Religious Right Talk Show: Wombs of Women on Birth Control "Embedded With Dead Babies"

Right Wing Watch brings us what has to be one of the creepiest, most astoundingly insane right wing statements about contraception you will ever hear, from evangelical caveman and talk radio host Kevin Swanson, who informs his audience that scientists researching the wombs of women who use birth control pills (wombologists?) have discovered that these women have dozens, maybe hundreds, who knows, possibly thousands of little dead babies embedded in their wombs.

Generations Radio host Kevin Swanson, who last week delved memorably into feminist theory, tells us this week that "certain doctors and certain scientists" have researched the wombs of women on the pill and found "there are these little tiny fetuses, these little babies, that are embedded into the womb...Those wombs of women who have been on the birth control pill effectively have become graveyards for lots and lots of little babies."

Swanson: I'm beginning to get some evidence from certain doctors and certain scientists that have done research on women's wombs after they've gone through the surgery, and they've compared the wombs of women who were on the birth control pill to those who were not on the birth control pill. And they have found that with women who are on the birth control pill, there are these little tiny fetuses, these little babies, that are embedded into the womb. They're just like dead babies. They're on the inside of the womb. And these wombs of women who have been on the birth control pill effectively have become graveyards for lots and lots of little babies.

Peeples: We've actually heard on both sides of that. We're researching that and want to make sure we speak correctly to that in our second film. But we have medical advice on both sides of the table there, so we want to make sure that we communicate that properly.

Swanson: It would seem, and I realize that people are a little split on what are all the effects of the birth control pill, but it would seem that there's a tremendous risk in the use of it for the life of children.
