More on the Pill's 50th: the ironclad link between the Pill and AIDS...
(Tim, w/thanks to Kamilla) For many years it's been clear physicians are up to their necks in complicity in the spread of AIDS. Think, for instance, of the refusal of our Surgeon General, longtime Tenth Presbyterian Church of Philly member C. Everett Koop, to quarantine men spreading AIDS when the disease was running like wildfire across our country. The most basic public health measures normally taken in the face of epidemics were anathema to the AIDS lobby, so our number one public health officer chose condoms over quarantines (note particularly pp. 11,12). In fact, with only a few exceptions, pubic health physicians didn't even shut down sodomites' bath houses where the spread of the disease was most deadly.
Since then, physicians have done even less to warn against, or take steps to stop, the destruction of women by AIDS caused by the use of oral contraception. This has been particularly evident in Sub-Saharan Africa where rich nations spend hundreds of millions trying to get poor nations to get their women on oral contraceptives so those women won't bear any more children.
Here's a short excerpt from an article on the subject...
posted on the web site of heroic Stephen Mosher's Population Research Institute:
The best meta-analysis done to date, done by Dr. Chia Wang and her colleagues, surveyed the consensus results of the 28 best published studies since 1985. They found that the “significant association between oral contraceptive use and HIV-1 seroprevalence or seroincidence … increased as study quality increased.” In fact, “Of the best studies, 6 of 8 detected an increased risk of HIV infection associated with OC [oral contraceptive] use.”4
Moreover, Wang's results showed even more of a Pill/HIV link when they limited studies to those conducted on African populations. This is significant for two reasons:
First, sub-Saharan Africa is home to the world's earliest and largest heterosexual HIV/AIDS epidemic, which to date has infected an estimated 22.4 million5 people. This is two-thirds of the total number of infections worldwide.
Second, sub-Saharan Africa has endured decades of contraception-focused population control programs and countless hormonal-contraceptive trials. “Among the six [African] countries hardest hit by the HIV/AIDS epidemic … two in three users in the six countries rely on the OC (oral contraceptives) or injectables,”6 said Iqbal Shah of the World Health Organization.
Likewise, Thailand, praised for a contraceptive prevalence of 79.2% in 2000 and upwards of 70% today, is a land where, “More than one-in-100 adults in this country of 65 million people is infected with HIV.”7 Among Thai women, “Oral contraception is the most popular method.”8, 9
On the other hand, Japan's HIV rate is, at 0.01%, one of the lowest in the world.10 In this context, it is important to note that the birth control pill was illegal in Japan until 1999, and even today only 1% of Japanese women use oral contraception. Similarly, the predominantly Catholic Philippines, with a longstanding popular resistance to contraception, boasts an HIV “prevalence rate of only 0.02%.”11
