In another post that someone else has written (since I’m still at a loss for words), check out this post on the problem with the birth control Pill. It’s written from a Catholic perspective, but I think good ol’ JP2 was right on this one. Here are some stastistics from the article on detrimental aspects of the Pill that are underreported by the media:
- A Mayo Clinic study said that 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.
- Women who use a hormonal contraceptive for more then 5 yrs are 4 times more likely to develop cervical cancer.
- Prior to the sexual revolution and “The Pill” there were known to be 5 sexually transmitted diseases: Today there are more than 30.
- There are over 50 medical studies which indicate that use of oral contraceptives and Depo-Provera place women at higher risk for almost all known risk factors of HIV.
