How to make your own morning after pill, courtesy of Elizabeth Hasselbeck

Elizabeth Hasselbeck on “The View” is so out of touch with reality that she says using the morning after pill is the same as “birthing a baby and leaving it out on the street.”

That is the shittiest slippery slope reasoning I have ever heard. Elizabeth had to be schooled by Barbara who said they should discuss the topic rationally. Watch this crap:

Let me just tell you that you can make your own morning after pill with common birth control pills. I read about first it in a health magazine, and had to use it once in college after an accident. The morning after pill is just a high dose of the hormones in regular birth control pills, so this is generally safe, but it’s not comfortable and you should only do it if you have no other options. (You should also consult your doctor.)

You ovulate about 14 days give or take 3-4 days from the first day your period started. (If you have a regular 28 day cycle) So if you have an accident on the 20th day after the first day of your period you’re probably ok, but only use this guideline to take measures in case of an accident and not to have unprotected sex, that’s stupid.

If you want to go this route, just follow the instructions on the chart at the Planned Parenthood website.

Borrow a friend’s pills or take some you have on hand.

If you you’re using Triphasil or Tri-Levlen, for instance, take 4 yellow pills up to 72 hours after the accident. Wait 12 hours and take 4 more. Just follow the guidelines on the chart for the particular birth control you have.

Don’t ever be afraid to take measures, especially early on, to take care of your body.

    I am afraid to even watch. The thought that someone actually thinks its the same as leaving a baby on the street has some major issues and is grossely ignorant.

    It is uncomfortable to watch, you’re not missing anything.

    You know the irony is… if its available over the counter… it will be more likely that it will prevent and egg from being fertilized where as if you have to get to your gyno, get the prescription… then get to the pharmasist… you may have already have fertilization. If its over the counter… less life will be “illiminated” Hours matter in this situation… A baby’s brain and heart don’t function untill weeks into the pregnancy. GOD i wish I could get my hands on that woman. Of COURSE life has value…that is not the issue!!!! no one who is pro choice thinks that life doesn’t have value… She is not the only one who believes life starts at conception.. but it isn’t always about that. its about hard decisions that we have to make about our lives and our bodies.

    NO ONE is for getting rid of human life. … but Im liking the thought of Miss Elizabeth biting the dust more and more…

    As you can probably guess I broke down and watched it.

    At least Barbara put her in her place! What an annoying b*tch. According to her logic, life begins at intercourse. Even more annoying was the applause she got for her insane rant.

    I’m with Millie on this one. And I really appreciate the tips here–I’m bookmarking this page and sending it to all my girlfriends in case one of us ever needs the instructions here.

    Thanks Jude! I think it’s one of the main things that people forget when debating the “morning after” pill. It’s kind of a secret that regular birth control pills can do the same thing and the word needs to get out.

    AC you make a really good point that by making it harder to obtain the morning after pill you’re making it more likely that “life” will be stopped rather than just the implantation of the egg.

    Millie – you’re right that her logic is so flawed. Every time you’re ovulating you should try to get pregnant or a potential life is lost!
