Emergency contraception is not a form of abortion as it is designed to be used during small period of time after intercourse to prevent pregnancy by stopping the implantation of an egg into the womb. Abortion on the other hand involves termination of the foetus up to 24 weeks of pregnancy by law.

It is also important to note that the ‘morning after pill’ and ‘abortion pills’ are completely different medications and thus work differently.
