In the Feb. 4 issue of Report magazine, “Brave New World” columnist Celeste McGovern writes of a gruesome method of blood doping used by some female athletes to boost athletic performance. Since enhancing drugs and even regular blood doping can be identified by regulators, the pregnancy-abortion scheme, while officially banned, is virtually impossible to stop.
Mona Passignano, director of research at the Texas pro-life group Life Dynamics, is quoted by Report quoting from a Finnish sports medicine expert: “Now that drug testing is routine, pregnancy is becoming the favourite way of getting an edge on competition.” One Russian athlete told a reporter that as long ago as the 70s, gymnasts as young as 14 were ordered to sleep with their coaches to get pregnant – and then abort. The procedure is so well known it has made it to the textbooks. LifeSite found the method described in an online textbook in physiology by Dr. Poul-Erik Paulev of the Department of Medical Physiology, University of Copenhagen (Medical Physiology And Pathophysiology Essentials and Clinical Problems).
|Professor Paulev writes that pregnancy seems to increase muscle strength in female athletes. “Female top athletes – just following the time when they gave birth to their first child – have set several world records. Of course, this is acceptable as a natural and unintended event. However, in some countries female athletes have become pregnant for two to three months, in order to improve their performance just after the abortion.”|
