The concern about the ella abortion drug the FDA recently approved is so great that a collection of pro-life groups has put together an informative webcast. The event is planned for Tuesday evening to explain how the so-called expanded morning after pill causes abortions.

The new drug ella has been sold to the public as an expanded and improved version of the Plan B drug and one that can be used to prevent pregnancy days after sexual intercourse.

But, at that point, conception has already occurred and the drug will destroy the life of a unique human being — a conception the organizers of the webcast will explain in scientific detail.

The webcast, entitled “What They Won’t Tell You About ella and Abortion,” will feature Wendy Wright from Concerned Women for America, Jeanne Monahan from the Family Research Council, and Dr. Angela Lanfranchi from the Breast Cancer Prevention Institute. LifeNews.com is a co-sponsor of the pro-life educational forum.

Kristan Hawkins, the director of Students for Life of America and the main organizer of the panel, talked with LifeNews.com about the upcoming event.

“As many people know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. During this month, numerous organizations and companies have been promoting women’s health issues. In that spirit, Students for Life of America decided to organize an educational webcast to inform women about two topics they will rarely hear about,” she said.

That includes “the dangers of the ella abortion pill and the link between abortion and breast cancer.”

“Our webcast was specifically designed to unveil the dangerous effects of ella and abortion on women, which have been suppressed by the pro-abortion industry in an effort to increase their profits. On Tuesday’s webcast, we will ask participants to take action to inform women of the dangerous side effects of ella, as well as educate women about the link between abortion and breast cancer,” Hawkins explained.

Hawkins says the public needs to understand that what the media and abortion industry fail to tell women is that abortion is one of the best predictors of breast cancer and can increase a woman’s risk of developing breast cancer by 30%. [related]

She also wants participants to know the FDA approved ella and labeled it as a contraceptive instead of what it really is, an abortion drug like RU 486.

“Make sure to join us for this important webcast where we will explain these dangerous facts and give you the tools you need to take action in your community and on your campus,” she said.
