FDA to college: Carry on with morning-after pill vending machines
The Washington Times ^ | 1/30/13 | Jessica Chasmar

Posted on 01/31/2013 9:01:24 PM PST by Slings and Arrows

Controversy has surrounded Shippensburg University, in Pennsylvania, ever since it decided to provide Plan B, commonly referred to as the “morning-after pill,” in a college campus vending machine along with condoms and other forms of birth control.

The Food and Drug Administration said last week that it had looked into the validity of the machine and will take no action against it.

Talk about a war against women. How evil to promote high dose hormones to stupid, ignorant young women.

After a night of romping in the sack, any girl being treated by her boyfrend to breakfast in bed can expect to have her food laced with the stuff.

I thought this was a prescription medication?....you mean I can't get a stinking sudafed for my stuffed up nose without showing my drivers license, having them scan it, and signing my name, but we can let ANYBODY of any age or any sex I might add go buy potentially dangerous meds?....

I can see it now....men buying these pills and slipping them to their pregnant gf's.....

this is indeed a world run by satan and his willing minions...

It is a strong, dangerous drug (particularly to the zygote), but dangerous, as well, to the woman taking it. Let it happen and let the lawsuits begin!

No, Plan B is OTC, a decision which I’m sure is not political in the least.

My thoughts exactly.

This country has truly slid into Sodom and Gomorrah.

This stupid country will allow pot smoking without filters but attempt to put cigarette smoking right up there with crimes of the century!

We had condoms in the vending machines in the early 90’s when I was in college. I worked at the front desk of our dorm and would have to make change for those getting something from the vending machine. Funny thing is anyone I saw buying condoms from the vending machine I never thought had any use for them! Water balloons?

Not so funny thing is some nut case girl is going to buy a ton of these pills and OD. Just wait, it will happen.

Wouldn’t surprise me. Or, as previously pointed out, a guy will slip it into the food whichever young lady he enjoyed the night before.

If they had high-fructose soda pop in those vending machines, you can bet the FDA would be all over it.

Exactly. The game was rigged from the very beginning for this politically correct drug that furthers the leftist agenda.

Why let a pesky doctors prescription and all the hassle associated with it possibly get between the drug user and the leftist pusher man. Vending machines today elementary and high school clinics tomorrow.

Precisely. And if a few women are sicked or killed by a powerful medication, well, you know what Comrade Stalin said about eggs and omelets.

“... buying these pills and slipping them into their pregnant gf’s...”

That is the first thing that popped into my mind. This is a drug.. what happens if drug A interacts with drug B (a drug that the girl may already be taking?). What surprises me is Shippensburg is a nice, small looking school. It isn’t a huge school like U of Md (for example). We actually toured it last Spring. Looks can be deceiving.
