Plan B Now Available Without Prescription

Fox has some bad news:

Women may buy the morning-after pill without a prescription — but only with proof they're 18 or older, federal health officials ruled Thursday, capping a contentious 3-year effort to ease access to the emergency contraceptive.

This is bad news because, as I pointed out in my article "Plan B: Just Another Abortion Pill ," Plan B is more than an "emergency contraceptive." Plan B can cause a woman's body to reject a fertilized egg, preventing implantation and causing the death of a newly formed life.

The story mentions the same rhetoric from those who support Plan B:

The pills are a concentrated dose of the same drug found in many regular birth-control pills. When a woman takes the pills within 72 hours of unprotected sex, they can lower the risk of pregnancy by up to 89 percent. If she already is pregnant, the pills have no effect.

This is a misleading statement, "If she already is pregnant, the pills have no effect." This leads you to believe that the pill can not cause the death of an unborn child. However, the statement just shows the lack of understanding that the Left has regarding the Right's Argument against abortion. By "already pregnant" they mean "the egg has implanted on the wall of the uterus." However, the Right does not believe that life begins at implantation, but at conception.

Plan B is just another abortion pill, and the FDA has now legalized its over-the-counter sale.
