Discarded Birth Control Pills Harming Environment?

Why has this science not been reported too much?

For some years now, reports have been growing from around the world that the massive amounts of synthetic birth control hormones being pumped into the water systems through sewage outflow is changing the sex of fish stocks. Recently, scientists have also begun to warn of the possible carcinogenic effects of the build-up of estrogenic chemicals in drinking water. 

As early as 2002, the UK Environment Agency warned that fish stocks in British rivers were showing signs of gender ambiguity as a result of high levels of estrogen in the water. A survey of 1,500 fish at 50 river sites found more than a third of males also displayed female characteristics.

Dr. Conrad Daniel Volz from the University of Pittsburgh Center for Environmental Oncology, warned that the rise in steroid hormones in the drinking water in the Pittsburgh area is a threat to health. Numerous studies have shown a link between contraceptive estrogen and hormone problems and some cancers, including testicular cancer.

There are ecoNazis screaming about snowmobiles in Yellowstone, but possible cancer risks in the water and there’s no noise from the environmental activists at all.  Wonder why? 

But scientists and environmental groups are careful to avoid recommending restrictions on artificial contraceptives.

The National Catholic Register, reporting on the issue, quotes George Harden, a board member of the Society of Catholic Social Scientists, saying “If you’re killing mosquitoes to save people from the West Nile virus, you can count on secular environmentalists to lay down in front of the vapour truck, claiming some potential side effect that might result from the spray,” Harden said. “But if birth control deforms fish – backed by the proof of an EPA study – and threatens the drinking supply, mum will be the word.”

Curt Cunningham, water quality issues chairman for the Rocky Mountain Chapter of Sierra Club International, told the Register that people “would not take kindly” to the suggestion of banning or restricting hormonal contraceptives.

“For many people it’s an economic necessity. It’s also a personal freedom issue,” Cunningham said. 

So birth control pills are a personal freedom issue.  But having the government put restrictions on your land to keep some slimy snail in breeding territory isn’t a personal freedom issue?

Your hypocrisy is showing.

Statistics Only the KKK Could Love

Where are the leaders of the black community on the issue that almost half of the babies conceived by blacks are aborted? Do they want their community to disappear? Or are they so wedded to the Party of Abortion that they dare not speak out? If the statistics showed that white people were killing half of all black babies, wouldn’t there be an outcry?

The CDC shows a majority of women who get abortions are white (53 percent)
compared with 35 percent done on African-Americans, 8 percent on women
of other ethnic backgrounds and the race of the woman was unknown
in four percent of the cases.
However, the abortion ratio for black women (472 per 1,000 live births) was
2.9 times higher than the ratio for white women (161 per 1,000).
Examined another way, nearly half of all pregnancies among black women end
in abortion while just 16 percent of pregnancies among white women
end in abortion.
The abortion rate for black women (28 per 1,000 women) was 2.8 times the
rate for white women (10 per 1,000).

Update:
Isn’t it interesting – if you point out that the black population is aborting itself away you are considered to be a racist.

Pigeon Birth Control

From the big cat:

First they came for the PIGEONS.

THEY could just try SHOOTING the damn things- I never was found of SKY RATS.  Actually, it doesn’t really surprise me any that some NYC clown wants to give pigeons BIRTH CONTROL pills.

What shocks me is that nobody’s pushing SEX ED or suggesting passing out little CONDOMS to passing birds.

NYC Taxpayers May Soon Be Funding ‘Pigeon Czar’.

Pigeon enthusiast Albert Sima says the city should forget about plans to bring hawks and falcons to scare pigeons away. He says the city tried that before and it didn’t work. What he likes is the councilman’s proposal to put out pigeon feed that is packed with birth control.

Anyone who believes that New York City has money to waste can certainly point to their pigeon czar as government idiocy personified.
