Because Plan B is not an abortion!

The State of Washington Board of Pharmacy voted today that pharmacists cannot refuse to fill Plan B scripts. Well, yes they can, they can refer you to a coworker. But they cannot prevent you from getting your script.

Down in the seventh paragraph of the Times article, it says that Plan B "... has no effect on women who are already pregnant." Do you know what that means? It means that PLAN B IS NOT AN ABORTION.

It is emergency contraception that prevents ovulation. You take it the day after unprotected sex to make sure your ovum doesn't make its debut in a sperm-rich environment.

So let's all stop perpetuating the lie that Plan B is a chemical abortion, shall we? Thanks.

Yep, the gov't in Olympia is making policy about women's reproductive health. Also in the news, the Iraqi parliament and a bridge across the Tigris were both hit by suicide bombers. Also, the White House is pretending they didn't have incriminating emails deleted, the idiots, because they are either too stupid to keep policy and politics separate, or they thought they could get away with it.

Lots of important news, children. Do we care? No, we're distracted by Imus.

Oh, by the way, gas is $3.20 a gallon now.
