Molto Pazzo, But for the "Culture of Death" Mindset, Yes Normal

Pope Paul VI warned us about contraception & the damage it would do to our culture. Fr. Paul Marx OSB, founder of HLI warned us of the connection between abortion & contraception. Fr. Marx pointed out time after time how contraception openned the door to abortion.
The "culture of death" doesn't the truth about contraception to get out. Why would it want to advertise how well it spreads death & destruction to those who use it. Normally, I am not a big fan of those latenight ads from law firms looking for people to sue drug companies etc. But in 1 case, they are actually doing some good. I am refering to those firms that are looking for people to sue Bayer because of Yaz/Yasmin's side effects that are talked about below. Obviously I am not endorsing the greed that is the real reason behind many of these lawsuits. But the message it tells about covering up the truth about Yaz may get some people who otherwise might not be aware of the reality of how dangerous to women the Pill in its various forms really is. & that isn't even talking about the unknown number of unborn babies that the Pill caused to be aborted.

“Crazy is the New Normal”?
by Jenn Giroux

Who would have ever guessed that contraception would move center stage in the women’s health and the political arena in 2010? Last week the New York Post reported that a “Wicked” actress sued Bayer pharmaceutical company claiming the popular birth control Yaz caused her to have a stroke at age 27. According to the US Drug Watchdog the serious side effects of birth control pills such as Yaz and Yasmin are potentially putting millions of women at risk for stroke, heart attack and even death. Also woman who have used the pill are now showing up in their 30’s with breast cancer (prior to the pill breast cancer was a post-menopausal women’s disease). Next time you are at the pharmacy ask for the insert information inside the very box that is provided to the consumer when they purchase a contraceptive. On NuvaRing’s website (a common contraceptive) risks associated with the drug include blood clots, strokes, heart attacks, high blood pressure, heart disease, gallbladder disease, liver tumors, and cancer of the reproductive organs and breasts.
How many doctors are telling women who go in for contraceptives these stunning statistics? Women who use hormonal contraceptives for a minimum of 4 years prior to their first full term pregnancy have a 52% higher risk of developing breast cancer (Mayo Clinic Proceedings). Women who use a hormonal contraceptive for more then 5 yrs are 4 times more likely to develop cervical cancer (International Agency of Research on Cancer). Instead many doctors convince married and single woman to go on contraceptives when they go into the office.
Natural Family Planning (NFP) is a highly reliable form of not only spacing children but helping couples to conceive. Recent studies have shown it to be 99% effective. It’s amazing more doctors aren’t encouraging their patients to effectively use NFP that has no risks associated.
Now—-as the undeniable medical evidence mounts which confirms the damage contraceptives have and continue to do to women’s health one may ask why for years mainstream and even pro-life organizations have ignored this. In addition, it has been revealed that our elected official are trying to force our tax dollars to pay for birth control under “preventative” medicine that tax payers and insurers will be forced to pay under the Affordable Care Act. It is time that every pro-life organization stands up and resist with all our might. Not only are these contraceptives damaging to women’s health, but these class A-1 carcinogens are also causing chemical abortions (in excess of 250 million since the 1960′s). For every U.S. child born an estimated 2 children are killed in the womb from surgical abortion and abortifacient contraceptives (National Center for Health Statistics Division of CDC, 2003; International Pharmacists for Life, 2003). It’s clear that it is time for expansive and comprehensive education against contraception use. The very life and health of women and the country depend on it. As we watch this all play out it is easy to think that “Crazy is the New Normal”…….sex outside of marriage, doctors prescribing class A1 carcinogens and women, through hormonal contraceptives, chemically aborting possibly one baby every month.
That’s definitely CRAZY. But it will never be normal.
