Pharmacists confirm morning-after pill causes chemical abortion

.- Pharmacists for Life has issued a statement, confirming that the morning-after pill causes abortions and does not simply “prevent pregnancy” as some pharmaceutical companies claim. Gynetics Inc. recently won government permission to advertize and sell "morning-after pills." The maker of the PREVEN kit based in Somerville, N.J., claims that these pills work to prevent pregnancy by acting before pregnancy occurs.

However, what the company has done “is redefine pregnancy as beginning after successful implantation of the embryo in the woman's uterus, which normally occurs seven to 10 days after fertilization,” noted Pharmacists for Life.

“Life begins at fertilization--at the time of the fusion of an egg and sperm--not after implantation,” the pro-life group emphasized, pointing out that one of the major actions of the morning-after kit is to interfere with and prevent proper implantation.

“Make no mistake: this is an abortifacient mechanism of action rather than a contraceptive one,” the group said.

Pharmacists for Life also warned about the adverse side effects of the morning-after pill, which is simply a large dose of birth control chemicals.

Birth control pills, at regular dosage levels, have always been known to cause side effects, such as nausea, vomiting, headaches, high blood pressure, changes in cholesterol levels, changes in menstrual flow patterns and, for some who have severe reactions, strokes and even death from blood clots and heart attacks.

Morning-after pills are increased amounts of these chemicals--usually eight times the normal dose over a 24-hour period.

The pharmacists stated that studies have not yet been done to determine the long-term effects of the morning-after pill on women and their offspring.
