If you are taking birth control pills and become pregnant continue to take the pills can it harm the baby?

If you ARE pregnant- you have no need to take birth control, you cannot get 'more pregnant' by not taking them or anything like that. Stop taking the birth control pills and start taking prenatal vitamins. Studies are linking birth control pills to being harmful to your baby- but even if they are not harmful- why continue to take them if you are already pregnant? Again, you cannot get pregnant with multiple babies at once like one now, one in a month or anything like that. Once you are pregnant, you are pregnant and birth control will not do anything positive for your little one and is pointless to continue using.
