Loads of information here! An excellent article! This spring marks the 55th birthday of the birth control pill, championed by many, then and now, as the “best-thing-since-sliced-bread” solution to unplanned pregnancy, child abuse, overpopulation, and marital stress. After more than half a century of living with “the Pill,” however, many facts have emerged that paint a far less pretty picture. Regarding this last reason, the late … Continue reading A Bitter Pill To Swallow
In keeping with the international trend, we have just had breast cancer awareness week in the UK. Women were told to have mammograms, to take exercise, to avoid hormone replacement therapy, to breastfeed. All good. But, as usual, certain other things we should do or avoid were not mentioned. A woman would never guess, for example, that the choices she makes about pregnancy and childbirth … Continue reading Breast Cancer- The Risk They Don’t Mention
Mother Katy Evans was only 16 weeks pregnant when her waters unexpectantly broke. When she and her husband arrived at the hospital she was diagnosed with preterm pre-labor rupture of membranes, a condition that caused amniotic fluid to drain from her womb. Doctors told Katy and her husband that their precious baby had only a 1% chance of survival and she was encouraged to abort. … Continue reading Mom Refuses Abortion After Her Water Breaks at 16 Weeks. Her Baby Survives!
The World Heart Federation reports that physical inactivity increases the risk of heart disease and stroke by 50%, and the American Heart Association found moderately overweight women in one study had a 50% increased risk of coronary heart disease. To such reports, no one ever adds, “But that 50% doesn’t mean anything. So just sit on your couch all day and eat Twinkies.” And yet … Continue reading Dangerous Downplay: Docs Spin Study Linking The Pill to Breast Cancer
Editor’s note: We’re so used to spinning the facts to create our own reality we don’t know the truth from a lie anymore. This history, however, provides not so much an explanation of how we got here as a description of our progress (or rather decline). This history shows that the public has gotten more tolerant of political deception, but it does not tell us … Continue reading A Culture of Lies – From Feminism to Obamacare
Head up, shoulders back, stomach in. The vision of perfect posture can conjure up some pretty old-school and anal-retentive images: cotillion; finishing schools; the young lady in a sensible box-pleat dress, walking across the room with a stack of books on her head. The quest for ladylike poise may have given the upright posture game an uptight rep, but modern-day research shows that body alignment … Continue reading Lessons in Loveliness: Why Posture Counts More Than You know
Almost 900 medical professionals have now signed the Dublin Declaration on Maternal Health, launched in 2012 to declare that abortion is not needed to save women’s lives. Unveiled at the International Symposium on Maternal Healthcare in Dublin, Ireland, the Declaration states: “As experienced practitioners and researchers in obstetrics and gynaecology, we affirm that direct abortion – the purposeful destruction of the unborn child – is not medically … Continue reading Almost 900 doctors sign Dublin Declaration, affirm abortion is not maternal health
Victimhood escalates to stratospheric whining with Amanda Marcotte’s recent Slate post titled Let’s Stop Idealizing the Home-Cooked Family Dinner. The piece concluded more often than not family members (especially the male ones) were ingrates and, generally, home-cooked meals were too stressful, expensive, time-consuming, and utensil-dependent to be worthy of the trouble. Marcotte’s indictment of what she considers a romanticized cultural icon certainly speaks volumes about where our cultural … Continue reading ‘Slate’ Criticizes the ‘Home-Cooked Family Dinner’: Joel Salatin Responds
You know the saying, truth is stranger than fiction. Meet Bertold Wiesner. He was a British biologist who ran a fertility clinic from the 1940s to 1960s with the help of his wife, Mary Barton. He claimed to have helped infertile, British women conceive 1,500 children through artificial insemination. That is, by directly injecting sperm into the uterus, by artificial means. His big drawing card … Continue reading This Fertility Clinic Biologist May Be the Father to 600 Children!
From Large Family MotheringWhen people find out that I am the mother of 15 children, they have all sorts of things to say, although their comments seem to reveal three main trains of thought: I am an absolute idiot, dumber than a doorknob, unable to comprehend “what causes that.” I am an absolute saint imbued with super-special anointing from God. I am just a religious … Continue reading Don’t they know what “the pill” is for?
