The Pill Causes Abortion

Pro-abortion advocates have published an authoritative statement declaring that the Pill prevents implantation of embryos, thereby causing an abortion.

In a supplement to its November 2008 issue, top reproductive health journal Fertility and Sterility published the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) statement, “Hormonal contraception: recent advances and controversies.”

In a summary of the development of contraception in the United States the statement called oral contraceptives the “most widely used” reversible method. In the “wide variety” of oral contraceptives that are available, the “mechanisms of action” are the same, said the statement: “inhibition of ovulation, alteration in the cervical mucus, and/or modification of the endometrium, thus preventing implantation.”

Pro-life advocates who oppose abortion, but not contraception, have long considered the Pill as an ethical contraceptive option, as opposed to the IUD, which causes abortions by preventing implantation. However, the statement by the ASRM clearly indicates that the pill is medically classified as a drug that acts by “preventing implantation,” thereby causing the death of a fertilized embryo – a unique and living human being.

A large body of literature supports this statement, including articles from Fertility and Sterility. The most significant of these is a 1996 study by a group of OB/GYNs from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, that concluded that “impaired uterine receptivity” is “one mechanism by which OCs exert their contraceptive actions.”

I read about this! It's amazing how far the pro-abortion camp is willing to go in order to legalize abortion. The idea behind oral contraceptives being declared a form of abortion seems to be to get the millions of women using the pill on board with abortion rights in order to protect their oral contraceptive use. Sneaky. Very sneaky.

I've never looked at it that way before.

The use of the pill was able to change our understand of the meaning of sex from something that gives life to another form of entertainment. Instead of pregnancy being the successful consequence of sex it became an unfortunate outcome with some even equating pregnancy to a disease.

Once this mind set was introduced it was easier to force abortion onto society.

Brilliant! I never looked at it that way. Thanks for teaching me something today. That is a very astute observation about the use of oral contraceptives changing the purpose of sex from primarily procreative to primarily recreational. Wow.
