Resources: scientific evidence
By February 15, 2010Who determines which lives are meaningful and which aren’t? The answer, always, is that powerful people decide whether weaker people’s lives are meaningful. |
By February 8, 2010Present it in a way that is not offensive or accusatory. |
By February 4, 2010There is substantial scientific reason to believe frozen embryos are persons and should be granted the same rights as older, larger, and less vulnerable persons. |
By February 4, 2010The so-called mini-pill is the least reliable in suppressing ovulation. Therefore, its mechanism of action is more likely to be post-ovulatory—that is, abortifacient. |
By February 2, 2010I am a family physician and professor at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, Oregon. I am also one of the physicians on the Physicians Resource Council (PRC) at Focus on the Family. |
By February 2, 2010Perhaps your doctor is uninformed and hasn’t read information on the possible abortifacient aspect of the pill. |
Why do you think prolife physicians who prescribe oral contraceptives have vested interest in doing so?
By February 1, 2010In my opinion it would be unwise to not recognize that everyone, including you and me, has vested interests. |
Why does Focus on the Family take a stand against emergency contraception (EC) but not the birth control pill (BCP)?
By February 1, 2010There is (at least in my mind and many others) an inconsistency in our position statement. I believe that there is considerable evidence that so-called birth control pills (BCPs) do have a significant post-ovulatory (abortifacient) effect. |
By January 29, 2010Science confirms exactly what Scripture demonstrates, that there is a point at which human life does not exist and then is suddenly created by God. In Science this is known as the point of conception. |
