NARAL used this article in an email alert yesterday to attempt to pressure Wal-Mart to always have a pharmacist on duty to dispense Plan B, the morning after pill.
While the FDA agreed last August, under pressure from libereal feminists, to make Plan B available without a prescription to any adult woman or man over 18, pharmacies still stock it behind the counter, like cigarettes, so as to check ID.
But since the MAP can abort a preborn baby in his or her first week of life, some pharmacists won’t dispense it on moral grounds.
bc.jpgHere’s where we’ve crippled ourselves, and the other side knows it. Birth conrol pills contain the same hormones as MAPs and can also abort in the first 5-9 days of life. Yet many pro-life organizations refuse to “go there,” as do many pro-lifers. Here’s how NARAL pounced on that point in its recommended sample email to Wal-Mart’s CEO….

The vast majority of Americans, including those who oppose legal abortion, support birth control. Additionally, polling shows that 80 percent of Americans think it’s wrong for pharmacists to refuse to fill women’s prescriptions for birth control based on their personal views.

We can either lose this battle or pounce on it ourselves to educate women that birth control pills and MAPs may abort. The other side is certainly hiding this point. Here is how one liberal webside described how BCs can work:

Most birth control pills are “combination pills” containing a combination of the hormones estrogen and progesterone to prevent ovulation (the release of an egg during the monthly cycle). A woman cannot get pregnant if she doesn’t ovulate because there is no egg to be fertilized. The Pill also works by thickening the mucus around the cervix, which makes it difficult for sperm to enter the uterus and reach any eggs that may have been released. The hormones in the Pill can also sometimes affect the lining of the uterus, making it difficult for an egg to attach to the wall of the uterus.

Can you decipher that BCs may cause abortions? Clearly the other side is dishonest on this point. Why should we enable them – and fail women – by remaining silent?
