A Word from the Director......

God always forgives, man sometimes forgives, but nature never forgives. 

Pope Paul VI never had his face on the cover of The Rolling Stone. In fact, when he promulgated his ground-breaking document Humanae Vitae, he was vilified by feminists, ridiculed by health care professionals, attacked by theologians, and ignored by many Catholic couples. With the advent of the birth control pill, the Holy Father was written off as outdated when he pointed out that artificial contraception was a violation of the natural ends of marriage. Over the intervening years, as the liberation of our libido has brought our culture to the depths of excess, the accumulating evidence from scientific studies has shown that the Roman pontiff was right.

The inconvenient truth is that estrogen-progestin steroids, used in hormonal birth control pills and devices, contain cancer-causing carcinogens. While our agenda-driven media has not reported this story, it is not news. In June, 2005, twenty-one scientists in the World Health Organization concluded that these drugs caused breast, cervical, and liver cancer. And in January, 2006 scientists at John Hopkins University came to the same conclusion in their study. Teenage girls, whose bodies are still developing, are particularly susceptible to the cancer-causing effects of these hormonal contraceptives.

Why the silence? I suppose this is primarily because it not only does not fit the popular message contrived by our elite leaders, it contradicts it. Facts have a nasty habit of getting in the way of a feel-good ideology. Also, if the truth be completely told, we all know good people who have used birth control pills, accepting them, with their fiction of safety, as a “fact of life.” As with smoking, we really don’t like being the ones to point out that this habit is hazardous to their health.

Then again, we want to be careful not to presume that the connection between birth control pills and breast cancer is automatic. Just as many smokers never get lung cancer and many with lung cancer were never smokers, so too, a number of women who use birth control pills will never develop breast cancer while a number who have suffered from it have never used the pill. Although a higher incidence of breast cancer has been found among women who have used this drug, the actual factor that would trigger it in any individual cannot be known.

Much is being said again about the “war on women”. Yet the hypocrisy of those making this charge is stunning. They claim to be “pro-choice” even as they keep from women that information which would help them make an informed choice. They demand that health insurance plans include oral contraceptives, which, with their carcinogens, are effectively poison pills. They would shut down self-sustaining pregnancy centers like ours that help women be hopeful and throw taxpayer money to abortion providers like Planned Parenthood that help women feel helpless. 

Yes, there is a war on women, but we are not the enemy. The self-righteous “champions of women’s rights” face the real foe in the mirror every morning. Though they may not have the courage to admit the truth, we are hopeful that women will come to recognize where the true deception lies. 

At Cross Road, we remain committed to providing our clients and in particular our youth with accurate information about birth control, sexually transmitted infections, fetal development, parenting options, and abortion procedures.

 A generation ago Pope Paul warned that it’s not nice to fool Mother Nature. Scientific studies have since shown us that you can’t.
