Plan B One-Step emergency contraception is a backup plan that helps prevent pregnancy when taken within 72 hours (3 days) after unprotected sex or birth control failure. The sooner it’s taken, the better it works. It contains levonorgestrel, the same hormone used in many birth control pills—just at a higher dose. It should not be used as regular birth control, because it’s not as effective.
I am, personally, quite happy that a "Plan B" contraception option is available for those who may need or want it. However, I actually got to thinking about the "Plan B" idea in a rather different context, based on a couple of articles I have recently reviewed.
The Resilience website, for instance, recently posted an article titled, "Europe Needs a Plan B: Radical Political Change is Coming." That article is well worth reading.
In addition, I have also recently read an article by Gregory Foster, who is a professor at the National Defense University in Washington, D.C. He is a West Point graduate, and a decorated veteran of the Vietnam War, and Foster makes the case for "demilitarizing the military." He believes that "Pentagon Excess Has Fueled a Civil-Military Crisis," in which "civilian control of the Military has become a fantasy."
