This is scary shit! Bush is really on a roll with this and his plans to try and
pass a bill that will ban same sex marriages in the constitution!!!!!!!!
After pressure from right-wing groups and anti-choice members of Congress,
the Food and Drug Administration announced on February 13 that it would
delay its decision on over-the-counter status for the emergency
contraceptive Plan B. The FDA claims it needs more time to evaluate the use
of Plan B among teenagers, despite the recommendations of the FDA's own
expert panel that Plan B should be approved for over-the-counter status
The deadline on the decision was extended 90 days from the original date of
February 20. Please send a message in support of EC OTC to the FDA
The current prescription requirement harms women by imposing unnecessary
burdens to access emergency contraception, which is most effective when
taken within 24 hours of unprotected intercourse, birth control failure, or
sexual assault. Emergency contraceptive pills are safe and effective and
have the potential to cut in half the number of unintended pregnancies in
the US and prevent as many as 800,000 abortions each year.
