:: The National Catholic Bioethics Center (NCBC) has outlined four essential conditions that must be met before administering an MAP. They are:
 
:# The woman is not already pregnant from prior, freely-chosen sexual activity.
:# The woman has been sexually assaulted.
:# The woman has not yet ovulated (i.e. has not released an egg from her ovary into the fallopian tube where it could be fertilized by the attacker’s sperm).
:# The morning-after pill can reasonably be expected to prevent her from ovulating.
