´Trump effect´ drove rise in women getting
long-acting contraception: Rates soared 22%
after 2016 election, new data reveal

Daily Mail [UK], by Mary Kekatos

Original Article

More women began using long-acting reversible contraceptives after the 2016 election, a new study finds. Researchers say there was a 22 percent rise in women who had intrauterine devices (IUDs) and implants inserted in the 30 days after President Donald Trump was elected. During his campaign, and while in office, the president vowed to roll back the birth control mandate nationwide and to cut federal funding for contraceptives and abortions. The team, from Brigham and Women´s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, believes this led many women to fear they wouldn´t have have access to birth control and wanted to ensure they

These people are just plain nuts. They say contraception is good (except for minorities), but they also celebrate killing the unborn. Whichever facet you examine, Donald Trump is a tyrant who victimizes women.

In related causation news:
- increase in knowledge of physics linked to presence of yellow paint on buses. In a surprise announcement, the increased amount of yellow paint currently used on buses, particularly those used for schools, has been directly tied to advances in physics, including quantum mechanics.
- decrease in pirates thru-out the Caribbean has pushed the overall standard of living in China upward. Less theft in the warm, humid climate of the region around Cuba has seen the fall of the Monarchy in China, the introduction of electricity, and the use of safer water sources.

Which women? Unmarried? Whites, minorities? Income, Age, etc.

Thirty days isn´t a long time, so when were those operations first asked for?. Was it before Election Day, when Hillary was expected to win, or after Election Day?

Maybe the study answers those questions but in this article the Daily Mail is clearly just Trump Bashing.

If they´re blaming this on TDS, then this is a good thing because it means nutty leftists aren´t reproducing as much as conservatives are (not that conservatives always produce conservative children, but there´s a much better chance of conservative children following in their parents´ footsteps than nutso lefty children switching).

Over the past two years, there have been aggressive TV ads for some sort of IUD.
The dialogue is that of a pretty, young woman, no wedding ring, hugging her man, and thinking ´did I take my pill?´
Then she relaxes and smiles, remembering that her IUD is in place.
Could such advertising have an impact on lower pill use? Of course.

This wasn’t what Duke or Knicks fans wanted to see. Zion Williamson suffered a right knee injury 33 seconds into Wednesday’s game against rival North Carolina at Cameron Indoor Stadium in Durham, N.C. Williamson grabbed his knee in pain after his Nike sneaker tore apart as he slipped and fell to the floor and had to head to the bench. Williamson, widely expected to be the first pick in the NBA draft, was soon taken to the locker room for observation. Williamson, the ACC’s second-leading scorer at 22.4 points per game, has established himself as arguably the most exciting player

Archaeologists have discovered the long-lost prehistoric tools employed to quarry the original standing stones used in the construction of the earliest stone-built phase of Stonehenge. Excavations in an ancient quarry in southwest Wales have so far yielded 15 sandstone wedges used to break off large numbers of natural stone columns from the quarry’s bedrock. They have also discovered V-shaped slots in two columns that had been earmarked for use—but never removed. (Snip) All the tools appear to have been made elsewhere from stones that could not have been found in or around the quarry itself.

A scientist who raised early alarms about climate change and popularized the term "global warming" has died. Wallace Smith Broecker was 87. The longtime Columbia University professor and researcher died Monday at a New York City hospital, according to a spokesman for the university´s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. Kevin Krajick said Broecker had been ailing in recent months. Broecker brought "global warming" into common use with a 1975 article that correctly predicted rising carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere would lead to pronounced warming.

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan says Rep. Ilhan Omar merely spoke the truth and should not have apologized for saying Israel and the U.S. Jewish lobby use money to control U.S. politicians. Indeed, the black-nationalist anti-Semite chided the Minnesota Democrat who apologized last week for playing into anti-Semitic tropes about supposed Jewish control of banking and finance. Mr. Farrakhan praised “Miss Omar from Somalia. She started talking about the Benjamins and they are trying to make her apologize. Sweetheart, don’t do that.” (Tweet) Addressing himself to the Muslim congresswoman, Mr. Farrakhan told her at his annual

School girls are too afraid to use unisex toilets over fears of ´period shaming´ from boys and ´sexual harassment´, campaigners warn. A growing number of schools are ditching separate sex loos claiming they are not inclusive to transgender children and are a breeding ground for bullying. But some girls are avoiding going to the toilet during school hours because of cruel taunts from boys and a lack of privacy, according to the Daily Express. And some girls even avoid drinking water so that they will not have to use the toilet. A parent of a secondary school girl

Quintana Roo state prosecutors said in a statement that the attack took place in a club called La Kuka, which is located on a main avenue in central Cancun about 4 miles (6 kilometers) away from the seaside tourist hotel zone.

Empire star Jussie Smollett paid two men to stage an assault against him which he later claimed was an attack motivated by racism and homophobia, investigators in Chicago now believe. The two men involved in the alleged hoax are now fully cooperating with law enforcement, CNN is reporting on Saturday. On January 29, two men ´yelled out racial and homophobic slurs´ while attacking Smollett, the actor told police. One of the assailants tied a rope around his neck and poured an unknown chemical substance on him, Smollett claimed at the time. That narrative, however, is now under serious scrutiny by investigators.

Some joined in with the chants and held placards reading: ‘Education not indoctrination.’ One child carried a handwritten sign which said: ‘Let kids be kids.’ The protest comes amid a campaign against lessons on equality at the school, with parents in the predominantly Muslim

The U.S. Transportation Department announced Tuesday it would attempt to cancel $929 million in federal grant funds for California’s troubled high-speed rail project. The move marks an escalation in the war between President Trump and California in the days since Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a rethinking of the bullet train project after years of cost overruns. The Transportation Department also announced it was “actively exploring every legal option to seek the return from California of $2.5 billion in federal funds.” It’s unclear whether it has the legal authority to do so, and California would probably oppose such a move.In a

He has committed perjury on multiple occasions, participated in an attempt to alter the outcome of a national election, and colluded with other rogue bureaucrats to remove a duly elected president from power. But there is a bright and shiny silver lining to this dingy cloud of deep state skullduggery: Donald Trump still resides in the White House while Hillary Clinton stumbles around her Chappaqua mansion in a muumuu hugging a fifth of Glenfiddich.

Instead, the apparent hoax is turning out to be a warning to 2020 Democratic candidates about singling out people for martyrdom, including the woman who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett M.
