Let the public be reminded that Planned Parenthood has been harassing pharmacists for 15 years or more, in an attempt to force the pro-lifers to dispense abortifacient drugs, with their efforts leading to success in a number of states. In fact, Planned Parenthood of Southwestern Ohio intervened directly in the employment lawsuitbetween this pharmacist and K Mart way back in 2001, in order to delay the inevitable outcome.
Planned Parenthood has been attacking pro-life health care professionals and Crisis Pregnancy Centersfor decades. Is there any reason that people should feel sympathy for the nation’s top abortion conglomerate, which kills babies and sells their body parts?
From Lifenews comes the announcement that Seattle school kids, from sixth grade up, can have an IUD or other form of long term birth control implanted without parental consent. Featured in the articles is (culturally diverse) Chief Sealth International High School, which began participating in this effort in 2010, but the program has since spread to other schools.
The chance of a life threatening adverse event from a IUD being caught in time is drastically reduced when a child is afraid to tell her parents that she has had one implanted by the government “Take Charge” (of your kids) program. Naturally it has planned parenthood written all over it.
It seems that Washington state has perceived an unethical “need” to control its minority populations. It has been doing so in an unethical way, by targeting free birth control in its minority urban neighborhoods. This is the natural consequence of allowing big government to coalesce.
This state provided birth control plan further takes matters out of the hands of parents.
A pair of Austrian scientists, Belinda Pletzer and Hubert Kerschbaum have published a provocative article in Frontiers of Neuroscience, asking for more research on the effects of hormonal birth control on the brain. Of particular interest are the social and behavioral effects of these hormones when used in younger patients whose brains are still undergoing major development and maturation.
The authors review some studies of feminizing or masculinizing hormone effects upon mood, verbal skills, spatial reasoning, behavior and mate selection, which collectively could have profound effects on social structures in the long term. They suggest that any behavioral studies be controlled for the use of hormones by study subjects. Changes in brain structure caused by the various types of estrogens and progestins used as birth control, vary with the the degree of androgenicity or estrogenicity, and with duration of usage. Changes in brain development in younger BC users may be more profound, with some expected to be irreversible.
Nexplanon, (etonogestrel) a progestin containing implant has been given to at least 3 10 year old girls by NHS trusts in the UK. They’ve also admitted to implanting the device into
an 11 year old, 53 12 year olds, 281 13 year olds, 3032 14 year olds and 6208 15 year olds. Yes, for the perverts at the NHS, making girls available for sex abuse is the way to go.
In addition, they are not concerned about what the implants can do to the kids. For example, the long term, progestin only class of BC is strongly associated with osteoporosis. Giving this drug to girls while their bones are still growing is therefore not a good idea.
If a girl becomes pregnant, the drug affects the developing human embryo or fetus. Progestin only birth control is also associated with increases in susceptibility to STDs. Etonongestrel is the active metabolite of desogestrel, which gained fame from thrombotic events in so many patients, and the ensuing class action law suits.
Ladies, the clinical trials of Nexplanon EXCLUDED those who weigh more than 130 percent of ideal weight, and this drug is associated with further weight gain.
Stuffing young girls full of progestins is the kind of perverted policy we have come to expect from government run health care programs.
You can head over to Mother Jonesif you want to watch the wailing and gnashing of teeth. Basically their author, Molly Redden, says that pro-lifers are conflating abortion and birth control, and want to ban both. It’s been fun to see the left finally admit (after years of being derided for their science illiteracy) that stopping implantation is a significant mechanism of birth control hormones.
Yours truly dropped the following comment. It’s an opportunity to inform leftists about the Plan B scam, and other problems with birth control hormones. Maybe it will stir the denizens of the left-cloud up a bit. You might want to join in the debate.
Unmentioned in this article is Ella (ulipristal acetate) the newly touted morning after pill which takes the place of Plan B, since the latter drug known to be ineffective for average sized American women. Ella is an analog of mifepristone (RU-486), and of course it shares the the same mechanisms of action.
The various mechanisms of birth control pills are not new. The only thing that has changed is that more people know about it, thanks to the coercive actions of employers and governments. The newer “development” is the religious belief that implantation confers a different status upon the growing human organism. Killing the human organism prior to implantation, according to this religion, is birth control, and after implantation, the act becomes worthy of the name, “abortion”.
This tired article pushes the meme that women are too incompetent to obtain their own birth control, and that Obama should provide it (with our money). One amusing fact is that Obama care provides only limited access, and many women are being forced to buy their preferred types of birth control hormones because their Obamacare does not “care” enough.
Meanwhile, women continue to troop through the hospitals with thromboembolic (blood clotting) events and various other untoward side effects of birth control hormones. They have been very tolerant of life threatening “medical care”, so this is all OK as far as the lefties are concerned.
Some day, women might get tired of routine chemical alterations to their bodies, and learn how to regulate their reproductive potential using natural, safer, more ethical, and more effective means.
Lifesite News has put up a little slide show of images showing how various types of birth control operate. Each image is taken from the pharmacology section of info that the drug manufacturers publish for health care providers. None of this information is new, and if you never heard it from your doctor or CNP………. well……
Part of birth control effectiveness is due to processes that occur AFTER fertilization.
You can learn about some more birth control at the Chemical Abortion page listed above.
Earlier this month news emerged claiming that the Catholic Bishops of Kenya protested the vaccine program of UNICEF and WHO because HCG was found in six tetanus vaccine samples. This was believed to represent an effort to sterilize women in that country.
A couple of weeks later, the story is being retracted with the claim that it has been proven that none of the vaccines contain HCG, and no sterilization efforts are taking place.
By no means does the evidence and opinion that is cited in this new article “prove” that the vaccine samples tested in Kenya and South Africa did not contain HCG, therefore the headline is inaccurate. The statement attributed to the CDC, that vaccine adjuvants would “inactivate” HCG, is not adequately established or explained. Entraining HCG so that it does not act upon target receptors does not mean that it could not stimulate the production of antibodies. Those are two separate things.
This vaccine sterilization story pops up, gets squashed back down, and then pops up again in a new place. It exemplifies the distrust of the UN and the U.S, population controllers, who seek to tell Brown people how many babies they can have.
One wonders which UN overlord is threatening to pull funding from the various organizations who have put forth this latest attempt to question the integrity of the UNICEF and WHO tetanus vaccine program……..
No matter the mechanism of population control, people in third world are going to be told to accept it or risk losing any other “humanitarian aid”.
Popping up in Kenya this time, is the old HCG in the tetanus vaccine trick. It has all the markers of previous suspected lacings of tetanus vaccines, given to pregnant women in Mexico in 1993, and the Philippines in 1994. In the latter case, HCG was actually found in vaccine samples, and antibodies to HCG were demonstrated in women who had received the vaccine. The antibodies to HCG bind to the natural hormone found in a woman’s body when she gets pregnant, and inhibit further support of the pregnancy. A miscarriage (spontaneous abortion) ensues.
The Catholic Bishops of Kenya, getting no cooperation from the government, obtained six samples of tetanus vaccine and had them tested at labs in Kenya and in South Africa. All six of them showed the presence of HCG. The Kenyan government persisted in denying that there could be any HCG in tetanus vaccines provided under the auspices of the World Health Organization and UNICEF. A press release from the Catholic Bishops of Kenya details the story, and two other articles are hosted by COGforlife.org, HERE.
Such misuse of vaccines is bound to increase mistrust by the public, and lead to the failure of legitimate programs for the prevention of disease in the future.
Maybe it’s the “climate change” (weather) that will bring about this latex shortage.
This is what NARAL predicts if Republican Cory Gardner (who wants to put birth control pills over the counter) wins his race in Colorado! Maybe this degree of inaccuracywill be enough insult to the intelligence of women to make them abandon the Democrats this election cycle.
