Is this the "morning after" pill I've heard so much about?

No. Those pills operate in a different way and during a different time frame than RU486.

Morning after pills, or "emergency contraception," are essentially very high, multiple dosages of birth control pills taken within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse.

While there have been some limited tests of RU486 as a morning after pill, with mixed results, the only purpose for which the U.S. sponsor has sought government approval is for use to abort a confirmed pregnancy weeks after the baby has already attached himself or herself to the uterine wall.
