So, my majorly Christian mother-in-law send this to me. She’s sweet, and not trying to do us any harm, but really this is a fat sack of bullshit. I mean, there’s a high, wafting scent of Creationist panic in this email, not to mention that it’s all FALSE. The snopes link at the bottom of the email disproves the ENTIRE point of this email, which is that not having your period is against God’s plan and WILL KILL YOU! Why post a Snopes link with your hysterical chain email if that link will completely bust your myth? Several times over, and on every single point you try to make? The answer: because people who send chain emails are stupid fucking pricks with an agenda, who have a singular distaste for fact-checking. Worse yet, is that their tissue-thin agenda exploits a dead girl probably against her wishes, as said deceased woman was a young doctor and probably knew better than all of the garbage non-facts in this email. And people who BELIEVE chain emails? Too. Sad. For. Words. Not to mention, that the woman who sent me this layer cake of medical FALLACY is herself a Registered Nurse. QUESTION MARK/EXCLAMATION POINT?! Put on your tinfoil bishop’s hat, pull your thigh-high farming boots on, and get ready to wade in a wild river of fecund bovine feces after the jump.

Subject: FW: birth control pills- Very Important – NOT A JOKE

All birth control pills carry risks, as does a normal pregnancy. The pill described below may be worse than others. I would not want this to happen to either of you.
