Dr. Med. Rudolf Ehmann:
In December 2012, an allegedly raped woman was refused admission by two Catholic hospitals in Cologne. This lead to a public discussion about the availability of the Morning-After Pill (MAP). The consequence was the approval of the MAP in case of rape by Cardinal Meisner who consulted particular expert organisations of gynaecologists. They stated that the MAP only inhibits ovulation. In this case, they referred to the pill ellaOne. (on the market since 2009) which contains Ulipristal Acetate (UPA) and would replace the Morning-After Pill with LNG.
