Emergency contraceptive kills implanted baby

Being a pharmacy student is tough. Being a pro-life pharmacy student is even tougher. I am accused of making things up and I am always told that what we dispense over the counter are not abortifacients. Well, here is a piece of information that could change that mindset. From NBC:

A woman who sought help from a prominent Connecticut fertility center last year received embryos, but they belonged to another woman with the same last name.

The mistake happened in April 2009 at the Center for Advanced Reproductive Services at the University of Connecticut Health Center, which will pay a $3,000 fine.

A lab technician only checked the last name on the container with the embryos and pulled the wrong ones from frozen storage, according to the state Department of Public Health. Procedure is to check the medical record number and last four digits of the Social Security number.

That patient who received the embryos was informed of the error within an hour and decided to take the “morning after” pill to prevent the pregnancy, according to state records.

Actually, NBC, she did more than just prevent a pregnancy. She aborted a new human life, but I guess we can let that slide. So, if the Plan B package insert does not convince you that emergency contraception can act as an abortifacient, hopefully the above article will help steer you in the right direction.
