Bayer…can you hear me???

Because the drug company’s media nerd…is making it really clear that you shouldn’t panic.

If you panic and go off of this birth control, there will be a baby epidemic.

Seriously? Are you fucking kidding me here?

This morning when I was watching the news, they did a story on this.

The guy addressed everything except the fact that 23 Canadian women have died from taking these pills. That we know of. There are bound to be more.

He forgot to mention that the chance of getting blood clots while on Yaz birth control pills, is as many as three in 10,000 women while the chance on an older type birth control pill is one in 10,000.

In case you didn’t know. Blood clots will kill you.

What I don’t think the big drug companies understand, is that we are not stupid. We are paying attention. And we don’t fucking trust you already.

We know that if we stop taking our birth control pills because they can possibly, well…kill us, that we should have an alternate plan. They seem oblivious the fact that most of us don’t want to die. Most of us don’t want side effects at all from a pill that is supposed to prevent children from being conceived, because we have to take them every. single. day.

Have these big companies got so much money that they would rather see women dying instead of going off of these pills? You bet your ass they do.

If you think that Monsanto and Bayer aren’t in bed together on some level. You would be wrong. This was the first article I found click here to read, I would dig deeper, but it is late and I am tired, and disheartened by the stupidity that surrounds us in this day and age.

I am exhausted with the fact that we are allowing companies like this to run our world, I don’t know how to change it, or even where to start, but I know I am sick of it and I want to be part of the change. Everyday I learn more, every day I am a little more afraid. For all of us, for our children.

Gone are the days when I just assume that the rules are in place that will protect us, protect our children. That will make sure that our food is safe, that the drugs that we are putting in our bodies, have been tested. Really tested.

Gone are the days when you don’t ask questions, when you turn your back and say it’s not your problem.

It is your problem. Our problem.

If your daughter is on these pills, if you are…do some research…ask your doctor questions and stop taking them.

Be afraid. Panic.

That is what will motivate you to do what you need to do. That is what is going to have to happen for change to start. People have to start standing up for themselves, doing research and fight for the right to be healthy, to eat foods that have not been genetically modified, to not take birth control pills that kill us and our children.

Let’s all start realizing that our well being is in our own hands, the big companies that run this world don’t give a shit about you. They don’t care that your daughter just fell down in the middle of a normal day and died because of a birth control pill she took, that was deemed to be safe, and yet killed her in only five weeks. I am pretty sure the warning label does not have, may cause death, in the side effects.

Let’s all pay more attention and learn to say no to big corporation bullying. Let’s stand up for ourselves and our families. Make different choices and really pay attention more.

Even one baby step can make a difference, a post…a comment…an action of any kind, so they know people are paying attention and no, we don’t think it’s okay.

I know it’s not much, I know the changes I make will be small. But at least they will be something, a wee voice in a big field, yelling for help. Just like Horton hears a who, maybe one day…somehow, someone will hear us.
