FDA Says Morning-After Pill Must Be Available To Anyone Over 15
The Guardian ^ | April 30, 2013 | Staff

Posted on 04/30/2013 4:48:47 PM PDT by lbryce

The morning-after pill is to be made available over the counter to anyone in the US aged 15 and over, authorities announced on Tuesday.

Days before a court-imposed deadline, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) lowered the age limit for Plan B and said it that a prescription would no longer be required to buy it. Instead, the pill can sit on drugstore shelves just like condoms, but buyers will have to prove their age at the cash register.

Earlier this month, a federal judge ruled that Plan B should be sold without restriction and gave the FDA 30 days to act. The FDA said its latest decision was independent of the court case.

Scientists, government health agencies and groups including the American Medical Association, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the American Academy of Pediatrics have recommended unrestricted access to emergency contraceptives for years. The FDA said in a December 2011 memo that "there is adequate and reasonable, well-supported, and science-based evidence that Plan B One-Step is safe and effective and should be approved for nonprescription use for all females of child-bearing potential".

That recommendation, delivered as the campaign for the 2012 presidential election was getting under way, was overruled by the US secretary of health and human services, Kathleen Sebelius.

In a judgment last month, US federal district court judge Edward Korman described the restriction as "a strong showing of bad faith and improper political influence". He said the decision was "arbitrary, capricious, and unreasonable", and ruled Plan B should be made available without age restrictions.

"A strong showing of bad faith and improper political influence" is the way all liberals view conservative positions.

I suspect that the decision to make the morning-after pill available without a prescription, has more to do with liberals circumventing the pharmacist's ability to deny prescription medication than it has to do with the convenience, availability to acquire the pill at a moment's notice so that no pregnancy can develop.

Several years ago a morning-after prescription pill caused a furor when pharmacists in certain states having the right, power to deny dispensing prescription medication for any reason, refused to dispense the morning after pill based on their religious views on birth control, which of course had the liberals going stark, raving mad. But, if no prescription is required the pharmacists have no mechanism in which to refuse the non-prescription morning-after pill from being displayed, sold along side condoms.

From a medical standpoint, just how safe is the morning after pill?

I'm a doctor, and I know that NO drug is without side effects, some deadly.

Here they've randomly chosen 15 years old as the cut off for making an "informed" decision.

But I'd never sell a 15 year old 10 boxes of Nyquil.Or even a bottle of cooking sherry.

Even though I guess it's "legal" for them to buy.

Little by little (thanks to liberals) this country is slipping away and not a word from scumbag republicans. No depraved act is to much for the liberals. Many obama voters will go for this. Don’t teach your children morality, just give them a pill. Remember, obama said his daughters shouldn’t have to suffer from an accident.

It seems like the Second Coming is right around the corner. Lord, PLEASE come soon!

It’s purely political. Unconstitutional federal agencies that serve no purpose other than advocating even bigger government and socialist politics like the FDA, the EPA, education dept, labor dept, energy dept, commerce dept, USDA, HUD, and hundreds of federal welfare programs etc, etc, etc, should be defunded, disbanded, dissolved and permanently shuttered.

With or without this change, they can already do that. "Plan B" is already over-the-counter (though kept behind the counter, like Sudafed) - nothing is stopping pimps from buying it now, and this new rule changes nothing in that regard.

It doesn't surprise me that a British journal would overlook that the states have never delegated to the federal government via the Constitution the specific power to regulate intrastate commerce, including health issues. But here are several excerpts from Supreme Court opinions which clarify such limits on the federal government's powers. Note that these excerpts have been posted in related threads.
"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 (emphases added)." --Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824.

"Congress is not empowered to tax for those purposes which are within the exclusive province of the States." --Justice John Marshall, Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824.

"Inspection laws, quarantine laws, health laws of every description, as well as laws for regulating the internal commerce of a state (emphasis added) 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 beyond the power of Congress.” –Linder v. United States, 1925.

"obama said his daughters shouldn’t have to suffer from an accident"

Having engaged in good-time sex, willingly, is not an "accident" by any stretch of the imagination.....WHATSOEVER.

Encouraging un-married women to engage in Flukeing for the fun of it, with no responsiblity whatsoever for the outcome, is what is taught in Liberal-run schools today. We wonder what makes kids go over the edge, shooting their classmates, etc., when we teach them that it's ALWAYS someone else's fault for mis-behavior/deviance, and they are ALWAYS just "victims".

Until America realizes that we HAD a Christian, self-resptecting, dignified, moral NUCLEAR FAMILY with Breadwinner+child-rearer WHICH RESULTED IN PROSPERITY AND PRIDE THAT WAS THE ENVY OF THE WORLD, because Americans had VALUES and self-reliance, not parasitic dependency on the backs of others, we will go further into the Abyss.

EVERY pregnancy, whether terminated by abortion or brought to birth, should REQUIRE DNA-testing for determination of the paternal father, who will bear the responsibility for ALL costs associated with the pregnancy, period. No more reliance on Welfare, EBT's, WIC, Food Stamps, etc., when un-limited fatherless children and un-limited abortions are billed to Taxpayers, while the parasites "let the good times roll!"

And those under fifteen who can get pregnant are not allowed to get the pill. Case a couple of weeks ago where the mother, 14, killed her baby and the husband, 15, no where around. Child was in care of grandmother. The pill can be arguable in both directions, pro/con.

Exactly, when a radical is elected to office, the radicals come out of the woodwork.

It is the political equivalent of shock and awe. Before the dust settles on one ludicrous proposal they hit you with one or two more.

While you are putting out one fire, you are not paying as much attention to the previous proposal(s).

Pedal to the metal, off the cliff into the abyss.

I don’t believe you. In what state can a 14 year old girl legally marry a 15 year old boy? And if such a thing happened, obviously the whole gang of them is so whacked out such violence would happen even if she had been allowed to kill the baby in the womb. And another reason your lame argument is fake is because abortion is legal. So if this 14 year old girl went crazy because she had a baby she didn’t want, she could have legally aborted it, or legally had it adopted.

Why are you promoting abortion on FR? The morning after pill is an abortifacient.

Prescription or no prescription, how safe is the morning after pill? When news of this pill first came out I recall reading something about China wanting to supply the pill to Americans. WTF??? How really stupid would it be....for us to accept morning after pills manufactured in China...considering their past track record re: dangerous and destructive products exported here? Not to mention their known human rights violations track record.

If China is indeed allowed to ‘provide’ the morning after pill to Americans with the full sanction by Obama and the Democrat leftists in power, what are they aiming for here? Mass sterilization? I can’t think of a better way for one of America’s enemies to ‘bring us down’ than that. Of course....we probably wouldn’t know the pills caused sterilization until it was way too late.

Call me paranoid, but this issue has been a concern of mine for some time now. And that concern and worry is not going away.

Oh it gets much worse. In some states a girl 16 is medically an adult. Meaning the county health department {funded by state} can do STD, pregnancy testing, even dispense this pill {which has significant risk} without your knowledge or permission. As a matter of fact under some state laws parents can not obtain this information from doctors or health department. This has been going on for some time.

I think that the ridiculous assumption here is that 15-year old girls are rational adults, and will follow directions, etc. These are potentially dangerous and powerful drugs. If they did something else - actually, ANYTHING else...I guarantee that they would require a prescription. Basically, “plan B” is an slight overdose of certain hormones, and women have been doing plan B for years by taking several higher-dose types of birth control pills the morning after.

http://ec.princeton.edu/questions/dose.html

The kids (yes, kids) who are supposed to be reading directions are the same ones that believe that you can’t get pregnant the first time and that a rubber band works.

Heh, heh - “rational adults”...I suppose that doesn’t include the 42% that don’t know that Obamacare is a law...

I just read the article. It did not say that the 14 year old murderer was married to the 15 year old inseminator.

Your argument that because a soulless 14 year old murdered her child is reason to allow more teenager girls to murder their unborn children is beyond stupid. Plus the pill wouldn’t have helped her, she’s under 15. Of course in reality that won’t matter, others will buy the pills for girls under 15.

Maybe we could all chip in and buy so many the market will not be available to little girls who want to kill their offspring. Be like “Big Cyst” and hog the market. Imagine of we had a network of pharmacists and consumers who purchased the product and destroyed it faster than it could be manufactured. At the same time seek out the manufacturers and do everything in our power legally to thwart production.

To some it would be. To other, understandable. So for your edification, why deny this pill to those who can become pregnant at ages under fifteen? Then I pointed out a story where a girl who’s fourteen killed her baby. The argument is not about abortion as some previous poster couldn’t comprehend the written word in English, but about the availability of this pill. It is not a pro/con argument re: abortion. It’s an argument of priorities of age. Children as young as nine have become pregnant.
