FDA Citizenís Petition on Birth Control: Shocking Stories of How Women Are Getting Hurt
Natural Womanhood ^ | September 20, 2019 | Madeleine Coyne

Posted on 09/22/2019 7:58:23 PM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

Earlier this summer, a Citizen’s Petition was filed to the FDA requesting greater transparency concerning the many evidence-based health risks and side effects of different forms of hormonal contraceptives. We at Natural Womanhood published a breakdown of the FDA petition into a more digestible format in order to explain the forms of contraception discussed in the petition, the research behind it, and the overall goals and potential changes if this petition is successfully received.

Ultimately, the goal of the Citizen’s Petition is to compel the Food and Drug Administration to better inform all prescribers and consumers of hormonal birth control of its possible (and even likely) evidence-based health risks, whether in the form of a pill, patch, implant, shot, IUD, or vaginal ring.

If the petition is accepted, the FDA would make necessary changes on labeling of hormonal contraceptive prescriptions that adequately convey the possible risks and adverse effects on women’s health for consumers. Many medical professionals rely on the FDA’s labels to disclose all of the known health risks to their patients; thus, the labeling standards must be improved and updated to meet the needs of both the prescribers and consumers. In addition, this petition would remove one of the worst culprits from the market: Depo Provera (DMPA), an injectable contraceptive that is still (shockingly) on the market, despite its severe, proven health risks. Many of the people who have commented on the Citizen’s Petition have specifically shared their stories with Depo Provera.

Surgical abortions are just the tip of the hellish iceberg for these forms of chemical abortifacient warfare against women and the unborn. When you give Depo Provera to a man it’s called chemical castration.

The Pill induces a B-6 deficiency after regular use, according to my research. This has long=term consequences, including weight gain.

(I have seen it happen to women I have known.)

You cannot mess with God’s Natural Law without incurring penalties.

People have been conditioned to think that drugs are wonderful. They are not.

In order to be patentable, they have to be altered from a natural substance. This reduces their effects more powerful, and reduces the body’s ability to remove them. That is why liver damage, and liver failure, are frequent side effects of medicinal drug use.

Follow the money. Big Medic and Big Pharma make money when you are sick, and when you stay sick.

Except for certain antibiotics versus certain non-viruses, drugs generally never cure anything; that is why they have to be taken indefinitely.

The research presented in damning and there is no alternative but to ban all types of hormonal birth control.

Yep, it’s as if “the pill” and other hormonal birth control, has really encouraged promiscuity.

There was another thread here recently, about changing social morals and behavior due to the wide acceptance of birth control.

There have always been people who were into sex outside of marriage. But a key difference is, back in the old days, there was social pressure to get married if a pregnancy resulted. The old “shotgun weddings” just don’t happen anymore, as we as a society have institutionalized single motherhood, and attach no stigma or shame to that anymore.

Thread from earlier today: is it too late to undo what the birth control pill has done?

Most of your opinion is true. If we could find something that would decrease the disease process AND worked without side effects that would be great. Hopefully people would put in the same money and time and research necessary for the FDA to approve whatever is proposed as a treatment as a drug company has to put up. Until then all we get is anecdotes testifying to the efeectiveness of this or that with no rigorous scientific analysis. Hey if it worked for auntie Millie...that dont mean it gonna work for me.

Ultimately some guy will realize that the ladies lying on their backs is a normal desire just like the guy lying on top of them. Self Control is better than pills, but pills are easier...until you die from them.
