Dangers of Oral Contraceptives birth control

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a Republican and a potential 2016 presidential candidate, has a solution for the GOP's birth control problem: Make it over the counter.
"The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists announced its support last month for selling oral contraceptives over the counter without a prescription in the United States," Jindal writes in Friday's Wall Street Journal opinion section. "I agree with this opinion, which if embraced by the federal government would take contraception out of the political arena." Jindal also writes that prescription birth control drives up costs with unnecessary doctors' visits.

"Democrats have wrongly accused Republicans of being against birth control and against allowing people to use it. That's hogwash," Jindal wrote. "But Republicans do want to protect those who have religious beliefs that are opposed to contraception."

Democrats used Republicans' objections to the mandatory birth control coverage portion of Obama's health care law as a way to turn women voters against conservative candidates this election season. Their objections, Democrats argued, were part of a larger "war on women" fought by Republican lawmakers. (A "war" that worsened when conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh called law student Sandra Fluke a "slut" for testifying that she believes contraception should be covered by insurance plans.)
Republicans said they were simply worried that some employers' religious freedom would be infringed upon if their health care plans had to include contraception.


Shame on you, Gov Jindal! Mad
FYI, my previous pastor in Lousiana called Jindal a "man of faith" on the pulpit a few years ago. How can even pastors stoop to this low. Mad

What Are the Dangers of Oral Contraceptives?

They have a lot of side effects. My friend got sick because of it.
Schools Implant IUDs in Girls as Young as 6th Grade Without Their Parents Knowing

Earlier this month, reported on a high school in Seattle, Washington that is now implanting intrauterine devices (IUD), as well as other forms of birth control and doing so without parental knowledge or permission.

The IUD is known as a long acting reversible contraception, and may even act as an abortifacient. So, a young teen in Seattle canít get a coke at her high school, but she can have a device implanted into her uterus, which can unknowingly kill her unborn child immediately after conception. Or, if she uses another method, she can increase her chances of health risks for herself, especially if using a new method.

The high school, Chief Sealth International, a public school, began offering the devices in 2010, made possible by a Medicaid program known as Take Charge and a non-profit, Neighborcare. Students can receive the device or other method free of cost and without their parentís insurance. And while itís lauded that the contraception is confidential, how can it be beneficial for a parent-child relationship when the parents donít even know the devices or medication their daughter is using?

As it turns out, Chief Sealth isnít the only school in Seattle doing this. As CNS News reports, more schools are fitting young girls ó as young as 6th grade ó with the devices and doing so without their parents knowing. Forum Index -> HEALTH and Medical NEWS
