Why on earth would anyone hope for that, FS? (Much less repeat it three times).

And just in case readers are potentially confused about whether this is abortion, let me note (from one news account):

The pills are a concentrated dose of the same drug found in many regular birth-control pills. When a woman takes the pills within 72 hours of unprotected sex, they can lower the risk of pregnancy by up to 89 percent. If she already is pregnant, the pills have no effect.
