Once again we are subjected to total inanity in a Roundup guest comment. The old adage “If you keep repeating a lie, people will actually believe it” worked well for Ms. Bre Thomas in her guest comment in the Roundup when she said, “99 percent of women in the U.S. have used some form of contraception in their lifetime.” This propaganda started with Obama and has been passed down ad nauseum. Even the Washington Post and the Centers for Disease Control (a governmental agency) exposed it for the lie it is. Look up the real statistics. It in no way helps Ms. Thomas’ credibility.
Then there’s the incredible idea that contraception is good for women’s health. What Ms. Thomas completely leaves out is the fact that women have died from using contraception. Studies show some 12 million American women take the birth control pill and the Mayo Clinic warns that birth control use is one of the major contributing factors for pulmonary embolism and blood clots. Other serious side effects are heart attacks, strokes, pelvic inflammatory disease, depression, and so on. The World Health Organization has linked the pill with breast, cervical and liver cancer. Hormonal birth control is considered a class one carcinogen right alongside cigarettes in cancer-causing potential. Here we are going all out to eradicate the scourge of smoking, yet we are being told that birth control is safe and healthy. There are an estimated 25,000 lawsuits in the courts right now. In 2008, Johnson and Johnson spent $68.7 million to settle hundreds of lawsuits. In 2012, Bayer AG paid at least $100 million to settle some 500 lawsuits over injuries and deaths connected with the use of their line of birth control.
Then there’s the fact that the pill is also abortifacient in nature, making it a human pesticide. The so-called “safe and healthy” little pill destroys newly formed human beings. Dr. William Colliton, an obstetrician-gynecologist, wrote that more than 1.8 million lives are lost to contraceptives annually in the U.S., making it more deadly than procured abortion at 1.2 million.
Last and certainly not least is Obama’s blatant attack on religious freedom, where Christians and church-related groups are being forced to go against their consciences and religious beliefs to comply with Obama’s new laws, basically nullifying their First Amendment rights. Not one peep out of Ms. Thomas on this outrageous tactic either. Some may not care about this particular right being taken away and shrug it off as unimportant in the great scheme of things. That’s exactly what Obama wants you to think, Comrades, because when he comes to take away your other rights you will already be properly indoctrinated.
