How the Pill Kills Women

The birth control pill and other birth control products can and have killed women not only in the United States, but all over the world. Oftentimes the pill leads to cardiovascular problems which can result in death.

Studies show that most women who have died from the use of the pill or other birth control products have died from blood clots, heart attacks, or pulmonary embolisms. As you can see on our side effects link, the pill also causes many other serious problems such as cancer, pelvic inflammatory disease, depression and much more.

We must educate American women because so many people are telling them, “Taking the pill is simple, safe and convenient.” 1

Simple? Sure.

Convenient? Depends.

Why is it that Julie Hennessey, a 31-year-old Irish woman, died of a blood clot after taking the birth control pill? The pill caused her to develop deep vein thrombosis. 2

What about Ashley Lewis, a 17-year-old high school junior from St. Louis, Missouri? Ashley died after developing a blood clot in her lung, because she was wearing the birth control patch for six months. 3

And let’s not forget about...

Tanya Hayes, a 24-year-old Australian woman who died from a pulmonary embolism because of the combination of the birth control pill Yasmin and another drug, Accutane. 4

A 20-year-old healthy woman suffered heart arrest in bed after she had been taking oral contraceptives for two years. This young woman had first developed an increase in dyspnoea (difficulty breathing); she also had lower back pain. She was first diagnosed with asthma, but was later admitted to the hospital with severe dyspnoea, cyanosis (blueness of the skin) and immeasurable blood pressure. She experienced a severe double pulmonary embolism and died. 5

A 24-year-old mother of two children had been taking oral contraceptives for several years and had been doing so up to one month before having an operation. This young mother died seven days after the operation. It was determined that she had an increased risk of postoperative venous thrombosis, due to taking the oral contraceptives. 6

Zakiya Kennedy, an 18-year-old fashion student from New York who hoped to be a model, died after using the patch. 7

A 32-year-old non-smoking woman died after having a massive pulmonary embolism. She had been taking a birth control pill during the last three years of her life. The woman did not smoke, and while she had been on the pill, her liver had also been affected prior to her death. 8

Lakesha Smith, 26, delivered a premature baby at only 24 weeks, but the baby died only two hours after delivery. Smith began wearing the patch after she gave birth. After three weeks on the patch, Smith had seizures and a stroke, and she now lives with permanent injuries. 9

Monica Johnson, 41-year-old mother from New Jersey, suffered a pulmonary embolism and died after using the patch for less than a year. 10
