As part of Obamacare, a new mandate requires health insurance plans to cover sterilizations, contraceptives and abortifacients and essentially make it free to the insured. Many are angry that this is an unconstitutional mandate, and many are angry over the assault on basic religious freedoms.
I personally still cannot understand how the murder of a child is disguised as “women’s choice.” For me, this isn’t about politics or religion; it’s about life. This is about the life of an innocent child that is being thrown into a health insurance mandate as if it means nothing.
When the Morning After Pill first came out, I researched whether the drug prevented pregnancy or caused an early abortion. At the time, I read that it can take up to 48-72 hours to become pregnant. If you took the Morning After Pill the next day, it might work. Three days later, it might not, but it didn't cause someone to abort the pregnancy very often. Therefore, it was not a to be used to abort a child.
Now a new drug, included in the new mandate, ellaOne, has been released as contraception. However, the studies done on this drug show that it causes miscarriages, according to Life Issues Institute, and is toxic to embryos. The Washington Post wrote an article stating it is possible that ellaOne could induce an abortion by making the womb inhospitable to an embryo.
ellaOne works for up to five days after unprotected sex. I’m not a doctor, but according to Discovery Health and WebMD, sperm can reach the fallopian tube within 30 minutes. Conception can occur up to five days after sex, but you could be pregnant by then.
Women who have been raped or are a victim of incest need somewhere to turn for help, but politicians and pharmaceutical companies have used that to make it convenient for those who just didn’t bother to practice safe sex.
There is another alternative for that: adoption.
