Birth Control Is NOT Controversial?

Chances are if you say something is NOT controversial it must be controversial. Otherwise what’s the point of saying it? Abortion groups and their supporters insist that contraception is as inconsequential as water.

You see, it can’t be controversial because it apparently has health benefits:

Apparently it’s so beneficial to women that it should be available everywhere at no cost.

The birth control industry, especially Planned Parenthood, has convinced naive women of the lie that preventing pregnancy is a health benefit. Here’s a reminder of the “health benefits” of combined hormonal birth control:

cerebral hemorrhage, cerebral thrombosis, melasma, migraine, loss of scalp hair, retinal thrombosis, change in corneal curvature, cataracts, thrombophlebitis and venous thrombosis, hypertension, mesenteric thrombosis, hemorrhagic eruption, arterial thromboembolism, pulmonary embolism, myocardial infarction, Budd-Chiari syndrome, hemolytic uremic syndrome, mental depression, nervousness, changes in libido, edema, change in weight, rash, pre-menstrual syndrome, hirsutism, erythema multiforme, erythema nodosum, porphyria, bone loss, breast cancer, uterine cancer, vaginal cancer, gallbladder disease, hepatic adenomas, nausea, vomiting, gastrointestinal symptoms, cholestatic jaundice, reduced tolerance to carbohydrates, changes in appetite, impaired renal function, colitis, hemolytic uremic syndrome, amenorrhea, vaginal candidiasis, vaginitis, increased risk of sexually transmitted diseases

To be fair, here are some supposed benefits:

clear skin, less painful periods from polycystic ovary syndrome and endometriosis, reduced risk of endometrial cancer, reduced risk of ovarian cancer

Despite the fact that the dangers seem to far, far, far outweigh any benefits, we’re not supposed to categorize birth control as controversial? Exhaust fumes, for all we know, might cure a headache, but according to Planned Parenthood’s philosophy, you should go ahead and suck on a tailpipe because it will immediately eliminate your pain.

The reason abortion groups are rallying around this “no controversy” message is the federal government. It insists that women everywhere have access—and by access it means free—to birth control paid for by someone else, either by the government through Medicaid reimbursements or federally mandated through insurance companies. Planned Parenthood doesn’t want women to pay for it. It wants the government to pay Planned Parenthood for it. Government money is addictive, and Planned Parenthood can’t inflate its ballooning CEO salaries without it.
