"The hormones on the Plan B pill prevent pregnancy only by blocking ovulation. If a woman is already pregnant, Plan B does not work."
"There is an abortifacient
being used regularly across America, but it's not Plan B. RU-486 is a
drug that's used to end pregnancies of less than eight weeks."
also worry that instead of being a "Plan B" for emergencies, the
morning-after pill will become the only plan some young people have for
contraception, leading them to shun condoms and become more vulnerable
to sexually transmitted diseases. In response, women's health advocates
argue that research shows that at least 30 percent of 15- and
16-year-olds are already having sex, and will continue to do so whether
or not they have access to Plan B."
My Comment: If
social conservatives would do a decent job researching STDs, they'd
realize that fear of pregnancy is nothing compared to the multitude of
STDs that cause a multitude if health ailments. There a couple of dozen
common types; but there are many many more that cause or trigger many
variants of disease. This is a new field of study.
you have sex with someone, you are having sex with everyone they have
had sex with for the last ten years, and everyone they and their
partners have had sex with for the last ten years.... people can get
tested for STDs, be told that they are clean, and then transmit dormant
STDs the tests did not detect. Most tests today pick up the majority of
the infections they are testing for. The problem is that many people
believe they have been tested for all STDs when, in reality, they have
been tested for only a few.
Recently a high school girl was
considering sleeping with her boyfriend. She was a
virgin, but he had been with eleven girls. If his previous partners
were as sexually active as he had been (and depending on the types of
STDs), she could be exposing herself to the possible infections of more
than two thousand people if she slept with him once."
