What is the difference between the morning after pill and plan B and what are the dangers?

–1 vote
I am past the point of needing this but if I were a young woman, I would be interested in knowing this? Having studied biology, I know there is a point before the egg and sperm get together and start forming a baby. I am of the opinion that this medication just makes the environment for conception to be not condusive to that effect. I think that this though frowned upon by some is much a lessor problem than having an abortion, which I don't like the thought of. I also wonder what the side affects for these pills are on the woman. Are there any dangers? These pills are nothing like the abortion pills they have in other countries, right?

Plan B is a type of emergency contraception. This is birth control that may prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex. People sometimes call it the "morning after pill." But you don't have to wait until the morning after sex to take it. In fact, Plan B is more effective the sooner you take it.  However, if you're already pregnant when you take Plan B One-Step or Next Choice, the treatment will simply be ineffective and won't harm the developing baby.  For more information you can refer this link.
