Hat tip to NLQ reader, Tim Williamson of The Blue Frog, for bringing this news item to my attention, saying: Saw this on OneNewsNow, the “news” arm of the AFA (Acting Fundamentally Absurd.)
The article details “family advocates,” Geoffrey Botkin’s and Doug Phillips’ Quiverfull ideal “that birth-control pills are just as damaging as abortion.”
“As the fertilized egg tries to implant, it’s not able to do so. And so then, an abortion occurs,” he explains. “The people who [were] behind the creation of the pill back in the 1950s, they knew this, but it was not their concern to preserve the life of a child.”
Phillips warns that without a cultural return to God and God’s teaching, the issue will continue. “Unless we go back to the Bible right now, we will never be able to handle the complex issues that are coming around over the next ten years,” he states.
