Last week, this glossy 8 1/2 by 11 ad was an insert in Indiana University's campus paper, the Indiana Daily Student. I glanced at it, did a double take, and looked more closely. Here we have the final step in the abortion wars. Day-after, day-day-after, or day-day-day-after abortifacient drugs are now mainstream enough that the expense of placing this ad in the IDS is justified by Barr Pharmaceutical's expected profits.
Brush aside needless distinctions between a fertilized ovum not yet implanted and a fertilized ovum implanted on the uterine wall and "Plan B" pills can be called "contraception"--something that prevents conception. But is there anyone left on this earth who really believes that human life does not begin at the moment of conception, but rather when the fertilized ovum succeeds in finding a home in his mother's uterus?
Then I flip the ad over and, irony of ironies, read the following small text. Really, so sad. Let us pray for our nation.
