"Contact CVS, Walgreens and Rite Aid!" We MUST oppose all abortifacients – devices and chemicals - and not only mifepristone. “Not succumbing to duplicitous and novel wording, Church teaching still equates conception with fertilization – both being the very first moment of new life when the sperm meets the egg. While others may acknowledge that human life starts at conception, a bait and switch claims conception does not take place till implantation – making some early abortions only contraceptive….Such pro-abortion semantics allow for the erroneous claim that a drug acts only in a contraceptive manner when it might very well act in an abortifacient manner. Whether a so-called contraceptive ends a new life after implantation or possibly interferes with implantation after fertilization, both “fall within the sin of abortion and are gravely immoral” (Catholic Stand, 12/7/2022)
