This is a back alley. Also called plan c.
In a move that surprises nobody that has been paying attention, the Administration decided to cave to the loud voices of anti-science, and Plan B will not be made available on pharmacy store shelves, next to the condoms, and other contraceptives. Despite science, reason, and good judgment being on their side. So while the FDA said things like this:
“There is adequate and reasonable, well-supported and science-based evidence that Plan B One-Step is safe and effective and should be approved for nonprescription use for all females of child-bearing potential,” (via)
The ‘argument’ was lost to people who think like this:
“Conservative lawmakers and advocacy groups…argue that wider availability could encourage sexual activity and make it easier for men to have sex with underage girls by forcing them to take the drug to prevent any pregnancies that could result.” (via)
Whaaaaaat? Two Questions:
Is that what they think the biggest deterrent is to child-rape? Having to schlepp the kid to soccer practice in a few years?
Are people this crazy to have grandkids?
