p.s. your source is a modern medical organization - hardly a reliable source for Torah Thought/Law

comment Morning After Pill in Halacha
"I asked if you would throw him out of the community forever, and you said no". Actually, I said I would leave him to his fate - the fate decided by Halacha (what ever that may be). His personal feeling and circumstances are only relevant if and when Halacha choses to make them so. RE: "taking this pill is a far 'better option' than forcing her to endure ...": it's only a better option if Halacha makes it an option - not if it's what YOU find most convent. Unless you have a source for Halacha making this distinction, it remains untrue and fabricated.

@Will weather the ma pill is an issur or not seems to be the topic of this question. Either it is or it isnt. But to answer your question: Yes, someone that east something non-kosher is PERMANENTLY affected. While he can do teshuva, it would seem (based on seforim) that the physical-spiritual harm is PERMANENT. And while I can understand that someone has a spiritual slip/fall, I fail to see how that would change the halachic consequences. "Will you ruin his life" - I won't, although he already might have. The Halacha won't change for his connivence.

My comment was intended to be cynical. People these days come up with the most far-fetched heterim (which sometimes apply in really minor situations) and like to apply them to MAJOR halachic questions, because they find it convenient to do so. I'm not sure how an "observant teenage girl" (or any teenage girl for that matter) becomes pregnant by "mistake". Especially if she had "unprotected sex" and "willingly". I also don't see how her intentional mistake would change a Halacha. If I "accidentally" become hungry on Yom Kipur, may I eat? If I "mistakenly" want to smoke on Shabbos, may I?

"embarrass her family, deny her any decent shidduch in the future, and effectively ban her from all aspects of community participation." Which has always been a factor in Halacha!

I sure hope we did't start judging halachic qualification based on a SE rating...

This question is not a good fit to our Q&A format. We expect answers to generally involve facts, references, or specific expertise; this question will likely solicit opinion, debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion.
