Birth Control and Equality with Men

Birth Control and Equality with Men

If you study the beginnings of birth control, you will find that they came from evil roots which was fully supported by feminism. “Family life was and always will be the foundation of any civilization. Destroy the family and you destroy the country” (Erin Pizzey).  “Feminism is Communist both in origin and spirit. It pretends to champion women but in fact neuters both sexes and destroys the basic social unit, the family” (Henry Makow Ph.D.).

God is the giver of life. He wants married couples having babies; for “happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them” (Psalm 127:5).

A friend told me a year or so ago about a doctor named Kelly Brogan who is having great success treating people through natural means to get well. I receive emails from her and the latest one was about the birth control pill.

“I used to think of birth control as a woman’s right, a gift from Big Pharma that exalted women to a place of equality with their male counterparts. That is, until I learned about the horrendous list of side effects — and what women were actually giving up as part of this exchange. When patients come to me with complaints of low libido, low or flat mood, weight gain, hair loss, and cloudy thinking, one of my first questions is, ‘Are you on the pill?’ And when they complain about premenstrual irritability, insomnia, tearfulness, bloating, and breast tenderness, requesting that I sanction a course of oral contraceptives combined with an antidepressant, I tell them there’s a better way.”

She was excited to think that the birth control pill exalted her to a place of equality with men. Why? Does she not like the way God created her uniquely female? Apparently not, and it’s the same with many women today. In their minds, men were free to have sex without consequences (not really) and be able to have careers and then with the advent of the birth control pill, women were free to have sex and pursue careers without consequences, or so they thought. No, the pill was no magic formula that gave women a place of equality with men or gave them free sex without consequences.

Women weren’t made to be men and men weren’t made to be women. When we mess with God’s original design and intention for us, chaos reigns. I know many women who have suffered from the birth control pill. In fact, Dr. Brogan calls it post-birth control syndrome since so many women are suffering from the horrendous side effects. It’s stopping a normal bodily process which is never good. Trying to attain the place of equality with men is never good, either, and neither is trying to prevent children which God calls blessings. Both of these have resulted in far more harm than good.

How were women so easily deceived and convinced to believe that having careers was better and more important than bearing and raising the next generation? How were they manipulated into thinking a little pill taken every day so they can be like men is more important than cuddling their little babies at home? Being at home with children at your feet isn’t bondage, dear women. It’s doing exactly what God has called you to do if you are able! Children bring laughter and joy into homes but they do need to be raised correctly in the nurture and the admonition of the Lord. Birth control is not something to celebrate especially since it has led to the slaughter of millions of unborn babies.

Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
Psalm 127:3, 4

  1. It is mainly used as an excuse to be promiscuous without having to risk an unwanted pregnancy! I think if you don’t want STD’s or an unwanted pregnancy, then literally don’t have sex instead of making a pill to try to erase all the consequences and promote hook up culture! Not to mention, birth control is not 100% effective and does not always protect against every STD. Abstinence works people 100% 😉 Better yet, actually have the self control to wait until you’re married before having sex and getting pregnant!

  2. What wonderful words Lori, thank you for sharing them. I agree so very much. I wish I always knew the truth about birth control but I’m glad to know it now.

    I am so happy to be here in my home amongst my most favorite people in the world. I don’t know why women choose to be away from those they love the most. Serving my family is a blessing. Life is so very short which makes me glad to be mothering as a career because it gets the greatest returns.

  3. There is the lie that claim that birth control pills are safe. If that’s true why are there so many PSAs( public service announcements) on tv about joining lawsuits regarding deadly results about their use? Women have suffered strokes, heart attacks and more over those poison pills all in the name of ” freedom”.

    There’s a better way! Stop having sex before marriage and when you’re marriage let the Lord control family size. God knows better than we do.

  4. I would like to just say that many women (including myself) take birth control to help with really bad period symptoms that has nothing to do with having children. It regulates hormones so people have less acne, less cramping, and overall easier lives. Idk why this is a bad thing. If the pill is a bad thing for these reasons, so should diabetes medication and also asprin for migraines. Also so no one is misinformed, birth control in pill form does not protect against any STDs! Better off sticking with a condom 🙂

  5. The birth control is harmful in many ways, Suae. Anything wrong with women’s hormones, acne, etc. should be addressed through nourishing the body, getting the needed nutrients for healing, and finding hormone balance through natural means not through a pill that causes havoc on a woman’s health. Here’s a good article that addresses this problem. I don’t agree with using an IUD since it’s harmful, too, but she has a lot of good information that encourages women to get off the pill ASAP.

  6. Unfortunately I have PCOS which means my ovaries start to produce an egg, but then fail, leading to ovarian cysts that are painful and lead to severe complications if they rupture. I take birth control to prevent the cysts. Luckily I have not suffered side effects (most likely because I am not stopping “a natural process” — the process just never happens for me as in someone without PCOS). Nutrition and supplements can help PCOS, but if you are a thin patient, then PCOS does not have to do with insulin resistance or cortisol mismanagement, so nutrition is not a cure. Some people consider this barrenness, but luckily you can stop birth control and take a fertility enhancing drug in order to help conceive temporarily. This is a tricky dilemma because some say according to God’s will, I would not have children due to PCOS. I have chosen to follow my husband’s desire to have children and thus have used the fertility drug (metformin) to conceive my children. My husband feels we are not preventing children since my eggs wouldn’t make it to my womb anyways. This is of course a very specific situation.

  7. Hormones used as contraception are quite simply against God’s design and purpose for a woman’s body and are an instrument to promote fornication and promiscuity. All of which is exactly what feminists want them to be.

  8. I had friends in my 20’s that told me they felt like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde on the pill. One was convinced she was going crazy. Her doctor tried to convince her the pill was not it, and gave her Prozac, as well! Then, she went absolutely off the deep end. No sleeping, depressed, obsessive, suicidal, etc. I convinced her to see another doctor & suggested she find a pro-life doctor. She balked, but did. He took her off everything and she was a different person in a month. She said it was easier to deal with the natural side effects of being a woman than it was to battle a hormone roller coaster of hell.

    When I went through the menstrual problems, my doctor first suggested the pill. When I told him no, he gave me something different that worked great in regulating my period and mellowing out the pain. But, he also told me that it would be easier to get pregnant because everything was going to be more timely. I’m guessing that’s why most woman opt for the pill instead of available alternatives- even though many probably won’t admit it. That’s just my 2 cents.

  9. The scariest thing for me as a mother is how prevalent and easily accessible birth control pills are. My 13 year old daughter is able to get them through the public health nurse at school, without my knowledge or consent!

  10. If you read the list of side-effects of antidepressants such as Prozac one of them is “suicidal thoughts” and some even include “suicide” as a side-effect!!
    It is crazy, some of the things we are choosing to put into our bodies!
    I know for some, anti-depressants are needed; but they were always intended just for short-term use, to get someone through a rough patch. They were never intended to treat long-term depression. There are much better treatments for depression long-term than pills – CBT, for example.

  11. Yeah, she probably can’t carry a Tylenol in school for cramps, but it’s okay to have body altering hormone pills….lunacy.

  12. There is a lot of misinformation about the pill. The pill DOESN’T regulate your period, it suppress it. In order to have a period you need to ovulate. However the pill suppress ovulation, so there is no period but just a hormonal discharge.
    About PCOS, the pill doesn’t help either. At the root of PCOS there is a blood sugar regulation problem even if you are thin (blood sugar problems are not exclusive to obese or overweight people) so once again the pill doesn’t help, just like it’s doesn’t help acne or hirsutism (caused by hormonal imbalances). It might cover up the symptoms but it’s not the solution

  13. In the fall of 2011, you wrote that you believed birth control was a “gray area.” For example, a woman who was told that child bearing would be a threat to her health could use birth control and it wouldn’t be a sin. Do you still feel that way or have your convictions changed?

  14. To tell you the truth, Kayla, I have a very hard time with birth control. Before the 1930s, the normal family had 6 to 9 children. Now, they have 1 to 2 and there are millions of babies being murdered in the womb every year. Women “decide” how many children they are going to have and few are willing to receive what God calls blessings. Birth control has caused so much more harm than good.
