive Care Mandate published in the Linacre Quarterly, Feb., 2012.

Dr Peck doesn’t prescribe Class I carcinogens when there are several natural, efficacious methods of monitoring one’s fertility, which are completely safe, without harmful side effects, and which are in accordance with the Catholic faith.
Thanks Dr. Rebecca Peck for your beautiful witness and commitment to life!
