Plan B, an abortion-inducing drug is now being sold over the counter at major drugstore chains: CVS, RIte Aid, and Walgreens.  The pill hit the shelves in July and can be bought by anybody of any age with out a prescription just like aspirin or vitamins.

 

The United States District Court ordered the FDA to comply with its April 5, 2013 ruling to make the emergency contraceptive available over the counter without any age or point-of-sale restrictions of any kind.

 

 

According to CNSNews.com, spokespersons for CVS, Rite Aid and Walgreens have put policies in place that allow employees to refrain from selling Plan B if they have a moral objection to selling a drug that can induce abortion.

 

The primary objective of the Plan B drug is to abort a human life by preventing the embryo from implanting in the mother’s uterus.  Plan B’s package contains the following text:

“This product works mainly by preventing ovulation (egg release). It may also prevent fertilization of a released egg (joining of sperm and egg) or attachment of a fertilized egg to the uterus (implantation).” 
 

Do you think Plan B should be available to anybody?
