How Many Deaths Will It Take?

The FDA has made a very big mistake in approving the Morning After Abortion pill for sale Over-the-Counter. For one, there is no way to ensure that only 18 year olds and above will get it, so that provision is completely insane.

However, that isn't the worst part of this decision. So far at least 5 deaths are blamed on the pill. How many more deaths will it take before it will be removed from the market??? I'm very disappointed in the President that he didn't stop this in it's tracks. Hopefully, Congress will remedy it soon.

"gives you an additional, convenient level of protection from unwanted pregnancy"

That quote in the announcement floors me. So, the chance of dying is not as bad as an unwanted pregnancy.

Shane, it's not easy to be sleazy, society makes it so dificult to sleep around, this will help make it easier. I mean heck, who wants there to be consequences for their actions? Really, risking death is nothing if you get to sex it up as much as you want!!

"gives you an additional, convenient level of protection from unwanted pregnancy" - no in fact that is not what this drug does. The implication in this statemenet is that it somehow provides a late barrier to fertilization when in fact it does not do this.

Fertilization occurs if both egg and sperm are present and the action of this drug is to prevent the normal implantation process. It is this process which has been the fundamental basis for the later deaths from bleeding or infection.

The liberal left seek to create an new class of dependent voters who wish to protect their reliance on this drug and their irresponsible life style. These politicos have no regard for the fact that this is going to increase STD including AIDS. No matter - no care - gotta get those votes.

Statistics have shown that the greatest support FOR abortion is among those above 50 and the least amount of support is among those from teens to 29. Hence the BIG LIE as to what this drug represents.

Noted that you said you were coming home on another blog so I imagine this means that you were not able to find another position in Kuwait - sorry for the change of plans, since this was not apparantly what you had hoped for. Nice Blog!

FI...unfortunately that is there attitude.

Five deaths? I can understand your other points (even if I disagree with most of them), but if we pulled every drug that has caused five deaths then we wouldn't even have Tylenol anymore.

As for the morning-after pill, I support its increased availability. Combined with education regarding its use (and not just highlighting its negative effects, which are equivalent to most other medications), I think we could help stem the tide of unwanted children--and, by extension, all the governmental burdens that come with them.

I wasn't happy about this either!

As do most sexually active men, in fact they support abortion more than women do. What liberal metro guy wouldn't? It's a pass for consequence-free casual sex - essentially making guys the primary beneficiaries of abortion.

Oh yeah, Roe V Wade has done wonders stemming the tide of unwanted children. There is no method or pill that will EVER stop the existance of unwanted children - outside of abstinence. Don't fool yourself into thinking a pill will make this go away - it is a hell of lot more complicated than you can imagine.

Ian, it is a nice fantasy with no basis in reality.

Ian...that is 5 deaths in 5 years...find any other drug that kills a person a year that is on the market and let me know. Don't give me these random tylenol examples that don't even come close to comparing. Also, this is 5 that we know of. How many more might have died and they had no idea she took the pill.

However, that isn't even the worst part of your comment. The audacity to say any child is comparable to an government burden is outrageous and downright sad. To be so casual about just not caring about the consequences of sex as if it turns into something you don't want, a child, you can just so easily toss it aside like any old piece of trash floors me. If having a child would be such a tremendous burden then DON'T HAVE SEX!!!

Skye...thanks for the drop in...well said!

If I understand you, CT, anything that causes death should be stopped immediately.

Like maybe a certain war in a certain country?

I know, I know...Unborn children are "innocent," blah blah blah...But so were the tens of thousands of Iraqi citizens that have died in the last three years.

Cajun Tiger said...

Southpaw...the falacy in your logic is that you are assuming that if the US were to leave, the deaths would stop.

That's where you are severly mistaken. It would get way worse for those innocent Iraqis you pretend to care so much about, not to mention the rest of the world as the terrorist would have a new base of operation to attack the world.

The leftist southpaw said...

no, my point is the opposite- the deaths did not start until the U.S. arrived.

You evade the basis of my question- how can you be right to LIFE and for a WAR?

Ron said...

Southpaw, there you go again! Seems like every time you begin to lose ground on a topic you revert back to the Iraq War. Only you would take a debate on abortion and turn it around to make it a debate on the Iraq war, which has absolutely NOTHING to do with unwanted pregnancies.

skye said...

Really, southpaw - you truly believe this to be fact? Then can you explain what is actually buried in these graves?
Discarded TonkaToys, perhaps?

Why is there this persistant belief that Iraq was a land of rainbows and happiness under the watchful gaze of 'papa saddam'? This was a nation were card-carrying professional rapists were government employees and wood chippers were used in creatively gruesome ways.

While this was going on in the peaceful nation of Iraq, people like southpaw were not out in the streets protesting the human rights violations and demanding the impeachment of saddam -Oh hell No!

Prior to 9/11, I doubt anyone of southpaw's political strip could point out Iraq on a map.

Southpaw...besides the excellent points Ron and Skye noted...let's also not forget the $10-25K sent to the family members of Palenstinian homicide bombers who killed innocent Israelis. Let's not forget that Zarqawi had free passage in Iraq before 9-11. Let's not forget that more and more evidence is coming out that top Iraqi officials had several meetings with top Al Qaida officials.

Your comments are appauling because they put the US military on the same moral ground as the murderous thugs who TARGET innocent Iraqis. While any innocent death is regretable, ones caused by the US are accidental as every possible effort is taken to avoid civilian deaths. Unlike abortionist and terrorists who both purposely kill and TARGET innocent human beings.
