CONTRACEPTIVES ARE POLLUTION
by Peggy A. Norris, M.D.
Birth control pills, devices and injections pollute women's bodies and
endanger their offspring. It is fashionable to be concerned about the
environment and ecology. The womb is mankind's environment for the first
nine months of life. When mothers' bodies are polluted by toxins, virus,
bacteria, etc., then the life and health of the next generation is also at
In September of 1986, "Science Digest" published an 8-page article "The
Contraceptive Crisis," reporting that during that year, insurers canceled
the policies of almost every manufacturer of contraceptive pills. "We are
driving ourselves back into the middle ages," said abortionist Malcolm
"The Dalkon shield introduced in 1971 was withdrawn after 3 years" the
article continued, "because of thousands of cases of pelvic infections,
sterility and miscarriages." Heavy bleeding with 60-150% loss has been
noted. "A study 4 years ago found that 60% of non-sterilized women felt
that no available contraceptive was satisfactory."
IUDs work by preventing or disrupting implantation. Ovulation may be
inhibited because of the presence of the foreign body in the womb. Tubal
and uterine muscle activity is accelerated. Oral contraceptives are
intended to suppress ovulation. In 1965 Arnold Klopper, a scientist and
obstetrician, stated that women taking these drugs "are, endocrinologically
speaking, in a state of chemical castration . . . in cases where ovulation
is not suppressed it is likely that nidation is prevented; or cervical
mucus prevents sperm passage . . . Words like testosterone have an
unfortunate connotation and are carefully avoided, although all but one of
the compounds on the British market are 19-nortestosterone derivatives."
These drugs are highly potent artificial steroids (hormones). Malcolm Potts
states in his book that they cause 150 different chemical changes in the
body. Fat (lipid) and glucose metabolism and blood viscosity are altered
as are trace elements and vitamins. It is a nightmare scenario. No wonder
contraceptive pills for men have been slow to appear!
The death rate in women taking OCs continuously for 5 years are ten times
that of controls, and death from circulatory disease are 5 times that of
women who have never taken OCs. Deaths include heart attacks, brain
hemorrhage and pulmonary embolism.
A recent report confirmed cancer of the breast, with 20% raised risk in
younger nulliparous women. Cancer of the neck of the womb in teenagers who
are already infected with the papilloma virus is potentiated by the pill.
The pill advertisements in medical journals mention tumors of the liver
(malignant and benign), hemorrhage in the eye, double vision, migraine,
depression and skin rashes. Cleft palate and limb reduction has been
reported in newborns. The list is endless.
The injectable preparations are Depo-Provera and Norplant. Depo is commonly
given at 3 monthly intervals. Norplant consists of 6 rods which are
inserted under the skin and last 5 years. The U.S. journal "Fertility &
Sterility," no. 5 (1988), stated these alternative delivery systems "have
not been studied as extensively as oral progestins but undoubtedly have
similar effects." This article included reference to vaginal rings.
Complications included delay in return of fertility, inability to reverse
adverse effects, concern regarding neoplasia (cancer). Ectopic pregnancies
have occurred with injectables. Women in Bangladesh were not informed that
they were part of a trial when given Norplant. This was exposed by the
organization UBINIG in the quarterly journal of the international feminist
organization, FINRRAGE. The women in this study complained of dizziness,
headache, irregular bleeding and burning sensation of the hands and feet
and generalized aches and pains.
Earlier in 1988 hard sell advertising in India claimed that the pill would
keep "the woman in you young and alive, besides improving the complexion."
Mass sterilization in India brought down the Government in the 1970s.
Complications included death, uterine, bowel and bladder perforations and
pelvic infection. Men also died from sepsis. In the UK and US there is now
a query regarding sterilization and cancer of the prostate, also kidney
stones and hardening of the arteries.
In a series of 73 pregnancies in the UK after failed sterilization there
were 11 tubal (ectopic) pregnancies--that is, 15%. Tubal sterilizations are
the most common cause of medico-legal action. Imagine the dangers of tubal
pregnancies in rural areas in the world without access to medical services.
A few women in England have died in their homes from unrecognized ectopic
In 1978 the noted former colonical medical officer, Dr. Cecily Williams,
writing on health and births in Singapore, stated "the vast improvement in
health is not due . . . to mass campaigns for disease or birth control but
to the gradual establishment of law and order, health education and
economic development . . . The remarkable reduction in birth rate from 50
per 100,000 in 1950 to 12 per 100,000 now is due to child care, not to vast
expenditure or birth control." Similarly, in 1991 J. Kelly wrote "in the
area (ATTAT) of Ethiopia covered by health care programs . . . there was a
substantial reduction in crude birth rate from 38 to 16.6 per 1,000."
Why do the WHO and the UN not heed those who work with the people in the
Third World? And why do they not publicize and promote breast feeding? "The
Lancet" (23 March 1991) stated "this can give (women) a two year interval
between births." The WHO have admitted that using a woman's natural cycle
of fertility and infertility is as efficient as contraceptives and is
culturally acceptable. For example, it has been taught and used for the
past 25 years in Nigeria and elsewhere. It gives control of fertility to
the husband and wife. Only they have the right to decide on the number of
children they can rear and educate.
The encyclical "Humanae Vitae" was prophetic in refusing to bow to the
pressure to endorse methods which interfere and destroy the rhythms of our
Catholics should be proud of the fact that the Vatican is the only
institution in the world to have defended the world's people against the
population policies of the West which are genocidal and racist.
