Contraception & Abortion: The Deadly Connection

In the minds of many pro-lifers, abortion and contraception are entirely separate issues.  But without the notion of "unwanted" children that the contraceptive mentality fosters, there would be no abortion.  In fact, many forms of hormonal birth control can be abortifacient (cause early chemical abortions) by obstructing the implantation of the newly formed human embryo in his or her mother's womb.  After more than 30 years of killing through surgical abortion, and now with the new breed of chemical abortifacients such as Plan B, the Ortho Evra Patch, and Depo-Provera, the link between abortion and contraception is undeniable.  Professor Janet Smith describes the contraceptive mentality in this way:

The connection between contraception and abortion is primarily this:  Contraception facilitates the kind of relationships and even the kind of attitudes and moral character that are likely to lead to abortion.  The contraceptive mentality treat sexual intercourse as though it had little connection with babies; it thinks of babies as an "accident" of intercourse, as an unwelcome intrusion into a sexual relationship, as a burden.  The sexual revolution has no fondness - nor room for - the connection between sexual intercourse and babies..."

("The Connection Between Contraception and Abortion" [Homiletic and Pastoral Review, April, 1993)

Pro-Life Wisconsin is opposed to all forms of artificial contraception.  We support only natural methods of spacing the births of children.  The contraceptive mentality views pregnancy as a "disease" state against which women must be "protected" at all costs - even at the cost of their own health and the lives of their unborn babies.  Abortion simply becomes backup contraception.  The Unites States Supreme Court went so far as to enshrine the contraceptive mentality in law in its landmark Planned Parenthood vs. Casey decision in 1992.

Please educate yourself about the deadly connection between contraception and abortion and spread this truth with love and patience to your family and friends.  May God bless you in the effort.


Ella (ulipristal acetate)

Abortions in America are increasingly chemical in nature.  Numerous FDA-approved drugs have both pre- and post-implantation abortifacient effects, and their mechanisms of action are often made intentionally vague by the pharmaceutical companies that manufacture and market them.

Hormonal contraceptives such as Plan B or the Morning-after pill (levonorgestrel), the Pill, and the Patch can, at least some of the time, prevent the implantation in the uterine lining of the already-created embryonic baby.  This mechanism of action is termed a pre-implantation chemical abortion.

RU-486 or Mifeprex (mifepristone) blocks the hormone that helps develop the lining of the uterus during pregnancy (progesterone). This lining is the source of nutrition and protection for the implanted, developing baby. The tiny boy or girl is starved to death and then a second drug, misoprostol causes contractions so that the dead baby is expelled from the womb. This mechanism of action is termed a post-implantation chemical abortion.

In August 2010, the FDA approved the new drug Ella (ulipristal acetate) which has both pre- and post-implantation abortifacient mechanisms of action.  U.S-based Watson Pharmaceuticals acknowledges that, in addition to stopping or delaying ovulation, "ella may also work by preventing attachment to the uterus."  Marketed by Watson as "emergency contraception," Ella is recommended for use up to five days after intercourse.  But it has the same chemical make-up and mode of action as RU-486.  Like mifepristone, ulipristal acetate blocks progesterone and thus can kill an already implanted embryo.

There is no getting around the pharmacological facts:  Ella is an abortion drug.  According to Dr. Donna Harrison, who spoke on behalf of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists at the FDA hearing on the Ella® New Drug Application in June of 2010, ulipristal is toxic to embryos at low doses.  "It is predictable that progesterone blockade will have profound embryolethal and developmental effects on the embryo fetus exposed to ulipristal," Dr. Harrison said.
