Hormonal birth control is responsible for the murder of preborn children.
A single sperm and a single egg meet in the Fallopian tube. Conception occurs when the sperm enters the egg, the combination forming a single-celled human being called a zygote. The zygote immediately begins to divide and form a ball of cells called a blastocyst. This blastocyst is made up of an inner group of cells that will develop into the vital organs of a growing human being, and an outer group of cells that will become membranes which will nourish and protect this human. Once this young human reaches the uterus, it travels towards the endometrium on the uterine wall, but instead of implanting there and receiving nourishment from his mother’s blood, the endometrium gives way, flushed out, expelling the child and killing him in the process.
It does not help that culture wants to deceitfully muddy the definition of pregnancy. According to “leading medical authorities”— such as the National Institutes of Health and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists – pregnancy begins when the fertilized egg (independent and unique offspring) implants in the lining of a woman’s uterus. Implantation begins five to seven days after sperm fertilizes the egg (when a human being is created), and the process is completed several days later. When the product inserts for hormonal birth control say that their substances, devices, and mechanisms prevent pregnancy, they are including the fact that they prevent human beings from ever implanting in the one place a young child at that stage of development goes to for survival- the uterine wall. Therefore, birth control kills children made in God’s image, of the flesh and blood of the mother who is administering birth control and of the father who fails to disallow its use. “Preventing pregnancy” in this case means abandoning the child downstream on a river of blood, starving him to death by preventing him from ever making the initial attachment to his mother’s womb. This reality applies to every form of hormonal birth control and chemical contraception.
“Combination oral contraceptives act by suppression of gonadotropins. Although the primary mechanism of this action is inhibition of ovulation, other alterations include changes in the cervical mucus, which increase the difficulty of sperm entry into the uterus, and changes in the endometrium which reduce the likelihood of implantation.” Here is a more thorough analysis of the abortifacient nature of the birth control pill.
(Physicians’ Desk Reference. Montvale, NJ: Medical Economics, 1998)
“…inhibits the secretion of gonadotropins which, in turn, prevents follicular maturation and ovulation and results in endometrial thinning.” When the endometrium, the lining of the uterus, is thinned, it is rendered hostile to implantation. This means that Depo-Provera sometimes acts as an abortifacient, since it ends the life of a new human being after conception.

Intrauterine Devices (IUDs)
“This IUD prevents fertilization by damaging or killing sperm and making the mucus in the cervix thick and sticky, so sperm can’t get through to the uterus. It also keeps the lining of the uterus (endometrium) from growing very thick.” This makes the lining a poor place for a fertilized egg to implant and grow.
(Grimes DA. 2007. Intrauterine devices. In RA Hatcher et al., eds., Contraceptive Technology, 19th ed., pp. 117-143. New York: Ardent Media.)
“Copper or progesterone-releasing IUDs may attenuate or accentuate the inflammatory response, disturb the physiology of the gametes in the female genital tract, or destroy the viability of the embryos or endometrial receptivity to implantation.“
(Ortiz ME, et al. “Mechanisms Of Action Of Intrauterine Devices. – Pubmed -NCBI”. Ncbi.nlm.nih.gov. N.p., 2017. Web. 15 Apr. 2017.)
“Obtained by prescription only, the ring slowly releases synthetic estrogen and progestin hormones into the body. The walls of the vagina absorb the hormones and distribute them into the bloodstream. These hormones work by stopping ovulation, thickening cervical mucus as a barrier to sperm, and preventing implantation of the embryo if fertilization occurs.“
(“Vaginal Contraceptive Ring“. Contracept.org. N.p., 2017. Web. 15 Apr. 2017.)
“The birth control patch prevents pregnancy in one of three ways: First, it prevents eggs from being released from the ovaries. Second, it thickens the cervical mucus preventing the sperm from reaching the egg. Third, it changes the lining of the uterus preventing implantation.”
(“Birth Control Patch: Side Effects, Effectiveness And Costs”. American Pregnancy Association. N.p., 2017. Web. 15 Apr. 2017.)
Implanon and Nexplanon
“The implant steadily releases the hormone progestogen into a woman’s bloodstream. Progestogen is similar to the natural hormone progesterone, which is released by a woman’s ovaries during her period. The continuous release of progestogen stops a woman releasing an egg every month (ovulation), it thickens the mucus from the cervix (neck of the womb), making it difficult for sperm to pass through to the womb and reach an unfertilized egg, and it makes the lining of the womb thinner so that it is unable to support a fertilized egg.“

The implication of murdering children through hormonal birth control.
Hormonal birth control is widely practiced and accepted by professing Christians and professing non-Christians alike. It is both largely ignored by the pro-life community and unashamedly unopposed by the “Christian Culture” in any widespread sense. It is practiced by well-meaning women marching at pro-life rallies, it is practiced by girls getting dropped off by their parents at public schools, it is practiced by women in church pews listening to Sanctity of Life sermons on Sunday morning. It is condoned and supported and facilitated by husbands, boyfriends, and even fathers or, in this case, grandfathers. Hormonal birth control is a subtle, silent, and popular means of killing children that is responsible for more prenatal infanticide every single day than even surgical abortion. It reveals a stark pro-choice position in the hearts and minds and lifestyles of people who profess themselves to be pro-life and makes murderers out of those who claim to be Christians. Hormonal birth control is murder. If you are taking hormonal birth control, imagine how many of your children you have frustrated out of God-given life and existence. Consider whether you can live with yourself after either ignorantly or knowingly making your body and relationships mass graves for your innocent children who never had loving parents to give them names. Consider whether you live at peace with child sacrifice that is happening all around you and within you. Consider what repentance looks like for you, in the face of God and Conscience.
It was Jesus the Christ, God’s only begotten Son, King of Judea, the firstborn of Creation, and redeemer of repentant murderers, who confined himself to the body of a single-celled zygote, seeking to implant on the uterine wall of his mother, entering into the one place where most human beings only know abandonment, death, and destruction. The Gospel of Jesus Christ that brings adoption, life, and redemption began in the place that is most prevalent for blasphemous violence against humans made in God’s image. The Servant-King of mankind placed himself in a miraculous gambit of the apparent folly and danger of human reproduction in order to save murderous mothers and apathetic fathers, not to mention their pre-born sons and daughters, from each other and from themselves; setting the oppressed free; teaching the oppressor to walk in repentance, faith, and obedience; securing the future of the orphan and giving his parents new life.
If you are guilty of likely dehumanizing, aborting, and murdering unknown children through hormonal birth control, only the God-Man Jesus Christ, can give you the forgiveness you need, and only if you cease the practice of pre-natal infanticide and seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness.
If you are guilty of allowing, ignoring, or being apathetic towards the mass-murder of unknown children through hormonal birth control, or any other method, only the God-Man Jesus Christ, can give you the forgiveness you need, and only if you learn to love your preborn neighbor as yourself and seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness.
We do understand that there are medical reasons that women might believe that they have for taking hormonal birth control. That topic is addressed here.
