The other day I was talking to a friend of mine who runs a clinic in the Midwest. As always, I asked how things are going and he said “the number of women asking for the IUD is going through the roof.” A few days later I saw a report confirming that women are looking for the IUD in record numbers.
Many say that the numbers are going up because women are concerned that when/if the Congress repeals Obamacare, then their birth control will not be covered by insurance. Worse, they are concerned that Congress and Mr. Trump will outlaw birth control altogether – an unlikely event but enough to make some women nervous. So, they are looking for the IUD to cover themselves as it is a form of birth control that can last for many years.
In timely fashion, the website www.IUD.com has reappeared on the scene. This site is the only website that is a directory of doctor’s offices that offer the IUD. It’s a simple website – you just go in and enter your zip code and up come the offices that are near you that offer the device. The manager of the site is now devoting a lot of time to increasing its visibility, using all kinds of Search Engine Optimization techniques that have already had great results. This is great news for women out there who don’t have a regular Ob-Gyn and are looking for the IUD.
Check it out. Spread the word!

As of yesterday, because of the Affordable Health Care Act, every new health insurance policy must include FDA-approved contraceptives without any co-pays or deductibles.
In addition, all new insurance policies must cover women’s preventive care without co-pays or deductibles, including:
An annual well woman preventive care visit with your doctor.
Screening and counseling for domestic violence
Breastfeeding support, supplies, and counseling
Remember these advanced when you vote in November!

Have you ever been to an obstetrician-gynecologist for a pelvic exam and Pap test? If your answer is “no” and you are 21 or older, pick up your phone today and make an appointment with your doctor or a family planning clinic in your area. On the other hand, if your answer is “yes,” then how long has it been since your last Pap smear and pelvic exam? All women should have annual Pap smears beginning at age 21, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Women 21 to 29 should get a Pap every year, then every other year (or as often as your doctor recommends) from ages 30 to 64.

We all know about the war on women’s health that is being waged by the Republican Presidential candidates. I will say that Rick Santorum has at least been consistent all of his political life. He would like to see Planned Parenthood and other reproductive health clinics just disappear. But then there’s Mitt Romney, who as Governor of Massachusetts used to be pro-choice and supported PPFA’s mission. And now, of course, he has done a total reversal.
If Romney gets the presidential nomination, consider that he will try to stop PPFA (and the independent clinics) from not just performing abortions but also breast exams, life saving cervical cancer screenings, testing and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases and offering birth control.
I urge those of you who support women’s health (and who trust women to make their own decisions) to get involved in the presidential campaign. There may be no more important one than this one.

Hello Male Legislators: Women are not Stupid.
When is this stuff gonna end?
Recently, the Oklahoma State Senate approved a bill that would require an abortion doctor to let a woman know that she had a right to hear the heartbeat of the fetus! The bill was approved by a 34 – 8 vote and will soon go to the state House.
Originally, the bill required that women hear the heartbeat before having an abortion, but the bill’s author watered down the measure to secure its passage. So, now it’s “only” optional.
Yet another insult.
Women know the embryo is living.
So, if you hear the heartbeat, what does that prove? It proves that the fetus is alive! Oh revelation! Thank you, oh wise ones, for informing us that we are carrying something that is alive. Indeed, what you failed to realize was that, the reason why women go to get an abortion is because they KNOW the fetus is alive and growing and they don’t want it to live any longer. But, then, we are sooooo stupid, so it’s fortunate that we have you boys around to educate us.
What are you going to do next – take away our vote?

The Virginia legislature has passed legislation requiring women to get an ultrasound before they could have an abortion. Of course, it’s entirely insulting to women to suggest that they need this “help” but that’s only part of the story.
It seems that no one – not even the pro-choice groups – understood that if a woman was contemplating an early abortion, the only way to see the fetus would be to have a vaginal ultrasound! That’s right. It was not until a clever lawyer in the pro-choice movement thought this through a little that the word got out. And now the legislature has gone back to the drawing board.
That’s a very sad commentary on the state of women’s health. In many ways, we are still just afterthoughts.

What in God’s name is going on in the Commonwealth of Virginia?
Last week, the state House and Senate in Virginia passed a bill that requires women to undergo an ultrasound procedure before having an abortion and, in many cases, it would require them to have a transvaginal ultrasound! That’s right, I am not making this up. In many cases, especially early abortions, the doctor would be forced to insert a probe inside the woman’s vagina in order to see the reproductive organs.
Vaginal Probe State Mandated Penetration
The anti-abortion crowd gets more disgusting with each passing year.
