The Pill

So... As many women seem to think that abortion is wrong and a form of killing your unborn child (to my understanding) But i'm curious as to what women think of the morning after pill. Do you agree with taking the morning after pill or do you disagree that it is a form of harming your unborn child?

I think that all comes down to individual beliefs regarding when life starts. My personal belief is that life starts the moment the sperm fertilizes the egg. So it is my opinion that the morning after pill is more a form of abortion than it is a form of birth control. Of course this is just my opinion so it isn't necessarily right but it's not necessarily wrong.

I never viewed plan b as a sort of abortion, until now. You take birth control as a contreseptive to birth , on a daily basis to protect yourself from the chance of conceiving. But taking the morning after pill is a way of killing the sperm that could have already furtilized an egg.That being said, Men and Women are usually, for the most part angry with abortion. But what exactly is the difference between killing a fertilzed egg or aborting organs. Really, why, isnt there a bigger stink about plan b , like there is with abortion?

It has a lot to do with how they promote it. Plan B was promoted as an "Emergency Contraceptive" that could be used to prevent pregnancy if taken 48 ot 72 hours after s_x.

My knowledge about the Morning after pill is that if the egg is already fertilized it doesnt kill it. It kills the sperm before they get to fertilize the egg if it already hasnt. My friend had s_x and took the morning after pill and she still got pregnant. So if it was a form of abortion, it would of aborted the fertilized egg.

It only happens that way if there is actually a egg thats been fertilised there.. The MAP usually prevents ovulation, or it sheds the womb lining to not allow implantation. With there only been 3 days in which you can take it I can hardly been seen as aborting... and now its been brought to light there will probably be people now scared to take it because they think it means they're having an abortion (so more teenage pregnancies woohoo)

BabyGirl15 don't listen to me or anyone else. The best way to formulate an opinion isn't from asking people that you don't know for theirs. What you need to do is go the website gotoplanb dot com or a similar website that deals with the morning after pill. Educate yourself about it and talk to people that you know and respect. Or try talking with your healthcare provider. The decision to take a morning after pill isn't one that people you don't even know should help you make.

I used to be against plan b. In fact I work in a pharmacy, and I wont fill it. I still wont really. But, I've seen the other side of things. Yes, some people will use it as a form of birth control (WHICH in my opinion is disgusting) or will take it far after the time limit and harm there baby, but not abort the baby. BUT there is another side - people who take every precaution - using comdoms, and if it breaks, they want to be on the safe side. Or, people who have been raped. Ofcourse then, I would think its ok. But as far as a form of birth control, THAT is GROSS.

I was going to get on BC, but I really wouldn't want to go that route because I am one who thinks that is bad, not because its a form of abortion, but I'm a girl who think all medication is bad. I will take my prenatels because it is to help the baby and myself moreso. But anything else such as tylenol I don't care for. I was going to get on BC because I got pregnant using a condom and miscarried twins at almost 10 weeks, and i didn't want to chance it, but come to find out that I got pregnant again. I'm not big on it, but because I got pregnant easily it seems like the only thing I can do after I have this baby. Otherwise I will just have a ton of kids. But really I do think that it just messes with your system and doesn't help you out to much and only makes you insane (in my opinion) some view it as abortion...I view it as a way to get rid of the egg, but who knows what people will say. but i just don't like the after effects I hear about.

I just went and looked at the website that mrn posted go2planb.com and it does say if you are already pregnant, then the pill will not work. So, it wouldnt really be an abortion then, would it? I thought it killed the fertilized egg possibly before implantation or something. Hmm... the website is interesting, you should go take a look at it.

Oh MRN* i fortunately have not been put in a situation where ive had to choose either or. I have a 9 month beautiful dd, and i honestly couldnt have aborted her, the thought never crossed my mind. But i just wanted to start a discussion on the views young or older women think about plan b and abortion being alike.

Sorry!

I don't think that it is a form of abortion at all, it simply prevents/stops the implantation process, meaning your 'child' hasn't even attached or started growing at all yet.

 

c_baer19 - March 8

Wow moescrilla, I had heard of people like that but I never really thought it was a real issue. I can't believe you would deny a woman something she can legally have because your opinions are against it, it's not your choice, it is theirs. Who are you to judge them, and how would you know if they were raped, or the condom broke, or if they were just using it as a form of birth control? I didn't mean to sound rude, I'm sure I did sound rude, but I just couldn't believe you actually refuse to fill the precription for them.

Well, if you would have kept reading, instead of making a__sumptions, you would have learned that I didnt know at the time that I wrote that it wasnt considered abortion. I thought you were already pregnant and the pill aborted it. I stated however, after reading the website mrn listed, It wont even work if you are already pregnant. It works before implantation. And - if it did abort the baby, I wouldnt fill it. I dont believe in killing babies because of (most of the time) carelessness. So before you get at_tude next time, read everything first, ok? Oh, and in that first post, I said I UNDERSTAND if someone were to use it if a condom broke, or if they were raped, but not as a form of birth control. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

and - if you've never thought that people out there were against abortion....you've lead a very sheltered life. I'm totally against abortion, unless there is some medical reason why it has to be done. HOWEVER, since I went on to read plan b isnt really abortion, my views on it are different now.

Again this is all based on one's personal belief of when life begins. It is my personal and I stress the word personal belief that life begins at the moment of conception which as we all know is the moment the sperm fertilizes the egg. Here is some of the data that supports how I feel. During the first 12 hours after conception, the fertilized egg cell remains a single cell. After approximately 30 hours, it divides from 1 cell into 2 and 15 hours later, the 2 cells divide into 4. And at the end of 3 days, the fertilized egg cell has become a berry-like structure made up of 16 cells. This structure is called a morula, which is Latin for mulberry. The cells continue to divide 8 or 9 days following conception into a blastocyst. Although it is only the size of a pinhead, the blastocyst is composed of hundreds of cells. The blastocyst is slowly carried by tiny hair-like projections in the fallopian tube called cilia toward the uterus. During the critically important process of implantation, it must attach itself to the uterine lining where it will be able to get nourishment from the mother’s blood supply. If the blastocyst is unable to attach, the pregnancy will fail to survive. The website said that Plan B may keep the egg from implanting in the uterus. It doesn't mean that they never became pregnant. They just took measures to prevent a fertilized egg that is in the earliest stages of development from implanting into the uterus. In my opinion the fertilized egg that wasn't allowed to implant is no less of a life than the one that is allowed to implant. Again this all comes down to when you believe that life begins. Some people don't believe that life begins until a baby takes it's first breath. That is how many justify late term abortions.
