The nation's largest organization of women's health professionals said Tuesday that it now supports allowing over-the-counter sales of all oral contraceptives.
But since abortifacients — which are designed to cause a newly impregnated egg to miscarry — are among the medications in question, Dr. Harrison said, ACOG is doing its member doctors a disservice by failing to determine whether or not most are pro-choice or pro-life.
"Birth control pills are powerful hormones and those powerful hormones can cause problems like blood clots and strokes and, in some cases, increased risk of heart attack," said Dr. Harrison, a leading member of a group of physicians within ACOG who are pro-life. "This is not a contraceptive issue as much as it is a women's health and safety issue."
