Press Release in response to the judicial protest to call for the legalisation of the morning-after pill in Malta.
Human embryonic life starts from conception. The egg released from the woman is fertilised by the sperm and the embryo created continues to grow as the new human life travels down to implant in the mother’s womb.
One of the effects of the morning after pill or emergency contraception is the alteration of the lining of the womb such that the embryo will not be able to implant and is thus intentionally lost. This is called the anti nidation (anti nesting) effect and is abortifacient.
The sale or use of abortifacients is prohibited by law.
In Malta, human life has always been protected from conception by successive governments.
Let us continue to keep the unborn protected from conception.
