They Are Coming for Your Birth Control: “Obama Wants To Kill You With Hormonal Steroids”


Note: Think that anti-choice politicians and activists aren’t trying to outlaw contraception?  Think again.  Follow along in an ongoing series that proves beyond a doubt that they really are coming for your birth control.

All of those claims that the Affordable Care Act has been beneficial to women?  They are all lies. The real truth? Obamacare is an insidious plot to kill women. Proof? Why else would he be offering birth control with no co-pay, unless it was because he wants every woman to die of cancer?

Karen Malec, president of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer said, “It is ludicrous to suggest that women will have more freedom and will be ‘empowered’ by taking cancer-causing hormonal steroids, i.e. birth control pills, injections, vaginal rings, skin patches and some IUDs.

“Real empowerment of women means being free from the risks associated with taking these hormonal steroids, which can include not only cancer, but heart attacks, strokes, blood clots, gall bladder disease, urinary tract infections, bone mineral density loss and increased susceptibility to HIV/AIDS. [1] Fifty-three of 69 epidemiological studies link induced abortion with increased breast cancer risk. [2]

“With its mandate from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services requiring insurers to provide women with free health-damaging hormonal steroids, but not free life-saving chemotherapy, ObamaCare represents not only an attack on the rights to religious freedom and conscience, but also a grave attack on women’s health.”

In actuality, the risk of cancer is quite minimal, in some cases may lower risks for certain cancers, and the elevated risk returns to normal after you discontinue using hormonal contraception.

But remember, they just want to protect women and keep them healthy.  It’s not like they are coming for your birth control.
