Vatican aide calls morning after pill 'abortive'

The "morning after" pill, which has recently become widely available in many countries, is an abortive medication, a Vatican official told Spain's National Congress of Hospitals.

Archbishop Javier Lozano Barragán, president of the Pontifical Council for Health Pastoral Care, said that scientific studies prove the abortive nature of the pill.

"Anything else that attacks life is not licitly acceptable," he said.
