Why do women continue to voluntarily poison themselves?

Many of the dangers of the pill are listed on the package insert.  The statistics are startling:
  • According to the Journal of American Medicine, using birth control doubles one’s risk of stroke.
  • According to the National Cancer Institute one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their lives.
  • The National Cancer Institute estimates that in 2010, 39,840 women will die of breast cancer.  The institute also estimates that in 2010, 207,090 will be diagnosed with breast cancer.
  • According to the Mayo Clinic Research, if a woman uses hormonal contraception for at least four years before her first full-term pregnancy she is at a 52% greater risk for developing breast cancer.
  • According to the International Agency of Research on Cancer, if a woman uses a hormonal contraceptive for more than five years, she becomes four times more likely to develop cervical cancer.
  • According to the National Cancer Institute, black women, who are between the ages of 20 and 50, are twice as likely to die of breast cancer as white women with the disease.  This is because black women are more vulnerable to “triple-negative” cancers which are more deadly.
  • Breast cancer has increased 660 percent since 1973.  At the conference, Dr. Angela Lanfranchi(breast cancer surgeon) linked this increase with the use of hormonal contraception.
Defenders of the pill like to retort that hormonal contraceptives can lower the risk of ovarian and endometrial cancer.  But comparatively few women get endometrial and ovarian cancer to begin with compared to the one in eight who will get breast cancer.  The numbers are far from an even exchange.

Hormonal contraception is a carcinogenic and potent drug.  High doses of these drugs are needed to mimic pregnancy in the body and thus prevent pregnancy.  It’s not normal for the body to function with such high levels of these hormones, especially over a prolonged period of time spanning many years.

When I was 16 in the late 70's I suffered from severe menstrual bleeding, to the point where I had 15-20 day long periods with very heavy flow, and severe anemia where I was hospitalized on several occasions. Low-dose birth control pills was the solution back then....I was on them until my early 20's when my body finally calmed down and began to self-regulate. They also helped to alleviate my very severe acne as opposed to the steroids and shots that was the other option at the time. It wasn't until my 40's that my acne problems started to subside. and stress markedly affects my menstrual cycle...The few times I tried NFP just to educate myself and see what it was about I discovered my cycle was never consistant. I could probably sneeze and have a miscarriage...

thanks for the informative posts...

Yes, I know there are a some women who have used birth control in a medical capacity. I understand , I have 7 daughters and I'm not without compassion for women and their issues but the majority of the time the pill is and was used to prevent the birth of children.

I think about all of the men out there who push their wives into taking the pill or the mothers who give it to their daughters and In some of these instances the pill isn't really taken by a woman by her own free will.

I really do think that God considers your intent. I think about Nimrod who's intent was to kill God though we know how silly of an idea that really was, God acted upon Nimrods intentions and not upon what Nimrod actually accomplish.

Your intentions weren't to offend God by usurping his will with your own but you were simply trying to feel better.

My older family members have been told to take this pill for arthritis and this pill for that and blah, blah, blah from their doctors who act like drug pushers and with my relatives consent they had become the experimental generation - human guinea pigs.

Why is it that there are so many abortions each year when many women are on the pill? How can it be both? - just wondering out loud.

There is a belligerent attitude from doctors who have tried to push me and others like me into taking the pill on several occasions. Catholic nurses with an ax to grind are the worse when the doctor leaves the room.

They belittle their patients who couldn't possibly know as much as they do and then when your non- compliant your dismissed as a fool.

There isn't as much free will in this issue as one would assume.

I once had a doctor attempt to prescribe pills to one of our daughters behind my back and she isn't or wasn't even sexually active. I thought that was like giving her permission.... I'm still holding a grudge.

Thank you Red. You and five other people like my blog - five outta 6 billion people AND those five don't include my family. hahahaha

People hate these birth control posts. Especicially Catholics.

Though if I were worried about my blog numbers I would never post this kind of thing but since I couldn't give a rat's a... - Well nevermind.

But I often wonder about what God thinks of me :| Sometimes I think,"I'm in trouble."
