Plan B the day after pill.....

Is this, in your own opinion, akin to abortion or is it a safe way to practice birth control?

  • It's not supposed to be used as birth control. It is to prevent implantation so I dont see it as abortion.

  • It isn't safe, it is a last chance effort for a "mistake" to be "righted" but personally I would always want to know if I was pregnant..

  • The plan B pill stops a fertalized egg from being able to implant into the uterus. To me it's a baby as soon as fertilization takes place so no...it's just an early form of abortion to me. That is just my oppinion though.

  • The plan b will not terminate a pregnancy if you are already in fact pregnant.

  • It prevents a fertilized egg from implanting... thus, it is an unborn baby... abortion

  • Neither. It has an insane amount of hormones in it.

  • It is meant for if you had sex without any form of bitrh control. Not as birth control. And of course I think it is safe to use.

  • It is not meant as birth control nor is it the same as an abortion. It will not terminate an existing pregnancy.

  • I don't see it as abortion but I would never use it (maybe if I was raped) , that amount of hormones scares me.
