10,000 Visitors Giveaway!

I recently went over 10,000 visitors to my blog and I wanted to say Thank You to all my readers. If it wasn't for your readership I might be stuck doing the laundry! :)

So, in honor of my 10,000 visitors I am giving away my copy of "Fatherless" by Brian J. Gail.

Meticulously researched, brilliantly crafted, Fatherless takes the reader on an unforgettable journey inside Fortune 500 boardrooms and Madison Avenue screening rooms, behind one-way mirrors in America’s heartland and two-way screens in church confessionals, to the very peak of Ireland’s highest mountain and inside the papal dining room of John Paul II in Rome.

You can gain entries by:
1) Follow my blog and leave a comment on this post letting me know
2) Link to this giveaway post and leave a comment letting me know
3) Inform yourselves about the truth of oral contraceptives, share this
information with a woman or girl you care about and leave a
comment about your experience

Please feel free to leave a comment, even if you own this book already, and share your experience with oral contraceptives.

I will draw the winner at 8 pm Eastern standard time on the 31st of May.

This year, on Mother's Day, the Pill celebrated 50 years of deception and destruction. Janet Smith wrote an excellent article at OSV, check it out if you haven't read it yet. As you can see by my sidebar, I've gathered info on this so called "wonder" drug and it's harmful effects on the women who take it. Of which I was one for quite a few years. Women of our time have been duped. Royally. If you are currently on the pill or patch or NORPLANT or take Depo shots, I encourage you to take a moment and do some research on what it is you are doing to your body. The doctors and counselors won't tell you. If you are considering putting your daughter on this medication please do the research first. Read the little insert that comes with that cute little packet of pills. Google the side effects and the history. It will be time well spent and may even save a life. Yours. Or your daughters.

This subject is touchy, I know. I didn't want to hear it either. I googled The pill and breast cancer and found page after page of medical studies done that prove there is an increased risk, especially for those young women who are using oral contraceptives before their first pregnancy. The distributors of oral contraceptives and even the big Pink ribbon folks, Susan G. Komen foundation, refuse to acknowledge these studies. If they do acknowledge them, they downplay their significance. The scientists conducting the studies are not affiliated with any certain religion, they are not doing "moral" studies. These are scientific facts that the big guys are denying. They don't want you to stop taking the pill. They don't want you to know the truth. Consider this, if you went to the doctor and they prescribed you medication would you not ask what the side effects were? Would you say, "okay doc, whatever." Even more so, would you ask if the medicine was for your child?
Learn. Inform yourselves, family members and friends. Do not be afraid.

I already have the book, so don't enter me, but what a great post, Dawn! We all need to speak out about this-it is far too important!

As an aside, I know Janet from when I attended the University of Dallas! She taught bioethics there! I have a great deal of respect for her!

I was just listening to a Scott Hahn CD about "Why A Protestant Pastor Became catholic" from Lighthouse Cath. Media (www.LighthouseCatholicMedia.com). One of the reason for Scott's decision to become Catholic, was a study in Contraception. You do yourself a favor by following Dawn's advise and researching this topic.
You will be glad you did.Don't enter my post in your Giveaway, I have the book already.

Well, and then there is the other side: I have TWO pill babies. Stopped taking the pill after that -- long ago! Had not heard about the cancer risk. (Re book: no need to enter me, but I did want to say congratulations on your 10,000th visitor!)

Thanks for your comments! I can't seem to give this book away :) It's such a good story too!
