    Plan B One-Step® is one pill that has a higher dose of levonorgestrel, a hormone found in many birth control pills that healthcare professionals have been prescribing for several decades. Plan B One-Step® works in a similar way to help prevent pregnancy from happening. It works mainly by stopping the release of an egg from the ovary. It is possible that Plan B One-Step® may also work by preventing fertilization of an egg (the uniting of the sperm with the egg) or by preventing attachment (implantation) to the uterus (womb).
    Hence, the 1 in a 1,000,000 argument.

    Having had my tubes tied, it doesn't matter to me personally, but I imagine those looking to use such a drug wish it prevented implantation as it would cover more cases.

    Even Democrats can be asses. Look at Rahm Emanuel.
