The Abortion-Contraception Connection

The use of contraceptive means to prevent conception was condemned by all the mainline Protestant Churches before 1930. It is still condemned by the Catholic Church.

  • It has been known since 1932 that oestrogens given to animals causes breast cancer.
  • Minor side effects include weight gain, migraines, depression and mood swings.
  • Major side effects include high blood pressure, blood clots, strokes, heart attacks, nonmalignant liver tumors, breast cancer and cervical cancer.
  • Abortion is used as 'backup' therapy when birth control methods fail.
  • The "Pill" was thought to offer the solution to over-population, unwanted pregnancies, abortion, child abuse and poverty and would help relationships.
  • Population is now in serious decline as pregnancies, abortion, child abuse and divorce rates soar.
The word "contraception" comes from two Latin words contra which means "opposed to," and concepto which means "conceive." Originally, "contraceptives" were used to prevent the union of the ovum (egg) and the sperm. An abortifacient is something taken to prevent the implantation of the early developing human being after conception has occurred.

Abortion advocates, family planning agencies and population control groups intentionally blur the line between contraceptives and abortifacients in order to promote the use of abortifacients, which are much more effective than contraceptives. Another reason for denying that contraceptives are abortifacient is to protect their availability if surgical abortions are ever outlawed once more.

Until 1930 when the Anglican Church permitted the use of contraceptives for "grave and serious reasons," all the mainline Protestant churches taught that the use of contraceptives was evil. Martin Luther considered it a sin "worse than adultery or incest."

The Catholic Church did not agree with the Anglican decision and on 31 December 1930, Pope Pius XI published a document Casti Connubii (On Chastity in Marriage) reaffirming the two purposes for marriage as found in the Bible: union and procreation (Genesis 1:28, 2:24; Malachi 2:15).

The Catholic position on contraception was reaffirmed in 1968 by Pope Paul VI in Humanae Vitae, and in 1995 by Pope John Paul II in Evangelium Vitae.

In the late 1950s "The Pill&" was created, a mix of female hormones that cause a chemical castration. Normal menstrual cycles and normal hoemone production ceases. Two days after the pills are stopped the fall in artificial hormones induces withdrawal bleeding. A woman on the pill does not have normal periods.

Progesterone and Oestrogen / Progestin and Estrogen
"There is a tendency to dismiss women"s various complaints as biased."

Dr. Ellen Grant, an early researcher in the harmful effects of the Pill and author of "The Bitter Pill, " believed that a safe "pill" could be developed by trying different hormone doses and combinations. Ten years later, she realized this was not true and stopped prescribing the "pill." By this time, world medical literature had reported nearly every known medical illness as a possible or definite side-effect.

Women are not informed that the "pill" carries risks and is abortifacient. Feminist Germaine Greer calls this deception, "incompatible with the respect due to women as human beings."

Cervical cancer
A 1992 study, in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, reported that women starting at an earlier age were at increased risk of cervical cancer compared with those starting later. The risk of cervical cancer was 50% greater for pill users.
Breast cancer
Breast cancer studies also came to the same conclusions. Since the breast tissue of young girls is still developing and is particularly sensitive to the over-stimulation from synthetic oestrogen, the earlier a woman uses the Pill the greater the risk not only of developing breast cancer but also large tumours and having a worse prognosis.

The BMJ (1989) reported that women, who used it before the age of 25, increase their relative risk of breast cancer by 50% and for women using it for six or more years, their risk was raised, significantly, to 320%. There is no doubt that progestin also stimulate breast tissue.
Blood clots
In the mid 70"s sales of the Pill dropped substantially when the alarm was raised about a Pill- blood clot connection. Pharmaceutical companies hurried to cut their losses and regain their market share. It was acknowledged that original Pill had too high a dose of synthetic oestrogen and progestin and the new generation lower-dose Pills with about 1/4 the oestrogen and 1/10 the progestin.
The birth control pill was originally developed with a high dose strength, with high side effects.
Abortifacient Birth Control
The abortifacient aspects of common contraceptives, including the "morning-after-pill," are not widely understood by the general public, even though they are fully disclosed in package inserts accompanying birth control pills and other contraceptives. No one knows how many abortions are caused by contraception each year, limited studies suggest than an average woman on low dose birth control pills may have a "silent abortion" every two to four months, but no one knows for sure.

The early pill trials in the 50s and 60s were also testing a "male" pill which successfully halted sperm production. Research demonstrated that men in test groups developed slight testicular softening. This was considered more serious than the deaths of several Puerto Rican women. So women have their hormones manipulated, instead of men.
Abortion as backup
Every birth control method has a failure rate. With the advent of the "Pill" people are having more sex more often. Studies have shown that women do not always use the "Pill" correctly and become more complacent over time. This is especially true for teenagers.

Planned Parenthood's abortion statistician Dr Christopher Tietze said that within ten years, 20 to 50 percent of pill users and a substantial majority of users of other methods may be expected to experience at least one repeat abortion.

These statistics are significant when one considers that one of the primary goals of school-based clinics is to distribute contraceptives and abortifacients to teenagers without parental knowledge or consent.

If pregnancy is a disease, as the contraceptive mentality implies, and birth control pills are medical treatment, then surgical abortion is the backup "therapy" needed to treat the disease of pregnancy when "conservative" medical methods fail.
A United Nations report warned that the world will soon be in a dangerous situation of overall population decline.
Governments can now use family planning programs for coercive purposes. This is clearly demonstrated by UN policies that will only give aid will to countries with active contraception and sterilization programs. A one-child policy is law in China as well as forced abortions.

If, "every child is a wanted child," as Planned Parenthood claims, child abuse should also be lowering. In fact, child abuse and neglect is seriously worsening. Read more here. In fact, the National Incidence Study of Child Abuse and Neglect found that child abuse and neglect is seriously worsening. Between 1986 and 1993 the number of reported neglect cases doubled.
