Is Amazon selling black market Plan B?

 
Plan B on AmazonYou won’t hear me say this often, but the pro-abortion website RH Reality Check has posted a well done article today, “Buyer Beware: Can we trust cheap Plan B One-Step on Amazon,com?”

This week some on the Left have heralded the discovery that one can purchase Plan B, the name brand for the morning-after pill, on Amazon for a much cheaper price than one can buy it at a pharmacy or clinic.

For whatever reason, RHRC took a second look at something that would seem almost too good to be true.

Pay no attention to how great Planned Parenthood thought Plan B was 5 minutes ago

Just notice its sparkly new (and expensive) Plan C

 
2013-12-10_1105In 2005, after the FDA under President George W. Bush resisted liberal pressure to make the hormonal emergency contraceptive Plan B available over-the-counter, Planned Parenthood was furious, claiming unfettered access to hormonal ECs would cut the number of abortions in America by a whopping 67%, from 1.2 million annually to 400,000:

Insane: Judge orders OTC emergency contraception to all ages nationwide

FE_PR_081204_pills_540425x283One round of emergency contraceptives contains four to 12 times the dosage of a birth control pill.

The long-term effects of emergency contraception on the bodies of girls and women are as yet unknown.

At present we do know the Pill is composed of synthetic female steroids that are environmentally toxic, increase the risk of breast cancer, alter phermones, kill libido, and cause depression, anxiety, and mood disturbances.

Is AAP’s “routine Plan B Rx for teen girls” step too far for Obama?

During Thanksgiving week the American Academy of Pediatrics announced its recommendation that “morning after” prescriptions be issued to adolescent girls as a matter of course…. This approach, besides being deeply insulting to the human dignity of adolescents, exposes the reality that when we talk about sex these days, we all too often put good health […]

BPAS: Planning for sex like planning for rain

Our Just in Case kit means you have a back-up there when you need it, wherever you happen to be…. If you carry an umbrella in your bag or a spare tyre in your boot no one would suggest you are hoping for rain or planning on a puncture. Having the morning-after-pill to hand is […]

Is it true the morning-after pill does NOT cause abortions?

Yesterday The New York Times posted the article, “Abortion qualms on the morning-after pill may be unfounded.”

Before quoting the NYT piece let me make clear it makes no such claim about hormonal birth control pills, only Plan B, advertised to be taken up to three days after unprotected sex, and Ella, advertised to be taken up to five days after unprotected sex.

In a nutshell:

The problem with making the morning-after pill as easy to get as a candy bar

Fox News reported today that a Texas high school coach faces felony charges after giving the morning-after pill to one of her underage 16-yr-old students. There’s the first reason not to make the morning-after pill easily available to adults: Just because an adult buys it doesn’t mean an adult will take it. Shippensburg University in […]

Plan B: Where liberals and Big Pharma make strange bedfellows

[W]hat makes my liberal friends believe a child at 11 years old, or even 16, wouldn’t use the convenience of condom-aisle Plan B as an excuse to use it instead of condoms, or to skip the hassle of seeing a doctor to get birth control pills, even though the drug is explicitly not supposed to […]
