How does the pill work?
A: The birth control pill and similar birth control products work in a woman’s body in one of three ways: They can prevent ovulation and they can obstruct sperm from reaching the oocyte (prevent fertilization) by thickening the cervical mucus. However, if both of these methods fail and a new human being is created, the pill and other contraceptives can stop a tiny child’s implantation in his/her mother’s womb by thinning the lining of the uterus, resulting in the death of the child. This is called a chemical abortion.

Q: How does the pill kill babies?
A: This can happen because the pill and other birth control products can prevent implantation from occurring. When the preborn baby implants in the womb, the baby establishes a connection with the mother so that he or she can receive the sustenance needed to grow. If the preborn baby cannot implant in the mother’s womb, he or she will die.

Q: Why aren’t we better informed about the fact that the pill can kill babies?
A: In 1965, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) stepped in and issued a medical bulletin that “officially” changed the definition of conception from the union of sperm and oocyte to implantation: “Conception is the implantation of a fertilized ovum.”1 It then defined pregnancy as beginning at conception (implantation). Once that happened, it was easy for pill manufacturers and other organizations, such as Planned Parenthood, to cover up how the pill works and only mention that it “prevents pregnancy” when, in fact, women have had human beings created in them while being on the pill. These newly created human beings die because they cannot implant. If you doubt this really happens, listen to the arguments of these same organizations as they argue against personhood initiatives.

Q: How do you know when life begins?
A: It is a proven, scientific fact that each human being’s life begins at the point of creation. In sexual reproduction, this happens during the first stage of fertilization (stage 1a of the Carnegie stages). 2

Q: I’m for reducing the number of abortions, but isn’t using the birth control pill the only way to do that?
A: The birth control pill does not reduce the number of abortions. It is estimated that over 70 million chemical abortions have taken place in the United States in the last 10 years alone. If you’re single, abstinence is always your best choice. It isn’t always easy, but it always works. By abstaining from sex, you eliminate the possibility of pregnancy and catching a sexually transmitted disease. What birth control has done for our society is turn little babies into disposable objects. Pregnancy is no longer seen as a blessing, but a curse.

Not only that, but think about this! What happens when you get pregnant while being on the pill? Will you see this new baby as a problem? If a child is conceived at the wrong time or is unplanned, will abortion be seen as your “only option”? After all, the pill is taken to avoid babies; so, when a surprise happens, will you want to solve the “problem” by killing the baby?

Q: The Supreme Court has ruled that it’s my right to privacy. Who do you think you are to say otherwise?
A: On June 7, 1965, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down the Griswold v. Connecticut decision. The Supreme Court justices first presumed that previous court decisions dealing with a citizen’s right to liberty and security that prohibited invasion of one’s home and acquisition of evidence that might later be used to convict him of a crime also addressed privacy within marriage. In fact, the justices argued, “The concept of liberty is not so restricted . . . it embraces the right of marital privacy though that right is not mentioned explicitly in the Constitution” and is based on “specific guarantees in the Bill of Rights [which] have penumbras [shadows], formed by emanations from those guarantees that help give them life and substance.” 3

This confusing language, which has no relationship whatsoever to what the Founding Fathers intended, gave married women permission to use the birth control pill. The Supreme Court literally created the “right to privacy” out of thin air.

We now know, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that not only did the Supreme Court literally make up the right that you claim gives you permission to use birth control, but the most popular form of birth control, the pill, can kill innocent preborn children. If there is a chance that human beings are going to be murdered, I am going to do everything in my power to help prevent that from happening. If you knew there was a chance that someone might poison your neighbor, don’t you think you would try to notify your neighbor and do as much as you could to help save a life?
