Why won’t you answer my questions about your opinion of emergency contraception? Is it because you know you’re a hypocrite?
Most oral contraceptives rely on hormonal properties to prevent ovulation or to thicken the cervical mucus. Emergency contraceptives, such as Plan-B, rely on a similar mechanism. There is no conclusive evidence that these types of emergency contraceptives work by preventing the implantation of an embryo into the endometrium, or uterine lining. For this reason, I have no issue supporting the use of Plan-B.
Mifepristone (RU-486) is designed to be an abortifacient and is not an emergency contraceptive. It causes the already implanted blastocyst to be dislodged, terminating a pregnancy. For this reason, I do not support the use of RU-486.
