Obama is trying to get Republicans to oppose his opposition to the morning after pill.  Tomorrow we'll see Cantor arguing that the pill needs to be given away to all girls at school.

"Social conservatives were outraged by the FDA's move to lower the age limits for Plan B - as well as the possibility that Korman's ruling might take effect and lift age restrictions altogether."

Social conservatives are idiotic busy bodies.

It is probably because allowing 11 year olds to buy it to avoid getting pregnant will be spun as "Obama is okay with 11 year olds having sex"

Oh great, thanks Obama.

Now we're going to have 10 year olds addicted to recreational abortions.

Just what we need........both sides intruding on a woman's reproductive rights.  This should be a decision made between a woman and her physician.  The FDA made a step in the right direction yesterday, and now the Justice Dept wants to reverse that.  Women, especially teenagers, need better access to birth control.  Some of these politicians should step foot in my clinic once in a while and see the number of teenagers who end up pregnant.

What the hell does he care what those assclowns say?  He's not running for reelection.

If he were to resign, all the republicans in congress would say he was just taking the coward's way out.

If he were to shoot himself, they would complain he used the wrong caliber gun, or make some shiatty passive aggressive comment about gun control.

Uh dude, the court decision is that young girls of any age don't NEED to see a physician, or even speak to a pharmacist, to buy the morning after pill.  I'm all for "a woman's health is hers and her doctor's concern only" but that's not what this is about.

At the same time, I really don't think we should be giving out hormonal birth control anything without even a consult with the pharmacist, but I do understand how young girls might be too intimidated to ask.

The only question is whether it is safe or not. Unless you are a gynocologist, shut up on the matter.

My understanding is that it's safe to use as indicated.  We're not considering the use case where girls who can't get access to the pill attempt to use "Plan B" as a regular birth control?

"We are deeply disappointed that just days after President Obama proclaimed his commitment to women's reproductive rights, his administration has decided once again to deprive women of their right to obtain emergency contraception without unjustified and burdensome restrictions," said Nancy Northup, president of the Center for Reproductive Rights, which filed the lawsuit that prompted Korman's ruling.

I think we can officially add 'Obama' to the list of people stubbornly standing in the way of the Obama Administration.  What a useless twat he's turned out to be.

Birth control and sex hormone treatments are among the safest drugs ever produced. Waaaay safer than aspirin, acetaminophen, robitussin, etc. Should teens have to consult a doc or pharmacist to take those?

cman: Why is the Obama administration fighting this?



Because they have to.  It's the first time a court has reversed a decision by the FDA with regard to how a medication is prescribed.  It sets a precedent for the courts to decide how drugs are approved.Albeit, the FDA really screwed this up by letting politics get in the way of the approval process of Plan B.I guess no one at the FDA thought through the consequences when they made that decision.

Lost Thought 00: 100% of the blame goes to Obama for this


I genuinely have no idea why he's pursuing this. Obama cannot be so knuckledraggingly stupid that he thinks GOPers will lend him support because he makes birth control harder to get. (Same as with the ramped up deportations and cannabis prosecutions.)

This is like watching your favorite team make some boneheaded play and cost themselves the game.  I don't know what the heck he's thinking with this.  He could singlehandedly reduce unemployment to 4%, increase middle class wealth, and bring peace and secular stability to the Middle East and Republicans still wouldn't have the decency to piss on his leg if it was on fire.  I don't know what his thought process is behind this one.  I'm really disappointed.

Plan-B is priced at about $40. How many teenagers do you think can afford Plan-B but can't get regular birth control? Even if that were an issue, it's more of an argument to make regular birth control more accessible.

/plan-b: most shoplifted product of all time

He did this because  the judge undermined the rulemaking of his administration and that cannot stand.  It is pure authoritarianism bleeding through.

Here's what I don't get.  The conservatives rail against welfare, but then they rail against systems that would limit the number of children being placed in the welfare system (contraception, abortion.)

It doesn't make sense.

At least with contraception, there's no ethical concerns over killing a developed fetus (at best, the morning after pill stops a fetus that's barely even began division?)

It only leads to fewer unwanted children on the welfare system.  People can ramble about abstinence all they want, but in practicality, contraception works much better than abstinence.

And yeah, I don't understand Obama's gameplan here.

Has the FRC ever been right about anything? Certainly nothing is coming to mind. Their spokesperson must be the spiritual love child of Michelle Bachmann and Wayne La Pierre.

1. Administration makes a decision
2. Judge rules to override that decision
3. Administration appeals ruling to return to original policy

I'm pretty sure this is handled by a reasonably simple shell script running on a server under someone's desk. No need to get all "Obama is teh authoritarianz" about it. The administration made their policy based on what they probably think is sound reasoning and don't want to see it overridden by one guy with an ax to grind.

It's part of the prosperity gospel.  Conservatives think that people are poor because of their sinful/bad decisions and lack of work ethic, and thus they SHOULDN'T thrive or be helped, because to help them would be to reward such immoral behavior.  Basically: "See honey, see that single mom working a dead end job without health insurance? Guess she should've KEPT HER LEGS SHUT!"

2013-05-02 09:07:54 AM  
This isn't surprising; as someone noted, having the courts decides what is and is not a controlled prescription drug sets a risky precedent for the government in general and the FDA in particular.

The Obama administration, though, ought to be fully vilified for allowing the FDA to make the original choice as a political consideration and not a health consideration. That's where he shiat the bed on this subject and that is where he should have originally been held accountable for the bad policy and bad decision. The FDA should be making decisions based on scientific evidence and not politics.
