.- A new analysis of a studies on birth control pills demonstrates that there is no evidence that the pill cuts the risk of heart diseases. The same studies also falsely claimed that there is no link between the pill and increased risk of breast cancer. The new analysis was backed by the director of the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, who said the research was flawed. American Life League President Judie Brown said she is not surprised by the new new analysis.

She questions why the federal government readily endorsed the Women's Health Initiative study without checking the results, confirming the data and reviewing the processes used.

"It's high time for the federal government to take a hard look at the birth control pill,” said Brown. “It's time for a realistic examination of what the pill does to pre-born human beings during their first week of life, and what it does to women, particularly the problems it creates for them later in life.”

She urged Dr. Barbara Alving, acting director of the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, to commence a full investigation immediately.
