The title of this little book on a friend’s bookcase recently caught my attention. I hadn’t realized until recently that this was a question that should be asked. As I have become involved in sidewalk ministry outside our local abortion clinic and become more a tune to pro-life issues I had heard this question raised and I didn’t know the answer. Mr. Alcorn has done thorough research and takes an honest look at the evidence he’s found in medical journals and drug manufacturer publications, as we ...more

Well-organized reference on the 3 effects of birth control pills (as recorded from pill literature, dr. interviews, manufacturer customer service, etc)

Heavy foundation of reference with 1 chapter of application

Tons of footnotes and research (139 footnotes)

Overwhelmed by the medical jargon at times...a little slow due to nature of the amount of research/presentation

Worth the price of the book for the last chapter and grace-filled conclusion (Alcorn's applications and how to respond to tough quest

In answer to the question in the book's title, I had vaguely heard some people say that it did, and vaguely heard other people say that it didn’t, but hadn’t thought much about it beyond that, until I came across this. (The short answer is “sometimes.”) This book changed and clarified my thinking on the subject. If anyone has ever told you that the Pill is safe for the earliest stages of lif

To this day, I don't understand why this isn't taught and shared by Christian leaders. If true (and I have confirmed as much with a non-Christian head of OB/Gyn at Kaiser), a large % of Christians are committing abortion unknowingly.
This book was written great, with fabulous research and pure logical arguments that Christian's and non-Christians would have to concede the event of abortions in the pill.
