I’ve never been to Planned Parenthood or a clinic for any type of pills. But once in a phone call with a friend of mine, she mentioned that she had taken the Morning After Pill a couple of times.
I was stunned. She’s not exactly religious. She’s the “norm” for a person in this society and she was having sex with her boyfriend. But, I didn’t say anything.
My question is this though, when you go to one of those places, do they explain exactly how the pill works?
My understanding is that the Morning after Pill prevents implentation, it doesn’t prevent the egg and sperm from joing. To me that’s the same as leaving a newborn baby out in a forest to fend for itself. To me it’s like abortion because you’re not giving the life in you a chance to grow. It’s already a life and you’re depriving that life of what it needs to live.
So do those places that give you that pill explain that to you? Because I don’t know if she knows what she really did. I remember once I heard Dr.Drew on that radio show “LoveLine” how great the Morning After Pill was because it would prevent abortions. I want to call there one day and give him my two cents. I’ll probably get attacked, but a lot of young people listen to that show.
Either way, I plan to tell her. We don’t talk much anymore. I just really didn’t know how to handle it and I was uncomfortable. I feel like a prude and an outsider. It might break our already fading friendship.
Do you memembers consider the Morning after Pill a form of abortion? I do.
