ABORTIFACIENT: Any action that aborts a preborn child prior to the baby implanting himself in the wall of his mother’s womb. This word simply means early days abortion.
FERTILIZED EGG: This is a misnomer. When a female’s egg is fertilized by a male’s sperm, the result is a unique human being—a human embryo who has her own specific DNA.
FACTS DISPEL MYTHS
#1: Whether one understands pregnancy as beginning at “implantation” or “fertilization,” the heart of the matter is when human life begins. Embryological science has clearly determined that, when we consider natural sexual human reproduction, human life begins at the beginning of the process of fertilization—at the moment of first contact between the female oocyte and the male sperm immediately resulting in a new, genetically distinct human being. This is not a subjective opinion, but an objective scientific fact (See reference).
Keep in mind that fertilization normally occurs in the fallopian tube. The newly created child then travels down the fallopian tube to the uterus (womb) where he or she implants. Implantation is necessary for the new child to receive nourishment from the mother and continue developing. The journey from the fallopian tube to the womb takes between five and seven days during which pregnancy cannot be readily detected.
#2: With the introduction of chemical birth control, abortion statistics have not gone down. They’ve gone up—way up! (See reference)
#3: “Family planning” experts have always recognized that the high failure rate of contraceptives would lead to more abortions. In fact, they demand that abortion be made available as a “backup” to widespread contraception.
Abortion statistician Christopher Tietze stated baldly that women who use contraception are inevitably going to have several “failures” during their reproductive lives: “The safest regimen of control for the unmarried and for married child-spacers is the use of traditional methods [of contraception] backed up by abortion; but if this regimen is commenced early in the child-bearing years, it is likely to involve several abortions in the course of her reproductive career for each woman who chooses it.” (See reference)
SOCIETY HAS BOUGHT THE LIES
What birth control has done in our society is turn little babies into disposable objects. Pregnancy is no longer seen as a blessing, but as a curse or a disease. Parents of large families are looked down upon instead of being held in high esteem. We now place more value on getting big salaries, driving nice cars, and living in huge homes.
Young married couples want to wait years before starting families because they have been brainwashed into thinking that children will rob them of their freedom. So, if a child is conceived at the “wrong time” or is unplanned, abortion becomes a likely option for the couple that cannot see that children are a great blessing.
