Live Action News also weighs in on the emergency contraceptives as abortifacients debate:
“Many doctors and researchers,” the authors elaborate, “claim that it has either no – or at most – an extremely small chance of working via abortion.” But “the latest scientific and medical evidence now demonstrates that levonorgestrel emergency contraception theoretically works via abortion quite often.”
For those who couldn’t make it to the March for Life, Fr. Frank Pavone has posted his sermon from the National Prayer Service:
