What would the manufacturers think? Bad outcome = huge lawsuit. So, therefore, we won’t be making this product.

These products (SHARES OWNED BY WHO? IN CONGRESS)
will fill the shelves previously occupied
by vitamins (soon to be illegal,
except for Moslems and Congress).

Meanwhile, the FDA is harassing farmers and food makers to make sure the apple juice you drink has lower arsenic than regular city tap-water.

Priorities a little screwed up at FDA maybe???

There was talk at one time about making OTC cold medicines by prescription only. I don’t understand why this pill doesn’t need a prescription but birth control pills do.

Yeah. It really make sense that a 13 year old girl couldn’t go to Wal Mart and buy certain OTC cold medicine, but she could walk right in and buy a pill to abort her baby.

What kind world are we living in?!?!?

So the FDA wants to ban most nutritional supplements put out since 1992 but has no problem with a pill sold OTC to kill an unborn baby.

UNFARKINGBELIEVABLE.

The FDA are postal workers in smocks. Schmucks in smocks taking their orders from the White Hut. Is there an alaphabet group in D.C. worth keeping? /s

When you have to have almost a court order to get simple over the counter decongestants at the pharmacy and the FDA is pressuring to get drugs that have been used for decades off pharmacy shelves, it seems strange that such a powerful drug with many possible side effects would be passed out like popcorn. This is just Obama delivering to Planned Parenthood in exchange for their help in his re-election.

“This is just Obama delivering to Planned Parenthood in exchange for their help in his re-election.”

This what you should expect from Obama, but it was President Bush who in 2006 gave approval for the over the counter status for the abortion-causing morning after pill Plan B Abortion Pill.

Bush made it possible to walk into a drug store and buy pills to murder a baby and Obama is simply making it a bit easier.

It is my opinion that the teachings of the vast majority of Christian perspective favor a goal for mankind above the instincts of other life forms such as dogs, pigs, rabbits, muslims, etc.

With Leftists in the leadership positions in our government it’s like shoveling against the tide.

“and so Obama’s big F-U to the Catholic Church continues...”

It appears that Obama just moved the abortion pills from behind the counter where President Bush placed the abortion pills, to in front of the counter.

Woo-Hoo! So I guess that Morphine will be next, right Barry.

OOPS, excuse me mr pResident, I meant Medicinal Cocaine. After all if a lowly dentist can write an Rx for it why bother with all the current hassle.

Just sell it to anyone 'of age'. Just like with this Baby Killing ABORTION drug (stupid asshat).

Next, they will force everyone to buy and keep these pills in their homes, under the guise of “healthcare” and under the Commerce Clause, and the idiot judges Klintoon, Bush the Idiot and Zero have appointed will uphold this as Constitutional.

According to the Mayo clinic website, if you’re 17, there are already 2 “morning after” pills available OTC at some pharmacies.

The “I don’t want my daughter punished with a baby” comment is going to be friendly fodder in 15 or so years. After his one term when Obama is on the lecture circuit and he has his grandkids, we can nickname them punishment, pain and torture.

this admin is plain nuts, we have a President who does not know how many states, what state he is ion or where HI is and has no clue about what languages certain Europeans speak

We have a nut in charges of the schools who is there to promote his homo agenda.

A DOJ who has been gun running and lying plus suing states which enforce a law while ignoring those which do not and then dropping charges of racists outside a voting stations.

A freeloading hypocritical woman who tells us all how much to eat and what to eat but she eats fry ups and loads of food.

Appoints a woman who has no cue about the law to the Supreme court.

Then there is the unions, pay offs to donors using the green energy scam and other issues.

Asthma meds get banned, light bulbs get banned, cough meds taken off shelves BUT THEY WANT TO PUT THIS PILL ON THE SHELVES.

IT’;S FRIGGING NUTS THIS ADMIN
