M.D. Straightens Out Reporter: yes, “emergency contraception” can cause abortion

A pro-life  physician has taken up an argument that goes straight to the heart of the HHS Mandate cases now before the Supreme Court.

Donna Harrison, M.D. is executive director of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists. When she read a recent essay by a prominent reporter who disputed the abortion-inducing nature of some so-called contraceptives, she picked up her pen to set the medical record straight. Here’s a link to her article in The Public Discourse.


Dr. Harrison defends medical facts that are being challenged politically, even by some medical colleagues. In doing so, she’s standing up for the First Amendment as well as for biology.

“Levonorgestrel IUDs and Ella can and do cause embryos to die after fertilization. Americans who are opposed to the killing of unborn human beings shouldn’t be forced by the government to provide coverage for such drugs that can end a human life.”
