Today George Bush has decided to trump science again in favor of the right wing religious zealots who keep saying that Plan B causes abortions. Read the Washington Post article and clearly you'll find that even the media thinks this medical and science issue has turned into another crusade for the ultra-right wing of the Republican Party.
The zealots are equating the Plan B to RU-486! Are these zealots mad? I can understand anti-abortion radicals going against RU-486 but Plan B is not the same. The science is different, the chemistry is not the same and Plan B does not even remotely come close to affecting a fertilized egg. Plan B prevents the fertilization of an egg.
Send email to the White House, congresspeople and senators and ask them to tell the FDA to approve Plan B as an over-the-counter drug and support BitchPhD's campaign to get the drug approved as an over-the-counter item not an across-the-counter drug.
This campaign is critically important because the FDA will come up with a final ruling in the next few weeks.
Other bloggers who support this campaign include:
Go ahead and go to the Bitch PhD's GoodStorm store and buy BitchPhD's Plan B shirt!
Here's my favorite design.
Also if you're woman who needs emergency contraception, go to the Emergency Contraception Website.
Plan B is better than being sorry for a pregnancy you do not want.
Science over politics!!!
