I'm pretty sure that those pills aren't even legal in Poland.

I think it's prescription only, yes.

aren't even legal in Poland.

Recent law change? Wikipedia says this: Poland

Postinor-2 and Escapelle are available by medical prescription.[/quote]
Here it says the same, ie prescription only

You need Rx to get them and even to get regular birth control pills. Any medication that contains hormones is by Rx only in Poland.

My view is that you should be charged with pre- mediated homicide for using that.

Because life begins at conception.
Just because it is out of sight and out of mind doesn't mean that it's not killing.
New age thinking......."I don't want to be accountable or responsible."
Just hit the "DELETE" button and start over.

It's nice to hear the opinions of ppl who obviously have no idea how the pill works.
HINT: It weakens and postpones the ovulation and make the fluid in vagina thicker so the "swimmers" have tougher time. So it prevents the conception, it's not an abortion. But don't let the details stop you.

New age thinking......."I don't want to be accountable or responsible."

Of course I want a girl that been raped or had a date rape pill slipped to be able not to get pregnant. I even want a couple that used condoms that broke to be able to prevent getting pregnant. Especially in the first case I want the girl to face as little consequences of a rape as she can. She suffered enough and she doesn't need an STD or pregnancy to make it even tougher for her

So it prevents the conception, it's not an abortion.

I disagree.
The emergency contraceptive morning after pill has three modes of action that is it can work in one of three ways:
1.The normal menstrual cycle is altered, delaying ovulation; or
2.Ovulation is inhibited, meaning the egg will not be released from the ovary;
3.It can irritate the lining of the uterus so as to inhibit implantation.
Keep in mind that fertilization occurs in the fallopian tube and that fertilization marks the beginning of
a new human life and the beginning of the pregnancy.
The journey from the fallopian tube to the womb takes between five and seven days during which pregnancy
cannot be readily detected.
Therefore, if a woman ingests emergency contraception after fertilization has taken place the third mode of action can occur.
The lining of the uterus can be altered causing the woman's body to reject the living human embryo, making implantation impossible and the child will die.

This result is called a chemical abortion; therefore emergency contraception is an abortifacient.

Of course I want a girl that been raped or had a date rape pill slipped to be able not to get pregnant.

Under those circumstances a Dr. could 'prescribe' such a pill.
They make 'birth control' pills for recreation sex which don't abort and kill a human being.

Then you should be even more interested in easier access to such pill-if a girl manages to take it quicly, before ovulation there is no conception.

In the case of the girl-the problem we have in Poland is that doctors can refuse to do stuff because of their beliefs (I wonder if ppl would be so understanding in a case of Yehowa Witness surgeon who refused blood transfusion) and who wouldn't prescribe such drug even after rape. Finding new doctor and making an appointment takes time which is crucial. If a girl can escape being lectured by such person that she should surrender herself to the God's will then I'm all for it.

And for your information-not every women can take pills. And generally condoms are better for the health as they don't have an influence on the body. Generally we can speculate that a smart couple should use 2 methods and then there is no need for such drug but the thing is we are HUMAN and different things happen.

Anyway it seems from now on these drugs will be sold without prescription.

Life begins as a few cells. Cells die in our bodies all the time, so it looks like we are all murderers.

Well, I think , making it easily available can help in those times when there is a long break - lets say during Christmas or Easter.

And also in cases where the doctor consider their religious value more important than the patient.

A girl can get pregnant in various careless ways , like when couple are not using condom, or both are drunk , in these cases, its better to take the pill rather than making things complicated with an unwanted child.

Also an unwanted child may be neglected or not treated well.
The couple may not be even working , the guy may leave the girl alone. So, there are so many different scenarios where these situations may be avoided.

ike when couple are not using condom, or both are drunk

Umm dont one has to be responsible to not drink and drive? or when one drinks with his mom or sis does one try to have sex with them in drunken state?You drink you are responsible in my opinion.

Yes, that is why any responsible person takes precautions i.e. leaving the car at home or they leave keys with friends, arrange taxis upfront or have a designated driver in the group (worst job ever in my opinion).

or when one drinks with his mom or sis does one try to have sex with them in drunken state?

Jeso........

Right now, it seems like you don't need a prescription for the morning after pill in Poland. But the government is pretty conservative and wants to change this. For updated status on the morning after pill in Poland, you can check out the Gynopedia page for Warsaw: (gynopedia.org/Warsaw). It's like WikiTravel for women's health.

The morning after pill is almost impossible to get even with a prescription. The chemist will not 'serve' you and they are legally within their rights as they will say that their religion does not allow this.

LOL LOL...
new kato-PISlam government will even ban those pills from use.
just buy them in some other normal country, and - even more important - plan your sexual life well... there is something like anticonception

anyway, recent changes in polish politics show that the people who have MOST to say about family planning or women's life are a) men b) single and without wife and kids

good luck with that in this f.. up country !
Thanks Podlasie,. Thanks Malopolska for electing those people :->

LOL LOL.. plan your sexual life .

Since when killing unborn children has been a part of the plan?

do you consider 24 hours cells as "unborn children" ? good luck with that.
and yeah, I wish that people would plan their sexual life well, but when the emotions, passion and feelings come to play - eveything can happen.

even something like sex without condom. I think that its better to have child that you actually want to have, then the "accidental" one.

It just means that, in a country that borders 6 others, women who are able to will just source the tablets elsewhere. Apart from those who are unable; they will instead suffer.

Nothing to consider that one is obvious to anyone with a brain.

eveything can happen.

Yes are consequences. A big word, I know.

I think that its better to have child that you actually want to have, then the "accidental" one.

I think it is better not to kill children.

women who are able to will just source the tablets elsewhere

Oh, yes a law doesn't work need to be abolished. Let's start with the law that says that murder is a crime. Eh?

Apart from those who are unable; they will instead suffer.

What will they suffer?

murder is a crime

It is indeed, so let's hope any politician who votes for that bill will be prosecuted for the murder of any women who die through pre-eclampsia or backstreet terminations. Eh.

Doctors too, if they allow a patient to die because they prefer to save a foetus.

These people are culpable. I'd say it's on their conscience, however I doubt that JK and his cohorts have them.

Maybe id 'sex education' taught young people (and others) that they have ...at least 40 years to have good sex, they would not be in such a rush to try something new. Forbidden fruit tastes so much better. You will never stop people from indulging in sexual activity, but if they were taught in 'the ins and outs' (sorry, bad choice of words) the consequences of any action, they may just prevent 'unwanted' pregnancies.

It is very difficult, when you are in the throws of passion, to say...o.k. that's as far as we go...

Maybe

Practise and a human nature at the state of thoughtless teens gave an answer to your maybes. Quite the opposite. Anyway that is not a rocket science!

I always criticized girls who were not 'careful' or who went too far with a man until I myself was in such a situation. Then I knew exactly what they felt, so unless you walk in someone else's shoes you do not know how easy it is for 'emotions' to get the better of you.

A woman howver, should be able to decide what to do with her body whether it is plastic surgery or any other procedure.
