The use of contraceptives is also not a solution in itself.

There are many studies that have proven the adverse biological effects of contraceptives.

For example, the National Research Council (US) Committee on Population documents that oral contraceptives are likely to cause cardiovascular disease, in particular, the risk of venous thromboembolism, myocardial infarction, and stroke;

Neoplastic Diseases: neoplasia that are of greatest concern with the potential effects of OC use are breast cancer, cervical cancer, endometrial cancer, and ovarian cancer; Metabolic Effects.

The intrauterine device (IUD) is also said to cause pelvic inflammatory disease, tubal infertility, septic abortion, spontaneous abortion, and uterine perforation.

These are too few to mention and various sources provide alarming evidence.

Again, contraception is a form of abortion and this is overtly revealed in cases where contraceptives fail.

This is well captured by Judie Brown, the founder, and president of the American Life League, who aptly asserts that;

‘The contraceptive mentality suggests that men and women have absolute and total control over their reproductive lives. Once you have that mindset and the contraceptives fail, then you can eliminate that problem [the pregnancy] as well.’
