Who Does Birth Control – Control?

Condoms and birth control out, IUDs and hormonal implants for teen girls are in

Holy Hormones Journal: It appears to me that the pharmaceutical and medical industry is paving the way for Bill Gates microchip that will be on the market in 3 years… dripping war-women-sisters-printer-v2synthetic hormones into a woman’s arm for up to 16 years. And it will be controlled by a remote… who will control the remote? Well who controls the remote in your household? So we have moved from not allowing teen girls to have sex to putting them on birth control for everything from acne to a broken ankle to ‘regulate’ their periods… and since they think they are safe from pregnancy they go out and have unprotected sex and then contract STD’s. Oh, but there is a shot for that – Merck the manufacturer of the implant that pediatricians are recommending also stands on the other side of the fence with their HPV vaccine. Double the money – double the profit -double the bank roll. Two bangs with every girl.

Putting young girls on synthetic hormone STEROIDS before their endocrine system develops and their menstrual cycle develops a rhythmic flow is dangerous period. This whole man-made myth that women do not need periods is killing women.

I understand that over 750,000 teenage girls will become pregnant this year – but where are the boys/men in this conversation – other than trying to put women on steroids, implants and IUD’s.  You cannot tell me that 750,000 girls laid down and spread their legs and said, “come n get it baby.” Not happening. Not when 1 in 3 women is sexually assaulted or abused globally.

At the same time these ‘birth control’ recommendations were hitting the media, many women’s organizations celebrated/lauded/heralded World Contraception Day on Sept. 26.  An article was posted discussing the top 5 benefits of contraception. They stated:

Contraception is a vital part of the sexual and reproductive rights of girls and women. It’s a powerful tool that should be wielded much more strongly in order to spur development, enhance global security, and let girls and women live the full lives they want and deserve.

Agreed – yes, yes and yes.

The author’s of the article also state:

Control over her body is a woman’s human right.

Sounds good on paper – right? But what happens when that control is controlled by your pediatrician – or gynecologist – or some dude holding a remote device that switches the synthetic hormone device in your body off & on – determining when and where you can have a child?

That is no longer birth control.

That is the ultimate control over women.

That is eugenics.

There is a difference.

 

Long-Term Birth Control Works Best For Teens, Pediatricians Say

NPR

“Always remember to use protection” is a fairly straightforward message for sexually active teens. But young women have a lot of options when it comes to the types of protection they longtermcontrol_wide-99211d9100cb213eb319cc6135f9b4222250ad28-s40-c85can choose to use.

This week, the American Academy of Pediatricians recommended long-acting reversible contraceptives such as IUDs and contraceptive implants as the best line of defense against teen pregnancies. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has backed long-acting contraceptives for teens since 2012, as have various women’s health groups, saying that these methods are safe and more effective than other forms of contraception.

The problem is, most teens don’t know much about IUDs and implants, and doctors sometimes hesitate to prescribe these methods, says Gina Secura, an epidemiologist at Washington University in St. Louis. Besides using condoms, the majority of teens who use birth control use the pill.

But when practitioners told teen women about all their contraceptive options, from most effective to least effective, 72 percent chose long-acting options, according to a study by Secura and her colleagues published Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine.

The researchers enrolled more than 1,400 teens in the study, as part of the larger CHOICE study designed to promote the use of long-acting contraceptives.

All of the participants were given contraceptive counseling and provided whatever form of birth control they wanted for free. Over a three-year period, the pregnancy rate among the girls enrolled was much lower than the national average — 34 per 1,000, compared with the national rate of 158 per 1,000 sexually active teens. And the rate of abortion among the teens in the study was a quarter of the national rate.
