The FDA: business as usual

HT: The Curt Jester

From an article by Jill Stanek:

So what if minor girls can't buy emergency contraceptives without a prescription?

Their rapists can.

When last week the FDA authorized over-the-counter access of ECs to women 18 and older, it also authorized over-the-counter access to men 18 and older.

Why would men buy ECs?

Ask them in Thailand, where ECs have been marketed for 20 years. In Thailand, ECs are advertised in men's magazines....

Read the whole article here.

Oh... ugh... this is sick. What I don't get it what woman would take an unknown pill someone handed her? Seems like a scary practice overall!
