The head of the Department of Biopathology at La Fe Hospital in Valencia, Spain, Dr. Justo Aznar Lucea, reaffirmed this week the data on the abortifacient nature of the morning after pill, its failure to reduce the number of pregnancies, and its resulting in an increase in teenage pregnancy in countries where it is used.
In an interview with the newspaper La Razon, Aznar called the government proposal to distribute the drug free of charge in Spain “very wrong,” adding, “it will not have the supposed results of reducing the number of pregnancies and abortions among teenagers.”
According to Aznar, “the use of the pill will lead to a huge loss of human life. It has been demonstrated in a significant number of cases that this pill prevents pregnancy by causing a change in the uterus, making implantation of the embryo impossible. This is the taking of a human life, for which this pill should be categorized as abortifacient.”
Asked about the objections by some doctors who say the pill does not cause abortions, Aznar said, “It is true that some doctors claim pregnancy begins at implantation, and that therefore any action which prevents implantation cannot not be called abortifacient. But the negative judgment this pill deserves is not because it terminates a pregnancy, but rather because it terminates a human life before it is implanted.”
