Pro Life? Believe That Life Begins At Conception?

You may want to read this:

If all oral contraceptive users converted to the rhythm method, then they would be effectively causing the deaths of millions of embryos.

Similarly, regular condom users, whose choice of contraception is deemed to be 95% effective in preventing pregnancy, would "cause less embryonic deaths than the rhythm method," he says.

"...the rhythm method may well be responsible for massive embryonic death, and the same logic that turned pro-lifers away from morning after pills, IUDs, and pill usage, should also make them nervous about the rhythm method," he contends.


  • "these techniques block the implantation of a conceived ovum."

    Those in the pro-life movement who are against contraception (I am not) could argue that the rhythm method is natural, depending on the body's responses, whereas the other methods involve appliances and chemicals introduced into the body.

    Conversely, embryos are disposed of as nature intended in the rhythm method, while in other embryo destructions (IVF and embryonic stem cell research) embryos are destroyed by the whim of humans.
