FDA: Morning-after pill OK for ages 15 and up
Associated Press ^ | April 30, 2013 | LAURAN NEERGAARD

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The government is moving the morning-after pill over the counter but only those 15 and older can buy it - an attempt to find middle ground just days before a court-imposed deadline to lift all age restrictions on the emergency contraceptive.

KEYWORDS: contraception; fda; morningafterpill; otc; pharmaceuticals; pill; planb; proaborts
The FDA said the Plan B One-Step will be packaged with a product code that prompts the cashier to verify a customer's age. Anyone who can't provide such proof as a driver's license, birth certificate or passport wouldn't be allowed to complete the purchase.

Well, here's my Girl Scout membership card, and my roller
rink pass, my 4-H Summer Camp Cerificate... oh drat!...
Why are all these Bazooka Joe bubblegum wrappers in here...
here's a real cute picture of me and my big brother Holden,
but he's on the West Coast now... how about this ticket stub
from the Historical Museum? You see, you have to be over 12
to go down in the coal mine exhibit... You said 15, right?
I got my braces on last summer and next Christmas they are
supposed to be removed and I am supposed to be 16 then...
and here's my dentist Dr. Maxon - I could get his phone number, maybe...

Isn’t it amazing they have to lock up the Sudafed pills yet they sell the RU486 over the counter? As Yakoff Smirnoff says, “what a country!!!!!” Sometimes the “logic machine’s” readout says “TILT!”

This over the counter purchase allows a death panel of one.

I wish there was something we could take for an unwanted presidency.

I think if it was a heart drug and this many people died from using it the FDA would never allow its use without a doctor’s consent.

“Plan B” is not RU-486.

One of the worst examples of activist judges I have EVER looked at. May God have mercy on this nation.

.. and if drug stores refuse to sell to anyone under 18?

Hey - FDA - could you at least support labeling? If it is good enough for cigarettes that may kill you after 50 years shouldn’t there be something for a drug that immediately kills a human being?

Notice that it says, “Those 15 and older...” This means girls won’t be the only ones able to buy it.

What happens when teenage boys start slipping these into their pregnant girlfriends’ food like the guy in Wisconsin?

Face it. The Ubama FDA would like to see as many born and unborn US citizens as possible die. Quickly.

It’s not RU 486, but it is a high dose of birth control that causes the uterine lining to become slippery and stop a fertilized egg (conceived child) from implanting.

That’s one of the issues with it — it does not always stop conception, so it can cause an abortion. Abortion promoters try to deny this by changing the definition of pregnancy to “when implantation occurs” and not when “conception occurs.”

Imagine what this drug will do to the uterine lining of girls who use it multiple times.

Considering the machine has been thrown on the side and met a number of blows from a sledge hammer, TILT is about all you’ll ever see out of that machine.
