Women Are Too Stupid for Plan B, Obviously

By | December 7, 2011

 

Unfortunately, today Plan B was shot down as being available to women of all ages without a prescription. Of course, our government had good reason for not allowing it.

“We could not anticipate, or prevent extreme promiscuous behaviors such as the medication taking on an ‘urban legend’ status that would lead adolescents to form sex-based cults centered around the use of Plan B.”
-Dr. Janet Woodcock, Director, Center for Drug Evaluation and Research

I don’t care what  politically correct reason the FDA plans to release for not allowing women to be in control of their bodies, the above statement from 2006 will always be the heart of the matter.  Women are too stupid to make their own decisions. And nothing will ever be done to give them the education or power to control their lives while policy leaders prefer to chase after the elusive “traditional family values” dream. To which I say, you know why things changed? BECAUSE THEY SUCKED.

The message that the FDA has sent out today is
-Sex should have consequences, always.
-A woman’s potential as a broodmare outweighs her potential as an individual.
-Women should be passive in their sexual roles.

So three cheers for the FDA, for allowing women to continued to be denied autonomy! Let’s hope that women who are raped and assaulted are over the age of 17 and live in an area where a pharmacist won’t deny them medication based on their personal religious beliefs.

Do you feel there should be age restrictions on emergency contraception?

I don’t think it would be unreasonable to require informing (see: not asking permission of) the parents if the patient is 14 or under, or something. But other than that, I don’t think there should be age restrictions. Say you have a 12 year old rape victim who fears becoming pregnant. It would seem an incredible disservice to her to further allow her no control of her body.

Oh also, in your research, did you come across an email address for “comments or questions” or whatever where we may send angry protesting emails? I enjoy doing that.

If girls taking Plan B aren’t telling their parents, they usually have a damn good reason. Children aren’t property, and parents don’t have the right to police their bodies. I’m parenting towards an open relationship with my daughter, but nothing can guarantee it. I fully support EC being made available to women without age restrictions and/or parental notification.
