Abortifacients kill the developing child


To the Editor:
Abortifacient forms of birth control such as “Plan B” or “The Morning After Pill” kill a developing child by altering the lining of the womb.
Most birth control pills likewise prevent the implantation of a living embryo to the lining of the womb, hereby starving a child to death.
Conservative estimates state that the pill functions as an abortifacient between two and 10 percent of the time.
The I.U.D. inflames the lining of the womb so that the living human embryo is unable to attach. Norplant works as a contraceptive and as an abortifacient. Depo-Provera, an injection administered every three months, uses the same mechanism as the pill.
RU-486 starves a child to death through hormone deprivation and expels the corpse through muscular contractions.
The Bible teaches human life at fertilization. (Psalms 139: 13-16 and Genesis 9:6.)
All sciences support this fact. Abortifacients used as birth control have the same outcome for developing babies as surgical abortion. God have mercy on us all.
