Don't worry, there are plenty of other legal ways to protect the world from having to deal with your brown baby.

oh shiat fake pills?!? That's evil.
 
2014-04-21 01:27:34 PM  
Makes sense; they're *expensive*.  Around $50-$60 for two pills. Of course some scumbag will take advantage of people who can't afford them.

Those counterfeit pills wouldn't lead to big problems if those Slutty McSluts would just keep their legs crossed instead of sleeping with everybody they meet that has a penis, amirite?

Do they at least dissolve quicker in an alcohol based beverage?

Counterfeit morning after pills lead to falling down a flight of stairs

Brought to you by the pro life organization.

/Also try our "Sieve" brand perforated condoms, and our "Knee Clencher" brand aspirin!

Directions:  Take two with water and a punch to the stomach.
 
2014-04-21 04:03:20 PM  
And by big problems they mean some pharm company actually has to compete on the open market!
 
2014-04-21 04:04:30 PM  
Just take 8 aspirin at once or a teaspoon of draino diluted in a shot glass of vinegar that will surely end the pregnancy. That's what I heard on the quad in JR. High anyway.

But then you wouldn't be killing your child, so it's not all bad news.

A lot less than a hospital bill. Or raising a child, for that matter.

I knew a chick who tried to overdose by taking a bottle of morning after pills.

She traveled back in time 6 months.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: oh shiat fake pills?!? That's evil.


It becomes even worse when they're drugs that resistance can develop to--not only do the victims not get cured but the drug can lose effectiveness.

"One type of pill simply contained an antibiotic that can cause rashes and even life-threatening skin conditions in people who are allergic to it, but does nothing to prevent unwanted pregnancies"

Not so fast there, Joe...that sounds like a very effective way to prevent pregnancy.

Too bad they weren't around when you were conceived.
But have you considered suicide? Better late than never :)

I have had three abortions, but never killed a single child. How.Can.That.Be?

And worse yet when someone dies because a life-saving drug is fake. I recall a story a while back about fake chemo drugs.

It increases the difficulty level for sure, but if at first you don't succeed...

No one likes a quitter.

This younger generation. They've got it easy.

Back in my day, we didn't have all these miracle drugs. When we wanted to kill a baby, we had to go to somebody who failed as a regular doctor and pay him to tear it into little pieces and then lay it out like some sort of grisly jigsaw puzzle to make sure he got it all out.

Agreed. I was happy to hand it over after New Years Eve with non-vasectomy boyfriend and bad decisions.....

But I *had* the money.

If I didn't? I can see how people would look for a cheaper alternative.  Scumbags will take advantage of ANYTHING.

Dunno, George. Quite a mystery. Unlike the settled science of when a human life begins.

Next up: Homosexuality - acquired disorder, or birth defect?

Troll mode on, troll mode off, doesn't really matter. I have yet to come across the farker who will say, "My views on <topic x> have changed after a cogent argument put forth in a Fark thread."

Seriously now, wouldn't all that energy wasted here on Fark, be better spent by bottling it for use in recharging solar batteries?
I think the science is settled.

When you manage to breed versions of TB or malaria that are immune to *ALL* the drugs out there you could kill millions.

Both of the diseases I named were major killers before there was a treatment.  If all the drugs become ineffective (and that's a serious threat with those two) we will be pretty much back to the old days.
