Deadly health risks for women: The unspoken side of the Obama birth control mandate

by Jenn Giroux

For far too long there has been an ominous silence across America on arguably the most controversial and devastating issue of the day -- birth control. As so often we see in history, oppression gives rise to courage and, no question, courage is exactly what we are seeing in Church leaders and layman alike in response to the Obama administration's recent birth control mandate and more recent unacceptable modifications.

The Birth Control Mandate has forced the issue of contraception to move from being the elephant in the room to center stage. Perhaps in time we will see that it was a hidden blessing for our country. For years pro-life organizations refused to discuss or take on this topic despite the fact that free access to birth control increases the number of surgical abortions[1][2]. Most people repeat over and over that birth control decreases the number of abortions. Nothing could be farther from the truth. In fact, today for every child born in the US, there are an estimated 2 children killed in the womb from both surgical and chemical, abortifacient drug abortions [3].

In conjunction with the defense of both religious liberty and the spiritual well-being of women, we must also refute the absurd and deceptive statement that "women are healthier on birth control."

Providing free hormonal birth control to women under the guise of 'preventative services' and 'women's health' is a lie and women of all faiths deserve to know the truth.

Hormonal birth control methods can enter the body in various ways. These ways include 'The Pill' (by mouth), the Mirena IUD (Intrauterine Device), the implant (placed under the skin), 'the Patch' (absorbed through the skin), and the Vaginal Nuvaring. There are many other estrogen-progestin name brands that can be added to this list. Any way you name it, these hormone drugs dispense poison into a woman's body....
