Birth control pills and patches pose a risk of death to women and also to unborn babies that have been conceived on those occasions when the contraceptive fails to prevent pregnancy. To those ladies who use contraceptives, how many of you have read the warnings of possible side effects of your drug of choice? Maybe you THINK that only a rare few women would be affected so seriously as to cause a heart attack, stroke or death, but what if one of those women was you, your mother, daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece or beloved friend? What if one of those to die was your unborn baby, sibling, or grandchild? Maybe you are one who would never deliberately choose to have an abortion, but by using contraceptives you are accepting the possibility that one or more of your children will die because you chose to try to prevent their conception.
Use of an IUD can also cause serious health risks for a woman and death to her unborn baby or babies. Read the true and unforgettable story of Dr. Gloria Polo who was struck by lightening while implanted with a copper IUD.
Ladies, please put your trust in God and His Commandments instead of in the FDA and those who promote the use of contraceptives.

Jesus, I promise You to submit myself to all that You permit to befall me,
make me only know Your will.
My most sweet Jesus, infinitely merciful God, most tender Father of souls,
and in a particular way of the most weak, most miserable, most infirm
which You carry with special tenderness between Your divine arms,
I come to You to ask You, through the love and merits of Your Sacred Heart,
the grace to comprehend and to do always Your holy will,
the grace to confide in You,
the grace to rest securely through time and eternity in Your loving divine arms.
Many women, longing to conceive a child, have come to the Shrine to touch and venerate St. Gianna’s gloves and ask for her intercession. God has granted many of them new life. There have also been many other kinds of answered prayers. St. Gianna holy cards & pamphlets in English and Spanish are available at the shrine.
