Washington, D.C., June 5, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Members and supporters of nearly 60 pro-life groups will be taking to social media for three days beginning June 5 to inform women about the deadly dangers of the pill and similar hormonal contraceptives.

The campaign, which asks pro-life users of Twitter and Facebook to post facts and statistics about the risks of chemical birth control alongside the hashtag #ThePillKills, was organized by American Life League (ALL).

“The mountain of evidence that these drugs are killers cannot just be swept under the rug,” said Judie Brown, president of ALL. “We need to get out there and warn women of the dangers they face. Planned Parenthood and other pill peddlers are deceiving women and causing their deaths.”

For the next three days, says the group, organizers are planning to storm social media on Twitter and Facebook to bring light to the dangers of not just the contraceptive pill, but all other contraceptives targeted at women that damage their reproductive health.

“Because of hormonal contraceptives, women are dying and suffering permanent, debilitating injuries from blood clots, heart attacks, and strokes,” said Rita Diller, national director of ALL’s Stop Planned Parenthood project.

On Saturday, June 7, ALL has planned protests and vigils outside abortion clinics and pharmacies nationwide where contraceptives are sold. Activists will distribute literature provided by ALL to the public, outlining all of the dangers and risks posed by contraception and contraceptive devices.

Predictably, supporters of contraception are up in arms about the effort.  ALL’s reps say pro-abortion and pro-contraception activists have already shown up on the group’s Facebook page and on Twitter to criticize the campaign. The group also says there were efforts Tuesday to sabotage a national organizing conference call for their event, which they blamed on “pro-abortion and pro-contraception extremists.”

“Planned Parenthood does not want our message heard,” said Rey Flores, ALL’s director of outreach. “We will not be silenced, not when lives are at stake.”
