The World Contraception Day task force together with Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals have conducted a survey showing that more kids are having sex without birth control and condoms in France, the U.S. and the U.K.
They fault a barrier to unbiased information about contraception as the cause.
Why is this ridiculous? Just a sampling:
The source of the survey comes from those who sell birth control.
The products are misbranded as contraceptives, which the public defines as preventing fertilization. Unfortunately drugs classed as contraceptives have multiple mechanisms, some of which are frankly abortive.
These groups who promote sex among teens are complaining that kids don’t feel EMPOWERED enough to ask for contraception or negotiate such use with their partners. Yes, young girls often don’t feel that they have the upper hand when coping with older man who want sex.
It is proposed that the government will confer such empowerment upon the kids. (Don’t hold your breath for an end to sex slavery, and other socially maladaptive behavior.)
An example of ‘ harmful myths’ is given: people in ” Thailand and India believe that having sex during menstruation is an effective form of contraception”. FACT: this is an element of the calendar method, which would be more effective than the abysmal morning after pills, if actually used. Unfortunately both methods are more than useless for preventing STDs.
Don’t expect unbiased contraceptive advise from the makers of Yaz (black box warning for DVT and stroke) and Mirena (drug eluting, indwelling, coat hanger).
