Chilling interview with abortionist defines the problem with abortion and birth control

Q: Your website describes abortion as an “important medical procedure.” Can you expand on that?

Well, it’s a philosophical question. But to us, ethically, having an early abortion and taking birth control pills are the same procedure, because certain types of birth control prevent the development of a fertilized egg and leads to miscarriage.

If you consider a fertilized egg a pregnancy, which religious people do, then taking certain birth control pills is just as much an abortion as anything else. It’s somewhat interesting that many people who would demonstrate against an abortion service think nothing of taking birth control pills. Ethically, you cannot differentiate between the two.

Second, in a certain patient population, an early abortion is a safer, better birth-control method than even taking birth control pills. So, from a medical point of view, there is no scientific or ethical argument that you could come up with against early pregnancy termination. As long as humans have recreational sex they will need abortion. As long as some pregnancies are abnormal, we will need abortion. You can’t get around it.

  1. We can get around it, PP Abortion-Not-a-Doctor: through The True Faith and The Love of Christ. Oh, and a little thing called abstinence helps.

    Thanks for this telling post, Doug. Many people think the pill merely avoids a pregnancy; and that is evil enough, to interrupt God’s Plan for a new life. They do not know they are murdering their own children. This may be helpful for those people in that category. So we pray.

  2. “They do not know they are murdering their own children.”

    This is serious question:

    There have been studies that show that, naturally, the vast majority of fertilized eggs are naturally ‘aborted’ with the woman’s own menstrual cycle. This is through no fault of her own…the fertilized egg just doesn’t correctly attach itself to the wall of her womb, or else it happens at a time of her cycle in which it cannot do so.

    So, if abortion, or even the loss of a single fertilized egg, is murder…then what do you call the vast majority of fertilized eggs naturally being lost? Natural disaster? Murder by god?

    And related to that, do you imagine heaven is full of fertilized eggs?
