The medical expert on FoxNews was discussing the new emergency contraceptive, Ella One.  He said

“Ella One has been found to be effective as a contraceptive five days after the fact.  For as long as five days after the fact, if you decide you may have become pregnant or want to avoid it, you can take the Ella One.” (he rushed on-) “But what I want to tell you about today…”

He went on to say that Ella One also shrinks fibroids.

Yeah, and Yaz clears up my acne.  He went on to talk so nonchalantly about Ella and taking “the more the merrier” to shrink your fibroids and avoid bleeding, hysterectomies, etc.

You can find out more here: including information about the dangers of Ella One for women (born and unborn).

Yes, but rewind.  How can a pill act as a contraceptive five days after “the fact?”  What if the sperm and the egg combine on day one, and you take the pill on day two, three, or four?

So much for contra-ception.  Looks like conception already took place.

Like my sister said when I asked, “How can you say it can be effective as a contraceptive five days after ‘the fact’??”

“Because words mean whatever we want them to mean.”

Welcome to our scary world.
