~ I would differentiate the morning-after pill from standard birth control pills in that the morning-after pill is not a contraceptive. However, I wouldn't call either of them abortive agents. ~

The morning after pill is indeed bc pills. Here is a list of the different brands of the morning after pill, which are only birth control pills taken at higher doses.

Preven (one dose is 2 blue pills; repeat in 12 hours)
Ovral (one dose is 2 white pills; repeat in 12 hours)
Alesse (one dose is 5 pink pills; repeat in 12 hours)
Levlite (one dose is 5 pink pills; repeat in 12 hours)
Nordette (one dose is 4 light orange pills; repeat in 12 hours)
Levlen (one dose is 4 light orange pills; repeat in 12 hours)
Levora (one dose is 4 white pills; repeat in 12 hours)
Lo/Ovral (one dose is 4 white pills; repeat in 12 hours)
Triphasil (one dose is 4 yellow pills; repeat in 12 hours)
Tri-Levlen (one dose is 4 yellow pills; repeat in 12 hours)
Trivora (one dose is 4 pink pills; repeat in 12 hours)

All you do is take the first dose within 72 hours of unprotected sex and repeat 12 hours later.

You should always check with your doctor first.
