New book on the morning-after pill

The Christian Institute is delighted to announce the publication of its latest book – The Morning-after pill: Uncovering the Truth, written by experienced Christian medical ethicist John Ling.

John Ling surveys medicine and biology uncovering how the morning-after pill (MAP) works. He analyses statistics, the law and political debate to reveal the MAP’s influence on society. Part two of the book sets out the Bible’s teaching on the sanctity of life from conception and demolishes alternative philosophical arguments.

This book comes at a crucial time. The MAP is being promoted as never before. It is a key part of the Government’s strategy to reduce teenage pregnancy and the British Pregnancy Advisory Service is even urging women to keep the MAP alongside plasters and paracetamol in the bathroom.

But as John Ling shows the MAP has deeply harmful affects. It clearly acts to destroy human embryos and promotes promiscuity. Studies show it is linked with increasing levels of sexually transmitted infections.

This is a comprehensive, but plain-speaking book. We pray that it will awaken many people and stir them to action.
