If you are one of the few people who have yet to see this video, check it out:
The segment is on the new birth control pill that gets rid of your periods. It’s the exact same thing as regular birth control, but it eliminates the monthly placebo pills. Your period on birth control is fake. This pill just skips the fake period — something that women have been doing on their own for years.
Unruh is absolutely off her rocker. She even claims that this new form of birth control will make you infertile, and that birth control is a pesticide. She also smiles the entire time, which is kind of unnerving, and at the end feels the need to remind us that she wants more babies, because “We love babies!”
Sure ya do, Leslee. You love them until they’re born, and then you don’t want any of your precious tax dollars going to pay for their health care, education, or nutrition. You love them so much that you want to take away a woman’s ability to prevent unwanted pregnancy — and it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that more unwanted pregnancies = more abortions. But that’s ok, because pro-lifers like Unruh love babies — and life — so very, very much.
And Neil Cavuto is concerned that this new birth control pill is going to turn 13-year-olds into whores — as if birth control was this brand new crazy thing. I think Neil is a few decades too late on this one.
So who is Leslee Unruh? Another powerful extremist who, like most mainstream “pro-life” leaders, opposes not only abortion but contraception. Her organizations are well-funded by the Bush administration.
