Did you hear today's episode of #TheDaily from @nytimes with Marjorie Dannenfelser and feel 🤯 listening to all the anti-choice nonsense? If so, here's the real deal on abortion in the US and why this essential health service needs to be protected. (1/x)
guttmacher.org/united-states/…
First, let's be clear that abortion patients are largely people like Ms. Dannenfelser: white, hetero, religiously affiliated, and who already have a child. Abortion is an experience shared by 1 in 4 American women, across demographic lines. (2/x) guttmacher.org/united-states/… Image
Second, abortion is a safe, effective procedure needed by many women, even those using contraception.
-18% of pregnancies in 2017 ended in abortion
-51% of abortion patients were using a contraceptive method in the month they became pregnant. (3/x)

What is HPV?

HPV stands for Human Papilloma Virus, it is one of the most common sexually transmitted infection, (STI) that affects both females and males.
There are different types of HPV. Some type causes GENITAL WARTS, others cause CERVICAL CANCER. @NaijaObgyn @ojayfemi
Note that HPV is a different virus from HIV, the one that causes AIDS, and HSV which causes genital herpes.
Although, what they have in common is that they can all be sexually transmitted.

Extended use #contraception and #COVID - some friendly reminders:
1) We know from other examples that sexual activity is likely to increase during periods of isolation, especially youth who are left home unsupervised during school breaks. Talk to your kids about condoms and birth control.
2) Long Acting Contraception (implants and IUDs) are the best ways to prevent pregnancy, and can be used by >98% of women.

In a new study in @CMAJ_Open, we analyzed survey data from @StatCan_eng to understand if #contraception use differed among female youth aged 15-24yrs by household income. bit.ly/2NkAYeU @cartgrac @e_nethery @wvnorman @DrLSchummers @womensresearch @CanPaedSociety /1
A more general summary of the study in the @ubcnews release here: bit.ly/2WPkGxV

Now attempting my first #tweetorial – shout out to @s_l_lake @ubcspph for this idea and her brilliant example /2
Despite Canada’s universal health insurance, we do not have universal coverage of #contraception.

More effective methods like ‘the Pill’ can cost 15-40$
per month. Condoms are usually the cheapest, around $1 each, but are less effective in real-life conditions (85%). /3

2 in 3 of sexually active women wishing to delay or limit getting pregnant stopped using contraception because they feared side effects; had health concerns; &/or underestimated the likelihood of conception: WHO study bit.ly/32N1uD4
This led to 1 in 4 pregnancies being unintended.
Unintended pregnancies may lead to a wide range of health risks for the mother and child, such as malnutrition, illness, abuse and neglect, and even death bit.ly/32N1uD4

Women at high risk of #HIV can use ANY form of reversible #contraception, including progestogen-only injectables, implants and intrauterine devices (IUDs), without an increased risk of HIV infection bit.ly/2UfRvCU
@HRPresearch @WHOSEARO @WHOAFRO @pahowho @WHO_Europe @WHOEMRO @WHOWPRO Correct and consistent use of condoms should be used where there is a risk of sexually transmitted infections, incl. #HIV.
WHO also recommends considering offering pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) in settings where the incidence of HIV is above 3%, as appropriate.

@HRPresearch @WHOSEARO @WHOAFRO @pahowho @WHO_Europe @WHOEMRO @WHOWPRO All women should have access to a wide range of options for #contraception as well as to #HIV prevention and to treatment if needed bit.ly/2UfRvCU

#ClimateAlarmists ignore the fact that all of their propaganda efforts to scare people into submitting to expensive CO2 reduction schemes are having less than no restraining effect on the one & a half degrees of #GlobalWarming over the last two centuries.
vox.com/2015/5/15/8612…
Nothing being done now is having any effect on reducing CO2. We could help Nature do it the old fashioned way by planting a trillion trees. But that takes time.
#ClimateAlarmists prefer preventing the poorest people from trying to stay alive during winter.

Scientists are proving that active geothermal sources around the globe are causing most of the glacier melting & ocean warming. And more of that heat should be harnessed to benefit humanity, as has been done throughout human history.

Les hommes et les femmes ne sont pas égaux ... Face aux médicaments 😉
#SpotPharma @SpotPharma
#Sante #Femme
50% de la population (logique)
Mais seulement 25% de sujet feminin dans les études cliniques et pré-clinique.
Quid des spécificités physiologiques H/F?
#SpotPharma #pharmaco
S'explique par les critères d'exclusions des études:
- Age
- Risque de Grossesse
- Polymed ( contraception ... )

Et pourtant, ces médicaments seront prescrit à des femmes au cours de leurs vies.

Thread: So here on Day 3 of #KavanaughHearings the man in question to take over as the next Supreme Court Justice called birth control an abortifacient - aka 'abortion inducing drug' - when responding to a Q from Cruz abt litigation challenging the ACA birth control benefit 1/
This is a falsehood, junk science, alternative fact, whatever you want to call it, but it is not true, like many other things related to #abortion, #contraception, and #reproductivehealth that are riddled with lies and junk science in order to feed an agenda. 2/
But we continue correcting the false narratives that r peddled abt these #reprohealth realities. There are multiple people stacking the White House who also agree with Kavanaugh...like this nominee that @AllyBoguhn reported for @Rewire_News last year: rewire.news/article/2017/0… 3/
