Insane: Judge orders OTC emergency contraception to all ages nationwide
Jill Stanek ^ | Jill Stanek

One 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.

And we know easy access to emergency contraception is used by men to exploit women. By extension it is easy to surmise men might use it to exploit girls they are sexually abusing.

And we also know that increased availability of emergency contraception has caused many women to use what was supposed to be “plan b” as “plan a” – their primary method of birth control, this despite its abysmal failure rate. Quoting the New York Times, June 5, 2012:

The pregnancy prevention rates are probably lower than scientists and pill makers originally thought, he said – in some studies as low as 52 percent for Plan B and 62 percent for Ella.

JudgeKormanIt is into this mix that Federal District Court Judge Edward Korman, a Reagan appointee and pictured right, ruled this morning that emergency contraception must be made available other the counter nationwide to all ages (and genders). From U.S. News & World Report:

In his decision, Korman… said he had hoped the FDA would make the pill available without age restriction after his 2009 decision.”It was my view that the decision whether to make Plan B available without a prescription regardless of age was one that should be made by the FDA … not by a federal district judge,” he said in his decision.

In 2011, President Barack Obama said that he supported the FDA’s decision to not make the pill available to people of all ages.

“[The FDA] could not be confident that a 10-year-old or an 11-year-old [that goes] into a drugstore, should be able – alongside bubble gum or batteries – to buy a medication that potentially, if not used properly, could end up having an adverse effect,” he said. “The question is can we have the confidence that [adolescents] would potentially use Plan B properly.”

Korman argued that Plan B “would be among the safest drugs sold over-the-counter” and the FDA’s argument that young people could misuse the drug was very “unpersuasive.” He said he believed the FDA was under pressure from the George W. Bush administration to keep the drug age-restricted and that the case “has proven to be particularly controversial because it involves access to emergency contraception for adolescents who should not be engaging in conduct that necessitates the use of such drugs.”

He said that, legally, the argument is invalid.

“The standards are the same for aspirin and for contraceptives,” he said. “The standard for determining whether contraceptives or any other drug should be available over-the-counter turns solely on the ability of the consumer to understand how to use the particular drug ‘safely and correctly.’”

All I can say is this is insane. How ludicrous to call these pills “among the safest drugs sold over-the-counter” and to claim the Obama administration was somehow being hogtied by the ghost of the Bush administration.

Somebody needs to tell this idiot judge that this is NOT a vitamin pill that just makes the baby disappear.

There are 5 doc visits required, including 2 different medications at seperate times.

If the would be Mom, is as dumb as this judge, she is endangering her health and life.

Obama loses a case in court by the dictates of a Reagan appointed judge.

But a horrid decision for the youth and babies of America.

Rather big of him, wouldn't you say?

never known one guy to have the power to exploit women by birth control. never. not one. we have all this power. right. this is the lie women tell themselves to believe they’re helpless and innocent and it’s always someone else’s fault.

U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York, 1978-1982 <-—And in this position, that made him a Carter appointee. He sounds like a senile, autocratic moonbat.

the companies that make these drugs should immediately remove them from the shelves....this is a huge financial lawsuit happening once a young girl is killed....

why is it that male judges love to make rulings that hurt females?...the pill, abortion, and now this crap....if young boys had pills available to make them unable to impregnate someone for a date, believe me, there would be hell to pay...but its just girls...just medicate and mutilate the girls...

I have had cases before Korman, albeit not recently. He was always a smart guy and a very tough, law and order judge.

He was appointed U.S. Attorney by Carter, but he was in the Solicitor general's office under Nixon and was appointed a judge by Reagan.

i doubt it. they haven’t been forcing anyone to take any of the other pills they can get their hands on. if a woman takes pills it’s because she wants to take them. I have never met any guy who has this power over their wives or girlfriends. not anywhere i’ve ever been.

Unintended consequence will be that it can’t be covered by insurance policies.

Somewhere, someway, an astute media type (Breitbart? O’Keefe) will see the inconsistency in this order and its correlation to “equal marriage”.

There isn’t a fag or lez that needs Plan B.

misbegotten beliefs that fly in the face of essential Liberty, ignoring all other matters of law that respect that minors are immature individuals not yet prepapred to make all decisions for themselves, and by ignoring that the judge ignores the essential Liberty of parents to carryout the obligations that parents have to their children

Mmmm— now doctors are wearing black robes instead of white ones. Guess these hacktivist tyrant judges will start writing prescriptions required for aspirins in the near future ay? Who knew OblahMaoCare included judges doing double duty as doctors?

If patriots really want to fight corrupt federal judges who usurp state legislative powers, it would be a good idea if they got themselves up to speed on the federal government's constitutionally limited powers. In fact, the Founding States made the 10th Amendment to clarify that, since the states have never amended the Constitution to grant Congress the specific power to regulate, tax and spend for things like public healthcare, government power to regulate such issues are automatically reserved uniquely to the states.

Here's some official clarifications about unique state power to regulate healthcare from justices who actually protected the Constitution that they swore to defend.

"State inspection laws, health laws, and laws for regulating the internal commerce of a State, and those which respect turnpike roads, ferries, &c. are not within the power granted to Congress (emphasis added)." --Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824.

"Inspection laws, quarantine laws, health laws of every description (emphasis added), as well as laws for regulating the internal commerce of a state and those which respect turnpike roads, ferries, &c., are component parts of this mass." --Justice Barbour, New York v. Miln, 1837.

“Direct control of medical practice in the states is obviously (emphasis added) beyond the power of Congress.” –Linder v. United States, 1925.

I told a meeting of Republicans about 15 years ago that we should dance around abortion since 70% of the public support choice; there were some boos. The next night at about 3AM, I was awakened by an 8’ angel without wings standing at the foot of my bed dressed like a Roman soldier who loudly said: “I am Michael and I have come from the Throne of God to tell you that you pride yourself on never having killed anyone but I am here to tell you that you killed your own daughter”! My wife had an IUD and I remembered that day. He then showed me my teenage daughter who looks a lot like her mom and she said: “I love you daddy”. Then they both vanished. I fell out of my bed and cried for about 15 minutes. This will not end well for judge Korman or anybody who kills a child even if it is just one cell.

Yep. And then we will be seeing it featured on those huckster lawyer commercials -

"If you were injured by the OTC Abortion Pill call me."
