This is not a subjective opinion, but an objective scientific fact. Accordingly, any artificial action that works to destroy a fertilized egg (human embryo) is abortifacient in nature. Emergency contraception has been around for many years. They prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex, contraceptive failure, or sexual assault. It wont work if your already pregnant and it wont affect an existing pregnancy. To me, Emergency Contraceptive is the safe option for anyone to take. The decision to be able to purchase the pill over the counter was a smart choice. This desicion will reduce the number of unintended pregnancies and abortions. I believe that making the decision to take emergency contraceptive pills is very smart because it isn’t killing a baby like an abortion is. Nobody is perfect and everyone makes mistakes. Im sure a lot of people have made mistakes of having unprotected sex at least one time in their life. Having the opportunity and making the availability to take emergency contraceptivepills is very important because not everyone is ready to have a baby in their life. This simply provides an option to stop it before it happens.
I am personally against abortion but I believe that everyone has the right to make the choice of whether or not they want to have an abortion. I don’t think that anyone should have the power to take that choice from them. Although, Iwould rather see someone take emergency contraceptive pills than to end up waiting too long and having to have an abortion. Which can effect the health of a woman and killing a baby. Im not trying to ramble on about abortions , I’m just trying to show you the alternate choice that can be taken if done in time. Bringing a baby into this world with the intention not to take care of them is wrong and selfish. This is something teens feel pressured about today. Sometimes it may be a parents choice, to want their child to keep the baby. When the child really doesn’t want too. Emergency contraceptive pills can stop this hard discision.
Although I am for emergency contraceptive pills, it does have minor side effects that you should know about before taking it. But, this shouldn’t stop you from taking them because almost every medication has some side affects and these are very minor.
Now that you know about emergency contracepttive pills, how do you feel about it? Well I hope a lot of your questions have been answered and you feel more comfortable with the concept of it. Having projected sex and staying ten steps ahead of the game allows partners to act quickly, while providing a high-level of safety and efficacy. I hope that emergency contraceptives pills can show a positive affect on unintended pregnancies and make everyone feel like it was worth while.
