LETTER TO THE EDITOR: No large sodas, but morning-after pill is OK
Bill Donohue of the Catholic League says that a student in a New York City school cannot be given an aspirin, nor allowed to drink a large soda during lunch, but she can now be given the “morning-after pill,” thanks to U.S. District Court Judge Edward Korman (“Judge strikes down age restrictions on ‘morning-after’ pill,” Web, April 5). Judge Korman ruled that even minors can get the pill over the counter.
So what is the emergency this contraception would be used for? Rape? If rape, why wouldn’t the victim go to the hospital and get checked out for possible venereal diseases? If they wanted the pill, you can bet that the doctor would grant them access to it, right?
With that said, does it not make sense that most females would be using it for birth control and not because of rape or incest? Plan B potentially kills unborn babies and can place women’s health in jeopardy. Plan B is thought by pro-lifers to not only prevent fertilization, but also to prevent implantation. And if implantation does not occur, guess what? You’ve just had an abortion. (By the way, regular birth-control pills are also abortifacients because they have a backup system that prevents implantation.) Plan B is much, much more powerful and dangerous than regular birth-control pills.
