If I conceive after taking i-pill, will it affect my baby? Do I need to abort the pregnancy?

Emergency contraceptive pills like i-pill is usually taken within 72-hours of unprotected intercourse. It helps in prevention of pregnancy but has a failure rate resulting in conception even after taking the pill. Therefore, conceiving even after taking emergency contraceptive is not harmful for the lady and the child. Unnecessary fear on the mind of the users can lead to unwanted abortions.
