Is Plan B the abortion pill?

Is Plan B the abortion pill?

Depends: Plan b prevents implantation of a fertilized egg so that it passes without development, as do 80% of all fertilized eggs naturally. So it is not really an abortion. Note that evangelicals consider life to begin at conception - so who is the responsible party for those 80% spontaneously passed. Mormons believe that life begins at implantations so they support stem cell research. ...Read more

Question:

Had Protected sex May 3
plan b May 5
ovulation date May 7th

The simple act of taking Plan B is an enormously loud voice saying: USE RELIABLE CONTRACEPTION RIGHT NOW AND EVERY DAY. Hopefully, that is easy to do in most cases, and can eliminate the desire or need to know exactly when ovulation will happen next. ...Read more
