How the Pill Kills Women (continued)

With all these problems and terrible side effects, have there been any lawsuits?
What made headlines in 2008 was the news that Johnson and Johnson, a pharmaceutical company, has spent at least $68.7 million to settle hundreds of lawsuits "filed by women who suffered blood clots, heart attacks or strokes after using the company’s Ortho Evra birth-control patch." Johnson and Johnson was forced to recall its product. 19

Did you know?
Back in 1956, large-scale human clinical trials of the pill began, in order to gain approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Dr. Gregory Pincus, a biologist who worked closely with Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood’s founder, chose Puerto Rico as the location for the human trials because it provided a large pool of poor, uneducated women who could be easily monitored. The local doctor in charge of the study told Pincus that the pill causes "too many side reactions to be generally acceptable." However, Pincus and Dr. John Rock, a Catholic ob-gyn who violated Church teachings by advocating contraception, dismissed her findings and did not investigate what caused the side effects, nor did they investigate the causes of the deaths that took place during the trials. 20

Today the pill still kills.
The pill killed women back before the pill was even "approved" in the U.S., and the pill continues to kill today.

Why aren’t we hearing more about this?
Could it be because of the millions of dollars invested in contraception? There are still so many questions that are NOT answered about womens' deaths that have occurred. Investigations are not done to see if they might be caused by the use of the pill or other hormonal contraceptives. That is why we are protesting: to inform women of this dangerous poison!

In closing, let’s look at Jennifer Gray’s story:
Jennifer Gray was 25 years old and had just started her dream job as a meteorologist in Miami, Florida. Less than two months after moving to Miami, she began to experience fever and body aches. Her doctors told her it was a urinary tract infection; however, she was experiencing shortness of breath and pain in her lungs. It turned out that Jennifer had pulmonary emboli in both lungs, and her doctor told her she could have died if she had not persisted in getting medical help.

After several tests, it was discovered that Jennifer carried what’s called Factor V Leiden. This makes her more likely to experience blood clotting by "50-fold." It was discovered that the birth control pills that she had been taking triggered the clot.

Praise God that Jennifer survived. How many other women will not be so fortunate? We must stand up and educate women on the true nature of the pill. The pill kills women.
