The Pill Kills

Missed the Pill Kills 2012 National Symposium at the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill in DC? Here's a link. And here's a snippet:

How does the pill kill women?
A: The birth control pill and other birth control products have a long list of dangerous side effects. The pill can cause a woman to develop deep vein thrombosis, which is a blood clot that forms in a vein. The blood clot can block the blood supply to the heart or brain, which could result in heart attack, stroke, or death. The clot could also travel to the lungs, which then could result in pulmonary embolism or death. Women have died as a direct result of taking the pill.
Q: What other ways does the pill kill women?
A: In 2005, the combined oral contraceptive was classified as a Group 1 carcinogen by the World Health Organization. Group 1 means it definitely causes cancer in humans. Although it is true that the pill helps reduce the risk of some kinds of cancer, WHO said that it increases the risk of breast, cervical, and liver cancer.
