The pro- abortion groups would have you believe that the “morning
after pill,” which consists of relatively large doses of estrogens for
several days, beginning shortly after unprotected sexual intercourse,
will prevent fertilization -- therefore no abortion and your conscience
is clear. This NOT true. It is an abortifacient drug, i.e., a drug that
induces an abortion, which means the death of a human being. When
done willingly and knowingly it has always been considered murder.
This includes the "morning after" pill, Preven, Plan B, or the newest
entry "Early Option" or whatever ridiculous name they want to give it.
Whether it is shortly after conception or in the third tri-mester, it is still, plain
and simple, murder!
What happens when a mother chooses to do away with her baby for
her own convenience? The ovum (egg) is already fertilized by the sperm in the fallopian tubes. The
result of this union, the zygote, makes its way down the tube into
the uterus as the gestation begins. The morning after drugs prevent implantation of the
already fertilized ovum, in the lining of the uterus... The large
amount of estrogen disturbs the normal balance between estrogen
and progesterone that is necessary for preparation of the endometrium
(inner lining) of the uterus for implantation of the zygote. Thus the
already fertilized ovum cannot attach itself to the lining of the uterus
properly. So the drug in fact, causes an abortion to take place.
Preven and Plan B, are banned from Wal-Mart shelves, so I would
urge all Catholics to switch to Wal-Wart and tell them you appreciate
their defending the sanctity of human life.
The "abortion pill" RU486 also destroys the conceptus by interrupting
implantation, because of interference with the hormonal environment
of the implanting zygote/embryo.
These hormones prevent implantation, not fertilization. Consequently,
they should not be called contraceptive pills. Conception occurs but
the zygote does not implant. It would be more appropriate to call them
"contraimplantation pills". Because the term "abortion" refers to a
premature stoppage of a pregnancy, the term "abortion" would apply
to such an early termination of pregnancy. Yet they're going to call
this "silent murder" methodology by the marketing aura of "Early Option."
What a euphoric name for such a deadly pill. But again, there's Planned
Parenthood's imprint, pushing the "choice" moniker by calling it, "option."
And, since it's early, they'll try to justify that it won't kill anyone, just some
harmless sperm. Here are the facts:
Progesterone is necessary to maintain the endometrium which provides
a nourishing bed for the implantation and development of the fetus.
With RU-486, progesterone is blocked and the endometrium no
longer is able to nourish the developing child, which starves and is
Nobody believes that the use of RU486 is safe and innocuous.
These are highly active biological compounds which have marked
cardiovascular actions requiring close supervision. There is a
statement prepared by a joint committee of the French Republic
signed by the Director of General Health, the Director of Hospitals
and the Director of Pharmacy and Medicine.
This directive requests that whenever prostaglandins are given,
cardiopulmonary resuscitation equipment and electrocardiographic
machines be at standby, a defibrillator be available, calcium channel
blockers drawn up in a syringe, and vital signs be monitored over a
period of several hours.
What this says, in effect, is that prostaglandins be given only in what
amounts to an Intensive Care Unit. This communication, which was
sent to all physicians and hospitals in France, followed a fatal cardiac
reaction to prostaglandins in a woman who had received the drug
after RU-486. It is difficult to sustain the notion of safety against the
background of such warnings.
Women will be injured, and possibly even killed, by the known
adverse physical and psychological side effects of the RU 486
technique. Medical and scientific experts point out the lack of
data about potential long-term side effects of the two powerful
synthetic hormones, such as increasing the risk of breast cancer,
damage to future fertility, and genetic abnormalities of subsequent
An incomplete abortion, because of the usage of RU486 has been
known to cause profuse hemorrhaging, and has necessitated blood
transfusions and a follow up surgical abortion to retrieve the remains
of the conceptus.
Very little consideration is given, of course, to the safety of the drugs
for the unborn child who is intended to be killed. It must be a matter
of concern, however, in those instances where the woman changes
her mind after taking the drug and where the drug is only partially
In those cases where the endometrium is partially disrupted,
deformities due to impaired nutrition may occur. Also, the drug
itself is similar in chemical structure to other teratogens and might
be expected to produce deformities. There have been sporadic
reports of such abnormalities, mostly limb-bud anomalies similar to
those caused by Thalidomide.
With this drug women will be able to see the little figure of a
human being when it is discharged, thus in many women their
emotional problems will be more severe -- to actually see your
baby that you have killed.
The proponents of this drug say that studies show that only 2 percent
of women who use mifepristone [RU-486] need hospitalization for
complications. If they say 2%, you can bet it’s a lot more. Watch
for lots of activity in your local emergency rooms to come.
It is practically a fait accomplis that the FDA will give the green light
to this "murder pill" this week
because it's more money for the drug companies and Clinton-Gore have
already put their stamp on it, even to approving a company that is having
it produced in Communist China. The same country which has been called
on the carpet countless times for human rights abuses by an international
jury; the same country that forces sterilization, forces couples to have one
child. We're heading in the same direction if we support this administration
or its politics!
In the eyes of the Catholic Church and all people of faith there is
NO difference between chemically induced abortions and surgically
induced abortions and if you have read carefully, you WILL agree...regardless
of what the "political experts" tell you.
God makes no exception when a human life is destroyed.
