  • 16-Year-Old Girl Dies From Massive Blood Clot After Taking Birth Control Pill

    British court officials are investigating the death of a young teen who died on vacation last fall after developing a rare blood clot disorder from a birth control pill. The Daily Mail reports 16-year-old Sophie Murray was rushed to the hospital on Nov. 8, 2015, after her lips turned blue and she became breathless in the middle of the night. Murray died later that day from a pulmonary embolism due to deep vein thrombosis, according to the report. Doctors said the birth control prescription that she was taking contributed to her death. The news report has more about the inquest...
  • How MTV's "16 and Pregnant" Reduced Teen Pregnancy

    Conversable Economist blogspot ^ | 12/21/15 | Timothy Taylor
    Apparently MTV broadcasts a show called "16 and Pregnant," in which each show tracks a pregnant teen-ager through the final months of pregnancy, and then through birth and the immediate period afterward. Although I fear the show will remain unseen by me, it is apparently watched by enough teenagers that all by itself it put a dent in the US teen birth rate. Melissa S. Kearney and Phillip B. Levine tell the story in "Media Influences on Social Outcomes: The Impact of MTV's 16 and Pregnant on Teen Childbearing," in a recent issue of the American Economic Review (105:12,...
  • Influential Evangelical leader: The sexual revolution started with contraception

    December 18, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – One of the most influential evangelical Christian leaders in the United States says the sexual revolution began with the widespread availability of birth control. Dr. Albert Mohler, the president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, made the remarks Saturday on David Wheaton's "The Christian Worldview" radio show. “We are clearly at a very important turning point, but you have to go back to the early twentieth century when sexual revolutionaries largely funded an effort to separate sex and procreation, and that was birth control," Dr. Mohler said. "Most Christians seem to think today...
  • Ted Cruz: GOP isn't 'condom police'

    Iowans at a town hall waded into awkward territory on Monday evening as Ted Cruz tackled a question on contraceptives. During a question and answer session at the final stop of a three-day Iowa campaign swing, an attendee asked Cruz about "making contraception available to women who want to control their own bodies." The Texas senator began by attacking what he called the Democratic Party's "(concocted) war on women" and accused Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton of falsely attacking the GOP as "the condom police." "Hillary Clinton embraces abortion on demand in all circumstances up until the moment of birth. Partial-birth...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., October 16, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – A majority of states may soon use tax dollars to pay for the implantation of dangerous, abortion-inducing IUDs in women immediately after childbirth. The journal Contraception reports that Medicaid now pays for IUDs to be inserted into women following delivery in 19 states. Eight more states are poised to follow suit. Not one state used taxpayer money for IUDs before the Obama administration took office. Within 10 minutes of delivery, doctors are implanting either copper IUDs or chemical-releasing IUDs in women. But potential health complications for the mother are magnified when IUDs are...

    Planned Parenthood is less about women's health than it is about providing the last ditch form of birth control for those women who fail to practice adequate contraception. Unless rape is involved, the woman is in control of what happens in these situations. The so-called Women's Liberation Movement has essentially given license to women to be as sexually active as many men in this degenerating culture. If you need help conceptualizing or visualizing that, think the sleazy TV production Sex In The City. I forced myself to watch a few episodes just to be sure what I'm about to say...

    Due to an objection with an Affordable Care Act mandate that requires health insurance plans to offer base birth control, Wheaton College has announced that it will no longer offer health insurance to its students to avoid conflicting with the institution's Christian convictions. The decision, announced to its students on July 10, effectively strips about a quarter of the suburban Chicago non-denominational liberal arts school's undergraduate and graduate students of their health care plans, which is about 700-plus individuals. As one of the most contested aspects of Obamacare has been the requirement for health insurance plans to provide birth control...

    The federal government today released a new rule to ensure that women will have birth control coverage in their health insurance, even if they work for closely held for-profit companies that have a religious objection to contraception. The rule follows the Supreme Courts decision last year that Hobby Lobby and other closely held corporations could not be required to provide contraceptive coverage to their female employees, even though that coverage is guaranteed under the Affordable Care Act. Todays guidance is a positive development for women denied access to important healthcare in the troubling aftermath of the Hobby Lobby ruling, said...

    Washington Post ^ | July 8, 2015 | By Danielle Paquette
    American women are spending much less money on birth control since the Affordable Care Act started requiring insurance plans to cover contraception, according to a new analysis. Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania examined health insurance claims from one of the countrys largest private insurers in 2012 (pre-Obamacare) and 2013 (post-Obamacare). They found that spending on the pill, Americas most popular birth control method, quickly fell 38 percent -- from $33 to $20, on average. Spending on IUDs, meanwhile, plummeted 68 percent, from $262 to $84. The total savings, the health economists estimate: $1.4 billion.

    From mandates about what food children can eat to draconian attendance policies, its becoming increasingly clear that parental rights do not exist when you send your child to public school, as The Blazes Matt Walsh has argued before. But in Seattle, its even worse.

So, a young teen in Seattle can’t get a coke at her high school, but she can have a device implanted into her uterus, which can unknowingly kill her unborn child immediately after conception. Or, if she uses another method, she can increase her chances of health risks for...

It is hardly necessary to add any comments at all except to say how little things have changed.A leader from an association of Protestant mainline denominations called it “the most important encyclical ever promulgated in the entire history of the papal succession.” He said, “I am glad that this pronouncement is so thoroughly clear-cut and uncompromising.” He was glad that everyone had to be either for...

    The Obama administration on Monday ordered all insurers to provide IUDs, the contraceptive patch and other birth control free of out-of-pocket charge to all women, rewriting the rules after reports that some insurance carriers were refusing to cover all types of contraceptives. Insurers must cover at least one brand of contraception in each of 18 different methods outlined by the Food and Drug Administration, such as oral contraceptive pills, the emergency contraceptive morning-after pill and intrauterine devices. Insurers can in some cases still impose costs to prod women to use generics rather than brand-name drugs, under the new guidance ...

    Both in anecdotes and “exit polls,” former Catholics frequently cite the Church’s teachings on sexuality as a reason for leaving the Faith.

Converts have benefited from both the gift of the teaching as well as their entry into the Catholic Church.Krista Millegan is one such convert.

    We previously wrote about the deer sterilization program run by the Village of Cayuga Heights, NY, which borders the Cornell University campus and has large deer and faculty populations. After years of bitter debate, Cayuga Heights decided that the deer population would be controlled through sterilization at enormous expense: NY Town spends $2,984 per deer in sterilization programBecause Reproductive Health Care Is A Cervine Right The Cayuga Heights deer control was mostly a failure because, you know, deer move around, so sterilizing deer in Cayuga Heights didnt prevent new deer from coming into the area. And so on. As far...

    The obesity epidemic in men could be fueled by the female sex hormone estrogen, scientists claim. Experts believe the hormone could also be causing the well-documented drop in sperm count among Western men. They said men in affluent countries are becoming feminized as they come into contact with products containing the female sex hormone. Compounds found in some plastic items, including drain pipes, and soy food products can mimic the effects of estrogen, scientists said. Secreted by the ovaries in premenstrual women, estrogen is known to cause weight gain, inhibiting the thyroid gland and affecting other areas of the brain....
  • IUD best choice for underage girls: American Academy of Pediatrics

    The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has updated their policy guidelines (PDF) concerning contraceptives for children under 18, recommending that the first line of defense against pregnancy for adolescent girls should be implantable contraception such as an IUD or a sub-dermal hormonal implant. The AAP says that because young girls cannot be trusted to remain abstinent, reliably take a daily birth control pill, or use condoms, the best way to ensure they do not become pregnant is to fit them with a “long-acting reversible contraceptive” – a device that, once installed, will either provide a continuous dose of hormones designed...
  • War in the Gender Gap Evaporates

    The phony "war against women" has taken a strange and unexpected turn. Republican candidates are promoting expanded access to birth control, with contraceptives available over the counter. Democrats in varying shades of blue dismiss something they've always wanted as mere Republican politics. You would think Democrats would be grateful for enhanced access for women, a dream come true. This is the catch 22 of the 2014 campaign. Democrats and Planned Parenthood are obviously afraid that if Republicans get credit for this pip of an idea, they'll fall into the diminishing gender gap and never be heard again. The latest polls...
  • Pope Francis adviser hints at rethink on contraception ban

    The Telegraph ^ | 19 Sep 2014 | John Bingham
    A leading reformist Cardinal close to Pope Francis has hinted at the possibility of a reinterpretation of the Roman Catholic Churchs blanket ban on artificial contraception. Cardinal Walter Kasper said it was the responsibility of the parents to decide how many children they should have. He also said that so-called natural family planning, which is promoted by the Church as an alternative to contraception, also has an artificial element. His comments in an interview with The Tablet, the Catholic weekly, are likely to reopen debate about one of the most contentious areas of Catholic teaching just weeks before a special...
  • Notre Dame Retreats, Will Provide Contraceptive Coverage in Student Health Programs

    09/07/2014 10:25:49 AM PDT · by marshmallow · 28 replies
    The University of Notre Dame will provide for contraceptives and abortifacient drugs in its student health-care program, the National Catholic Register reports. Notre Dame had joined other Catholic institutions in filing suit against the contraceptive mandate in the federal health-care program. In that lawsuit, Notre Dame said that the mandate would "require Notre Dame to commit scandal." But after preliminary court rulings against the university-- which Notre Dame is now appealing-- the university administration has chosen to cover contraceptive costs.

    Painting the Catholic Church as "out of touch" is like shooting fish in a barrel, what with the funny hats and gilded churches. And nothing makes it easier than the Church's stance against contraception. Many people, (including our editor) are wondering why the Catholic Church doesn't just ditch this requirement. They note that most Catholics ignore it, and that most everyone else finds it divisive, or "out-dated." C'mon! It's the 21st century, they say! Don't they SEE that it's STUPID, they scream. Here's the thing, though: the Catholic Church is the world's biggest and oldest organization. It has buried all...

    Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Weston, the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, stopped at a Hobby Lobby store in her district on Wednesday not to pick up some craft supplies for one of her kids school projects, but to alert people to the stores existence and urge people not to shop there. I want people to know that this Hobby Lobby is here and they should vote with their purses and their pocketbooks, and women should not shop here. If you didnt know this Hobby Lobby was here before, know it now and dont shop here. They dont...

    [...]The constitutional right to be free from unlawful search and seizure is based on the psychological need to maintain control over personal information and behavior. The involuntary loss of privacy and dignity regarding sex is a central aspect of the psychopathology of American sex totalitarianism. And it has been inflicting itself on the American mind from the highest offices of government. Sexually oriented feminists can be divided into two generations. The central purpose of the first generation was to legalize abortion and normalize sex outside marriage. Gloria Steinem is still the leader of that generation. She, who is often seen...

    Recent reports announcing the era of remote-control contraception herald the very real but slightly horrifying prospects for the future for those who believe that man can literally transform himself into a machine. This phenomenon is known as the cult of transhumanism. One news report calls the remote dispensation of contraception “creepy.” Another explains how this may come to fruition: “A challenge from Bill Gates two years ago has put science on the cusp of a revolutionary, remote-controlled method of birth control.” Technology Review says the wireless implant, if approved for safety and efficacy, could make it possible for a woman to turn her birth control on and...

    The bogus lies about contraception bans and limits on access to birth control are here to stay folks, just as I predicted in my new book Assault and Flattery: The Truth About the Left and Their War on Women. It's past time to push back with force. The Not My Boss Business Act, a bill developed by Democrats to combat the Supreme Courts recent Hobby Lobby decision, has failed in the Senate. As a result, mass panic among government control freaks has commenced. Who's panicking this time? DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. She just can't believe women might have to...
