Illinois Can’t Force Pharmacists to Sell Plan B Drug

After more than seven years of litigation, the court ruled former Governor Rod Blagojevich’s April 2005 mandate that all pharmacies and pharmacists sell Plan B (the “morning after pill”) is invalid. Blagojevich argued that pharmacy owners and pharmacists with religious objections should “find another profession” if they did not share his moral views about the drug.

Don’t believe the “experts” who claim “Plan B” emergency contraception doesn’t cause abortions!

According to Chris Kahlenborn, M.D., internist and founder/president of The Polycarp Research Institute:

In her recent article on emergency contraception, Pam Belluck cited authorities who claim that Plan B does not work by preventing implantation (i.e., early abortion). That’s a very disputable claim. The reality is that if Plan B is given close to the time of ovulation, it has little efficacy in preventing ovulation, and any efficacy would likely be due to an abortifacient effect.

This research is supported (ironically) by Dr. Croxatto — an advocate for Plan B — who found that levonorgestrel (Plan B) given within 48 hours of ovulation only definitely stopped ovulation in 12 percent of cases (Croxatto et al, Contraception 2004; 442-450.)

Bottom line:

Plan B works likely at times by causing an early abortion, and the claim that it effectively stops ovulation or fertilization is not supported by the medical literature. Plan B should be labeled what it in fact is: an abortion pill.

Abortion President Obama orders mandatory “Plan B” drug for U.S. military health facilities

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — Late Thursday, the Obama administration issued a new order for the U.S. military requiring all military hospitals and health centers to stock the morning after pill. The Department of Defense will soon begin having military medical facilities stock the Plan B drug, which can sometimes cause an abortion.

The Obama administration’s decision came after the Pentagon’s Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee, an advisory panel, made the recommendation to stock the drug. The PPTC suggested stocking both Plan B and the Next Choice generic of the morning after pill.

The decision is the latest to have President Barack Obama overturning pro-life policies during the Bush administration and follows him forcing Americans to pay for abortions and embryonic stem cell research with their tax dollars.
