There’s a common misconception that if you’re opposed to government services, programs and/or departments, then you’re opposed to building roads, education, people getting affordable health care and even people taking care of the sick and elderly. These misconceptions are becoming more apparent as the free market offers solutions and options using innovation and technology, as the government continues to fall in on itself.
Six months into the pregnancy, we received a letter explaining that due to the changes in the law, our policy would no longer cover maternity services.
I continue to be amazed at the ingenuity of people and individuals working toward solutions in the marketplace, in spite of government. Over time government has assumed more and more control over medical decisions that individuals make everyday. Continue reading “FEE: How the Market Is Already Repealing Obamacare”
One of its top rhetorical gimmicks is to reference all the mammograms that women can receive by visiting Planned Parenthood: Planned Parenthood helps women nationwide get access to mammograms, as part of the range of health care Planned Parenthood health centers provide to nearly three million people a year. There’s only one problem: Planned Parenthood does not manage a single licensed mammography facility in the … Continue reading Planned Parenthood – Missing Mammograms
The pro-life advocates behind the four shocking videos exposing Planned Parenthood selling the body parts of aborted babies for research have released a 5th video today that catches a Planned Parenthood official discussing how the abortion business sells “fully intact” aborted babies. The video, which follows Senate Democrats defeating a bill to de-fund Planned Parenthood, makes it appear the Planned Parenthood abortion business may be … Continue reading 5th Video Released: We Will Sell You Fully Intact Babies
Where would you expect to find a film about the oral contraceptive pill which begins with the comment that this is “the first medical drug made specifically to treat people who aren’t sick”? Not at a bastion of liberal opinion such as the UK Guardian website. But that is where the video above was posted last month, warning that if you weren’t sick when you … Continue reading Family Edge: Side Effects of the Pill 102: Death
Harvard gastroenterologist Dr Hamed Khalili’s study of 230,000 American women found that those who had used the pill for five years or more had a 300 percent higher risk of developing Crohn’s disease than those who had never used it. Dr Khalili explained that while oral contraceptive drugs do not directly cause Crohn’s disease, the synthetic hormones have side effects that contribute to the higher … Continue reading Crohn’s Disease and the Pill
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
Alistair and Emily Caines are showing the world that every life has purpose, every life has meaning, no matter how short. Their daughter, Adeline Caines, living just 24 weeks from gestation to delivery has testified to the world that we’ve been lied to in the worst way. That we can kill and suffer no consequences. We have believed for far to long, “Our will be … Continue reading The Life and Death of This Baby is Changing The Abortion Debate
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
February 4, 2014 (ThePublicDiscourse.com) – Cuando yo crezca, voy a tener bebes por dinero. Igual que mi mama. When I grow up, I want to have babies for money. Just like my mom. The women most at risk of hearing these words are women of color, immigrant women, and women in developing countries: in other words, the most marginalized and vulnerable. These are sisters, mothers, and daughters who … Continue reading Commercialized surrogacy creates a second-class citizenry
It appears Live Action isn’t the only organization nailing Planned Parenthood in undercover investigations. Add none other than Vanity Fair to the list. I’m late reading a 10,000 word exposé in the magazine’s January issue on the dangers of a hormonal birth control device called NuvaRing. The article is scathing, heartbreaking, and maddening. It is hard to fathom how birth control rings could still be … Continue reading Vanity Fair Busts Planned Parenthood
