Birth Control

Alcorn, Randy – Does the Birth Control Pill Cause Abortions?,  Buy  1997, 197 pages

The birth control pill works in three ways: (1) by inhibiting ovulation, (2) thickening the cervical mucus, and (3) thinning and shriveling the lining of the uterus to the point that it is unable or less able to facilitate the implantation of the newly-fertilized egg.  

This third effect of “The Pill” is abortive.  Alcorn’s short and very readable book is heavily documented with scientific journals and is Biblically accurate.
