Is this a safe practice?

Would it be safe to have sex right after a period (like within 7 days), use spermicide, and the pull-out method to prevent pregnancy? So natural family planning, pull-out and spermicide.. Is that okay? So ovulation happens around the 14th, so the sperm shouldn't be alive by the time of ovulation, and the sperm should kill the little bit of sperm that may be in precum, right?

It isn't as safe as if you added a condom to the mix.  Right after a period is a great time to get pregnant, if you happen to be an early ovulator.  (A lot of women ovulate on day 8 or so.)  Why go to the trouble of using spermicide and especially pulling out (which is a very unnatural act in the middle of a climactic moment) when you could just use condoms and a condom-safe spermicide and finish the act closer to the way the body wants to do it?
