The Difference Between Emergency Contraception and Medication Abortion

The line between contraception and abortion is often blurred, intentionally and unintentionally, in the course of policy discussions about emergency contraception (also known as the “morning-after” pill) and the early-abortion option, mifepristone (also known as RU 486). The distinction between the two is important, especially since anti-choice lawmakers are trying to restrict women’s access to these and other reproductive-health services.

Everyone should be able to decide if, when, how, and with whom they start or grow a family.
