FDA Rethinks Medication For Drunk, Irresponsible Pregosuaras’

This must have made the abortion on demand crowd jubilent:

The Food and Drug Administration unexpectedly announced its willingness Monday to make the emergency contraceptive, Plan B, available without prescription – but only to women 18 and older.

The announcement is the most concrete indication to date that the FDA, after more than two years of delays, is nearing a final decision on the controversial application to sell the so-called "morning after pill" over the counter.

How better to help out the dumb, drunk, and irresponsible then to put abortion pills on the same shelf as asprin and chapstick. Geez, you cannot even buy some cold medicines in North Carolina without seeing the pharmacist, but, you will be able to potentially abort a human life.

How better to help out the dumb, drunk, and irresponsible then to put abortion pills on the same shelf as asprin and chapstick. Geez, you cannot even buy some cold medicines in North Carolina without seeing the pharmacist, but, you will be able to potentially abort a human life. I could die if I eat a scallop, and get really sick from even touching a plate that had one on it. My EPI pen requires a prescription.

Of course, they AOD crowd is a wee bit upset that it hasn't been implemented immediately.

Dr. Andrew von Eschenbach, nominated to head the FDA, has taken an enormous amount of flack on the Hill, as well he should.

And, we have 9 wackos who do not understand private ownership:

OLYMPIA, Wash. Aug 1, 2006 (AP)— Amid a battle in Congress over whether to allow nonprescription sales of the Plan B morning-after pill, nine women have complained that area pharmacies failed to carry the pills or keep them in stock.

In complaints filed Monday with the Washington State Board of Pharmacy, the women said they were unable to get a total of 17 prescriptions for Plan B filled in June and July at four stores in the state capital and neighboring Lacey.

I wasn't aware that pharmacies were required to carry specific merchendise. Can I sue the local CVS if they do not carry my preferred alergy medicine, Tavist D? I'm sure I need it a wee bit then they need the Plan B pills. I have no control over being allergic to dust, cut grass, and oak. They have a choice over unsafe sex. One was ticked off because the condom broke. Perhaps a better brand could have been bought, and she could have used protection, as well. (Just for clarification, I do not think it is soley the woman's responsibility, but that of both partners)

"I couldn't find a Plan B pill for 45 hours after. I ended up getting pregnant. Then I had a miscarriage," Conrad said. "It was very painful emotionally and physically. I just wish it could have been avoided."

It could have been avoided. Do I really need to reiterate how?

    Unbelievable. I never thought of it like that— in NH you need a certificate from Gawd to get cold medicines. But this Plan B pill- always available.

  2. Its just another cog in the libs’ abortion on demand machine.

    Plan B is not an abortion drug, however. As far as I understand it, it will only stop an egg from implanting in the uterine wall. If it is there, it won’t do anything to either the mother or the child. (Because the drug only makes the woman’s body think she’s pregnant already, and…well, she is. No convincing necessary.)

    This was approved quite some time ago for over-the-counter sales by the scientists and doctors who advise the FDA, but they were overruled by those with an interest in policy decisions, which should be a separate issue. The FDA should be saying “this drug is safe” or “this drug is not safe”, not “we don’t think you should sell this safe drug”. Some other group, perhaps a group of people who were elected to make laws, should decide that.
