Stop pushing deadly birth control in the Black community!

Some dangerous side effects of Depo Provera:

Significant bone and mineral density loss, early osteoporosis, blood clots in arms, legs, lungs and eyes, stroke, weight gain, delayed return to fertility, infertility and increased chance of developing breast cancer.

What is Depo's most dangerous side effect?

It significantly increases the chances of spreading the AIDS virus!

In 2011, in a study involving 9000 participants, researchers at the University of Washington concluded that usage of the drug doubled a person's chances of contracting and transmitting the AIDS virus.

In spite of the well-documented lethal side effects of Depo Provera, organizations such as Planned Parenthood, the World Health Organization, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the UN, the CDC, etc. continue to promote this drug to African people worldwide as a safe and effective form of birth control. Currently African people are 84 percent of its users while Europeans are only 0.2 – 0.7 percent of its users worldwide.

As the Black community is aggressively targeted for Depo-Provera usage, the rate of transmission for the AIDS virus continues to steadily climb among African people. South Africa is currently the country with the hightest Depo usage in the world, and not coincidentally, it is also the country with the highest rate of AIDS in the world.
