"Does the Orthodox Church have a position on the morality of abortaficiant contraceptives, such as the pill, the depo shot, norplant, IUD etc, all of which agknowledge at least the possibility of having abortaficiant side effects?"

Abortion is murder. That's the Orthodox position.

And abortaficiants are recognized as such and are condemned?

I am not trying to badger you, I hope it doesn't come across that way. I am feeling especially think tonight, been battling my daughter on eating brocoli. Apparently the only way that will work is if you eat it as though you are Cookie Monster.

So that's the brain cell level I'm at right now...thanks for your patience.

Abortion is murder. That's the Orthodox position.

But, according to a previous post, the decision to use 'artificial birth control' (i.e. an abortaficient), is okay. Please clarify the diffference for us. When is it 'okay' to abort an unborn child, in the Orthodox Church, using artificial birth control?
