Quote of the Day: Your uterus is a “graveyard for lots and lots of little babies”

birth control kills babies

Nope, they really don’t.

Talk radio host Kevin Swanson has, um, a theory:

I’m beginning to get some evidence from certain doctors and certain scientists that have done research on women’s wombs after they’ve gone through the surgery, and they’ve compared the wombs of women who were on the birth control pill to those who were not on the birth control pill. And they have found that with women who are on the birth control pill, there are these little tiny fetuses, these little babies, that are embedded into the womb. They’re just like dead babies. They’re on the inside of the womb. And these wombs of women who have been on the birth control pill effectively have become graveyards for lots and lots of little babies.

My favorite part is that the hosts go on to say that “people are a little split” on the issue and so they want to speak to “both sides of the table.” Ah, yes. “He said, she said” journalism at its finest. On the one hand, OMG TINY DEAD BABIES. On the other, SCIENCE. Who’s to say??

    Guess this guy slept through the part of sex-ed that talks about the delightful few days a woman has called “Menstruation”. Y’know — when she sheds her uterine lining and any unfertilized eggs (which stayed unfertilized and never became fetuses BECAUSE of the pill) and thus, has nothing in her uterus except the uterine cells.
