RE: ?Morning After Pill?
DATE: August 30, 2005

The FDA recently asked for public comment about approving the ?morning after pill? as an over-the-counter drug.

I am opposed to making the ?morning after pill? an over-the-counter drug.

The ?morning after pill? is an abortifacient. Any method that allows fertilization but prevents implantation is abortifacient. It is not ?birth control? or ?emergency contraception? or ?preventing pregnancy.? It is certainly not going to limit abortions; it works by causing abortion at the earliest stage of human life.

The FDA called it a ?safe? drug; it is certainly not safe for the baby destroyed by it! Thou shalt not kill.

Not only should the ?morning after pill? not be approved for over-the-counter sales; it ought not to be approved or made available for any use. Its approval as a prescription drug ought to be rescinded.
