The writer argues that the morning-after pill is one more strategy for controlling reproduction. The paper examines how the pill offers women a second chance to avoid an unwanted pregnancy, a "Plan B" to go to if the first plan fails. The paper further examines how emergency contraception is safe and reliable and effective for nearly 90% of women. The writer concludes that taking a morning-after pill is far from irresponsible; it makes good sense.
