I've just seen a warm 'n fuzzy pharmaceutical TV commercial, whose voice-over begins, "If you could have fewer periods, life could be a whole lot nicer".
It happens that there is one perfectly natural way for reproductive-age women to have fewer periods and still remain both alive and female: Pregnancy/lactation. That's in fact the very opposite of what, apparently, some reproductive-age women desire.
Romans 1:26 is apropos: "...even their females changed the natural use to that contrary to nature".
I'm baffled by women -and men- who submit to drugs and procedures they'd loudly protest if perpetrated upon pets or wildlife. "Learn how life can get a whole lot nicer", ends the ad/says the serpent. If a woman's "life get[s] a whole lot nicer" by chemical defeminization (of unknown long-term consequences), then what is meant by "Life"? If by "Life" is meant that which increases in quality ("niceness") in proportion to its involving assaults against nature, then what is Death? What is Nature? What is Health?
I'm here writing for the website of a brilliant Doctor of Naturopathy, representing one of two philosophies of medicine: The one pursuing natural health, preventative measures, and "holistic" lifestyle views. As for the other philosophy, it gets wackier and wackier. And the more vehemently consumers demand and accept its "innovations", the more stridently they lobby for kindness to desert rats, protection of wildlife habitats, and anti-vivisection legislation. Sure: Why experiment on guinea pigs when you can BE one?
