Over-the-Counter Abortion Paid by ObamaCare: Study

While Planned Parenthood and other birth control fanatics claim that the morning-after pill (Plan B) prevents fertilization and thus does NOT kill a created human being, a new report published by Chris Kahlenborn (The Polycarp Research Institute), Rebecca Peck (Florida State University College of Medicine), and Walter Severs (College of Medicine at Penn State University) in The Linacre Quarterly shows that "the latest scientific and medical evidence now demonstrates that levonorgestrel emergency contraception theoretically works via abortion quite often."

-- From "New scientific review: Plan B causes abortions" by Drew Belsky, American Thinker 2/4/15

The review lays out eight arguments "against an abortifacient effect" and debunks them, relying in significant part on a study by Noé, et. al in 2010 – "the largest study to date to employ serial trasvaginal assessments of follicular size to determine ovulation."  Basically, the information in Noé, along with a number of other studies, shows that Plan B does not delay or otherwise affect ovulation significantly enough to rule out the likelihood of the drug operating after fertilization (i.e., destroying a unique human being).  Further, "there is absence of clinical pregnancy in cases where fertilization is likely, which suggests that abortion is a likely mechanism of action."

"The claim," the authors conclude, "that moral certitude exists via LNG-EC's non-abortifacient action is currently indefensible."

The mechanisms of hormonal contraception have always been poorly understood, if only because one cannot pinpoint the exact moment of fertilization.  Plan B's own label proclaims that the drug can cause the death of a unique human embryo – "It may also prevent fertilization of a released egg ... or attachment of a fertilized egg to the uterus."  The term "fertilized egg" is misleading, because once an egg is fertilized, it is no longer an egg.  There is no spermatazoon at that point, and no ovum, but only a discrete human being, with the full complement of chromosomes (generally) and the workings in place to develop and grow.

From "Obamacare-Covered Morning-After Pill 'Works Via Abortion Quite Often,' Medical Ethics Journal Reports" by Napp Nazworth, Christian Post Reporter 2/5/15

Plan B was first approved for use by the Food and Drug Administration in 1999. After passage of the Affordable Care Act, or "Obamacare," the Health and Human Services Administration required most employers to cover Plan B and other FDA-approved emergency contraceptives in their employee's health insurance plans.

This "birth control mandate" led to numerous court battles involving religious groups and businesses, some of whom only objected to coverage of certain emergency contraceptives due to their potential to behave like an abortifacient drug.

The cases involving religious nonprofits, such as Christian colleges and social service groups, have continued. On Wednesday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit heard oral arguments in a challenge to the mandate by EWTN Global Catholic Network, a television and radio ministry founded by a nun.

In 2012, when there was much debate over Plan B and Obamacare, for instance, the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics released a statement saying that Plan B does not inhibit implantation. Some liberal news sites reported on that statement under headlines like, "Abortion Qualms on Morning-After Pill May Be Unfounded," and "Morning-After Pills Don't Cause Abortion, Studies Say."
