They Are Coming for Your Birth Control: Radio Host Claims Your Womb is Full of Tiny Dead Baby Corpses

Kevin Swanson. (Addicting Info)

Think that anti-choice politicians and activists aren't trying to outlaw contraception? Think again. Follow along in an ongoing series that proves beyond a doubt that they really are coming for your birth control.

Sometimes, I like to add a little commentary to these "hey, they really want to take away your birth control" posts. But it is possible that we've finally found one to which, literally, no additional comment can be made.

Via RightwingWatch, it seems that talk show host Kevin Swanson has talked to "some doctors" who believe that if you take birth control, tiny little dead babies are simply hanging around, embedded into the lining of your womb.

Swanson: I’m beginning to get some evidence from certain doctors and certain scientists that have done research on women’s wombs after they’ve gone through the surgery, and they’ve compared the wombs of women who were on the birth control pill to those who were not on the birth control pill. And they have found that with women who are on the birth control pill, there are these little tiny fetuses, these little babies, that are embedded into the womb. They’re just like dead babies. They’re on the inside of the womb. And these wombs of women who have been on the birth control pill effectively have become graveyards for lots and lots of little babies.

Now, I'm not usually one to feel the need to go all Biology 101 and point out that even if somehow there were tiny mini babies stuck in your uterus, they would come out when you menstruate since THAT'S THE WHOLE POINT OF MENSTRUATION. Because obviously, whatever school Swanson attended must have not only skipped over the entirety of sex ed, but likely a full spectrum of basic science classes as well.

Oh, wait. He was homeschooled. And now he is a leader in the homeschool movement. And his radio show is "the world’s largest homeschooling and Biblical worldview program that reaches families across the US and in over 80 countries."

So, hold onto your pills, folks, because Swanson and his ilk are coming for your birthcontrol, as well as your right to an education that allows you to comprehend basic bodily functions.

they learn real science just like everyone else.

Quoting mikiemom:


Because this man is leading a homeschool movement. I'm sorry but your statement proves why homeschooling is wrong, These poor children never have a chance to learn REAL science - Not all homeschool but the ones who are taught these wacko religious right agendas.

Quoting joyfullem:

Why attack homeschoolers because somebody is an idiot and was homschooled?  I homeschool, I was homeschooled and I do not believe in hormonal BC BUT I know that even if it were killing fertilized eggs they wouldn't be mini dead babies lol they would be embryos with no bones, organs or the like.

No actually if you teach creationism you do not teach real science. There needs to be standards in place. Certain criteria that children need to know and there has to be a guard against teaching this crazy ass bullshit that this man in the post is spewing.

What in my post says I teach creationism? I do believe in the bible and would teach that to my kids regardless of homeschooled or not. Homeschoolers are still required that their kids pass standardized tests.  We teach it all but in all fairness my kids are 3 and 5 so we are not even close to that yet.

I read the original post but you quoted my post saying that I agree that this person is a nut but that doesn't mean that all homeschoolers should be attacked.
