It’s not pretty, either.
Check out this ad campaign running in New England:
We’re your quickie? We’re your afternoon delight? Friend with benefits?
Take everything disgusting about the sexual revolution and roll it into one ad campaign. This is it. Flexible, in the mood, convenient, no strings attached. How quaint.
Jill Stanek posted Dr. Gerard Nadal’s counter-campaign. Snazzy and truthful:
We’re Your Breast Cancer
Our pills will increase your risk of the worst form of BC 540% if you start before age 18. (See the scientific reference in even smaller print.)
We’re Your HPV and Herpes Infection
According to the FDA: “Genital ulcer diseases and HPV infections can occur in both male and female genital areas that are covered or protected by a latex condom, as well as in areas that are not covered.”
We’re Your Premature Birth
Abortions often damage the cervix, leading to inability to hold babies in for a full term in future pregnancies.
We’re Your Sterility
Abortions often badly scar the uterus, leading to future sterility.
We’re Your PID
Performing gynecologic surgery on women with untreated Chlamydia infection leads to Pelvic Inflammatory Disease in up to 25% of these women within a month. Hey, ask us if we test you for Chlamydia before aborting your baby!
We’re Your Ectopic Pregnancy
Progestin-only contraceptive use is associated with a five-fold increase in ectopic pregnancies among progestin-only users.
I’ll add one of my own for good measure:
We’re Your Polluter of the Water Supply
For all the eco-consciousness of pill-takers everywhere, they pee estrogen causing deformities in delicate ecosystems. To say nothing of the residual hormones left in our municipal water supplies (which cannot be removed). Save a frog, use Natural Family Planning!
