The Pill That Kills Babies
American Life League hosted a press conference for its first Protest the Pill Day, ramping up for the protests scheduled to occur nationwide outside facilities that distribute the pill. In partnership with Pro-Life Wisconsin and Pharmacists for Life, ALL seeks to raise awareness about the abortifacient nature of the pill and the intrauterine device, which is responsible for killing preborn children in their earliest days.
"Inhibition of ovulation is not equal to its elimination. Escape ovulation happens," said Dr. Marie Anderson, OB/GYN practitioner with the Tepeyac Family Center in Fairfax, VA. "The short story is that the pill thins the uterine lining and depletes it of essential nutrients, such as glycodelin-A, to the degree that it cannot nourish a newly conceived baby. In vetro fertilization data has repeatedly shown that the minimal endometrial thickness which is required to maintain an early pregnancy ranges from five -13 mm. The average endometrial thickness of pill users is only 1.4 mm. This is too thin to nourish a baby. Consequently, the baby dies, and this is an abortion."
Jim Sedlak, vice president of American Life League said, "In 1965, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists changed the definition of conception from meaning 'the union of egg and sperm' to 'implantation.' They did this deliberately, in order to avoid labeling the birth control pill and IUD as abortifacients."
