Women’s Health — Planned Parenthood

The chance of getting breast cancer in the overall US population is 12.5% over the course of a woman’s lifetime.  Whether abortion increases the risk of breast cancer is something that is medically disputed. However the impact of abortion on cervical cancer is less so.  Each year 7.5 women per 100,000 will contract cervical cancer.  Cervical-Cancer

Among women who have had one abortion that risk is 2.3 times higher than the risk in the general population.   For those women 17.25 out of every 100,000 will get cervical cancer. Based on the fact that Planned Parenthood performed 300,000 abortions last year 45 women more per year will contract cervical cancer.  Roughly a quarter of those women will not survive.  Some studies suggest an 5 fold increase of cervical cancer among post abortive women which would mean an extra 90 cases per year.  Roughly 20 of those cases will be fatal.

Do you think this information is given to Planned Parenthood’s often young and vulnerable clients?    Beyond the immediate medical risks associated with abortion there are a host of long term life risks.  I would think that this information should be widely distributed and given to clients seeking abortion services.  Even if you believe it is a women’s right to chose, they need to know what they are choosing.  It may well not be what they think.

For many the immediate convenience of not having to try and raise a child outweighs the effort to carry to term and either attempt to raise the child or have it adopted.  The long term consequences to the physical and mental health of the client have long been ignored in this space.   For many those consequences are far worse than having a child that they ultimately love and who loves them.  For some the consequence is an early grave.  There is tremendous research to support this.

For me I would do everything in my power to make abortion unnecessary and undesirable. Learn more at Sav-a-Life Shelby.  Or sponsor me for the walk dedicated to changing women’s minds and helping them succeed in life.

Living in Fear

That is what the media wants from you, to live in terror, to fear that the oceans will rise and wipe out Hawaii or that there is a rash of crime and you are the target.  Compounded with legitimate fears it is amazing that any of us function at all.  I was recently  impressed by a friend of mine facing potentially terminal cancer, but he was not fearful.  To be more accurate he was not worried about death.  He was more worried about the discomfort  of chemo than he was about the prospect of dying.

I have noticed that believers who have accepted Christ as their savior generally face potentially fatal events with far less trepidation than those that are in any other religion. There a grace and peace that believers in Christ have that provides an assurance of what will occur after death.  That assurance is not one of a mental understanding but one of a heart understanding that is often described as from the holy spirit.  Beyond the indisputable events of Jesus’s death and resurrection that to me is proof of that reality.  It is the impact of that reality on this world.

Obamacare – Deathcare

Tens of thousands lost their doctors.  Millions of American lost their insurance. Millions more now pay substantially more out of their own pockets for health insurance for substantially less benefit.  Yet, Obama this week claimed that Obamacare Works.  The only measure that indicates that this program works is that some insurance companies are making a lot more profit than they were before this program was enacted.  The program does not work, has never worked and costs lives, and livelihoods.

Congress has the numbers and the power to abolish this program and override a veto as it remains so unpopular that even senate democrats will vote to abolish it, if they are presented with the bill as a campaign issue.  The insurance companies that are making more lobby to keep Obamacare, often more out of fear than true desire.   ABC, NBC, CBS, and MSNBC all continue to support it because it fits their agenda and provides ad dollars from the insurance companies.  In fact, these outlets are as responsible for this law remaining in effect as is Congress.

Obamacare won’t pay for a head transplant, (we can understand why this is experimental)  but cutting out the best cancer drugs and doctors has already caused the loss of life.  Every time one of these stories is ignored by ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, or FOX News these organizations along with Congress are responsible for murder.   Most of the media ignores the truth and continues to put out false information about these programs.

Whether they do so because they improve their profits, or because of ideology, or because of political pressure does not matter.  They are, by law, supposed to foster the public good.  This is one area among many where they have not only fostered public harm, but continue to do so.  As Obama Praises Obamacare this week, none of them challenged him, or publically excoriated a program that continues to harm Americans by the millions.  By that standard their license to be on the airwaves should be revoked.

Congress needs to cancel this program lock stock and barrel.  Pay for play in this area continues to cost American lives and make millions of Americans poorer and at greater health risk than ever before.  It is almost impossible to boycott every news organization but every Congressman that does not successfully repeal this law needs to be voted out. Period.  Every candidate that does not actively work toward its repeal needs to be not elected.  It is time to take back our lives in this area.

A New Low – In all the News

Today, looking at the Drudge report between stories about Iran, Government snooping, a threat to the internet and about the softball questions 60 minutes gave to Obama, the story that caught my eye was a story about a women who died of cancer but was heard yelling from within her coffin.   It really is not all that different than looking at endless puppy videos on YouTube, or frittering away time on Candy Crush.  Who wants to deal with the real stuff.

The real stuff is the stuff of the economy, politics, society, crime, war, terrorists, threats and the impact of history on our day to day lives.  We have become a society that has often mastered the ability to distract ourselves from the real stuff.  In a democratic society that distraction is dangerous.  The people in charge of keeping watch on the government in our country is us.  The constitution says so, “We The People”.  If we the people are not staying on top of things, being aware, being educated and fighting for freedom, then we will lose the freedom that has allowed us to become the most secure, and prosperous country in the world.

With cell phones, IPads, tablets, games, social media and the digital boob tube we have let the entertainment industry distract us and take us way away from what’s important.     If we as a nation were far less distracted, there is no limit to what we could accomplish.  We need to take our brains back from never never land.

Obomacare — Kiss Your Old Age Good Bye

Image     Yesterday saw the government taking a huge bow for reaching the 7 million mark in enrollees. Never-mind that over half of those signups came from people who lost the insurance they liked.  Only a third of the signups are among the previously uninsured.  So, the law, designed to insure the 40 plus million of Americans who did not have insurance only insured 2.1 million of those people.  And folks, that is a best case scenario since many of those people have not paid their premium so are really not insured.   Looking at the best case scenario, the program only achieved 5 % of what it was supposed to do.  A 5% success rate is the good news that our government is celebrating. 

So what is Obamacare actually doing or has it done?

 

  1. Taken the free market of 100’s of plans and forced those into just a handful of plans with higher deductibles and copays.
  2. Substantially increased the cost for the majority of Americans, often by 50 to 100 percent.
  3. Increased insurance overhead by over $300 per person with no benefit whatsoever.
  4. Caused an ever increasing number of doctors to plan to withdraw from the system or retire.
  5. Eliminated access through insurance to many of the best hospitals and cancer centers.
  6. Given the government a new way to track every American’s behavior.
  7. Given the government a way to control the behavior of every American.
  8. Proven that the government does not need to go to Congress to change a law it does not like.
  9. Made Congress totally powerless.
  10. Implemented death panels by eliminating expensive care
  11. Start to bankrupt insurance companies.
  12. Proven the AMA and AARP have nothing but their own pocket’s interest.
  13. Destroyed the best healthcare in the world.

If you plan to live a long life, you and I and everyone we know need to get people in place to repeal this thing completely.  It is already a source of oppression, and has already endangered the lives of the people it is supposed to protect.  If you expect your future heart disease, cancer or other debilitating disease to be treated by government run healthcare, think again.  The whole country should march on Washington.  Not a single incumbent should remain in office.  Recall elections for every Senator not up for election should be held.  Obomacare is the loss of freedom, the future of state oppression, and the death of our Constitution.  I don’t know what all it will take to stop this, but if it is not stopped, you can kiss your old age goodbye.
