'Plan B' has been approved in Canada as an Over the Counter medication. Which means that it is as now as easy to buy this as it is say, vitamins, or condoms. It will be interesting to watch as public outcry ensues. Canadians, will undoubtedly cite "choice" and "life" as rallying cries.

"ECP is not an abortion pill. It blocks the possibility for pregnancy by preventing ovulation, by interfering with the joining of egg and sperm, or by altering the lining of the uterus to prevent an egg from implanting."

Scenarios 1&2 are clearly prophylactic. Preventing a fertilized ovum from implanting, is not so cut and dry. It is prophylactic of pregnancy. It is not prophylactic of conception.

Can't wait to hear all the shouting.
