I never thought I could love an informational video about Plan B, but, well, it’s happened. This new video, created by AsapSCIENCE, explains exactly what Plan B is, what it does and why it does not cause abortions. While most science videos are boring and hard to watch, this video is super fun, colorful and somehow makes a uterus look cute. In other words? You’ll enjoy watching it and you’ll learn stuff. Bam. Awesome.
I know it’s easy to look at Plan B and think, “this will stop me from having a baby” and not care about what else it does, but you shouldn’t do that. You may not think that understanding the inner workings of Plan B is important, but it is, because don’t you want to know exactly what that little pill is doing to your body? Being informed about these things will make you even smarter than you already are.
This video is also really important because it states loud and clear that Plan B is not the same thing as abortion. There are a lot of conservative groups out there who feel like emergency contraception and abortions are the same thing, and those conservative groups are the ones that are going to try to bring Plan B down. Honestly, believing something like that is about a total lack of information (or ignorance, depending on who you are), because as you can see (once you watch the video), they are not the same thing at all. Plan B stops fertilization before it happens, because a baby is not created the second sperm enters your vagina. Abortion terminates a pregnancy once the egg is fertilized. See the difference?
Anyway, if you’ve ever had questions about Plan B or if you’ve ever worried about the safety of this little pill, just watch this video. I’m pretty sure it will answer anything you need to know in the most simple terms possible. Check it out:
