Did you know if you use birth control… you will have teeny tiny little fetuses embedded into your uterus? Yup! Those little phantom kicks you feel on occasion, those are actually the ghost of fetus past which you killed off by taking the proper precautions of using birth control to prevent pregnancy.
It’s OK, you can pick your jaw up off the keyboard now and continue reading because it gets better.
In a Todd Akin-like lapse of judgment, pastor and conservative radio show host Kevin Swanson shared some questionable information supposedly given to him by doctors recently:
I’m beginning to get some evidence from certain doctors and certain scientists that have done research on women’s wombs after they’ve gone through the surgery, and they’ve compared the wombs of women who were on the birth control pill to those who were not on the birth control pill. And they have found that with women who are on the birth control pill, there are these little tiny fetuses, these little babies, that are embedded into the womb. They’re just like dead babies. They’re on the inside of the womb. And these wombs of women who have been on the birth control pill effectively have become graveyards for lots and lots of little babies.
Yes, your birth control has apparently turned your uterus into a little graveyard.
I take issue with this on two completely different sides. First, I will start with the mothers who have suffered miscarriages, still-births, and infertility. To me, this is just a slap in the face. Many already feel heartbroken enough, but to have a comment like this made is like a knife to the heart.
Then there is the issue of this guy just being plain old bat shit crazy, and not giving any kind of credible evidence on his claims. I am sure the doctors “backing up” this claim are the same doctors who backed up Todd Akin’s claims that women who are legitimately raped cannot get pregnant.
In either way, this guys comments were so offensive, they are hysterical.
I came across this video on YouTube of the David Packman show commenting on Swanson’s comments.
Comments from some women on Facebook:
“Seriously?! This is soo ridiculous! No basis in scientific fact whatsoever! I hate these ridiculous efforts to try to get more people against birth control.” – Zinzi
“If I’d only known, I would of put up cobwebs in it for Halloween.” – Valerie
“Wow.” – Tifany
Yup, that pretty much sums it up ladies!
One more anti-birth control advocate making a complete ass of themselves in their war against contraception. Better luck next time boys!
