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

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

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

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.”
