I wanted to share the link with you for a guest post we have on our blog for CPT Worldwide. She is a pharmacy student who was convicted by the Lord about the abortive qualities of the contraceptive pill. It is excellent and I know there are many who do not know this information.
Testimony of the Pill ….. and God’s Grace – Part 1
The summer before I turned 19 I was running and training pretty hard for the cross country team. Because of this, my periods were very light and only showed up every 6-8 weeks. My doctor’s solution was to put me on the pill – which I was actually pretty excited about because I had heard it helped with acne. I really had no reason to take the pill, but also no reason to stop taking the pill.
A few years later, I was in class learning about the mechanism of action of the pill. We learned that the pill contains two synthetic hormones: estradiol and a progesterone. Together these hormones suppress the body’s natural reproductive hormone system to prevent ovulation. They also thicken the cervical mucus to prevent sperm from entering the uterus as well has alter the endometrium, or lining of the uterus, so that if an egg were fertilized it would not be able to implant. We were taught that 2-5% of the time, estradiol does not prevent ovulation, and therefore the other mechanisms are relied upon for the 99.9% efficacy that the pill boasts. What this all means is that in a small percentage of people or cycles, ovulation can occur, but if it does and conception occurs, the egg will be aborted because it cannot properly implant…………..
