Contraception: “We have been duped” by AMA, drug companies
To the Editor:
My 87-year-old mother often says, "What has happened to America?" I believe we've gradually accepted wrong for right, and that to turn the Ship of State around, we should correct the worst – first!
The greatest evil is the untimely death of innocent children. Thanks to the editorial by Celia Murray in the "Citizen," one truth I've been trying to convey to fellow Christians has been openly declared by a liberal Democrat! To quote her, "The IUD and the birth control pill would be illegal because they prevent fertilized eggs from implanting in the uterine wall, again, 'murdering' them." TRUE!
The destruction of life comes when a days-old baby (which we all were
at one time) has traveled down the fallopian tube to the womb, only to be met with a chemically induced hostile environment. At the (possibly lucrative) urging of powerful drug companies, the American Medical Association agreed to change the definition of "conception" from "fertilization" to "implantation," and thereby being able to advertise that the birth control pill prevents "conception" (IMPLANTATION) 99-plus percent of the time.
How can we Christians rail against abortion if we're not willing to say we've been wrong, pray, seek God's face, and turn from our wicked ways. We need God to hear from Heaven, forgive our sins, and heal our land.
We have been duped, and we're not willing to face facts. The Bible says that, "Wisdom is justified of her children," and in this case, verified by a pro-abortion advocate.
