United States of Tara & Propaganda

New show United States of Tara seems fantastic when it's not dropping odd propaganda against the morning after pill. Somehow the pilot episode referred to Emergency Contraceptives as "kill pills" and very specifically said "I didn't want that fertilized egg hitting my uterus."

That's not how they work. They stop the ovarian follicles from popping releasing the egg in the first place. They send up a strong signal that says, no egg now, and prevent fertilization in the first place.
