On December 15, 2003 - ten days before the world paused to celebrate the
birth of a homeless child whose life, death and Resurrection forever altered
the course of human history - the “Food and Drug Administration” (FDA), an
agency of the United States Government, held a public hearing to consider
what was called the “Plan B” Pill. This agency is charged with ensuring that
Americans are protected from harm caused by dangerous drugs or unsafe food.
In this instance, the FDA actually recommended making this lethal chemical
weapon available over the counter without a prescription.
Labeled by its advocates as a “morning after” pill, it was supposed to be
“different” from Mifepristone (RU-486), which induces a miscarriage at any
time after conception. The company that produces the chemical agent
delivered through this pill, Women's Capital Corp. (WCC) claimed that their
“Plan B” pill used “progestin”, a hormone used in contraceptive pills, to
interfere with ovulation or prevent fertilization. However, the weight of
medical evidence clearly disputed the claim. In approximately 75 percent of
cases, this chemical mix is abortifacient, in that it makes the implantation
of human life in the womb impossible. In effect, the “Plan B” Pill is no
different than abortion-inducing medications like RU-486 used to cause
medical abortions, it evicts human life.
It is not as if any of these attempts to distinguish between chemicals which
allegedly prevent fertilization and those that do not really matter in this
barbarism disguised as science. A chemical weapon is a chemical weapon. This
new “pill” essentially denies nascent human life any room at the Inn, the
first home of his or her mothers’ womb. This “Plan B” chemical weapon thus
renders that human life homeless, interrupting “Plan A”, which is life and
safety, nurture, human development and growth that is supposed to take place
in the warmth and nurturing environment of the womb.
“Plan B” was simply one more “legal” direct chemical attack on a unique
human life and, consequently on humanity itself. This so-called
“breakthrough” was one more step in the brutal advance of the contemporary
culture of death and use. Once again persons were viewed as products to be
used rather than unique unrepeatable gifts to be received from the One who
is the source and Giver of all life. New human life, when deemed to be
inconvenient, is now viewed, as some- “thing” to be discarded.
Ironically, these hearings occurred around the time that U.S. military
troops searched for alleged “weapons of mass destruction.” They were ordered
to destroy those chemical weapons before they could cause untold human
tragedy. The very allegation of the existence of such weapons-since
disproved- became the basis for a war which has left thousands dead, maimed,
wounded and forever scarred, physically and emotionally. Yet, our Government
approved the manufacture of chemical weapons at home. These particular
weapons were to be used in a new killing field, the womb. An agency of the
most powerful government on the earth encouraged women to ingest them. The
approval of this chemical weapon amounted to a governmental sanctioning of a
chemical attack on human life in what has become the bloodiest battle field
of our newly “enlightened” age, the mother’s womb.
Now, years after the approval of this chemical weapon, I read an AP report
out of Los Angeles, California with this headline: “Federal health
investigators are baffled: Why have four California women died from a
bloodstream infection after using a controversial abortion pill?” These
deaths occurred from the use of R.U. 486. As I read the report it seemed to
me that the “surprise” must have been feigned. After all, the dangerous
nature of that chemical weapon was very clear to anyone who understands the
human body. Outside of the highly charged atmosphere of efforts to keep
abortion fully accessible, the approval of RU486 for ingestion by women as
some kind of “treatment” would have been quickly denied. It is lethal. Its
sole purpose is to cause the death of the human life within the mother. It
also brings with it serious risks to her own health, beyond those already
caused by the death of the new life that was growing within her.
RU-486 is sold as either Mifeprex or mifepristone. Simply put, it is a
chemical weapon being used on the first home of the whole human race. It
involves the swallowing of two “pills” at different times by the mother in
order to end the life of the human child that is growing within her. It is
recommended to be taken up to 49 days after the start of a woman's last
menstrual cycle. The first chemical blocks a hormone that the child needs in
order to make the womb hospitable to his or her residency and development.
The other is then taken to end the child’s life and evict him or her
Our own government, through the Food and Drug Administration, instructs
women to swallow both chemicals in its instructions on how to use this
weapon. However the use of these chemical agents has led to what some call a
refinement in the delivery system. It seems that many abortion clinics and
abortionists are instructing women to insert the second chemical weapon
vaginally in order to ensure that it is effective in its mission - to kill
the human life growing inside the womb.
According to this AP report, the women who died may not have followed their
governments’ directions on how to deliver the chemical agents. So, the
government is investigating whether such a failure to follow their
directions for delivery of the chemicals may have somehow caused their
deaths. The FDA is still allowing this chemical cocktail to stay on the
market. They are updating the warning label to alert women and “doctors” in
more detail as to the possibility of unusual, dangerous infections that are
not always accompanied by fever. The labels on the box already warn about
the risk of bacterial infection, sepsis and death.
Statistics show that more than 460,000 women in the United States alone have
used this chemical weapon mixture on the children in their womb- and on
themselves- since it was invented in France in the 1980s. Assuming that each
of them was only carrying one baby, the numbers of deaths are staggering.
The cause is this chemical warfare on the womb.
Now, on July 29th, out of Geneva Switzerland comes word that the World
Health Organization, through its International Agency for Research on Cancer
(IARC) has declared that Oral contraceptives that combine estrogen and
progestin will be declared as carcinogenic and placed in their Group 1
classification, the highest classification of cancer causing substances.
This kind of contraceptive is the most commonly prescribed form of
artificial contraceptive used by women. Of course the truth concerning the
highly carcinogenic effects of these chemicals has been known by many for a
long time. What is so surprising is that the WHO has finally admitted the
truth concerning this danger. Yet, there was no recommendation given that
these carcinogenic chemicals be withdrawn from the market or that there be
any review of them.
What is happening to women - and to the children in their womb- is horrid.
There is a war on the womb.
