WASHINGTON (AP) — Women may soon have an easier way to help prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex now that government advisers have recommended that morning-after birth control should be sold without a doctor’s prescription.
“It’s extraordinarily safe,” said Dr. Alastair Wood of Vanderbilt University, an adviser to the Food and Drug Administration.
In fact, he said, women probably should keep emergency contraception in their medicine cabinet just in case it’s ever needed. “We don’t tell people to buy a fire extinguisher after the fire started.”
We also don’t tell people to start a fire in the first place unless they truly wanted to start a fire. The child that can die as the result of this “emergency contraception” when it acts as a chemical abortion will not be able to talk about the extraordinarily safeness of this pill. More progress by the culture of death to turn every home medicine cabinet into a do-it-yourself abortuary.
We are a society that doesn’t allow its citizens access to antibiotics without an expensive dog and pony show at the doctors office. (Probably with good cause 85% of the time, but I really resent spending $100+ on an office visit to have my strep diagnoses confirmed – I haven’t missed yet in 25 years of parenthood – leaving me with barely enough cash for the prescription.) But an abortifacient? Heck, every woman should have at least one in her medicine cabinet. Sell them OTC? How soon will someone propose giving them away?
