Morning after pill

Q: Is the morning after pill otherwise known as emergency contraception allowed in Islam?

A: Recently we have heard that these types of medications have disastrous after effects. One must be careful not to do something that will harm her or the child if there is any child later on.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
