  •  "Morning After" Pills (none)
    Are regular birth control, just a higher dose.  Please, we really need to get this language right.

    "Morning after", "Plan B", "Emergency Contraception" all refer to a pill that contains an increased dose of regular contraceptives that will likely PREVENT pregnancy if taken within 48 -72 hours of sexual intercourse.

    Anyone with a prescription for "regular" birth control pills can replicate this dosage quite closely.  

    RU-486 is a whole different drug that induces an abortion.

    This is one of the main points of MSOC's diary - by conflating & confusing the 2 terms, access to  birth control pills would be put at risk by this law.
