Thanks to Paul Thiede for bringing to the public's attention the grant application of the WeARE organization.

Part of that grant application referred to "emergency contraception", i.e. the "morning after pill." The "before it starts" is incorrect. Only if this pill were to be taken several days before the moment of ovulation could it sometimes act to prevent ovulation, and thus act as a typical contraceptive. The woman who uses this kind of pill within 72 hours after intercourse does so in the fear that she may be in her fertile period and therefore intends to prevent the fertilized ovum from being implanted and thus being expulsed. This is a form of chemical abortion.

Government money should not be used to support or promote abortion. You can comment on this grant application to the Minnesota Department of Health.
