Who's at risk?

  • First, women who take the birth control pill, patch and other birth control products are at risk because they are the ones that are putting these dangerous hormonal steroids directly into their bodies. The pill can cause a woman to develop deep vein thrombosis, which is a blood clot that forms in a vein. The blood clot can block the blood supply to the heart or brain, resulting in a heart attack, stroke or death. The clot could also travel to the lungs, which then could result in a pulmonary embolism or death. It is estimated that 25,000 lawsuits could take place in the United States due to the Yaz birth control pill.5
  • Second, the birth control pill, patch, intra-uterine device (IUD) and similar birth control products also work as an abortifacient by thinning the uterine lining and making it impossible for the newly conceived child to implant and grow.
  • Third, the hormones in the contraceptives are partially absorbed by the body of the woman who consumes them and the remainder end up in our wastewater, which poses hazards to the environment and ultimately to those who use consume the water and the products of the water.

Who's warning us?

  • In 2002, Colorado biologist John Woodling and a team of researchers found that female fish outnumbered the males and that some had both male and female sex tissue in the South Platte River and Boulder Creek. "This is the first thing that I've seen as a scientist that really scared me," said John Woodling.6
  • In 2003, the Seattle Post Intelligencer reported that Western Washington scientists found that synthetic estrogen can drastically reduce the fertility of male rainbow trout. "In frogs, river otters and fish, scientists are 'finding the presence of female hormones making the male species less male,' said Doug Myers, wetlands and habitat specialist for the Puget Sound Action Team."7
  • In 2005, Kevin Kelley, a research endocrinologist at California State University-Long Beach who studied the effects the estrogen found in the wastewater was having on marine species, said that modern sewage treatment facilities do a lot to clean up urban effluent, but they cannot touch many of the substances that are excreted with urine, such as estrogen.8
  • In 2006, the United States Geological Survey performed a study on fish in the Potomac River and found that 80 percent of the smallmouth bass had intersex characteristics -- these male fish were growing female reproductive parts.9
  • In 2007, Karen Kidd, a biologist with the Canadian Rivers Institute at the University of New Brunswick, reported that estrogen from birth control pills can cause wild fish populations to collapse: "[W]omen on birth control pills also secrete the synthetic estrogen in those pills ... And those estrogens, depending on the level of wastewater treatment, may not be completely broken down during sewage treatment, so they get discharged into rivers and streams."10
  • Dr. Jose Maria Simon Castellvi, president of the International Catholic Medical Association, reported in January 2009 that the birth control pill has devastating effects not only on a preborn person, but also on the environment. As he pointed out: "We have sufficient data to state that one of the causes of masculine infertility in the West is the environmental contamination caused by the products of the 'pill.'"11

Who would have known that a little pill would have such devastating effects? Now that you know, please help educate the people in your community!
