Pro-lifers prepare to protest birth control pill

.- The American Life League (ALL) says that its preparations for a national day of protest against the birth control pill are gaining momentum.   Pro-lifers are planning June 7 protests outside of facilities that distribute the pill because of its reported abortifacient effects.

“We have been in contact with people all across the country who are excited and ready to protest,” said Marie Hahnenberg, Project Manager of Protest the Pill Day. “So far, we have heard from people in at least 10 states, including California, Texas, Wisconsin and North Carolina, that they will be participating in Protest the Pill Day. Even protesters in Canada are participating.”

“Pro-lifers understand that life does in fact begin at fertilization and the birth control pill kills babies,” Hahnenberg said.  She said there was so much “disinformation” about the pill that organizers decided a national protest was the best means to educate people.

The American Life League, Pro-Life Wisconsin and Pharmacists for Life International are organizing the protests.

Counter-protests are reportedly being prepared by abortion rights activists.

Hahnenberg said the ALL welcomed counter-protesters since it will provide her organization the opportunity to educate them. “Women have been deceived for years and we must take a stand and do something about it,” she said.
