Synthetic Hormones Impacting Teen Bone Density

Planned Parenthood performs surgical abortions on teen girls without parental permission.  New research shows another so-called service they provide may be debilitating to the health of young girls.  A meta-analysis of research from Brazil, Canada, China and the US shows healthy teen girls who use hormonal contraception containing estrogen and progestin experienced significant spinal bone loss over two years.  Girls achieve peak bone mass density in their spines between sixteen and nineteen years old.  Those who have a lower bone density are widely believed to have an increased risk of fractures later in life.  Sadly, Planned Parenthood believes parents should be left out of the decisions affecting the long-term health of teens.
