  • A lowered probability of pregnancy in females in the USA aged 25–29 who received a HPV vaccine...

    06/13/2018 10:36:43 AM PDT · by Antoninus · 47 replies
    ABSTRACT Birth rates in the United States have recently fallen. Birth rates per 1000 females aged 25–29 fell from 118 in 2007 to 105 in 2015. One factor may involve the vaccination against the human papillomavirus (HPV). Shortly after the vaccine was licensed, several reports of recipients experiencing primary ovarian failure emerged. This study analyzed information gathered in National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, which represented 8 million 25-to-29-year-old women residing in the United States between 2007 and 2014. Approximately 60% of women who did not receive the HPV vaccine had been pregnant at least once, whereas only 35% of...
  • Christian Colleges Don't Have to Violate Faith, Provide Birth Control Coverage, Oklahoma Court Rules

    A federal court has ruled that four Christian universities based in Oklahoma will not be penalized for refusing to provide health care coverage for the birth control services they consider contrary to their religious beliefs. In 2013, Mid-America Christian University, Oklahoma Baptist University, Oklahoma Wesleyan University, and Southern Nazarene University filed suit against the Obama administration over their mandate that forced most employers, regardless of religious convictions, to provide insurance coverage for abortion-inducing drugs and contraception. A decision released Tuesday by the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma granted relief for the four universities, in large part...

    Henry Sire, the author of the bestselling book “The Dictator Pope” told Gloria.tv the “real reason” why the former Grand Master of the Order of Malta, Fra Matthew Festing, was disavowed by the Holy See. The Order was about to receive a large donation for which the controversial German Grand Chancellor Albrecht Boeselager was the go-between. But Boeselager was suspended by Festing for his role in distributing condoms and abortive hormones. Now, this donation promised to bring benefits also to the Vatican and at least to one high ecclesiastic, “That was more important to them than a question of...

    The speed with which the German population is shrinking seems to be even too much for the statisticians of Destatis, the official German bureau of statistics, who posit that by 2060, with a zero level of net immigration, the German population will have declined to 60.2 million. However, our research team has found out that this number is far too optimistic: in 40 years Germany will have a population of 52.6 million people, a considerable 34% drop from the current 81 million inhabitants, and by the end of the century the native German population, the indigenous people without a migration...

    Some 300 young people from all over the world from different backgrounds and even different religions, gathered this week in Rome to provide advice to an upcoming summit of Catholic bishops on youth, have discussed a wide array of topics, and among other points plan to offer the bishops a frank admission that they simply couldn’t reach consensus on hot-button issues of sexual morality.On Thursday, they debated over a first draft of the document they’re going to present to Pope Francis, who will then pass it on to a Synod of Bishops on youth and discernment that will take place...

    Danish researchers have found there are approximately 13 additional breast cancer cases for every 100,000 women who use hormonal contraception for one year. Women who use hormonal birth control pills and other forms of contraceptives have a small but increased risk of developing breast cancer, a new study from Denmark has found — the latest in a string of dangerous side-effects researchers have discovered about the risks of hormonal contraceptives. The study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, followed 1.8 million Danish women for an average of more than 10 years. Of those women, researchers identified 11,517 cases...

    As we watch Roy Moore thumping his Bible to defend himself from accusations of child molestation, let me toss out a verbal hand grenade: To some degree, liberals practice the values that conservatives preach. This is complicated terrain with lots of exceptions, and the recent scandals involving Harvey Weinstein, Louis C.K. and Al Franken underscore that liberals can be skunks as much as anyone else. Yet if one looks at blue and red state populations as a whole, it’s striking that conservatives champion “family values” even as red states have high rates of teenage births, divorce and prostitution. In contrast,...

    And they celebrate President Trump’s decision to roll back the contraception mandate. If we believe the social elites, it’s truly a trying time to be a woman in America. Just last November, millions of us were coerced by our own deeply embedded (very deeply, in my case) loathing of our womanhood to vote against Hillary Clinton. And now, just as we’ve really started getting our voices back — albeit through the trope of silent protests based on a television show not exactly representative of American society — that nefarious squad in the White House has turned the screw and ended...

    The New York Times ^ | October 6th 201 | The Editorial Board
    Under the guise of protecting religious freedom and moral sensibilities, the Trump administration is making it harder for women to get access to birth control. On Friday, it rolled back an Obama-era rule requiring most employers to provide their employees with birth control coverage without co-payments. The mandate, established under the Affordable Care Act, has helped millions of women avoid unwanted pregnancy by eliminating out-of-pockets costs for contraception. Under new rules, the Departments of Health and Human Services, Treasury and Labor will make it easier for employers to deny contraception coverage if they have a “religious or moral objection” to...

    RUSH: There are three stories out there that are literally going to excite Trump’s base going into the weekend. Let me give you the headlines. Number one. “Trump to Announce He Will Decertify the Iranian Nuclear Deal.” This is the U.K. Independent. You know what’s interesting about that? All week long we have been hearing the opposite. We have been hearing that Trump is regretfully going to certify it a second time and that Trump really doesn’t want to but the generals and others in his administration are forcing him, influencing him to do it. Folks, if you don’t instinctively...

    Re-interpreting the Church’s teaching against contraception in light of Pope Francis’s teaching on marriage and family “would cause massive doctrinal and pastoral damage” to the Church, a moral theologian in Rome is warning.  Father George Woodall, who teaches moral theology at the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum in Rome, outlined what he called “grave” concerns about a papal commission recently set up by Pope Francis that will, he says, “re-examine Humanae vitae (HV) in the light of Amoris laetitia.” The article was published on the National Catholic Register September 12.  Pope Paul VI’s 1968 encyclical Humanae Vitae taught that “each and...

    In the 1980s, I had a boss who had gotten a masters degree in psychology from New York University. He was a brilliant man; could have been a doctor. He told me a story that explains much of what we see in society today. It seems that while doing his graduate work in the early 1960s, he had to do research on lab rats, which were given the synthetic hormones used in the then new birth control pills. The results, he told me, showed that the grandchildren of these lab rats would have high rates of homosexual behaviors. From what...

    As a psychiatrist, the recent false accusations from Rome against faithful Catholics reminds me of couples preparing to divorce. False accusations of hostility, divisiveness and hatred occur not infrequently in marriages with high levels of conflict and with impending separation or divorce. When of an extremely severe nature, such anger can lead to demonizing a spouse in an effort to undermine the trust of the children in that spouse and to obtain their loyalty instead. This pathological behavior is referred to as parental alienation and is clearly psychologically damaging to Catholic youth, spouses and families. Spouses who make false accusations against...

    Beware the Bergoglian “Working Group”! by Christopher A. Ferrara June 30, 2017 Writing for Corrispondenza Romanza (translation mine), Roberto de Mattei reports the latest twist in the affair of the "secret commission" to "reinterpret" Humanae Vitae. "In the Vatican," he writes, "this rumor is circulating. A collaborator [of Pope Bergoglio] asked him if it is true that there exists a commission to 'reinterpret' Humanae Vitae, and he is said to have responded: 'It's not a commission, it's a working group.'" "This does not involve merely linguistic artifice to hide the truth," de Mattei continues, "but word games that reveal how...

    Has CNN found their new Sandra Fluke poster child for “free” birth control? On Monday, CNN posted a real “tear jerker” tale about a married couple fearing they would not longer be able to get prescriptions for birth control if the GOP’s health care bill passed in the Senate because it would shut down their local Planned Parenthood clinic. Ariana and Kevin Gonzalez told CNN that they would have to resort to going to Mexico to get the contraceptives they need, since the new bill would likely shut down their local clinic because of slashed government funding. Instead of taking an...

    Bergoglian Apocalypse Update: "Secret" Commission To "Reinterpret" Humanae Vitae Based on Amoris Laetitia by Christopher A. Ferrara June 16, 2017 The redoubtable Roberto De Mattei, a courageous opponent of the destructive advance of Bergoglianism, has confirmed the existence of a secret commission tasked by Pope Bergoglio to find a way around the constant teaching of the Church on the intrinsic evil of contraception, affirmed by Paul VI in Humanae Vitae. Prof. De Mattei reveals that Monsignor Gilfredo Marengo is “the coordinator of the commission nominated by Pope Francis to ‘re-interpret’ the encyclical Humanć Vitć by Paul VI, in the light of Amoris laetitia,...

However, we should look positively on all those initiatives, such as that of professor Marengo of the John Paul II Institute, which aim at studying and deepening this document in view of the 50th anniversary of its publication,” Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia told CNA.Vatican reporter...
