Posted on 12/06/2011 9:07:48 AM PST by RummyChick
The Washington Post reports that, under President Obama and his Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, the Food and Drug Administration is considering letting anyone of any age buy the controversial morning-after pill Plan B directly off drugstore and supermarket shelves without a prescription

What would the manufacturers think? Bad outcome = huge lawsuit. So, therefore, we won’t be making this product.
Savings?? Of course, mothers wishing to abort an inconvenient child will die...but who cares..right??
This is to ensure that nobody’s kid gets “punished with a baby”.
So let’s see. I can go in and concoct a plan to buy some moneymakers at Walgreens and use my Register Rewards to kill a baby with a pill.
Thanks Obama - Want some fries with your Satan Sandwich?
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).
Drug companies are pushing for it.
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???
My 17 year old son has a driver’s license. He cannot even buy dry gas in the auto-parts store because ‘he might abuse it’
Modern automotive paints are highly restricted (by age). Bet that never stopped “ol’ Huffer ‘bama” eh!
I can’t believe you people want to stifle the free market. /sarc
There is going to come a time when voting every four years isn’t going to be adequate to deal with this stuff.
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?!?!?
Would be available at your local Walgreens over the counter I think so
I got question would Obama admisation force pharamcy carry even they think it not good idea
But cold remedies that worked were removed.
I think so many resets right now EVIL ONES
Like at my local CVS would be 3 extra bucks back if you buy the Morning after pill I going there LOL! on CVS jokes
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.
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
“Instead, Plan B would be available on store shelves, along with condoms, contraceptive sponges and spermicides.”
I’m just surpised that they haven’t mandated that it be made available with school lunches.
I’m just surprised that they haven’t mandated that it be made available with school lunches.
Can Viagra and other ED meds be far behind, like they are in Mexico and other countries?
That time has already arrived.
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.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
“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.
and so Obama’s big F-U to the Catholic Church continues...
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.
Please forgive my state for inflicting the evilness of Kathleen Sebelius on the entire nation.
“and so Obamas 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.
How sad to see our nation go this way
Todays kids have no sense of responsibility.They always won and got an award and now they can take a pill to kill the baby and drunk night the night before.What magic button happens if they get an STD? Obama is evil.
Forgot to add a ching ching for Obama’s sick campaign from the pharma companies.
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.
but asthma inhalers and vitamins will be by prescription only
frigging what, so let me get this right
They take the Asthma pump thing off the market even though it helps people with a bad disease but put this on the market and make it so easy to get.
This admin is full of and about sex, earlier today reports came out that this idiot has ordered all diplomats to stop discrimination of cross dressers, weirdo’s , homosexuals etc.
Nah nothing more to do but to do this kind of crap
In MA I think it is they have took cough medicine off the shelves but they will put this on up
This admin and their dear leader are completely lunatic
Asthma medication has been stopped and the newer ones are being taken off the market but hey a girl aged 13 now can have sex and not worry about her parents from finding out that she can kill a kid.
You know socialists reverse things. Good is bad and evil is okey-dokey.
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.
Euthanasia tablets, or for the unwilling...in coffee-creamer form.
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
Ron Paul will be ecstatic.
Wonder what the Pope thinks of this?
