Is EC like medication abortion?

The short answer is NO.

A:

The short answer is NO.

Emergency contraception commonly referred to as the morning-after pill, Plan B (which is a brand), or EC, is not the “abortion pill.”  It postpones ovulation before pregnancy can occur, emergency contraception serves as a safe and effective birth control option when things don’t work out as planned. When you fear that you could become pregnant because your contraception failed or because you had unprotected sex, you need fast, timely access to this backup birth control option.
