Did you know the birth control pill can cause abortions?

More and more men and women are learning that a number of forms of birth control (including the birth control pill, the IUD, the morning after pill, and progesterone-only pills, shots, and implants) can cause the newly conceived child to fail to implant in the wall of the uterus – and thus can have an abortifacient effect.

I’ve written extensively on this topic. Here are some of my publications on the topic:
