Ecuadorian Bishops demand abortion pill be withdrawn from country

.- The Secretary General of the Bishops Conference of Ecuador, Bishop Jose Vicente Eguiguren, called for the protection of life from the moment of conception and said the morning after pill should be prohibited in the country.

The distributors of the drug in Peru are attempting to introduce it in Ecuador using the same strategy.  Under the auspices of the Corporation for the Prevention of Unwanted Pregnancies, a non-governmental organization present in various countries of Latin America, distributors have begun an aggressive publicity campaign denying the abortifacient nature of the drug.

Last Monday vendors began selling the abortion pill in Ecuador, and the main spokesman for distributors is Alfredo Guzman, a Peruvian doctor who works for the NGO that is promoting the drug in that country.

Guzman has repeated the same arguments in Ecuador, claiming the pill is not abortifacient and that it will help to reduce “unwanted pregnancies.”  Guzman didn’t mention, however, that in countries like Great Britain where the pill is sold by prescription, the numbers of pregnancies and surgical abortions have not diminished.
