Contracepting the Ecosystem

"Contraceptives are polluting women's bodies and the environment, but who cares?" writes Cristina Alarcon, noting the "tell-tale signs that a particular type of pollutant, the endocrine disruptor, is wreaking havoc on our ecosystems" — An ecological blind spot.

I have tried to point this situation out for some time. I gave a paper on the topic at the Pro-life Symposium in Dayton, Ohio a couple of years ago on the issue of contraceptive endocrine disruption in the environment.

I pointed out that, even with no other effects proven, that it is still a significant impactor to the ecosystem that also affects the economy of Ohio and the US, which spends millions on outdoor activities.

But on a larger point, medicine, which derives from the Latin ars medicina, the art of healing, is the development of drugs and other techniques to heal disease. Contraception is not a "healing" art, but poison, since it's purpose is to curtail the proper physiological function of the female body.

Excellent points, especially that last one, which shows why contraception should not be covered under any medical plan, especially a public one.
