Pell on Pill a Piss-take?

September 24, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Has the Australian newspaper lost any sense of decency or has it been concealing a wicked sense of humor all this time?

In today’s Australian, they publish a piece by Catholic Cardinal George Pell’s ghost-writer arguing that the contraceptive pill has been bad for women over it’s 50-year history.

I will address the substance of the matter tomorrow by seeing whether exactly five minutes’ research on Google is enough to debunk each and every lame argument used by Pell’s ghostwriter.

In the meantime, there is a glaring judgment issue here: on what basis does the Australian think its readers need a lecture about sex from a Catholic priest, let alone sex involving females, let alone females old enough to menstruate?

    It’s worth checking out a recent BMJ research paper that found ‘oral contraception was not associated with an increased long term risk of death in this large UK cohort (46,112 women); indeed a net benefit was apparent.’ BMJ – Mortality among contraceptive pill users: cohort evidence from Royal College of General Practitioners’ Oral Contraception Study.
