Unlimited Plan B Abortion Pill in Stores for Kids

For the cost of half a tank of gasoline, anyone can now purchase a potent drug (which is very harmful when directions are not followed specifically) for the explicit purpose, according to the product label, of flushing a fertilized egg -- a human being -- from its mother's womb.  The pill, quickly becoming the "contraceptive" of choice for doctors, sexual predators, and hedonists alike, is displayed on store shelves along side typical contraceptives.

For background, read how pediatricians are pushing the Plan B onto teens, and read the statistics of its increased usage.

Since the early 2000s, women’s reproductive health groups have been pushing to get Plan B over-the-counter . . .

In 2011, the Food and Drug Administration granted its approval for making the birth control, which comes in one- and two-dose forms, available over-the-counter, but that decision was overruled by Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who expressed concerns that girls as young as 11 would be able to purchase the product without a prescription. HHS placed an age restriction on the emergency contraceptive, requiring anyone under age 17 to have a prescription while allowing older women over-the-counter access.

However, this spring, U.S. District Judge Edward Korman in Brooklyn overturned the decision, saying it was made in “bad faith and improper political influence.” In response . . . the Department of Justice dropped an initial plan to appeal, making it possible for Plan B One-Step to be sold in pharmacies, without a prescription and without any age restrictions.

. . . The pill is designed to prevent pregnancy by keeping a woman’s ovary from releasing eggs for a longer period of time, by impeding fertilization or even by preventing a fertilized egg from implanting in the uterus. [In other words, aborting a fertilized egg.]

. . . However, the Food and Drug Administrations also says it does not have any authority to require retailers to carry specific products, including Plan B. Thus, stores remain free to sell or not sell the abortion-inducing drug.

Spokespersons for CVS, Rite Aid, and Walgreens told . . . that they would be selling the drug on shelves in their stores for anyone to access. . . .

“Over-the-counter access to emergency contraceptive products has the potential to further decrease the rate of unintended pregnancies in the United States,” said Dr. Janet Woodcock, director of the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research.
