    The FDA has been "Arbitrary, capricious and unreasonable."

    Obama's FDA and HHS tried blocking it numerous times. The FDA was only forced to allow it in 2009 because of a court order.
    http://www.cnn.com/2009/HEALTH/04/22/plan.b.age/index.html

    And even after the court recommended that the FDA should allow it to girls of all ages, the head of HHS tried blocking it again.
    http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/08/h...r-sale-of-emergency-contraceptives.html?_r=2&

    So again, it took a court decision to force the FDA into doing it. The FDA isn't some far-left organization like you think.

    It's part of the Executive Branch. It's by definition far left. You can't pin this on anyone but the regime.

    Pin what? That the courts forced them to allow the Morning After Pill to all girls when they really didn't want to? Did you even read the story?

    Just admit it Don, you were wrong again. I provided plenty of documentation while you just regurgitated talking points. 9/10 for being able to mix in "regime" into one of your posts. :haha7:

    So once again, you're wrong.

    Wrong. The regime's hand was forced by the court. You really could have went with an "activist judges" angle if you had bothered to read the article. Don's wrong. Again. And everyone is pointing and laughing.

    Are you that fucking dense?

    The FDA is part of the executive branch. The FDA didn't want underage kids to buy morning after pills. The court forced them to. You're saying the exact fucking thing I am.

    Joke's on you, as always. You just don't fucking admit it.

    Aah....let the backpedaling begin. Why would you bring up the politics of the FDA when they obviously had nothing to do with it and even opposed it in line with how most conservatives would view it? And why would you say this then?
    A "far left" organization would want to hand out free birth control like candy to girls of all ages. The reason they had to agree to it now is because the court made them. The court is the one that gets this "pinned" on them. Valiant effort though Don.

    TBH, I think Don is just trying to point out the schizophrenic nature of the gov't bureaucracy, where even a liberal administration has agencies pushing conservative agendas.

    Anytime someone says "I love it", I think of the "Mr. Tarkanian" sketch on SNL when one of Mr. Tarkanian's (Will Farrell) employees runs in with a trident and challenges him to a fight.

    Whatever. At least the court gets one right every once in a while.

    The only part I am confused with is how they make you have a script for every legal drug you take but not this one. I know more than anyone having sold this particular drug that it is a timing thing for taking it but how do they decide what you need a script for and what you dont need one for? Why need a script for birth control then? Well as long as they dont make it free like they will be doing with birth control then the cost should be some sort of deterrent to continuously taking plan b.

    PLENTY of drugs come off script and go over the counter. It happens all the time. My allergy pills and my stomach acid pills were both formerly prescription pills that I can now buy by the bucketload at Costco.

    I'm not sure of the exact rules, but if a drug has a long track records of proven safety and mild effects and/or side effects, it will eventually go over-the-counter.

    And birth control pills have one of the longest safety track record of just about any pharmaceutical on the planet.

    'Because Jesus' is the only thing keeping birth control pills from going over-the-counter in the US.

    I always thought those that eventually go over the counter are less potent and not the real deal. It makes sense if what you say is true.
