Birth control pill inventor laments demographic ‘catastrophe’; gets ignored by U.S. mainstream media
Poland, Sweden, the Netherlands, Germany, Spain and Brazil all picked this story up when it broke last week. CNN.com, Foxnews.com and all other mainstream media sites have yet to pick this story up.

Carl Djerassi, an Austrian chemist, was one of three researchers who made the creation of the birth control pill possible decades ago. He now says he did not foresee the destruction that would come of his work, calling it a ‘catastrophe.’

Read the full story

Djerassi won the highest U.S. chemist honor in 1995 from Stanford University. Surely if an award-winning chemist has something to say about a breakthrough he developed, people would pay attention. Apparently not.

Someone else who was ignored

Norma McCorvey - aka “Jane Roe” from Roe vs. Wade - said that she had been the "pawn" of two young and ambitious lawyers (Sarah Weddington and Linda Coffee) who were looking for a plaintiff with whom they could challenge the Texas state law prohibiting abortion in 1973. McCorvey originally claimed that her pregnancy was the result of rape and later said that she had not told the truth. She did not actually abort her baby. She gave her up for adoption.

In 1995, McCorvey was baptized and became an advocate of the pro-life movement. On August 17, 1998 she was received into the Catholic Church by Fr. Frank Pavone, the international director of Priests for Life, and Fr. Edward Robinson in Dallas.

In 2005, in McCorvey v. Hill, she petitioned the Supreme Court to overturn the 1973 decision, arguing that the case should be heard again in light of evidence that the procedure harms women, but that petition was denied.

If mainstream media and the rest of the culture of death won’t listen to the people who started us on this path, who will they listen to?

Your thoughts?
