Government Health Care Incompetence on Display (Again)

Washington State has been persecuting  Stormans, a family owned pharmacy business, whose employees oppose dispensing the morning after pill on the grounds that it can kill humans early in development.  The U.S. Supreme Court rejected a hearing of their case, leaving them with the option of complying with Washington’s coercive, totalitarian stance towards those who try to practice health care, or run a business in accordance with their consciences, or losing their livelihood.

Since 2011, when the research was published showing that Plan B doesn’t work for average sized American women (due to their size), more states have been trying to coerce the dispensing of this bogus drug. This underscores government incompetence in the field of health care. When Plan B does work, it can operate by post fertilization mechanisms – killing the early embryo, and killing is killing, ‘no matter how small’. Research shows that it doesn’t work to delay or stop ovulation during the women’s most fertile day of the cycle, (after the luteal peak). Yes, if you’re small enough for Plan B (levonorgestrel)  to work, it can be an embryo killer (abortive).

Silver lining: The supremes at least didn’t rule that pharmacists in all 50 states have to dispense Plan B, which could have happened with this nutty court.  The Stormans could close down and bring up a business elsewhere, if they haven’t already been drained of the financial means to do so, by the onerous, and unjust state.   Unfortunately the state of Illinois, as well as the  federal government are currently  attempting to legislate that pharmacists must practice incompetently with respect to the dispensing of birth control to patients.

Here’s a related commentary, as well as the research pinpointing why Plan B is such a huge fail in America.

Sen Cory Booker Puts Medical Incompetence on Display With Bill to Force Pharmacists to Dispense Birth Control

Senate Bill 2960 has been introduced to the 114th Congress by Sen Cory Booker, (D) New Jersey, to force pharmacists to dispense all drugs and devices approved by the FDA to “prevent pregnancy”.   Many of these drugs work by multiple mechanisms, and a section of the bill forbids  informing patients of the possible abortive mechanisms, labeling this as deceptive.  Another section of the bill invites patients to sue the pharmacist who does not give them birth control.   Clinical reasons for refusing to dispense are supposedly allowed, but pharmacists will need to be prepared to  pay lawyers, court costs,  fines, and argue these reasons out in a courtroom.  A desire to avoid dispensing drugs which can act by abortive mechanisms, is not considered a valid reason for refusing to dispense birth control.

The morning after pills are addressed in this bill as drugs which must be dispensed, although they are ineffective in half of American women, who are too big for the dose to work, and poorly effective in additional portions of the female population. If they do stop pregnancy, this is more likely to be accomplished by mechanisms which occur after fertilization than beforehand.

Interestingly,  Sen. Booker’s bill seems to allow  that if a pharmacy does not stock any birth control in the normal course of business, it is not required to distribute the drugs.  Conversely, if your pharmacy has some birth control pills, you would be expected to dispense these AND the fairly useless, morning after pills.

Lawsuits will abound if this bill passes, as its medical and regulatory basis is very poor, its constitutional basis is absent, and it leaves pharmacists liable to legal repercussions, even if they adhere to the letter of the law.  Displaying  medical and legal incompetence along with Cory Booker are Senators Baldwin, Blumenthal, Boxer, Brown, Feinstein, Franken, Gillibrand, Hirono, Kaine, Markey, Menendez, Merkley, Murray, Sanders, Shaheen, Warren, Whitehouse, and Wyden.

Pharmacists, check out S. 2960, and see if you think it’s time to leave retail pharmacy to the robots.

NYT Shock: ISIS Using Birth Control and Abortion to Maintain Sex Slave Supply

The shock is that the New York Times would publish the fact that ISIS is using birth control and abortion to maintain their sex slaves in a rape-able state.  It seems that the cultural upsurge of anti-rape sentiment (particularly among younger people) has overcome even the left’s love of abortion!

Why does it take 100 years for leftists to admit what we knew all along?  Birth control and abortion have always been used to keep women as sex toys which are capable of maintaining a comfortable temperature and texture.  Through natural means, women could have much more effectively promoted themselves as valued member of society and advanced their own self determination.

History has been made.  The New York Times has admitted the obvious.

Both domestically and abroad, abortion and birth control have been used to keep women as a permanent underclass at best, and tortured sex slaves at worst.   ISIS has driven the point home in a way so graphic that the most hardened, cynical,  leftist media venue  is unable to ignore it.

The next step is for the the NYT to admit the main reason why the regime is importing all of those children without their parents.

(The New York TImes article, by Rukmini Callimachi, appears in print 3-13-16 in their New York Edition, as ISIS’ System of Rape Relies on Birth Control and is also found online.)

Milo Yiannopoulos Really Hates the Pill

Milo Yiannopoulos of Breitbart.com Unloads on the Pill.

This is one of the more interesting points of view regarding the effects of birth control hormones on society.

Why is Ben Carson’s Pro-Life Stance Confused? What About Our Own?

The inconsistencies in Ben Carson’s pro-life views have been a fairly hot topic in the alternative news.  Surely leftists (including the republican establishment)  will use this to stick a fork into his candidacy.

The truth is that virtually all pro-life people have inconsistencies in their views.  We have grown up in a culture which has a very utilitarian view towards human life, so that becoming respectful of life requires a good deal of research, thought and energy.  Becoming more consistently pro-life is a process.  Ben Carson, a neurosurgeon, probably ignored reproductive medicine and developmental biology most of the time.

Medicine has been impeded by the birth control and abortion scam since the beginning of time.  Before the birth control hormones and abortion pills, herbs and various poisons were used.

False claims touting the reliability of these modalities encouraged alterations in people’s sex behaviors, to the extent that they thought they could separate sex and reproduction. Societies have been bamboozled by a myriad of false medical claims,  Many of these affected mainstream medical practice in ways that would astonish you.  Recent retractions of prior medical dogma have changed the way hypertension is treated, and which dietary modifications are needed for weight loss or cardiovascular health.  Likewise, the birth control practices have been codified and entrenched based upon claims and assumptions which are simply not true.  None of the birth control methods and drugs work as well as touted in actual use.  Many, especially morning after pills, have become an under dose as the average size of women has grown larger.  To alter the dose would bring huge research and regulatory costs to the manufacturer.  It’s cheaper to bring a me-too or a generic drug  to market.

Chemical birth control has become an abortion selling scam, and a war on women conducted for profit.  People need to face the fact that reproductive activity causes babies.

Those who see human life as the most valuable thing will move further to the pro-life side as they do research and are forced to think about the issue harder.   Politicians should not necessarily be excoriated as they think out loud about being pro-life. Many politicians who claimed to be pro-life have not lived up to their promises.  We should be looking at the candidates who have not been bought out by special interests, and whose personal honor is linked to keeping their word.  If those kinds of candidates pledge specific pro-life actions, (such as de-funding abortion sellers, and protecting pro-life health care, religious and  business practice.) maybe they are the ones to support.  With that kind of help the grass roots pro-lifers could defeat the abortion disease.

Bowl of Hygeia Award Goes to Pro-Life Pharmacist

Louisiana Pharmacist’s Association nominated Lloyd DuPlantis for the Bowl of Hygeia award given out by the American Pharmacist’s Association for outstanding community service, and so he is appropriately recognized this 2015 year.

Lloyd DuPlantis

Lloyd DuPlantis

Yes, this longstanding pro-life pharmacist, author and philanthropist, does it all.  In addition to his pharmacy practice, family life, writing, and a number of local and international charitable outreaches, he’s an ordained Catholic Deacon.

Pharmer sez: if you met Lloyd, you would never forget him, and is glad that her eldest offspring also had that opportunity before he headed off into healthcare.

Would you like to add health IQ points ???   Read Lloyd’s Remedies and his book on The Pill: America’s Sacred Cow, (no offense to bovines).

Planned Parenthood whines about harassment from Pro-lifers

Call a WAAAAAMBULANCE!

Call a WAAAAAMBULANCE!

Your friendly Pharmer is highly amused that Planned Parenthood management is so upset by the investigative work of the Center for Medical Progress. Today’s second video, featuring the “less crunchy” Dr. Mary Gatter, has PP’s top brass in a tailspin. They’re crying foul, and are claiming that pro-lifers have been attacking them in an effort to shut down their killing business.

Let the public be reminded that Planned Parenthood has been harassing pharmacists for 15 years or more, in an attempt to force the pro-lifers to dispense abortifacient drugs, with their efforts leading to success in a number of states. In fact, Planned Parenthood of Southwestern Ohio intervened directly in the employment lawsuit between this pharmacist and K Mart way back in 2001, in order to delay  the inevitable outcome.

Planned Parenthood has been attacking pro-life  health care professionals and Crisis Pregnancy Centers for decades.  Is there any reason that people should feel sympathy for the nation’s top abortion conglomerate, which kills babies and sells their body parts?

Free IUDs for School Kids in Washington State.

From Lifenews comes the announcement that Seattle school kids, from sixth grade up, can have an IUD or other form of long term birth control implanted without parental consent.  Featured in the articles is (culturally diverse)  Chief Sealth International High School, which began participating in this effort in 2010, but the program has since spread to other schools.
The chance of a life threatening adverse event from a IUD being caught in time is drastically reduced when  a child  is afraid to tell her parents that she has had one implanted by the government  “Take Charge” (of your kids) program. Naturally it has planned parenthood written all over it.
It seems that Washington state has perceived an unethical “need” to control its minority populations.  It has been doing so in an unethical way, by targeting free birth control in its minority urban neighborhoods.  This is the natural consequence of allowing big government to coalesce.
This state provided birth control plan further takes matters out of the hands of parents.

What does Hormonal Birth Control Do to the Brain?

A pair of Austrian scientists, Belinda Pletzer and Hubert Kerschbaum have published a provocative article in Frontiers of Neuroscience, asking for more research on the effects of hormonal birth control on the brain.  Of particular interest are the social and behavioral  effects of these hormones when used in younger patients whose brains are still undergoing major development and maturation.

The authors review some studies of feminizing or masculinizing hormone effects upon mood, verbal skills, spatial reasoning, behavior and mate selection,  which collectively could have profound effects on social structures in the long term.  They suggest that any behavioral studies be controlled for the use of hormones by study subjects.  Changes in brain structure caused by the various types of estrogens and progestins used as birth control, vary with the the degree of androgenicity or estrogenicity, and with duration of usage.  Changes in brain development in younger BC users may be more profound, with some expected to be irreversible.

Illegal, Unaccompanied, Underage Immigrants Will be Given Abortions by HHS

…….after they are raped, and without their parents permission or knowledge.  

One could conclude that the left imported these children into the U.S. for sexual reasons, as well as to serve as future Democrats.

The HHS will also be offering Plan B  (the BC drug which is known to have very poor efficacy). 

This constitutes a federal program to abuse children sexually, get them pregnant, and kill their babies prior to birth.  It sounds like a plan to subsidize Planned Parenthood.

In this manner, the left disrespects and abuses whole populations of people, and treats them as livestock.
