.- As debate continues about the inclusion of the morning after pill in family planning programs throughout Latin America, an expert in the field has confirmed that science does not hide the abortifacient nature of the drug, even though promoters insist on calling it just another “contraceptive.”

In an article, Dr. German Alvardo, Post-Doctoral Fellow at John Hopkins University, said that “emergency oral contraception (AOE, also called the morning after pill), when taken after fertilization, is abortifacient and does not just simply prevent ovulation, as some would have us believe.”

“The famous pill prevents implantation of the human embryo in the walls of the mother’s uterus, which if it weren’t for the AOE would take place between the sixth and eighth day of life,” underscored Alvarado, who has a Master’s in public health from the University of Brussels.

Alvarado said that “since 1946 science recognizes that human life begins at the moment of fertilization (Declaration of the World Medical Association).  Fertilization can take place as soon as 2 hours after sexual relations or it can take as long as 72 hours.”

The Peruvian doctor underscored that “independently of whatever institution or person who wants to fool us ‘with the manipulation of words’, it is scientifically true that the oral emergency contraception is abortifacient and therefore, kills.”

“Nobody has been able to disprove the argument that human life begins at fertilization.  No utilitarian ‘consensus’ should approve the AOE therefore,” added Alvarado.

“Certain feminists want to deceive people because they do business with certain pharmaceutical companies, and they are in the business of killing, and what is worse, they do so under the banner of science and human rights,” he explained.

Alvarado recalled the tragic medical experiments of the Nazis, some of which were carried out with the cooperation of pharmaceutical companies, the Tuskegee syphilis study in Alabama (1932-1972) carried out on blacks by the US Public Heath Service, and the Willowbrook Study of New York (1963-1966) carried out on mentally retarded children.

“Sometimes in the name of science and technology, horrible crimes against humanity have been committed,” he recalled, adding that “as a doctor, I defend life and health and I fervently reject emergency oral contraceptives.”
