FDA sidesteps Planned Parenthood & Parental consent approves Plan B One-Step for girls 15 & older w/out prescription.
U.S. regulators on Tuesday lowered the age limit for Plan B One-Step emergency contraception, approving it for sale to girls as young as 15 and agreeing it will be available without a prescription and on store shelves instead of behind pharmacy counters, Food and Drug Administration officials announced.
The move, which grants an amended application by drugmaker Teva Women's Health Inc., is a separate action from a federal judge's ruling earlier this month that ordered the FDA to make the so-called "morning after pill" available to girls and women of all reproductive ages. It comes just days before U.S. District Court Judge Edward Korman's decision is set to take effect. - Vitals
Birth control death plan!
STERILIZATION IS NOT BIRTH CONTROL, BUT THE END OF ALL POSSIBILITY TO BEAR CHILDREN.
The example of the clinic in Fauquier County, Virginia, where poor and helpless Black mothers are pressured into accepting sterilization, is certainly not confined to that clinic alone.
It would be better to do as many African and Asian husbands and wives have done, to take care of these matters yourselves rather than rely on such treachery and deceitful counsel.
I say beware of being trapped into the kind of disgraceful birth control laws now aimed almost exclusively at poor, helpless Black peoples who have no one to rely on.
