The Lancet Promotes Abortion for Adolescents

The Lancet, known for its medical journal, and highly esteemed at the United Nations, has released a new report, “Our future: a Lancet commission on adolescent health and well-being”, through which it addresses the health of adolescents, the group who “will be the policy makers of 2030”, the year the SDGs conclude. The report begins by acknowledging that today’s youth are the “largest generation of 10 to 24 year olds in human history” reflecting concerns by population control elites for the reproductive potential of what is called the “youth bulge”. Access to abortion is cited throughout the report and listed under various categories. Abortion is described as an ‘essential health-care response’ for all girls with the report declaring, “Health services should provide all essential health-care responses, including modern contraception and safe abortion regardless of age, marital, and socioeconomic status; providers should have the skills to provide confidential and non-judgmental care.” Abortion is included as ‘accessible preventive health care’ which is described as: “Care should include guarantees of preventive care to all sexually active adolescents, maternal health care when necessary, and access to affordable modern contraception, particularly long-acting reversible contraceptives; if unwanted pregnancy does occur provide access to legal, safe abortion.” Abortion is also listed as a ‘health service intervention’ detailed as: “Health service interventions involve the provision of information and counselling, contraception, prenatal and postnatal care and delivery, abortion services and post-abortion care, treatment and prevention of sexually transmitted infections, HIV testing and counselling, and care for sexual and gender-based violence.” PNCI notes that it is regrettable that the Lancet commission does not hesitate in promoting access to abortion,...

Adverse Health Effects of Homosexuality (update July 2013)

The Negative Health Effects of Homosexuality UPDATE: Men Having Sex with Men [MSM] Are At Far Greater Risk for Cancer, STDs, Infections: Systematic Review As the homosexual movement makes gains in public opinion and politics, the dissenting voice of science continues to unearth health problem after health problem associated with gay sexual behavior. A systematic review of PubMed articles dealing with homosexual activity (MSM) and cancer rates found that rates for various cancers skyrocketed for men engaging in homosexual activity.  The study, titled “Cancer and men who have sex with men: a systematic review,” was published in The Lancet last December: http://www.thelancet.com/journals/lanonc/article/PIIS1470-2045%2812%2970347-9/abstract Researchers examined 47 reports that merited inclusion in their study of sexual orientation and cancer rates. They found that the majority of the reports agree that MSM is a significant risk factor for cancer. Researchers found that a dozen of the 47 studies focused on the risk factors for anal cancer, including HPV infection in the anal canal. The studies indicated that “not being exclusively heterosexual significantly increased the risk of anal cancer.” One report found that “anal HPV infection and abnormal anal cytology were highest in boys with a homosexual or bisexual orientation.” A French report of HIV-clinic outpatients found that “MSM had a greater prevalence of HPV infection than did heterosexual men who injected drugs” (85 percent vs 46 percent), that MSM were found to be “infected with several types of HPV [more often] than were heterosexual men who injected drugs” (61 percent vs 26 percent), and that “more MSM had cytologic abnormalities than did men who injected drugs” (72 percent vs 36 percent).

The Added Toll of Bereavement (1/03)

A recent study showed that women who had abortions were at an increased risk of dying, especially in the first 2 years. This new study shows the powerful effect of the loss of a child. Although not directly touching on abortion, it would seem that this would be compounded in abortion since the mother herself participates in the loss of her child. N. Valko, R.N.    At Risk: The Added Toll of Bereavement The death of a child often shortens the life of the mother, a Dutch study has found. The study, which was released last week [1/03] by The Lancet, also found an increased risk of early death among fathers, but a far smaller one. The study compared mortality rates over 18 years among a group of 21,000 parents who had lost children below the age of 18 and 293,000 who had not. Researchers from the Danish Epidemiology Science Center found an increase in deaths during the first three years of bereavement, and that most of the increase came from causes other than illness, like suicide or a car crash. The risk was particularly acute among women whose children had died unexpectedly or from something other than illness. In the first three years after the child’s death, those mothers died at a rate almost four times as great as the mothers who had not lost a child. After 10 years, the effect on overall health began to show up, as deaths from natural causes among the bereaved mothers began to exceed those for mothers in the comparison group, the article said.
