Our government is subsidizing a national industry which routinely lies to women about the effects of birth control.

Planned Parenthood, pharmacies, pharmaceutical companies and “family planning” facilities receive hundreds of millions of our tax dollars yearly – yet they’re endangering the lives of women and young girls for political gain.

Thousands of pro-lifer in 19 states, Italy, Australia and the Honduras will participate in Protest the Pill Day ‘09: The Pill Kills Women. They will expose the tragic effects these chemicals have on women including heart disease, breast cancer and liver problems.

And they will demand an answer to a burning question too long ignored – why is our government subsidizing a corrupt birth control industry that leaches off the women they endanger?

But wait a minute according to a long term study conducted in Britain there is virtually no danger from the Pill.

CONCLUSIONS–These findings contain no significant evidence of any overall effect of oral contraceptive use on mortality. None the less, only small numbers of deaths occurred during the study period and a significant adverse (or beneficial) overall effect might emerge in the future. Interestingly, the mortality from circulatory disease associated with oral contraceptive use was substantially less than that found in the Royal College of General Practitioners study.

Contrast this with the findings of the National Centre for Health Statistics

The maternal mortality rate in the U.S. is the highest it has been in decades, according to statistics released this week by CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics, the AP/Washington Post reports. According to the figures, the U.S. maternal mortality rate was 13 deaths per 100,000 live births in 2004. The rate was 12 deaths per 100,000 live births in 2003 — the first year the maternal death rate was more than 10 since 1977 (Stobbe, AP/Washington Post, 8/24). A total of 540 women were reported to have died of maternal causes in 2004, 45 more than were reported in 2003, according to the report (NCHS report, 8/21).

Contrast that with 11 deaths directly connected to abortion

By using data from the National Pregnancy Mortality Surveillance System, CDC identified 22 maternal deaths for 2000 that were potentially related to abortion. These maternal deaths were identified either by an indication of abortion on the death certificate or from information such as a news report associated with the death. Investigation of these cases indicated that 11 of the 22 deaths in 2000 were related to legal induced abortion and none to illegal induced abortion (Table 19); eight deaths were attributable to spontaneous abortion (miscarriage), and three deaths were determined not to be abortion related. Numbers of deaths attributable to legal induced abortion were highest before the 1980s,

Why do ALL and other Pro-Lie organizations continue to fabricate dangers associated with women taking control of their own bodies? Why do they disregard the actual dangers associated with pregnancy and childbirth?

Because to do so would significantly interfere with their agenda to erode women’s rights. Note their concern for the children ends upon birth. Breath for most of us signifies the beginning of life. For the Pro-Lie crowd breath represents another brat in the world taking their share of the resources. This is the hypocrisy they refuse admit. While clamouring for more babies they are at the same time voting for policies which erode the resources that would provide those children with basic needs.

    It looks to me, from that manual, they are starting with the conviction that abortion: bad, no abortion:good and are trying to convince themselves there is a rational basis for it rather than describe how to influence anyone else.
