American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology  Changes The Definition Of When Life Begins   By J. C. Willke MD

      Contraception, abortifacient--what's the difference?  Well, on the face of it, it's rather simple.  A contraceptive, properly so-called, prevents human life from beginning.  The
      laws of our land permit contraceptive use in all 50 states.  Certain types are sold only on prescription, others without prescriptions over the counter.  Substantial portions of our
      federal tax monies in the last two decades have been spent for the promotion of contraceptive education and contraceptive use--particularly among teenage and poverty

      An abortifacient can also be simply defined.  It is a drug or device which causes an abortion within the first one or two weeks of a human's life.  An abortifacient acts after
      human life has begun and produces a micro-abortion.  The Roe vs. Wade and more recent Casey Supreme Court decisions, which legalized abortion in all of our states, for
      social reasons, for the full nine months of pregnancy, obviously also legalized it in the very first weeks.  Abortifacients, which had been outlawed in every state since the Civil
      War, are now legal in every state.  So far, so simple. But now we get into a cloudy area.  The intrauterine device is advertised in our medical journals as a "contraceptive."
     The morning-after pill, or shot, is advertised as a
"contraceptive."  The contraceptive pill, which also at times produces micro-abortions, is also advertised as a "contraceptive."
     So is the new Norplant.  To say the least, this blurs
the distinction between contraceptives and abortifacients, and confuses people.

      In the early 1960's, officials from the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology teamed up with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and they simply redefined the
      word "conception."  They said it would no longer be the time of union of sperm and ovum, but rather would be the time, one week later, when this new human plants inside
      the lining of the mother's womb.  "Fertilization" would still be the word used for the time of union of sperm and ovum.  The interesting thing was though that no one knew of this
      change except an inner circle of medical and drug people.  And so what has happened? Well, just what they planned.

      Today a physician can truthfully call the IUD a "contraceptive," and mean that it prevents implantation in the wall of the uterus, while his patient, hearing him use the word,
      "contraception," will understand it to mean "the prevention of the union of sperm and ovum."  And so, presto!  An abortifacient is called a "contraceptive," and everybody is
      fooled.  A classic example of double speak, or the perversion of language.

      That slight of hand definition change happened 30 years ago.  Today only a few  physicians know that many so-called contraceptives really act as abortifacients.

The word sorcery, originates from the Greek word pharmakia, which in turn gives us our modern word, pharmaceuticals.  The New Testament is very clear about where all un-repentant sorcerers will end up.

Galatians 5:20-21 tells us that those who practice "idolatery, sorcery, hatred...envy, murders...will not inherit the kingdom of God"(NKJ).

Revelation 21:7-8 says,"murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone"(NKJ).

Revelation 22:15 tells us, "Outside are the sorcerers and the sexually immoral, and murderers and idolaters and whoever loves and practices a lie"(NKJ).

In the book of Acts 19:18 we are told that the people repented and burned their sorcery books, in order that they may receieve Jesus Christ as their Saviour and Lord.
