American women are worried about Mitt Romney’s attacks on women’s health. Why? Mitt Romney has said he will “get rid of” federal funding for Planned Parenthood. When he was pressed on where women should go for the important medical services Planned Parenthood provides — like cervical cancer screenings and breast exams — he was dismissive, saying that “they can go anywhere they like.” Well, anywhere except Planned Parenthood if Mitt Romney gets his way. When it comes to women’s healthcare, it’s clear that Mitt Romney has other priorities. When it comes to Mitt Romney, it’s clear American women just can’t afford his policies. “Women Are Worried: Mitt Romney’s attacks on Women’s Health” Tweet it: bit.ly Facebook it: on.fb.me Tumble it: bit.ly

New York, New York (PRWEB) March 30, 2012

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the legal rights of people injured by defective drugs, continues to evaluate Actos (pioglitazone) lawsuit claims on behalf of individuals who suffered from bladder cancer, congestive heart failure or heart attacks while taking Actos. According to Parker Waichman LLP attorney Daniel C. Burke, Actos is a type-2 diabetes drug that increases the bodys sensitivity to insulin. Actos was approved for sale by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in 1999, but has now been linked to a serious risk of bladder cancer. Mr. Burke advises Actos users to see their doctor immediately if they have a diagnosis of bladder cancer or have noticed pain with urination, increased frequency urination, or blood in their urine. An overview of Actos and its possible side effects is provided by Mr. Burke in this video produced by Parker Waichman LLP.

According to Public Health Watchdog, the FDA announced in September 2010 that it was conducting an ongoing safety review concerning the increased risk of bladder cancer associated with exposure to Actos. Nearly a year later, in June 2011, the agency said in an update that use of the diabetes medication Actos (pioglitazone) for more than one year may be associated with an increased risk of bladder cancer. According to Public Health Watchdog, the agency warned healthcare professionals against prescribing Actos in patients who have bladder cancer or have a history of bladder cancer. Information regarding bladder cancer was added to the “Warnings and Precautions” section of the Actos label.[fda.gov/Drugs/DrugSafety/ucm259150.htm]

Public Health Watchdog also reports that Actos effects on the heart have been cause for concern. A boxed warning was added to the Actos label in August 2007 to emphasize that pioglitazone may cause or exacerbate heart failure, particularly in certain patient populations.

See Gianna ad here: www.youtube.com Go to www.BornAliveTruth.org for the facts on Barack Obama’s opposition to the IL Born Alive Infants Protection Act. Response from Gianna Jessen: Mr. Obama is clearly blinded by political ambition given his attack on me this week. All I asked of him was to do the right thing: support medical care and protection for babies who survive abortion as I did 31 years ago. He voted against such protection and care four times even though the US Senate voted 98-0 in favor of a bill identical to the one Obama opposed. In the words of his own false and misleading ad, his position is downright vile. Mr. Obama said at the recent Saddleback Forum that the question of when babies should get human rights was above his pay grade. Such vacillation and cowardice in public policy almost left me to die and no one should have to go through what I went through. Response from BovenAliveTruth.org Exec. Dir. Jill Stanek: “It is despicable, repulsive and beneath contempt that Barack Obama would attack Gianna Jessen. She is a courageous abortion survivor and living miracle who would not be with us today if Obama’s policies had been in place when she was born. Mr. Obama continues to mislead the American people on this issue, he voted four times against medical care and protection for babies who survive abortions in the Illinois State Senate, while the US Senate was voting 98-0 to pass an identical bill. Mr. Obama needs to come forward and tell the American people
