I have recently found out that I will be struggling with Infertility due to Polycystic ovary syndrome. As i try to find out more and more about infertility I am constantly bombarded by the religious in one way or another. If its not the websites saying how god helped them through their infertility, its them telling me that god made us special and unique. I would just like to be able to find a place that didn't say god would heal me if I believed and be able to talk to others who are going through the same thing with out having god inserted into the conversation.

That must be incredibly difficult to deal with when people bring religion into a challenge that you are already working so hard on.
I have found something that kinda helps. I have been reaching out trying to unite all the women of atheism i can find. So that they may be able to freely go from one site to another and find each other easily. Agnostic/Atheist Women

There are enough of us out there just not united
God doesn't exist. God has nothing to do with biology. We are masses of cells and things can go awry. It's nobody's "plan," and that also doesn't make it anyone's fault-- not even yours. Living things are not perfect and we are all different. Maybe not a one of us (atheist women, I mean) has dealt with infertility, or maybe some of us have. I'd like to think that even if we can't exactly know what you are going through, that we would support you as best we can all the same.

There should be atheist support groups of all types, don't you think? Imagine the hell of an atheist trying to get sober from an addiction and their only option is a traditional 12-step program. I think sometimes that theists particularly enjoy preying on the weak for conversions. "Suzie joined the church and got clean. Isn't it amazing what happens when you put your faith in Jesus?" How about teaching people to put their faith in themselves? Imagine how empowering sobriety would be then!

I'm sorry for the rambling, but I just really agree with you. Perhaps you could start a group here on Think Atheist. Who knows what could happen?
