Emergency contraception actually gettable in emergency?

Filed under: News — posted by Breakup Girl @ 3:02 pm

A judge has thrown a shoe the book at the Bush-era FDA’s restrictions on emergency contraception, ruling that the agency must scrap its policy of preventing young women under 18 from buying Plan B over the counter. He gave the administration 30 days to make the change, snarling — rightly — that the “political considerations, delays and implausible justifications” (not to mention whispers of teen sex cults!)  tripping up the approval process for Plan B in general had stinkety-stank to high heaven. Rawk.

As Ellen Goodman wrote in 2005 of the redonkulous restriction: “What no one dared suggest is that just maybe teenagers should have the easiest, not the hardest access to Plan B. Aren’t the youngest precisely those who should be most protected from pregnancy? Or do we still think that motherhood should be the punishment for sex?” And: “If teenagers also need Plan B it’s because Plan A — abstinence — fails more often than condoms. Too many teenagers end up pregnant, facing Plan C: abortion or motherhood. In the name of protection, we are leaving teenagers far too vulnerable.” Now, one hopes, no more.

  4. Right now it appears like WordPress is the best blogging platform out there right now.

    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

  7. First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I’d like
    to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.

    I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.

    I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Cheers!

  8. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as
    though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence
    on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us
    something enlightening to read?
