A Health Care Thought-Experiment
Just imagine if there were a morning after pill to rid ourselves of the eating and drinking we consumed the night before. We could wake up, take a pill, and somehow everything we took in over the previous 24 hours was regurgitated (or defecated) and never counted in our caloric intake. We could create clinics in every town to regurgitate when necessary. Or, better yet, what if there were a pill that we could take each day which would make all that we eat bypass absorption in our small intestine. We could continue to eat and drink everything we want and most calories would never count.
Granted, there would be some health side effects. Our body was not meant to regurgitate what it consumes, nor was food intended simply to pass through our digestive system like riders down a water slide. There would be an increase in cancer risk, and the danger that our digestive system may never work right would increase.
But we would be free to truly eat as we wish. Food prudes who would dare suggest that the better course might be controlling the food and drink we consume at the outset would be called unrealistic, unworldly and naïve as to the way in which human beings normally live. And naysayers who would try to prevent us from choosing this way to eat and drink would be viewed as Neolithic bigots who are denying our rights to do with our bodies what we wish.
Sounds ludicrous, doesn’t it? Yet, ladies, this is what we do to your reproductive system each time we take hormonal birth control or have a fetus aborted.
Pregnacy is Not Abnormal
Pregnancy is not a sickness. It is a natural process caused as a result of sexual intercourse. Calling an abortion “health care” is the same as saying that self-purging (making one’s self vomit) is a form of dieting. This is merely a game of semantics to make abortion and hormonal birth control appear to be normal and “healthy.”
But it is not. It is an abnormal, serious (and in the case of abortion, violent) interference with the natural operation of a women’s reproductive system. Studies have shown that these methods of “health care” cause the mal-absorption of most vitamins and increases the risk of breast cancer, stroke, and, especially with abortion, suicidal depression.
In 2005, the World Health Organization officially classified oral contraceptives as Group I carcinogens (Group I being the most dangerous from Groups I-IV). A year later, a comprehensive meta-analysis published in the Mayo Clinic Proceedings, noted that 21 out of 23 studies found an increased risk of developing premenopausal breast cancer women who had taken the Pill prior to the birth of their first child. Overall this group of women experienced a 44% increased risk in developing breast cancer prior to age 50.
Today, breast cancer will strike 1 of 8 women. A data analysis published in the Oxford Journals Annals of Oncology stated that, since 1960, the incidence of breast cancer among women in industrialized nations has increased 2 – 3 % each year. It is not coincidental that this increase coincides with the introduction and dissemination of hormonal birth control.
The Real “War Against Women”
How ironic that the same women who are encouraged to eat organic food, wear natural fibers, and walk 10,000 steps, are encouraged to ingest cancer-inducing hormones and undergo fetal homicide (let’s call it what it is) to reverse and prevent the natural operation of their reproductive systems, and we are calling it freedom, a civil right and health care.
The real “war against women” has been waged for the past forty years by the pushers of hormonal birth control and fetal homicide. They have been laughing all the way to the bank, while we have been fooling ourselves. And saddest of all, we women have been the butt of this cruel joke.
