After rereading the article cited in my last entry, I decided to read the followup article Austin Pro-Life Doctor on Abortion, Contraception and Euthanasia, which included the following statement from a doctor, “No reasonable person could possibly agree with [the fact] that there is essentially no difference between taking birth control pills and having an abortion.” Umm…hello? You’re a doctor, right? Do you really have no idea what you’re prescribing to your patients? Birth Control pills, shots, patches and rings are all designed to work the same ways and, scarily, no one knows exactly which method works what percentage of the time. First, they attempt to stop ovulation. Second, they thicken cervical mucus to make it harder and hopefully impossible for sperm to swim to the egg should one be released. Lastly, they thin the uterine lining rendering it impossible for a fertilized egg to latch on. Thus, the fertilized egg, which has traveled down the fallopian tube and into the uterus will die and be sloughed out with the woman’s next “period.” If you believe that life begins at conception, then you believe that artificial birth control causes very early abortions. Read the insert that comes in your birth control packaging. Look it up on the internet. I’m not making this up, people. That crazy abortionist in Austin was dead on when he said that the “brain-washed” Christians who believe life begins at conception are hypocrites for taking birth control bills. If you take artificial contraception, you’ve no doubt aborted or “intentionally miscarried” multiple “embryos,” potentially one every month that you’ve been sexually active while taking birth control. I think it’s sad that women cluelessly do this every day, but I think it’s an abomination that a doctor, not to mention a presumably “pro-life” doctor, misleads women by telling them that this is not how birth control works. The women of America need to wake up. Do a little research about the chemicals you’re putting in your body every day. If you didn’t know it’s killing your babies, do you know about the increased cancer risks and other health concerns? That’s in the fine print in the package insert too.
