Ferenczy, Tara, "Contraceptive Methods in the United States: the Question of Abortive Mechanisms" (2020). Senior Honors Theses. 1029.
This thesis reviews the many methods of contraception available in the United States. Although society’s understanding of women’s health has become a major topic, there is still a significant deficit of information regarding how the accessible methods affect women’s bodies, specifically reproductive tissue. The thesis analyzes numerous contraceptive options focusing specifically on the mechanisms of action to determine whether options have abortifacient properties so that readers may develop educated opinions regarding medical and ethical uses. Information involving strengths and limitations of each technique and the effects on both the female body and the reproductive material assist in understanding the process by which proposed outcomes are reached and the specificity of whether they have accomplished only their intended goal.
