Making Birth Control Pills Available Over the Counter?

By Randy Alcorn December 14, 2012

Prolifer Mike Brady has expressed concern over the recent move of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists to recommend that birth control pills be available over the counter. (Learn more.)

Mike goes on to explain why people should oppose this. One major reason is the third mechanism of the pill prevents implantation of a newly created human being, thus it would result in many more chemical abortions. He also explains that “The other side effects of the pill, including risk of blood clots, and cancer, would not be monitored.”  

(If you’d like to read more specifically about the abortifacient effect of the pill, see my book Does the Birth Control Pill Cause Abortions?, available in print and as a free ebook.)

I recommend you take action by contacting the FDA and sending them a brief comment. This can be done at
