Texas Republican Senator, Ted Cruz claimed that Obamacare is forcing Christian companies to provide healthcare coverage for abortion medication.
Cruz, along with many other Republican-minded peoples, has confused the pill Plan B – which prevents pregnancy from happening in the first place – with RU-486, an abortion inducing medication.
To set the record straight, Plan B prevents pregnancy from happening in the first place by either stopping the ovaries from releasing an egg or by preventing fertilization. Plan B does not effect an already existing pregnancy, therefore it does not cause an abortion.
RU-486 is abortion medication given to women sometimes before an abortion procedure, depending on how far along they are in the pregnancy.
Hey GOP, do your research before you start a fight next time.
