Jim Bob Duggar Claims Pill Can Cause Miscarriage
[su_right_ad]The father of 19 doesn’t believe in birth control, obviously.
Jim Bob told The Friddle Show last month at the Values Voters Summit …that Michelle did use the birth control pill early in their marriage, reports RawStory.com.
“Something we didn’t know is that the pill can allow women to get pregnant, but then it can be aborted, and it really, that’s what happened with Michelle,” said Jim Bob.
“She went on the pill after Josh and then got pregnant, and then the pill actually caused a miscarriage, and so that was really when we started examining this,” added Jim Bob. “We started looking at the fine print of the contraception, and it said this could happen, and then we talked to a Christian doctor, and he explained this to us.”
Medical experts, like those at the Mayo Clinic, disagree.
In the past, doctors had concerns that if you conceived immediately after stopping the pill, you had a higher risk of miscarriage. However, these concerns have proved to be largely unfounded. The hormones in birth control pills don’t linger in your system …
If you continued taking your birth control pill because you didn’t realize you were pregnant, don’t be alarmed. Despite years of this accident happening, there’s very little evidence that exposure to the hormones in birth control pills causes birth defects. [su_csky_ad]
