Blood Doping: Female athletes deliberately get pregnant (then abort) to boost performance

This is a companion post to DCG’s post this morning on U.S. gold medalist runner Sanya Richards-Ross’ confession that she had an abortion one day before she left for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, and her even more startling admission that every female athlete she knows has had abortions — “I literally don’t know another female track-and-field athlete who hasn’t had an abortion”.

That “every” female athlete has had abortions strains credulity in our age of widespread knowledge of birth control and availability of contraceptives.

What Richards-Ross doesn’t tell you in her autobiographical book that she’s hawking, Chasing Grace, is that female athletes deliberately get pregnant (and then abort) in order to boost their athletic performance. The practice is called blood doping.

WebMD explains that blood doping is an illicit method of improving athletic performance by artificially boosting the blood’s ability to bring more oxygen to muscles via increasing the amount of hemoglobin — an oxygen-carrying protein — in the bloodstream. The increase in hemoglobin allows higher amounts of oxygen to reach and fuel an athlete’s muscles, thereby improving stamina and performance, particularly in long-distance events such as running and cycling.

Blood doping is banned by the International Olympic Committee and other sports organizations.

WebMD lists three widely-used types of blood doping:

  1. Blood transfusions: autologous (a transfusion of the athlete’s own blood that had been drawn and stored) or homologous (a transfusion of the blood of someone else with the same blood type as the athlete’s).
  2. Injections of erythropoietin (EPO): EPO is a hormone produced by the kidney which regulates the body’s production of red blood cells. Illicit injections of EPO encourage athletes’ bodies to produce higher than normal amounts of red blood cells to enhance performance.
  3. Injections of synthetic oxygen carriers: These are chemicals that have the ability to carry oxygen, such as HBOCs (hemoglobin-based oxygen carriers) and PFCs (perfluorocarbons).

Another method of blood doping is abortion doping — the practice of female athletes purposely inducing pregnancy to boost performance, then aborting the baby.

Pregnancy enhances athletic performance in two ways (Wikipedia):

  1. By increasing blood volume and, thus, hemoglobin: In the first three months of pregnancy, a woman’s body produces a natural surplus of red blood cells that are well supplied with oxygen-carrying hemoglobin, in order to support the growing fetus. A study of athletes before and after pregnancy by Professor James Pivarnik at the Human Energy Research laboratory in Michigan State University found that pregnancy increases a woman’s blood volume by as much as 60%, resulting in a 30% increase in her body’s ability to carry oxygen to muscles.
  2. By increasing hormones that have positive effects on a woman’s athletic performance: progesterone and estrogen increase aerobic capacity; testosterone increases a woman’s muscle strength; relaxin, which loosens the hip joints to prepare for childbirth, enhances joint mobility.

In fact, several world records have been set by female athletes shortly after giving birth to their first child.

Wikipedia recounts that rumors of abortion doping first arose in the 1970s and 1980s about East German female athletes. The rumors are believed to be true by:

  • Former IOC Vice President Prince Alexandre de Merode, who said he knew a Swiss doctor who performed abortion doping.
  • Greg Whyte, a professor of applied sport and exercise science at Liverpool John Moores University, stated that “It is certainly viable that pregnancies were enforced and then terminated as part of the old East German regime, some doctors have claimed they know that is the case.”

While abortion doping is officially banned under U.S. Olympic rules, there is no ban on getting pregnant. If an athlete is accused of abortion doping, she can simply argue that she didn’t get pregnant to enhance her athletic performance. All of which renders abortion doping undetectable and unprovable. And so it remains unknown how common the procedure is. Opinions vary greatly: it is regarded as completely unfounded by some and is accepted as a worldwide athletic phenomenon by others.

Below is a video on abortion and blood doping.

Beginning at the 5:34 mark of the video, Mark Crutcher, a pro-life activist and founder/president of Life Dynamics Inc., gets to the heart of the issue:

“When you legalize abortion as a culture, you have to be willing to take all the things that come along with it. All the stuff that we see: the selling baby parts, the pedophile protection racket . . . you got to be willing to take. That’s part of the deal, that’s what you get . . . . If there’s nothing wrong with abortion, what’s wrong with what these women [athletes] are doing? What’s wrong with a woman getting pregnant on purpose . . . to make more money and get more [athletic] scholarships, get more whatever it might be? What’s wrong with it if there’s nothing wrong with abortion?”

  1. So this explains and elucidates DCG’s earlier post.

    It also explains the depravity we, as a culture, as a corporate whole, have sunk to.
    Pepsi-Cola has been accused of using fetal tissue as a flavor enhancer. Baby parts are for sale. And now we have abortion-doping, which you correctly state, is easily deniable, making any rule against it unenforceable.

    And England has admitted it fuels its hospitals with aborted fetuses and cadavers.

    Well, it’s here: WE’RE ALL CANNIBALS NOW. The Oligarchs and their moral monsters who hack out these paths to doom in the Jungle we are in have taken us all down this path, a path of Bethamite utilitarianism, in which we have all been reduced to nothing but commodities with certain bodily processes which tax and drain the Earth of its resources!
    And as “All roads lead to Rome,” THE BLAME, of course, will always lead back to Whitey: Yes, the archetypical White Christian Male did this. In fact, according to this narrative, EVERY white Christian heterosexual male did this, because it is THEY who are the oppressors!

    Won’t work with me, Folks: FOTM, Dr. Henry Makow, David Icke, Webster Tarpley and others have taught me otherwise.
    And Oprah Winfrey and Hillary Clinton and their feminist crowd, selling their collective feminist absolution won’t work, either: Outside of the Christian Worldview, there is no real freedom for women.
    Nietzsche wanted to go “Beyond Good and Evil.” Nope, doesn’t work.

  3. I think I read about a tie between abortion and breast cancer or other cancer somewhere. Wouldn’t surprise me, there’s several issues those who have abortions will face afterwards and I doubt if premeditated in-utero fetus vivisectionists aka planned parenthood tell their patients beforehand.

    What has our world and country come to when you take a person’s life to gain an advantage over another person and kill to accomplish this deed. How sordid can your mind be? No wonder we have committed genocide in the daily abortions of millions of babies. This has to be stopped and now.

    • DCG . . . Well, if coaches are lined up in support of this heinous kind of “practicing sports” then I have no doubt that they will also get to stand at The Judgement Bar of God to be held responsible for their part in shedding the innocent blood of these little ones. It would be most appropriate that they bare of title of . . . “Murderer.”

  8. I can only hope that the statistics relative to “developing breast cancer” will hold true in the lives of those who have deliberately used the ploy of getting pregnant and then aborting the fetus as a mean of heightening their physical performance . . . it seems like a rather fitting predicament for them to find themselves in.

    In my mind there seems to be some degree of difference between some ignorant, ghetto dwelling young woman who has never been taught anything else, to enter into an abortion, and a young woman who for fame and fortune would enter into an abortion. It is good that Our God would be the judge in these matters.

    • Auntie,
      I do wonder about these girls getting pregnant and how much they value fitness and “their” health…why they would go and have unprotected sex with males to get pregnant and risk disease. I have a hunch that some of the coaches are probably doing more than just coaching those girls….sounds like an arena a pedophile would love to be in because they have the girls’ complete trust and evidence of the “act” is eliminated….perfect setup for a sexual predator…just call yourself a “coach”.

      • MomOfIV . . . Points well taken. I would say that the parents of any young female athletes . . . must be aware of what is going on! As we have seen, coaches should not have the blind faith of either those they coach, or their families.

        I find this whole thing so distressing. I lost my first baby and fought for 4 months to save that pregnancy, spending days in the hospital.
        These people now come along to abuse life to a whole other degree.

  9. This is an excerpt from the The Apocalypse of Peter
    From “The Apocryphal New Testament”
    M.R. James-Translation and Notes
    Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1924 ;

    “23 And there was a great lake full of flaming mire, wherein were certain men that turned away from righteousness; and angels, tormentors, were set over them.

    24 And there were also others, women, hanged by their hair above that mire which boiled up; and these were they that adorned themselves for adultery.

    And the men that were joined with them in the defilement of adultery were hanging by their feet, and had their heads hidden in the mire, and said: We believed not that we should come unto this place.

    25 And I saw the murderers and them that were consenting to them cast into a strait place full of evil, creeping things, and smitten by those beasts, and so turning themselves about in that torment. And upon them were set worms like clouds of darkness. And the souls of them that were murdered stood and looked upon the torment of those murderers and said: O God, righteous is thy judgement.

    26 And hard by that place I saw another strait place wherein the discharge and the stench of them that were in torment ran down, and there was as it were a lake there. And there sat women up to their necks in that liquor, and over against them many children which were born out of due time sat crying: and from them went forth rays of fire and smote the women in the eyes: and these were they that conceived out of wedlock (?) and caused abortion.

    27 And other men and women were being burned up to their middle and cast down in a dark place and scourged by evil spirits, and having their entrails devoured by worms that rested not. And these were they that had persecuted the righteous and delivered them up.”

  10. These so called athletes behave like sluts, get pregnant, and have an abortion so they can have a better time in the 440 or whatever? What a dismal, decadent culture we’ve become. Sports and sex obsessed. Do any of these people realize how precious that little life is growing inside of them? When judgement comes what will be their excuse?
