In brief: For emergencies

"morning-after" pills are emergency contraceptives, which means they are the back-up plan when the main plan goes wrong.
So, one should always have a main plan that works, whether that is birth control pills, condoms, abstinence, etc... Emergencies happen to people only once in a while, so emergency contraceptives are not designed for frequent use.
