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.

Carly Fiorina Was Accurate, but the Media Lied

A Carly Fiorina PAC put out an ad showing the video to which she referred during the Republican debate.  It clearly demonstrates that the lame-stream media lies, and should be held largely  responsible for the degradation of America.

Jeb Bush Cowers before this Troupe From The Shallow End of the Gene Pool

Dredged up from the muck are Leftist storm troopers of exceptionally low IQ, who have been unable to discern the irony in shouting “Black lives matter!” at a Jeb Bush Town hall, while wearing shirts supporting planned parenthood, the organization which kills 90,000 black people yearly, by means of abortion.
Despite the gurls blatantly obvious lack of intellect, Jeb Bush apparently felt insecure enough to slink away from his town hall meeting in Las Vegas

Not Representing Black Americans

Obama could never have been considered a typical Black American, or even in touch with them.  Despite their steadfast support of the first “Black” president, they certainly have not benefited under his rule.  Income, home ownership, and employment have decreased more among American Blacks than other demographic group. Probably the only major thing he has done to them is supply government funded IUDs and abortions.  He did, however, make a show of pretending that he believed marriage is between a man and a woman while soliciting their votes.

Though the press has sold Obama’s acceptance of gay marriage as an “evolution”, Toledo Municipal Court Judge, C. Allen McConnell, underscores another chasm which exists between Obama and Black Americans.  The Judge has refused to personally officiate same sex marriages based upon his Christian beliefs.   In the past, Obama had played up to the fact that most Blacks regard homosexual activity as sinful, and this is not limited to U.S.A..  Kenya is among other African nations which are having none of Obama’s more recently outed agenda.

One wonders how many people still believe that Obama has undergone “evolution” on this matter, or whether he is like so many other politicians:

GoFundMe Kowtows to Leftist Extremists of “Gaystapo”

While the Shona Banda legal fundraiser remains up (as of 4-28-15) at GoFundMe,  the fundraisers for Sweet Cakes and Barronelle Stutzman have been removed.

Shona Banda’s house was raided by cops, after her son made comments in favor of medical marijuana at his school in Kansas.  Ms. Banda had moved to the state from Colorado where she had legal access to legal weed, said to be for a health condition.  The raid produced some cannabis oil and 2 oz of the weed itself.  Her son has been removed from the home, and felony charges are expected.

GoFundMe has given the excuse that the Sweet Cake’s fundraiser was suspended because they have been formally charged with a heinous crime [of not baking a cake for a same sex wedding].  This does not wash since the fundraiser was to benefit the mom and kids who were not present at the time of refusal.  It is obvious:  GoFundMe will raise legal defense for people found with illegal marijuana in the home, but not for the benefit of the family supported by the Sweet Cakes business, which is charged with not  baking a cake for a same sex wedding.

Businesses will have to decide whether it is in their interest to kowtow to the extremists  of the “Gaystapo”, or continue having wider access to commerce with the general population. Fundraisers and donors are encouraged to use a different venue until GoFundMe regains realistic business priorities.

Same Sex Marriage Anti-Narrative

The NBCI, National Black Church Initiative, is made up of 15 denominations representing 16 million Black Americians.  This group has cut ties with the Presbyterian Church USA  after the latter denomination decided to include same sex unions within its definition of marriage.

Said Rev. Anthony Evans, NBCI president, “There is always redemption in the body of Christ through confession of faith and adhering to Holy Scripture.”  He called on Christians to show ‘tough love’ to the Presbyterian church by ‘refusing to associate with the denomination until it changes its ways’.

On the another front:  businesswoman Courtney Hoffman, who is a lesbian, donated to the Memories Pizza fundraiser, and publicly supported the right of that business not to service same sex weddings.  Though she disagrees with them, she defended their right of self determination, saying that she would not want to forced as a businesswoman to support causes that she did not believe in.

Conservatives should keep in mind that the media charade surrounding the Indiana RFRA is a bogus thing, coming mostly from the leftist democrats.  It’s a tool to make conservative voters lose respect for republican wimps, and stay home from the elections.   The militant/intolerant Gaystapo, so prominently celebrated by the media,  is a relatively small group.

People might better attend to their investments, and carefully reconsider association or investments with  corporations run by those who cooperated with this latest, false media meme.

Indiana Legislature Guts its Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

Dialing the phone number for Governor Mike Pence’s office gives a ‘mailbox full’ message.  So Pharmer wrote another letter asking him to veto SB 50, which guts the RFRA, and is worse than no RFRA at all.

Memories Pizza, up in Walkerton  IN had to close for the time being, due to the leftie plus gaystapo hate and death threats, but have gotten huge love from people donating at Go Fund Me.  The family intends to reopen their pizzeria.

Visit Louder with Crowder to see what happens when  a Muslim Baker is asked to make a cake for a same sex wedding.

Crowder also drives home the very important point that the leftists intend to impose their will on those who believe differently, and leave no room for dissent.

Jonathan Gruber: Killing for Crime Control

Mona Charen has dredged up more Jonathan Gruber sludge, linking him to the Killing for Crime Control thesis made famous in the Freakonomics book and ensuing debate.

Referencing this 1998 article by Jonathan Gruber, et al, Freakonomics author Steven Levitt and colleague, John Donahue argued in a 2002 Quarterly Journal of Economics  article  that the availability of abortion had significant influence in lowering the crime rate.  This later was made available for public consumption in the 2005 Freakonomics chapter on abortion.

Besides connecting Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber with more of his macabre plans for social engineering, this underscores another leftist inconsistency.  Usually these people are arguing to mitigate penalties against established criminals, yet here you see them supporting the idea of aborting babies from groups considered  more likely to become social liabilities.  That’s the same as a death penalty exacted before a crime is even contemplated.

Gruber’s own conclusions from 1998: “Perhaps more importantly, these findings may also have implications for the lifelong prospects of the average child born after legalization. The children not born due to abortion availability would have grown up in adverse living circumstances that other studies have shown may be detrimental to later prospects.”

What other interesting ideas from the mind of Johnathan Gruber have made their way into the intrinsic design of Obamacare?

Wouldn’t Want to Be the Guy Who Reported John Crawford III to 911.

Last summer, cops responded to a 911 call reporting Beaver Creek, Ohio shopper, John Crawford for “Playing With a Gun While Black”.  To be sure,  Crawford was without gun etiquette and safety skills, but he was not threatening his fellow shoppers.  He had picked up an unloaded, air powered, pellet gun in Walmart and had been swinging it in the corner aisle, while talking on a cell phone. Most of the time the rifle is pointed towards the floor. At one point, the muzzle is seen pointing  toward a back wall and shelf of pet food, but not at any other shoppers.

Once readers tour the Walmart video footage, they will admire the folks at Truth About Guns, who essentially got the gist of this story way back in August, before any of this info was available.  John Crawford is mainly a victim of  panicky, anti-gun propagandizing .  It also appears that cops, all juiced up for a crazy shooter, did not give the guy much of a chance to respond appropriately to their presence before he was plugged by two of their bullets.

One 911 caller will be crawling into a hole after the unwarranted death of  22 year old Crawford, as well as the untimely demise of a 37 year old female shopper, who had a heart attack following the ensuing melee.  (Naturally the left wing media is trying to tie the caller to the Tea Party.)

Given the sum total of the story, it’s not a surprise that the family of John Crawford would want to sue somebody.   They would not be able to get much out of the 911 caller who touched off this whole disaster.

Lastly, people need to be exercising gun safety and etiquette along with their gun rights.
