Oral Contraceptives as abortifacient
February 29, 2012 2 Comments
I recently started reading “Does the Birth Control Pill Cause Abortions?” by Randy Alcorn. I downloaded a free pdf version of the book from his website. I would post a link but I’m posting this from my phone (and I’m just not that sophisticted). Thus, you’ll have to google it.
I started the book thinking it was going to be a bunch of unsubstantiated assertions which would allow me to ignore it and get on with my life.
That has not been the case at all. After reading the first few chapters I decided to look up Desogen (for no reason other than it was easy to spell) and see what its product information stated which included the following:
“Combination oral contraceptives act by suppression of gonado-tropins. Although the primary mechanism of this action is inhibition of ovulation, other alterations include changes in the cervical mucus (which increase the difficulty of sperm entry into the uterus) and the endometrium (which reduce the likelihood of implantation).”
In their own words the makers of Desogen acknowledge that one of the ways it “prevents pregnancy” is not by preventing it at all. Instead of actually preventing pregnancy, after conception occurs the pill “reduce(s) the likelihood of implantation.”
In other words, one of the ways Desogen “prevents pregnancy” is to deliberately abort the newly created human being.
Small human being? Yes.
Unique human being? Yes.
Created by, and in the image of, God? Yes.
OK to destroy/kill? Absolutely not!
The information is readily available if you look for it. Don’t take my word for it. Check it out for yourself.
One can only imagine how many deaths have occurred in addition to those killed by traditional methods of abortion.
God help us all.
