Drugs that are chemically similar to naturally occurring metabolites, but differ enough to interfere with normal metabolic pathways. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p2033)
A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of FOLIC ACID in the diet. Many plant and animal tissues contain folic acid, abundant in green leafy vegetables, yeast, liver, and mushrooms but destroyed by long-term cooking. Alcohol interferes with its intermediate metabolism and absorption. Folic acid deficiency may develop in long-term anticonvulsant therapy or with use of oral contraceptives. This deficiency causes anemia, macrocytic anemia, and megaloblastic anemia. It is indistinguishable from vitamin B 12 deficiency in peripheral blood and bone marrow findings, but the neurologic lesions seen in B 12 deficiency do not occur. (Merck Manual, 16th ed)
Drugs that are used to treat RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS.

Etiology is unknown, but autoimmune mechanisms have been implicated.
A statistical means of summarizing information from a series of measurements on one individual. It is frequently used in clinical pharmacology where the AUC from serum levels can be interpreted as the total uptake of whatever has been administered. As a plot of the concentration of a drug against time, after a single dose of medicine, producing a standard shape curve, it is a means of comparing the bioavailability of the same drug made by different companies. (From Winslade, Dictionary of Clinical Research, 1992)

Anti-inflammatory agents that are non-steroidal in nature. In addition to anti-inflammatory actions, they have analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions.They act by blocking the synthesis of prostaglandins by inhibiting cyclooxygenase, which converts arachidonic acid to cyclic endoperoxides, precursors of prostaglandins. Inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis accounts for their analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions; other mechanisms may contribute to their anti-inflammatory effects.
A synthetic analog of natural prostaglandin E1. It produces a dose-related inhibition of gastric acid and pepsin secretion, and enhances mucosal resistance to injury. It is an effective anti-ulcer agent and also has oxytocic properties.

Abortifacient effects of a unique class of vasoactive lipids from Pinus ponderosa needles. (3/75)

Pinus ponderosa needle (PN) ingestion by late pregnant cows results in decreased uterine blood flow, premature parturition, and retained placentae. Further, plasma from PN-fed cows increases caruncular arterial tone (i.e., induces prolonged contraction) in an isolated perfused bovine placentome. A novel class of vasoactive lipids was isolated and identified using a bovine placentome assay-guided fractionation of CH2Cl2 extracts of PN. Placentome perfusion tests indicated that 1-12-dodecanedioyl-dimyristate (14-12-14) was the most potent of the PN lipids for increasing caruncular arterial tone. Late pregnant guinea pigs (GP) were used to evaluate the abortifacient activity of these vasoactive lipids. In Study 1, on d 50 of gestation, part of the control diet was replaced with chopped PN (Diet A) or chopped PN subjected to sequential extraction with diethyl ether (Et2O; Diet B); Et2O and CH2Cl2 (Diet C); and Et2O, CH2Cl2, and methanol (Diet D). The GP on Diets A and B exhibited shorter (P<.01) gestation lengths and reduced (P<.01) pig birth weights than GP on the control diet or Diets C and D. Further, only GP on Diets A and B exhibited retained placentae. In Study 2, on d 50 of gestation, part of the control diet was replaced with chopped PN that had been subjected to exhaustive CH2Cl2 extraction and then infiltrated with either CH2Cl2 alone (Diet E), CH2Cl2 containing 14-12-14 (Diet F), or CH2Cl2 containing isocupressic acid (Diet G); then solvents were evaporated. The GP consuming Diet F had shorter (P<.05) gestation lengths and reduced (P<.05) pig birth weights than did GP consuming Diets E or G. The GP consuming Diet F also exhibited a high incidence of retained placentae. These data provide evidence that a unique class of vasoactive lipids in PN exhibit abortifacient activity in guinea pigs.  (+info)

An international study on the acceptability of a once-a-month pill. (4/75)

Totals of 450 women attending family planning clinics in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Edinburgh, and 468 in Cape Town, completed a questionnaire designed to seek their views on a contraceptive pill which would be taken only once each month. At least two-thirds of the women in all centres liked the idea of a once-a-month pill. In Hong Kong, Cape Town and Edinburgh, women preferred a pill which inhibited ovulation to one which inhibited implantation, while in all centres a pill which worked after implantation (early menstrual inducer) was considered unacceptable by over half the women. A pill which was taken after a missed menstrual period was considered preferable in all centres, perhaps because it would not be used every month but rather only if pregnancy had occurred. No demographic characteristics, contraceptive experiences or beliefs were consistently correlated with attitudes towards a once-a-month pill, except that women who would not consider having an abortion were more likely to dislike a method that either prevented, or worked after, implantation. A once-a-month pill is now technically possible, although the major drawback is the need to determine when it should be taken. It is reassuring that many women from a variety of different cultures and with widely different experiences, would find this an attractive approach to contraception.  (+info)

Uterine anomalies and failed surgical termination of pregnancy: the role of routine preoperative transvaginal sonography. (5/75)

Although used extensively in the assessment of many gynecological conditions, transvaginal ultrasonography is not performed routinely prior to termination of pregnancy in the UK. We describe a case in which surgical evacuation of the uterus failed. Postoperatively, transvaginal ultrasonography demonstrated a bicornuate uterus with a viable pregnancy within the left horn. Subsequent medical termination of pregnancy was successful. This case shows the potential value of transvaginal ultrasonography prior to termination of pregnancy. A prospective trial is needed to assess whether its routine introduction into clinical practice will lead to a reduction in morbidity resulting from termination.  (+info)

Reproductive health services in rural Washington State: scope of practice and provision of medical abortions, 1996-1997. (6/75)

OBJECTIVES: This study explored reproductive health care in rural Washington State, reasons given by providers for not offering abortions, and providers' willingness to use medical abortifacients. METHODS: Physicians, midwives, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants in rural Washington completed an inventory of reproductive health services that they provide, whether and why they do not perform abortions, and whether they would use medical abortifacients. RESULTS: Of the respondents, 89.2% reported providing reproductive health care. Only 1.2% reported performing surgical abortions, and 26.1% indicated that they would probably prescribe medical abortifacients. CONCLUSIONS: Few providers offer surgical abortions in rural Washington. Greater numbers report a willingness to prescribe medical abortifacients.  (+info)

Attitudes to 'Kaponya Mafumo': the terminators of pregnancy in urban Zambia. (7/75)

As part of a larger study of adolescent sexual and reproductive health in urban Zambia, the issue of unwanted pregnancy and abortion was considered through the examination of the perceptions of both adolescents and adults. Young people rank sexual health as their primary health issue, and sexual behaviour is integrally linked into other aspects of their lives. Pregnancies were deemed to be a common occurrence amongst the adolescents, with an estimated two-thirds of unwanted pregnancies ending in unsafe abortion. The decision to abort is primarily determined by the reaction of the boyfriend and his willingness to accept paternity and the associated financial implications. Other crucial influences are the desire to stay in school and the stigma attached to unwanted pregnancy. The decision-making process regarding the abortion itself is related to the perceived advantages and disadvantages of various service providers. Around 40% of the respondents stated that in the event of an abortion being carried out, it would be performed either by the girl herself or with the assistance of other non-medical personnel. Less popular but still significant are traditional healers and private doctors. Formal health services tend to be rejected due to their poor perception by young people, centred on the lack of privacy and confidentiality, and the de facto illegal nature of abortion itself. The services of nurses are sought, but outside of the clinic setting. The most popular method of self-induced abortion is overdosing on chloroquine. Other methods involve the use of traditional medicines such as various types of roots, as well as more modern methods such as ingesting washing powder. Recommendations for policy-makers concentrate on the improvement of formal, 'youth friendly' health services and the development of appropriate outreach education methods which address specific concerns widely held by young people.  (+info)

Emergency postcoital contraception. (8/75)

Emergency postcoital contraception, a method used to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sexual intercourse, is a highly effective but underutilized birth control option. Two hormone regimens, ethinyl estradiol (100 microg) with levonorgestrel (0.5 mg) or high-dose levonorgestrel (0.75 mg), given within 72 hours of intercourse and repeated 12 hours later, are available for this purpose. These regimens are packaged as Food and Drug Administration labeled, dedicated products or can be adapted for use from standard oral contraceptive pills. Emergency postcoital contraception should be considered as a primary prevention health service to women of childbearing age.  (+info)

Objectives: To study the antiovulatory and abortifacient effects of ethanolic extract of Areca catechu in female rats.Materials and Methods: For antiovulatory effect, ethanolic extract of A. catechu at 100 and 300 mg/kg doses was administered orally for 15 days. Vaginal smears were examined daily microscopically for estrus cycle. Rats were sacrificed on 16th day. Ovarian weight, cholesterol estimation, and histopathological studies were done. Abortifacient activity was studied in rats at 100 and 300 mg/kg doses administered orally from 6th to 15th day of pregnancy. Rats were laparotomised on 19th day. The number of implantation sites and live fetuses were observed in both horns of the uterus. Results: The extract of A. catechu showed a significant decrease in the duration of estrus at 100 mg/kg (P = 0.015) and 300 mg/kg doses (P = 0.002) as compared with control. Metestrus phase was also significantly reduced at 100 mg/kg (P = 0.024) and 300 mg/kg doses (P = 0.002). There was a significant ...
An abortifacient (that which will cause a miscarriage from Latin: abortus miscarriage and faciens making) is a substance that induces abortion. Abortifacients for animals that have mated undesirably are known as mismating shots. Common abortifacients used in performing medical abortions include mifepristone, which is typically used in conjunction with misoprostol in a two-step approach. Oxytocin is commonly used to induce abortion in the second or third trimester. There are also several herbal mixtures with abortifacient claims, though there are no available data on the efficacy of these plants in humans. Prostaglandin analogues, such as misoprostol or gemeprost (both synthetic prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) analogues), are often used to terminate pregnancy up to 24 or 60 days of gestation, in combination with mifepristone (a progesterone receptor antagonist) or methotrexate (an antifolate). Misoprostol administered vaginally is more effective than when administered orally. Misoprostol is ...
The major issue concerns when a new living human being [normally] begins to exist. Scientifically, there is no question whatsoever that [in sexual reproduction]this occurs at fertilization -- in vivo, or in vitro. By the time of implantation, the living human embryo is approximately already 5-7 days old. This is not a religious, prolife, or subjective belief or opinion, but rather it is an objective scientific fact that has been known scientifically for over a hundred years, e.g., with the publication of Wilhelm His (the Father of Human Embryology), Anatomie menschlicher Embryonen (Leipzig: Vogel, 1880-1885). If break-through ovulation has taken place, and if fertilization has taken place, then several chemical effects due to Levonorgestrels mechanisms of action after that point could constitute abortion.
Clinical use of RU 486: control of the menstrual cycle and effect on the hypophyseal-adrenal axis].. Science.gov (United States). Gaillard, R C; Herrmann, W. 1983-01-01. RU 486 is a synthetic 19 norsteroid with a great affinity for progesterone and glucocorticosteroid receptors. The antiprogesterone activity of RU 486 permits interruption of the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle and of early pregnancy, while the antiglucocorticosteroid activity interrupts the feedback mechanisms of cortisol at the hypothalamic-pituitary axis. 11 women aged 18-34 years who were 6-8 weeks pregnant were given daily doses of 200 mg of sensation of lipothymia. Blood pressure and laboratory test results remained normal. The daily increase of beta human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) and progesterone was stopped by the antiprogesterone. It has been demonstrated in vitro that RU 486 inhibits secretion of beta HCG by cells of trophoblastic origin. 2 weeks after expulsion of the products of conception, the blood levels of ...
Media Release - 10 August 2013. A Conspiracy of Silence - Family Planning. Right to Life has on 2nd November 2014 made a new media release on this topic. FLI post on Jadelle. Suggested Read on Jadelle. The Family Planning Association staff are inserting Jadelle implants into the arms of women in violation of their Health rights. Those rights are enshrined in the Health and Disability Act 2000. The rights are, Right 6, Right to be fully informed. Right 7,the Right to Make an Informed Choice and Give Informed Consent. An estimated 40,000 women in New Zealand have had the Long Acting Reversible Contraceptive [LARC] Jadelle implants inserted into their arms since the implants were fully funded by the government in 2010. Many of these women did so in the belief that the implants were solely a contraceptive. They have been cruelly and deliberately deceived for the implant is not only a contraceptive but is also an abortifacient, that is, that it not only prevents new life but it destroys new life.

The principal method of abortifacient birth control is the Pill, which first became widely used in the late 1960s and helped fuel the Sexual Revolution. Here are 5 things you should know about birth control pills.
Posted on 10/04/2009 4:12:50 AM PDT by GonzoII. Abortifacients -- The Other Forbidden Grief. Janet Morana, Associate Director, Priests for Life I was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1952 and grew up educated in Catholic schools. I am the oldest of four children with 14 years separating the oldest to youngest in my family. I graduated college in 1974 and married in 1975. It was a time when my Catholic faith no longer seemed to make sense to me and I gradually drifted away and became a non-practicing Catholic. At the same time all my close friends were getting married and so marriage seemed like the next step to take or so I thought.. I became engaged after dating my future husband for three months. From there things snowballed towards our wedding day real fast. At Pre-Cana classes the priest told us that if there were a really good reason to delay starting a family then birth control pills were an option we could consider. What I didnt realize was that this was bad advice both theologically, ...
If life begins at conception, then inhibiting implantation is comparable to abortion. Incomplete information is being spread out to the public and professionals. We need to be honest to our Christian commuinity whom we love. We need to be aware of these abortifacient effects to make informed decisions, so we do not intentionally or unintentionally sin against God. Some claim there is no abortifacient proof. We, among others, believe the evidence is clear. Until it is proved OCs are non-abortifacient, we strongly recommend abstaining from their use. At a minimum, our people need to be informed. Christian leaders bear the responsibility to inform them. This is our biblical and moral injunction. ...
What is medication abortion?. Medication abortion, also called the abortion pill, is actually a combination of two drugs: Mifeprex and and Misoprostol. When taken together as directed, these two medications will terminate a pregnancy and cause the body to expel it. Its a method of abortion for women in their first ten weeks of pregnancy. Another method of abortion available during the first trimester is aspiration abortion, which is also called surgical abortion.. How does medication abortion work?. Medication abortion works through a combination of two drugs: Mifeprex and Misoprostol. Mifeprex blocks the hormone progesterone, which plays an essential role in maintaining and supporting a pregnancy. When progesterone is blocked, the pregnancy will stop growing. Misoprostol is a drug that causes the uterus to contract, helping the body to expel the pregnancy.. Is medication abortion safe?. Both Mifeprex and Misoprostol are very safe, and have been used by thousands of women to end early ...
Abortion in Japan is available to women in limited circumstances, including endangerment of their health or economic hardship. Chapter XXIX of the Penal Code of Japan makes abortion de jure illegal in the country, but exceptions to the law are broad enough that it is widely accepted and practiced. Meanwhile, the Maternal Health Protection Law allows approved doctors to practice abortion with the consent of the mother and her spouse, if the pregnancy has resulted from rape, or if the continuation of the pregnancy may severely endanger the maternal health because of physical reasons or economic reasons. Anyone trying to practice abortion without the consent of the woman will be punished, including the doctors. No abortifacient has been approved in Japan. Approved doctors, however, can choose to use imported abortifacient under the same terms above. Any other people who abort the fetus using abortifacient will be punished. Emergency contraceptive pills were approved by the Ministry of Health, ...
Contraception is the term used to describe an intentional prevention of the conception of a child. This term may also be used to describe the intentional prevention of pregnancy, which may be defined differently from conception. ==Synopsis== Opinions about contraception have varied in the Orthodox Church. There is complete unanimity that no form of contraception that is abortifacient is acceptable and there are definitive ecumenical canons that proscribe abortifacients. The Fathers of the Church, such as Ss. Athanasius the Great, John Chrysostom, Epiphanios, Jerome, Ambrose, Augustine of Hippo, Caesarious, Gregory the Great, Augustine of Canterbury and Maximos the Confessor, all explicitely condemned abortion as well as the use of abortifacients. However there are a range of opinions on the issue of non-abortifacient contraception. :1) There are those who hold the view that sex should only be for the purpose of procreation, and so even natural family planning would be prohibited. :2)There ...
Pregnancy status: Patients must be non-pregnant (due to teratogenic or abortifacient effects of paclitaxel) from 30 days prior to randomization until 30 days after the last dose of study drug. Women who are not post-menopausal ≥ 52 weeks or surgically sterilized (e.g., hysterectomy, bilateral oophorectomy, bilateral tubal ligation) are considered of childbearing potential. For women of childbearing potential (WOCBP), a serum pregnancy test (β-hCG) must be negative at Screening, and a urine pregnancy test must be negative prior to each dose of study drug ...
Question:. Given the information we now know about the relatively rare but real abortifacient effect of the birth control pill, do you believe it is a sin to use the pill for contraceptive purposes?. Response:. This question has, in recent times, become one of the most frequently asked of all the inquiries I receive. I must confess that, for some time, I have procrastinated in answering, at least in any public forum, this question. There are a couple of reasons for my hesitancy.. First, I did not feel qualified to be a definitive resource about this subject, since I have had no training or experience in the medical or pharmaceutical fields. Please understand, even now, as I tell you what I think about the use of the pill, that I may not use the exact terminology that a medical doctor would use. I answer in terms that I understand.. Second, I hesitated because there are two views that are poles apart in regard to this question, even among those who are recognized as leaders in the pro-life camp. ...

Background: Medical and surgical methods are available for abortions in both the first and second trimester. Aim: To review the evidence base and current recommendations for available methods of abortions in first and second trimesters. Methods: Extensive literature search and review of available guidelines were done. Results: In the first trimester, medical methods are recommended below 7 weeks gestation while vacuum aspiration is an appropriate method between 7 to 12 weeks gestation. In the second trimester, the three methods of abortion available are dilatation and evacuation, intrauterine instillation of abortifacients and administration of systemic abortifacients. Conclusion: The choice of techniques depends on many factors including uterine volume, operator experience, patient preference, medical history and indication for abortion.

At your first full visit, which will last about two hours, your provider will perform an ultrasound exam to ensure that you are no more than 10 weeks pregnant, and will review the medication abortion process with you. While at the Clinic, you will swallow a tablet of Mifeprex. Your provider will then send you home with 4 tablets of Misoprostol and instructions for the next step.. Between 24 and 48 hours after you took Mifeprex at the Clinic, youll take four pills of Misoprostol at home, and you should expect to have cramping and bleeding. For most women, the abortion will be complete within 24 hours after taking Misoprostol. Between 6 and 16 days after your first appointment, youll come back to the Clinic one more time, so your provider can make sure the abortion is complete.. For more information about medication abortion, please take a look at our FAQ.. Have you taken a positive pregnancy test at home, and are you unsure about what next steps to take, or whether medication abortion is the ...

The Connection between Contraception and Abortion. by JANET SMITH. EXCERPT. Many in the pro-life movement are reluctant to make a connection between contraception and abortion. They insist that these are two very different acts that there is all the difference in the world between contraception, which prevents a life from coming to be and abortion, which takes a life that has already begun. With some contraceptives there is not only a link with abortion there is an identity. Some contraceptives are abortifacients; they work by causing early term abortions. The IUD seems to prevent a fertilized egg a new little human being from implanting in the uterine wall. The pill does not always stop ovulation but sometimes prevents implantation of the growing embryo. And, of course, the new RU 486 pill works altogether by aborting a new fetus, a new baby. Although some in the pro-life movement occasional speak out against the contraceptives that are abortifacients most generally steer clear of the issue of ...
We have only one question for Rachel Held Evans on this point: What type of contraception are you referring to? Preventative or abortifacient? While there are many who oppose the usage of contraceptives on moral grounds, contraception is in a different camp than abortion because contraception is meant to prevent the conception of a human being, whereas abortifacients take the life of an unborn human being after it has begun. So even if someone has moral issues with contraception, we should not enforce that moral position in law. We should enforce the moral position that abortion is wrong and should be illegal in law because taking a life is still wrong, even if someone doesnt believe they are actually taking a life (by way of analogy, we should still make infanticide illegal even though there are those who believe infanticide is morally licit and may want to take the life of their infant under certain conditions). Such non-abortifacient contraceptive methods should be accessible and affordable. ...
On December 1, Clintons team replied with an article titled, Ted Cruz says no ones trying to ban contraception. Here are 5 times Ted Cruz tried to ban contraception.. Note how both Cruz and Clinton rely on confusion about the terms at hand. Cruz says conservatives dont want to ban contraceptives-ignoring the fact that many conservatives want to ban abortifacients and consider the pill and IUD to be abortifacients. And Clinton misuses the term contraception to refer to all types of birth control.. Clinton also promotes the confusion between banning something and declining to subsidize it with tax dollars or otherwise promote it with government force. I agree with Cruz that people should not be forced to subsidize birth control and that government ought not interfere with freedom of contract (which can involve employment policies regarding birth control).

Claveaus 28-page Birth Control and Abortifacients begins with a detailed analysis of the various standard methods of contraception, noting their abortifacient action and harmful side effects on women. Claveau pays particular attention to the popular birth control pills that have been widely accepted, even by professedly pro-life women, as a means to reduce the sort of unwanted pregnancies that often end in abortion.. Birth control pills artificially flood a womans body with high levels of hormones in order to produce three main effects on her body: First, the hormones can suppress ovulation, thus preventing the formation of eggs. Second, the hormones can thicken the cervical mucus, thus preventing sperm from reaching the egg. Third, the hormones can alter the uterine lining, thus preventing the fertilized egg from implanting in the uterus that provides the newly formed zygote with the oxygen and nutrients he needs to live.. Early birth control pills contained high levels of progestin and ...
If a woman on the pill has a breakthrough ovulation, the pill-caused changes in the endometrium will increase the chance of an unrecognized, pill-induced loss of a preborn human.. For those who believe that human life begins at fertilization, then any pill-caused post-fertilization loss of life would be, by definition, an abortifacient.. The second letter, from Guttmacher Institute (RH research findings distorted, Inquirer, 7/1/11), claims that the pill only serves to prevent a pregnancy; it does not terminate a pregnancy. It is blatantly false and against all scientific evidence to claim that the pill is an abortifacient.. This letter, purposefully we think, does not tell the readers that the Institute defines pregnancy as beginning at implantation, a full 5-7 days after fertilization, when the unborn human, now called a blastocyst (not a fertilized egg), is made up of roughly 100 or more cells.. Since the pill does not affect an unborn child after implantation and the Institute defines ...
Is there any new material addressing the scientific and ethical questions of the morning after pill and the whole abortifacient issue?. Randy Alcorn has a revised ProLife Answers to ProChoice Arguments as well as his book Why ProLife? published in 2004. He has taken great care to cite all original sources for his readers so that they may use the books not only for reading, but as reference tools. Randy is, as far as I know, the most synthesized writer on the topic. By that I mean that he has done an extraordinary analysis of the available evidence and has put it into a format that is accessible and comprehensible to the average reader.. But there are other good resources that you may wish to check out. One such resource is Pharmacists for Life (PFLI), an international group of pharmacists founded by Dr. B. Kuhar, who oppose filling prescriptions for exogenous hormonal birth control-the pill and other prescribed BC drugs with a known abortifacient affect. They are professionals who are ...
In Dostoyevskys THE HOUSE OF THE DEAD, a fictionalized narrative of his years in prison, most of the inmates, even the worst of them, choose to begin their day with prayers before the icons on the walls of their huge common cell.

As access to abortion services varies widely across the county, national telemedicine medication abortion has the potential to fill in the gaps. The first of these two studies, expands upon the well-documented, recognized safety of telemedicine when used for medication abortion. In this retrospective cohort study, published in Obstetrics & Gynecology in August 2019, almost 6,000 medication abortions were reviewed in four states (Alaska, Idaho, Nevada, and Washington), comparing telemedicine to in-person medication abortions. For patients who followed up after their medication abortion, adverse events were extremely rare in both groups, and ongoing pregnancy was not more common with telemedicine medication abortions. This study adds to what we already know about medication abortion provided through telemedicine: it is safe and acceptable and should be available particularly in areas with limited access to health care resources and/or few abortion providers. Support for the use of telemedicine ...

There are a number of abortion methods used depending upon the gestational age of the baby. The following information and videos have been re-published from Live Action.
The study analyzed the content of 1077 articles in 113 newspapers, from 1992 to 2002, discussing both ECPs and medical abortions (MTP). Of all articles, 44.5% (n=479) included more than one instance of confusion between ECPs and one of the drugs used for MTP, mifepristone. Inaccurate portrayal of ECPs mechanism of action as medical abortion was noted in 31.8% (n=343) of articles, and 13.1% (n=141) inappropriately applied terms such as abortifacient post-coital contraceptives for ECPs. ...
Surgical abortion is performed by appropriately licensed physicians to end unwanted pregnancies. These procedures are typically performed in the first trimester, however may be performed throughout the entire pregnancy certain circumstances. Several symptoms are common after surgical abortion.
These populations were having abortions, too. They patronized less skilled practitioners or tried to induce miscarriages themselves, using knitting needles, hairpins, and scissors. Others ingested folk remedies like slippery elm or the wide array of commercially available abortifacients, which were advertised to women who were Stomach Sick or had Missed Menses. Countless women died or suffered permanent injury, particularly in poor and minority communities.. A 1917 study in St. Louis found that half of white women who received an abortion were induced by a physician or midwife. Lacking access to these services, African-American women pinned their faith on drugs, as the study dryly noted. In the 1930s, Harlem Hospital opened a separate ward to treat the mostly black patients requiring emergency care after botched abortions.. Abortion laws would become even more restrictive in the 1950s, leading to another spike in injuries and deaths. In New York City, where the total number of ...

Cream had emigrated to Canada with his parents as a small child. Though he was set up to inherit his fathers lumber mill, he instead chose to become a physician. The first abortion attributed to him was in April of 1876, shortly after his graduation from medical school. The woman was Flora Elizabeth Brooks, who evidently had been pregnant by Cream. An angry mob stormed the hotel where Flora had taken ill after the abortion, and to escape the wrath of the mob and the girls family, Cream married her. The next day he left for Edinburgh, Scotland, whence he sent his bride some abortifacients, and settled down to study midwifery (obstetrics). Flora died, reportedly from consumption, shortly thereafter. Cream then returned to Canada, and faced another scandal when a young woman, Kate Gardener, was found dead of an overdose of chloroform -- a substance Cream had studied for his doctor thesis. Cream tried to claim that Kate had committed suicide with chloroform because hed refused to perform an ...
Liberals and conservatives sometimes spar over the definition of pregnancy. Some liberals define the term as meaning the period from implantation of an embryo in a mothers womb forward. Conservatives often define it as beginning at the point of conception. Quite a lot can seem to depend on the definition, since it can seem natural to think that a contraceptive, for example, works by preventing pregnancy, and an abortion by disrupting it. Thus, if pregnancy is not initiated until implantation, and an abortion disrupts pregnancy, then drugs that prevent implantation would be considered contraceptive, and not abortifacient. Conservatives rightly resist this claim, and do so by contesting the meaning of pregnancy.. But a better strategy might be to accept the liberal definition of pregnancy, but reject the conclusions that purportedly follow from it. On three issues-contraception, abortion, and embryo-adoption-Ill argue that the liberal definition of pregnancy can actually help clarify what sound ...
Two years ago, a letter was sent to every US bishop with the latest research findings on Plan B, Dr. Kahlenborn said, . . . and I didnt hear from anybody. I was frustrated. Whats wrong? Whats the problem? Are they just all afraid?. Planned Parenthood and other womens abortion centers dispense Plan B at no cost and encourage women to have some on hand in case you need it. The Catholic Health Association, which has taken positions contrary to Church teaching on issues such as the Health and Human Services mandate on contraception coverage in Obamacare health insurance plans has stated that it does not consider Plan B an abortifacient but emergency contraception.. Plan B should be challenged, especially given the pro-life stance of the current administration, since abortion pills should not be sold over the counter to anyone, especially teenagers, Dr. Kahlenborn said.. Dr. Kahlenborn remains convinced that the influential National Catholic Bioethics Center based in Philadelphia has the ...
When used perfectly, it is over 98 percent effective in preventing pregnancy. However, with typical use, it has an annual failure rate of 8 percent.[1] Its method of action is similar to the birth control pill. According to the makers of the ring, it inhibits ovulation, changes the cervical mucus, and changes the endometrium, which reduces the likelihood of a baby implanting in the uterus.[2]. So while it can act as a contraceptive, it also can work as an abortifacient.. Side effects of the ring include heart attack, blood clots, stroke, liver tumors, gallbladder disease, breast cancer, partial or complete loss of vision, retinal lesions, swelling of the optic nerve, forward displacement (bulging) of the eyes, double vision, headache, bleeding irregularities, ectopic pregnancy, yellowing of the skin or eyes, fluid retention, weight gain, emotional disorders, depression, toxic shock syndrome, respiratory tract infection, nausea, infected or inflamed sinuses, elevated blood pressure, bloating, ...

In 1889, Delia Mae Bell, age 14, lived with her mother, Mrs. McDermott, in Birmingham, Alabama and worked in her mothers dressmaking shop. When Delia took violently ill on a Sunday morning, the neighbors were suspicious. The first doctor called to the scene was L.G. Woodson. He arrived about 6:30 and found Delia in convulsions. He gave her a subcutaneous morphine injection then went to breakfast. When he returned, he found her once again convulsing, so he sent for Dr. W.C. Foster. He took note of the convulsions, and of a suspicious bottle. He called in yet another physician, Dr. W.E. Morris. All the aids known to medical science were tried without avail, and about 3 oclock in the afternoon it was decided to resort to an operation. Later, Morris said, There were hurrying feet in the hallways, and then came a hush over the place. The girl was dead. This was Monday, March 25, 1889. The doctors notified the coroner and turned over a bottle to him that had contained an abortifacient traced to ...

Q. So how do you prove that the pill acts as an abortifacient?. A. The answer to this question can be found by comparing the rate of break-through ovulation and the detected pregnancy rate. The ovulation rate has been reported to be about 27 ovulations in 100 women using the pill for one year. But the detected pregnancy rate is much lower at around 4 pregnancies per 100 women using the pill for one year.. As you can see, there is a big difference between the number of women who ovulation (27) and the number of detected pregnancies (4). What has happened within the woman s body to reduce the high ovulation rate to such a low number of detected pregnancies? I suggest that one answer to this important question is that pregnancies have begun, because ovulation and fertilization have occurred, but some of these pregnancies are terminated because implantation cannot take place. The pill has damaged the lining of the womb, stopping implanation.. Q. You talk about the pill causing damage to the lining ...
Sincerely yours, John O. Agwunobi, Assistant Secretary for Health (Bush Supports Contraception Letter) Contraception, of course, of its very evil nature, over and above the fact that most contraceptives serve as abortifacients that kill babies chemically or act to expel fertilized human beings from implanting in the uterus, is denial of the Sovereignty of God over the sanctity and fecundity of marriage.. 6) George Walker Bush made announced at 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 9, 2001, that he was going to permitted the use of Federal taxpayer dollars to fund embryonic stem cell research on embryonic human beings whose lines were created before the time of his announcement. In so doing, of course, Bush authorized the death of those human beings and at the same time justify the immoral, evil practice of in vitro fertilization while doing nothing to stop the privately funded death and destruction of such embryonic human beings on those lines created after the date and time of his ...
On the day we talked about contraception, the second professor started by saying, So its clear where the tradition stands on contraception. But I think its ok. When the few Catholic students in the class and I asked her why, she said, I dont have a theological reason why, I just dont think theres anything wrong with it from my experience. She said she was concerned that the Pill was sometimes abortifacient and so was against its use, but she recommended the use of barrier methods. She said she thought sex did have the dual purpose of unity of the couple and the procreation of children, but that the procreative aspect didnt have to be present every time. I pointed out that any barrier method would be putting a physical separation between the spouses and thus disrupting the unitive aspect as well (its called the barrier method after all). Since throughout the course she had repeatedly said that we needed to take our human physicality seriously in our theology, I thought this would be ...
We are a group of friends, all pro-lifers. Some of us are private medical practitioners-all faceless supporters of the stand of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) against artificial contraception. We would like to express our support to the CBCP not by starting another debate but by enlightening readers and, we hope, our legislators as well, regarding this hot topic, from a theoretical standpoint.. Oral contraceptives (more commonly known as pills), hormonal injectables and Intra-Uterine Devices (IUDs) are all artificial contraceptives. Unfortunately, most people are not aware that they are, indeed, abortifacient. A review of the various literatures on these contraceptives will show that each of them has an efficacy rate that is less than 100 percent because fertilization (the meeting of egg cell and sperm cell, which leads to the conceptus) is not absolutely prevented.. For instance, the IUD does not prevent ovulation and so fertilization may occur several times in the ...

OCLC 781956734.p.150: Mechanism of action Although the precise mechanism of action is not known, currently available IUCs work primarily by preventing sperm from fertilizing ova.26 IUCs are not abortifacients: they do not interrupt an implanted pregnancy.27 Pregnancy is prevented by a combination of the foreign body effect of the plastic or metal frame and the specific action of the medication (copper or levonorgestrel) that is released. Exposure to a foreign body causes a sterile inflammatory reaction in the intrauterine environment that is toxic to sperm and ova and impairs implantation.28,29 The production of cytotoxic peptides and activation of enzymes lead to inhibition of ...
I live in Texas and have followed this closely as I am also a pro-life activist. The so-called Womens Health Program is nothing more than a subsidized family planning exam once per year for women so they will receive contraceptives and not have babies on Medicaid. I encourage everyone to read - from the states own website - what this program is and is not. It is not comprehensive healthcare and is extremely limited in what it does. Scroll down to Covered Services and read carefully: http://www.hhsc.state.tx.us/help/WHP/index.shtml. It is above all a means to provide low-income women with contraceptives, some of which are abortifacient and/or carcinogenic. The screenings this family planning exam might include are limited, if they are offered at all. NOTE: It does not say they have to be done. Nor does the PAP smear have to be done. They merely might be done. Most of these screenings are the kind that would be done to see if a particular contraceptive is contraindicated due to some ...
Exotic ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Doug. ex Lawson) plantations are being planted within the natural distribution area of cordilleran cypress (Austrocedrus chilensis (D.Don) Pic. Ser. et Bizzarri) in Patagonia, Argentina. The productivity of these exotic plantations is much greater than that of native forests, suggesting greater water use. Before these plantations become widespread, it is crucial to determine what effects ponderosa pine plantations may have on scarce water resources in the region. In the first study, I examined the seasonal variation in transpiration and soil water depletion for four forest stands: high and low density ponderosa pine plantations, and high and low density cordilleran cypress stands. Measurements were taken during two growing seasons with contrasting amounts of precipitation. Transpiration was greater in ponderosa pine than in cordilleran cypress stands of similar density. The high density ponderosa pine plot used a greater amount of water from deeper soil ...
Achyranthes aspera L. (Apang locally) belongs to the family Amaranthaceae, is a highly significant medicinal herb found almost everywhere in Bangladesh. The herbs are produced by using traditional propagation and in vitro techniques. Micropropagation is a rapid propagation technique, but the greatest problem is contamination with fungi and bacteria. We analyzed the effects of Nistatin, Flugal, Bavistin, Ridomil gold, and HgCl2 on surface sterilization to obtain desirable asepsis. However, among the different sterelants, Flugal 3% for 10min followed by 0.1% HgCl2 for 2-3min was the most effective treatment when field-grown plants (node) were used as explants. At higher concentration, fungicides were showed maximum effects against contaminants although survival percentages were low. This is the first report of successful sterilization and reduced contamination of explants from naturally field grown A. aspera L. by different sterilizing agents.. Keywords: Achyranthes aspera L., surface ...

There are two other things to consider before you read, What is an abortion? that we will not discuss in this article: abortifacients and therapeutic abortions. Among the induced abortions, there is a difference between therapeutic abortions (ectopic pregnancies, maternal cancer, maternal heart disease, other health of the mother issues) and convenience abortions (eugenic and family planning). Abortifacients, a drug that causes an abortion, commonly called the Morning After Pill or the Plan-B pill, can work after conception and before implantation - which would fit our working definition of abortion. We will talk about these issues in our next article, The Ethics of Abortion. For now, well discuss different procedures for an abortion, which are commonly agreed upon ...
Union filed a lawsuit April 4 seeking an injunction against the contraceptive mandate of the Affordable Care Act. The lawsuit states that the mandate violates the universitys religious belief in the importance of protecting unborn life.. The mandate requires employers to provide all Food and Drug Administration-approved contraceptive methods, sterilization procedures and patient education and counseling for all women with reproductive capacity, according to Unions memorandum.. According to the memorandum, Union objects to four of these contraceptive methods: the emergency contraceptives ella and Plan B and two intrauterine devices.. Union has provided for years contraceptives as part of their health plan, said Samuel W. Dub Oliver, president-elect of the university. What we have excluded are these abortifacients. … The overarching issue is religious liberty. The confronting issue is the abortifacients.. Until this spring, the mandate did not apply to Union because the university was ...
Interruption of a pregnancy after 14 weeks gestation may be required when the fetus is dead, severely malformed or in cases of maternal illness. This process is usually conducted medically in Australia, using the synthetic prostaglandin E1 analogue misoprostol. This prostaglandin, although not licensed for use in pregnancy termination, is now a common abortifacient with a large accumulated experience both within Australia and internationally. Since 1996, misoprostol has been used at King Edward Memorial Hospital as the principal agent for second trimester pregnancy termination.. Misoprostol may be administered vaginally, orally, sublingually or buccally in the process of pregnancy termination. Each route of administration has its own advantages and disadvantages. The most appropriate route of administration, with the shortest duration of abortion and lowest side-effect profile has not been determined for all circumstances.. The combination of mifepristone and misoprostol is an established and ...

Medication abortion is safe and effective and makes up about one in three abortion procedures in the United States. The most effective regimen for medication abortion involves two medications - mifepristone and misoprostol - taken in conjunction to terminate a pregnancy up to 10 weeks gestation. The nature of medication abortion gives it the potential to be accessible outside of the traditional healthcare setting - meaning people could have more control and autonomy over their abortion experience. However, abortion access is restricted in the US, including how medication abortion pills can be dispensed. In addition to state laws that restrict medication abortion, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires that mifepristone be dispensed only at a doctors office, clinic, or hospital, and that clinicians who wants to provide medication abortion have to register with the drugs distributor and stock the medication in their offices. These rules restrict access to mifepristone. A group of ...
This week is simultaneously a very slow week in K-dramaland since there isnt a new drama premiering, but also a very anxious week for the fans of The Masters Sun which is wrapping up in mere hours. Two Weeks ended last week on MBC so its follow up drama the geniuses-in-one-hospital medical drama Medical Top Team was slated to premiere on October 2nd. But in a twist of executive decision, MBC has announced that its delayed MTT for one week - and one can only speculate if its to avoid the finale week of TMS or to take up the Heirs challenge and go head-to-head with that jam-packed high school drama. Either way, I like it. You gotta pick your poison and I think MBC has decided the unknown Heirs is a better bet than the current Wed-Thurs night ratings leader TMS. With that said, the cast of MTT held their press conference already last week, which hilariously means the delayed by a week broadcast decision was likely made at the very last minute. I worry a bit for MTT because now all the ...
Pinus ponderosa is a large coniferous pine (evergreen) tree. The bark helps to distinguish it from other species. Mature to over-mature individuals have yellow to orange-red bark in broad to very broad plates with black crevices. Younger trees have blackish-brown bark, referred to as blackjacks by early loggers. Ponderosa pines five subspecies, as classified by some botanists, can be identified by their characteristically bright-green needles (contrasting with blue-green needles that distinguish Jeffrey pine). The Pacific subspecies has the longest-7.8 in (19.8 cm)-and most flexible needles in plume-like fascicles of three. The Columbia ponderosa pine has long-4.7-8.1 in (12.0-20.5 cm)-and relatively flexible needles in fascicles of three. The Rocky Mountains subspecies has shorter-3.6-5.7 in (9.2-14.4 cm)-and stout needles growing in scopulate (bushy, tuft-like) fascicles of two or three. The southwestern subspecies has 4.4-7.8 in (11.2-19.8 cm), stout needles in fascicles of three ...

Fire suppression and other factors have resulted in high wildfire risk in the western US, and prescribed burning can be an effective tool for thinning forests and reducing fuels to lessen wildfire risks. However, prescribed burning sometimes fails to substantially reduce fuels and sometimes damages and kills valuable, large trees. This study compared fuel reductions between spring and fall prescribed burns and tested whether removing (i.e., raking) fuels within 1 m of boles reduced fire damage to ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Douglas ex Lawson & C. Lawson). In 2007 and 2008, raking was applied to alternating trees along 18 transects in central Oregon, USA. Fuels surrounding 292 trees were burned in fall 2010, and fuels surrounding 216 trees were burned in spring 2012. Both seasons of burn affected most fuel size classes similarly, with one exception being duff, which was more fully consumed in fall than in spring. Where fall burning occurred, raking reduced the percentage of dead cambium samples from
Nutmeg intoxication has scantily been reported in the literature. Such reports span the period between 1908 and present day, although some claim that the first reported evidence of its effects was reported by Lobelius in 1576.1,2 Most cases concern attempts to achieve an euphoric and hallucinogenic state at low cost. Previous reports include ingestion of grated or whole nutmegs, mixing of the spice with coffee, vodka or other alcohol, and concurrent use with cannabis. This time the method reported of blending within a milkshake, although novel simply illustrates the ingenuity of the people in search of a low cost buzz. Nutmeg is an easily obtainable household item, originally imported from the Caribbean spice islands. It is known to have medicinal benefit as an antidiarrhoeal agent in selected cases3 but also as an emmenagogue, carminative, and abortifacient agent.4 Attempts at nutmeg induced euphoria are said to have been common in the hippie culture of the 1960s and 1970s. It has also been ...

Mifepristone is also sometimes used to end pregnancies when more than 49 days have passed since the womans last menstrual period; as an emergency contraceptive after unprotected sexual intercourse (morning-after pill); to treat tumors of the brain, endometriosis (growth of uterus tissue outside the uterus), or fibroids (noncancerous tumors in the uterus); or to induce labor (to help start the birth process in a pregnant woman).. ...

Cytotec or misoprostol is a medication approved for treating stomach ulcers. Though it is not FDA approved for that purpose, obstetricians and hospitals often use Cytotec for inducing labor. There are potentially serious problems associated with Cytotec during pregnancy. When given early in pregnancy, Cytotec could act as an abortifacient, a drug to induce an abortion or termination of the pregnancy. Later in pregnancy Cytotec can induce contractions of the uterus and labor. Like with many other medications during pregnancy, all patients given Cytotec must be thoroughly informed about its benefits and risks (informed consent).. From the FDA: This Patient Information Sheet is for pregnant women who may receive misoprostol to soften their cervix or induce contractions to begin labor.

Abortion is a crime under the 1861 Offences Against the Person Act. The Abortion Act creates an exception, making abortion on licensed premises lawful under specific conditions. When two doctors agree that continuing the pregnancy is a greater risk than the abortion to the life or health of the mother or any of her existing children, abortion is lawful up to 24 weeks gestation. Terminations up to full term are permitted in exceptional circumstances: if continuing the pregnancy would involve greater risk to the life of the woman than terminating it; if abortion is necessary to prevent grave permanent injury to the physical or mental health of the woman; or if there is a substantial risk that the child would be born with serious disability.. Abortions under any other circumstances are unlawful. If a woman obtains abortifacient drugs online and uses them at home to terminate a pregnancy, even before 12 weeks gestation, she commits an offence under the 1861 act that is punishable by a maximum ...

Mifepristone is a synthetic steroid compound used as a pharmaceutical. It is a progesterone receptor antagonist used as an abortifacient in the first months of pregnancy, and in smaller doses as an emergency contraceptive. Mifepristone is also a powerful glucocorticoid receptor antagonist, and has occasionally been used in refractory Cushings Syndrome (due to ectopic/neoplastic ACTH/Cortisol secretion). During early trials, it was known as RU-38486 or simply RU-486, its designation at the Roussel Uclaf company, which designed the drug. The drug was initially made available in France, and other countries then followed-often amid controversy. It is marketed under tradenames Mifegyne, Zacafemyl and Mifeprex. ...
However, abortion statistics, such as appear in any World Almanac, only measure medical procedures, including the use of prescription abortifacients like the Abortion Pill. What is rarely understood in this issue is the fact that the most popular means of birth control actually partly relies upon inducing early abortion, and is very likely responsible for many times as many abortions as occur in counted procedures. Hormonal medications of this sort include The Pill, and Norplant, as well as the numerous herbal solutions which share the same or similar chemical properties and are thus employed in third world countries as a less expensive alternative to the manufactured pharmaceuticals that they mimic. All these chemicals operate simultaneously on many levels, primarily by preventing ovulation and hindering sperm, but also by preventing implantation (and thus causing expulsion) of an egg that, despite all else, is fertilized anyway. In other words, all chemical forms of birth control, ...

Abortion Pills can be utilized something like 24 weeks of pregnancy. Whats in store relies on upon whether the pregnancy is not exactly or over ten weeks. Ladies take two medicines one to two days separated. The first medication to take is Mifeprex. It prevents one of the hormones (progesterone) that is imperative for early pregnancies to create and further develop. By hindering this hormone, the pregnancy stops, and the cervix of the uterus starts to mellow and turn delicate. The second pharmaceutical is Misoprostol, a prostaglandin that causes the uterus to contract (like work) and oust the pregnancy. This causes issues and bleeding. After two weeks you ought to return for a follow-up ultrasound examination to check that your uterus is void and that the fetus removal was finished.. We at abortion-online.com give a safe therapeutic abortion to all ladies around the globe by offering abortifacient drugs at a reasonable cost. These pharmaceuticals are ensured to be genuine and fruitful ...

Fifty-eight trials were included in the review. The effectiveness outcomes below refer to failure to achieve complete abortion with the intended method unless otherwise stated. 1) Combined regimen mifepristone/prostaglandin: Mifepristone 600 mg compared to 200 mg shows similar effectiveness in achieving complete abortion (4 trials, RR 1.07, 95% CI 0.87 to 1.32). Misoprostol administered orally is less effective (more failures) than the vaginal route (RR 3.00, 95% CI 1.44 to 6.24) and may be associated with more frequent side effects such as nausea and diarrhoea. Sublingual and buccal routes were similarly effective compared to the vaginal route, but had higher rates of side effects. 2) Mifepristone alone is less effective when compared to the combined regimen mifepristone/prostaglandin (RR 3.76 95% CI 2.30 to 6.15). 3) Five trials compared prostaglandin alone to the combined regimen (mifepristone/prostaglandin). All but one reported higher effectiveness with the combined regimen. The results ...
Life begins at fertilization (conception), that moment when a sperm joins with an ovum (egg) to form one cell called a zygote. The characteristics of this new person, such as sex, eye and hair color, intelligence, etc. are determined as he or she inherits 23 chromosomes from each parent at fertilization. This tiny child then travels down the Fallopian tube into the uterus. The new human implants herself in the rich lining of the uterus and begins to draw nourishment. This process takes approximately 5 to 10 days to complete. Reproductive rights advocates try to confuse the issue by redefining that fact of when life begins. They often propose that a pregnancy does not begin until implantation, not fertilization, and therefore argue that many birth control methods we call abortifacient arent since they act before implantation, before life, they say, exists. But according to medical texts and agreed upon by medical and biological professionals, life begins at fertilization. ...
Editor, the Advocate: The Victoria Advocates recent story on free birth control, Oct. 5, might want to follow up with a disclaimer saying they just took it off the wire service because it turns out the report was false. Seventy-five percent of the women on the survey had the IUD inserted, and it is well known that the IUD causes an early abortion.. According to the IUD brochure information insert, when a newly formed baby is present, the IUDs act as abortifacients, killing the newly conceived human being, which actually leads to an increase, not decrease, in total abortions, so said Brian Cloves, director of research for Human Life International.. In addition, giving free birth control to teenagers is what the Obama health care is about. The birth control drug is a steroid! We kick players off the team if they take steroids, but we want to give them to girls? Are our girls guinea pigs? The IUD also has serious side effects which are also outlined in their brochure: abscesses, embedding in the ...

As Tevington comments at the close of his analysis,. When we do not shy away from the destructiveness of abortifacients/contraceptives, our arguments and witness can be enormously more effective. A case in point is the response to a 6/6/12 piece in the NY Times, which had maintained that: Leading scientists say studies . . . provide strong evidence that Plan B does not prevent implantation, and no proof that a newer type of pill, Ella, does. . . . Controversy over emergency contraception is figuring in the presidential race and debates over the Obama administrations healthcare law. Many experts responded with factual information exposing where the New York Times had gone awry by using the facts to debunk the phony sham which the Times has consistently preached as fact. Among them is Pharmacist for Life Internationals president Karen Brauer, who wrote: Laughably entertaining is the suggestion that there is no time for levonorgestrel [clinical name for morning-after pill] to affect thickness ...
And if the Obama regime really did care about freedom of religion and tolerance for all religions, then it would not be trying to compel the Catholic Church to violate its teachings by using its funds to provide contraceptives and abortifacients to people, or require that, as part of its services to victims of human trafficking, that they take those victims to abortion clinics; or require that the Church include in its adoption services the placement of children with same-sex couples or other situations that are contrary to Church teaching, not to mention the best interests of the children ...
And to show that this IS largely scare tactics, this article has a pretty good write-up on how modern IUDs are not like the Dalkon Shield of old.. Around this time, dominionist groups started pushing for conscience clauses in legislatures to allow doctors, nurses and religious hospitals to opt out of being made to perform or even learn about abortion. Most states were happy to go along with this, figuring that secular providers would fill the gap so to speak.. Dominionist groups next (and this actually started in the mid to late 80s, to my recollection; I remember seeing this sort of stuff in the Kentucky Right to Life newsletters at this point) started targeting the birth control pill claiming both that it made women more promiscuous and that it, too, was an abortifacient because it can be used as a morning after pill. The same dominionist site claims this not only about the birth control pill but about every hormonal method of birth control, including NorPlant and Depo-Provera.. This ...
July 17, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In the epic battle between the American Catholic bishops and the Obama Administration over being forced to pay for contraceptive coverage, the efforts of the bishops have been undermined time and again by individual Catholics and Catholic entities that support contraception. One major example of this is within the Bishops own jurisdiction. Catholic Relief Services (CRS), the official overseas relief and development agency of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has recently given millions to an organization that doles out contraceptives, including abortifacient emergency contraception.. The most recent CRS annual returns (2010) indicate that the largest CRS grant - $5.3 million - went to CARE, an international relief and development organization, that actively promotes and provides contraceptives for women in developing countries, and supports pro-abortion groups and legislation.. According to the 2010 990s, CRS gave $5,380,466 to CARE, which is noted ...
Solstice Scents opinion is to avoid all fragranced and/or essential oil products while pregnant or nursing, especially in the first trimester. You may do your own research on the safety of using perfumes and fragrances while pregnant or nursing. Essential oils, fragrances and absolutes may pass into the bloodstream and may even cross the placental barrier. Not all oils are of concern, but Mothers should be cautious, especially in the first tri-mester. Some essential oils stimulate menstruation, are abortifacient, lower blood pressure and produce a myriad of other effects internally and externally and it is advised you exercise caution and be informed. Products which contain oils that we are aware should not be used while pregnant or nursing contain a warning at the top of the listing, above the description, though we still feel that unscented products are better for pregnant or nursing mothers. You may also wish to spray your perfumes conservatively on clothing instead of wearing them directly ...

A recently-graduated engineering student from Tulane University is attempting to make his millions by turning his senior project into a business. Ben Cappiello and his colleagues seek to better the lives of women around the world by improving the delivery system for the controversial contraceptive/abortifacient intrauterine device, commonly called the IUD. Unfortunately, like so many problems our world faces today, the medical flaws and dangers inherent to IUDs cannot be fixed by a mechanical device.. When pushing the frontiers of any science, mistakes are bound to happen despite the best efforts and intentions of all involved. This has proven particularly true in the science of health care where innovative, but misguided treatments, have from time to time caused significant pain, or even death rather than the healing and restorative qualities sought. Some of these erroneous attempts to advance medicine have endured longer and proliferated more widely through the current medical community ...
