Pro-life institutions in Bolivia call for prohibition against sale of morning after pill

.- The Institute on Bioethics of the Catholic University of Bolivia and the Apostolate of the New Evangelization, ANEPROVIDA, have called on the country’s political and healthcare leaders to prohibit the sale of the morning after pill because of its abortifacient nature and its attack on women’s health and traditional mores.

In response to news that the drug is now being sold in Bolivia, both institutions noted that the pill is “potentially abortifacient” because of its anti-implantation mechanism.

They argued that the drug “can seriously harm the health of women who take it” and can cause cancer and other illnesses.

They warned that the promotion and distribution of the pill would lead to the deterioration of “morality, “especially among teenagers, who think they can have sexual relations, even promiscuously, using contraceptives, and as a last resort, emergency contraception, without getting pregnant.  In this way sexual promiscuity and conjugal infidelity is being promoted.”

The institutions called on all Bolivians to denounce “the illegal sale of the morning after pill.”
