News stories declaring that Cardinal Meisner will allow the "morning-after" pill for rape victims were the result of his words being manipulated and scientists giving him inaccurate information about the drug, according to Cardinal Meisner a leading physician. "It seems that the cardinal's words were manipulated," Doctor Jose Maria Simon Castellvi told EWTN News Feb. 7.

Let me know when the Cardinal makes the same claim.

Cardinal Meisner subsequently met with medical experts about the morning-after pill and they told him the latest research indicated the drug does not have anti-implantation effects.

I thought implantation-prevention was the whole point of the "morning-after" pill. If it doesn't have that effect, why administer it (not that I'm trying to make a case for it)?

... both of them refused to admit her, since the prescribed course of treatment would involve using the morning-after pill, known in the U.S. as Plan B.

Why? Couldn't the hospitals treat a claimed rape victim for any physical injuries, shock, and effects of the drugs/alcohol she may have ingested, and take samples for law enforcement use, but not perform a conditional abortion?

If the woman is near ovulation, it will prevent ovulation so if given right after a rape (within hours) it will stop ovulation and the woman getting pregnant.

However, if the woman is already pregnant (before the rape, for example) or if she comes in a day or two later, and you give her the medicine, it will thin the lining of the uterus so the fertilized egg can’t implant. So it is also abortifactant.

One new thing that has come up is that the sperm travel faster and impregnate the woman faster than we used to think. So now it is believed that most cases are from the abortifactant qualities.

The problem is that the pill is now being pushed as contraceptive, not abortion causing, as a routine “birth control” measure. And the pro aborts, knowing this, have redefined “pregnancy” to mean implantation of an embryo,not the fertilization of an embryo. Change the definition, and voila, you can deny you are destroying a life.

So the church has to push back from the “fuzzy” areas...
