The morning-after pill is a drug that can cause an early abortion by changing the lining of the uterus so that the newly fertilized human life is unable to attach to the lining of the uterus, and thus, dies.
Emergency contraception can harm you as well as your child. Reported side effects include:
- Ectopic pregnancy (potentially fatal)
- Formation of blood clots
- Irregular bleeding
