Based on the recent post about negative health effects of birth control, and positive health effects of having children and breast feeding, I wanted to provide some evidence for our readers. There are many websites and sources that provide information about these topics. But I will provide a few below that I thought were easy and clear to read.
www.cancer.org provided summaries of research that show not having children at all, or having your first child after the age of 30, increases a woman’s risk of getting breast cancer. Also, having multiple children, having children at a younger age, and breast feeding (especially longer than a year), could decrease a woman’s chance of breast cancer by half.
www.newstarget.com states that birth control pills have been proven to significantly increase a woman’s chance of getting breast cancer. The doctor writing this article explains that doctors are reluctant to tell women of this risk because contraceptives are such a “money-spinner that they get in the way of the risks”.
www.noroomforcontraception.com is a site that tells of the frightening effects of a contraceptive patch called “Ortho Evra”. Side effects such as fatal or non-fatal blood clots, heart attacks, and death were listed. Another effect of this type of contra. is the abortifacient property. That means, that in some cases, the woman may get pregnant, but the patch prevents implantation of the fertilized egg, which causes a spontaneous abortion, unbeknownst to her.
Which brings me to my next point about birth control pills: The birth control pill sometimes causes spontaneous abortions from the same effect as described above. THIS FACT IS NOT DISCUSSED WITH WOMEN BY THEIR DOCTORS. If you want evidence, just look it up. There are many studies that have concluded this finding. For the Christian woman, it is our duty to know what we are doing to our bodies and to our unborn children. Ignorance is not a sufficient excuse. Satan is subtle; he has found ways to kill our unborn children without our even knowing it! Let’s be vigilant in making our friends aware of these atrocities.
