Letter to the editor: Plan B is abortive

Thursday, April 18, 2013 - 12:01 am

“Another day, another dollar.” No, wait, that should be, “Another day, another lie.”

The drug Plan B is not an emergency contraceptive as it is being referred to. A condom used before the fact is a contraceptive. Plan B taken after the fact is an abortive. The term contraceptive indicates that it is contra (against) ceptive (conception).

Plan B is against the pregnancy that has already started; in plain terms that’s an abortion. Don’t be deceived; this drug is not in the same category as “Take two aspirins and call me in the morning.” This is a drug with the power to end a life barely started.
