Drawing a stark contrast between himself and the Republican presidential candidates on the issue of women’s reproductive rights, President Barack Obama released a statement on Sunday, the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, reaffirming his commitment to protect a woman’s right to choose.

The reality in recent times that there is a rapid decline in the age at menarche, that is, age at which young girls see their menstruation as well as increased schooling among girls are two key events that have prolonged the period of adolescence.
Increased schooling in particular has made teenagers less dependent on parents and family, and has postponed the age at marriage, and thereby the age of socially sanctioned sexual relations.

Misoprostol (or miso) is a drug which lessens postpartum bleeding, the leading cause of maternal death in the developing world. Traditional birth attendants in Mozambique who were part of a year-long trial of miso use in rural communities used words like “miraculous” to describe how beneficial misoprostal has been for women’s health. The birth attendants measured the effectiveness of miso with a cloth called the capulana. Before miso, birth attendants would need “three or four capulanas to soak up typical blood loss from the mother. After miso, they needed just one.” Increased access to miso in developing nations could help reduce the staggering discrepancy in maternal mortality rates between developing and developed nations. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), a woman in Mozambique has a 1 in 37 lifetime risk of maternal death. In the U.S., a woman’s lifetime risk of maternal death is 1 in 2,100.
Let’s face it, unprotected sex does happen and sometimes, with a bit of bad luck, condoms can break and situations can arise where a woman may need emergency contraception. This kind of contraception is used after sex but before you are pregnant. If you are unsure about talking with the pharmacist or GP for any reason – don’t be. It’s nothing to get nervous about. In fact, 3 out of 4 unwanted pregnancies could be prevented if all women used emergency contraception after unprotected sex, and many abortions could also be avoided. The power is yours.

Consumer beware! What your doctor isn’t telling you is that Gardasil leads all other vaccines in abortion stillbirth events. Does anyone actually review the VAERS data to protect the public? View the graph and decide for yourself.

It has been suggested that the H1N1 Flu vaccine causes miscarriages (see, for example, here, here, and here). This month, I want to see if the claim is supported by VAERS data.

In the pink month – the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we’d like readers to know something that many women may not have learned from any other source, and that is, induced abortion increases risk of breast cancer.

This fall, Watson Pharmaceuticals will begin manufacturing a new drug called “ella.” Ella was approved by the Food and Drug Administration on August 13, and was categorized as an “emergency contraceptive.” That categorization is misleading: As the Family Research Council and several allied organizations have been explaining to pharmacists and the public at large, the drug has the potential to induce abortion.

Teens who have had an abortion are no more likely to become depressed or have low self-esteem than their peers whose pregnancies don’t end in abortion, reported a press release by the Guttmacher Institute Sept. 24. The Oregon State University study found that having experienced low self-esteem and depression before having an abortion were the factors most closely linked to experiencing these issues again. A 2008 study by the American Psychological Association found no evidence of mental health problems in adult women following abortion, but because of a scarcity of evidence on teens, no conclusions were drawn.
