Given the current political encroachments on women's reproductive rights, it is important for all women to have access to options beyond government control. The Internet is a useful tool. Google "emergency contraception" for lots of good information. Almost any birth control pill can be taken as emergency contraception within three days of unprotected intercourse to prevent a pregnancy. You will need to take between two and five of the regular "pills" to achieve this goal. Nobody wants to abort a potential life; that's not the issue. The issue is freedom of choice. An unwanted child is a burden on society, on the mother and especially awful for the child.
