Letter to the Editor for 8/31/06

The opinion column on Aug. 29, 2006 by Lauren Walter about the so-called “incomplete” information given about Plan B also neglected to mention some very pertinent information.

First, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, a pregnancy begins with the implantation of a fertilized egg.

According to the definitions that doctors use, neither Plan B or the pill cause the termination of a pregnancy.

Of course, Lauren’s definition of pregnancy wasn’t implantation.

Her definition was based on the idea of fertilization, which is a completely different topic altogether.

Everyone is allowed to have his or her own definition of when life begins.

Lauren is allowed to believe life begins at fertilization. Nobody will force her to have an abortion.

And nobody will force her to use Plan B.

Lauren also inadvertently negated her own point by saying that the information about the possibility of prevention of implantation could be found on Plan B’s very own website.

The information is public, and if a woman believes that life begins at fertilization and doesn’t want to take a chance, she is well within her right to choose not to have an abortion, not to use Plan B or not to use birth control. Choice should be left to the woman. If you don’t want Plan B, don’t take it.
