As I was reading chapter 9 about how oral contraceptives work, I started pondering the question on why are we using synthetic hormones to alter ovulation? In the beginning...Adam was created - after a while he was lonely - and GOD created a help mate (Eve). Both Adam and Eve were the first humans on earth, and they began creating and inhabiting the earth. I do not think we as humans are suppose to interfere with a woman's period, due to this is suppose to happen naturally.
As modern technology have evolved we see synthetic oral hormones in the form of a pill, and using it to trick the body into thinking that everything is still on course. What a huge injustice we have caused to women who have a huge role in creating life.Children are a gift from GOD, and we see thousands of women using oral contraceptives to eliminate; cramping, bloating, inconveniences, bleeding, and to prevent the ability to bring forth a new life.
According to doctor Rock on page 188, oral contraceptives are a way of imitating the natural processes of the female reproductive system. I would like to know what is his definition of natural and synthetic. There is nothing natural about taking oral contraceptives to prevent pregnancies, to produce a period that really is just a synthetic (not real) period, and to allow the withdrawal of the hormone in her body by giving her 7 days of a placebo pill. I wish someone would invent a monthly hormonal pill for men in altering the progesterone in their reproductive system. Oh, wait, someone did invent a hormonal pill for men, "Viagra."
I am not male bashing, but women have received a huge dose of "ungratefulness." Oral contraceptives have been associated with a reduction in ovarian and endometrial cancers, but not breast cancer. The number 1 leading causes of cancers in women is breast cancer, and so not only are oral contraceptives used to prevent pregnancies, but it seem to have 2 faces.
