I’ll begin by sharing some information that I wish I would have been told back when I started taking the Pill.
“In all probability, more newly-conceived human beings are destroyed each year by the intrauterine device (IUD) and the Pill than by surgical abortions. An “abortifacient” is a device or drug that causes an abortion. There is no question that both the IUD and the Pill can and do achieve their birth control effectiveness at times by causing very early abortions.”
The way that the IUD and the Pill cause abortions is by creating a hostile environment for the implantation of a fertilized egg. The reason why the Pill does this is because of the failure rate of stopping ovulation (which is what it is supposed to do in the first place). As for the IUD, that is its primary function.
I thank God that I discovered this information on my own after only a couple of years on the pill instead of never at all. I was so amazed with what I learned, I shared the information with my Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM). She had never heard of such a thing. After looking into it on her own, she came to the same conclusion. This is someone who has a medical degree and she was never told how the Pill worked in the case of ovulation still occurring.
“[T]he death toll from the IUD and the Pill exceeds that of the Nazi Holocaust—each year—in the United States alone.”
The majority of the people who have an IUD or are on the Pill do not know or fully understand what they are doing to their babies. The doctors and medical staff aren’t even fully educated on how they work so how are they supposed to pass on the information to others?
Campbell shares “The Arithmetic of Abortifacient Birth Control” in this chapter and the number of abortions caused by the IUD and the Pill is in the millions. (She gives exact numbers and I highly recommend reading the book if only for this chapter!)
I think one of the ways to remedy this awful murdering spree is to educate people. While I now believe it is vital to leave God in control of family size, I was convicted about killing my children through the Pill years before handing back control to God.
I am interested to know how many people did not know this about the IUD or the Pill. Please leave a comment telling me your thoughts on this information.
