Protestors to Target the Dangers of 'The Pill'

Ad Feedback

This year, as the birth control pill turns 50, debate still abounds as to whether or not the drug is beneficial.

While there's little doubt the pill has changed American culture, some have suggested that change may not be for the better.

"I wonder whether birth control is just one step in a staircase of choices that leaves us with the illusion that humans are products to be consumed or discarded rather than gifts given, created, by God," Amy Julia Becker wrote in a recent Christianity Today blog.

Although the most widely used method of contraception, some critics believe the pill is dangerous both to women's bodies and the environment. A demonstration is expected to take place Saturday in Washington, D.C., protesting the controversial drug.

Marie Hahnenberg, project director of The American Life League's The Pill Kills project, appeared on the Friday, June 4 broadcast of the CBN News Midday newscast to discuss the dangers the pill presents. Watch that program here  for her comments.

Also, Rita Diller - the national director of the Stop Planned Parenthood Project - appeared on the Midday show to explain why she believes "the pill kills." Click here for her comments.
