image Abortion or Contraception

I’ve heard of people taking the Plan B pill and I’m not quite sure how I feel about it personally. While I have no judgement on what any other person chooses for their body it made me think of myself. (My baby making days are DONE. I made sure of that!) But when I think about this pill I’m conflicted with is it considered abortion or just another form of contraception.  What’s your take on it?plan-b



  1. Welcome back! It’s good to hear from you again. 🙂

    This is a topic that I’ve had discussed with my friends a while back regarding what Plan B actually does. Plan B alters the hormone levels in women so that it would suppress ovulation.

    If you follow this menstrual cycle chart (, you can see that ovulation occurs the moment estrogen levels drop. So Plan B maintains the high levels of estrogen so that ovulation won’t occur. No egg -> no fertilization -> no baby.

    A former girlfriend told me she had taken Plan B and she felt horrible because thought she had aborted her baby. It was only until I explained what happened did she feel relieved from thinking she was some baby killer.

    The basis of this argument consists of two elements. At what moment would you define a baby to be a baby? (i.e. conception? fertilization?) AND… What is your definition of an abortion? (i.e. are you aborting the pregnancy? or are you aborting the baby?)

    Very thoughtful though … love it!
