Another John Jenkins Fail at Notre Dame

Dr. Gerard Bradley, Professor at Notre Dame’s Law School, has taken down Fr. John  Jenkins for failing to exercise the religious freedom now being respected by the federal government under President Trump.  Jenkins apparently likes to cover those birth control pills for Notre Dame staff and students.   He started out by retaining the entire Obamacare birth control policy, but, under pressure, decided to repudiate the morning after pills, while keeping coverage of what he called ‘contraceptives’.   Read Dr. Bradley’s worthy article HERE.

Fr. Jenkins likely has not enough understanding to know which birth control is abortifacient.  This pharmacist suspects that he really doesn’t care.  Just to clarify for everyone who DOES care:

The levonorgestrel morning after pills don’t work very well, and when they do, they can stop the life of an early embryo.  The (anti-progesterone),  ulipristal acetate, morning after pill  also has abortive mechanism.

Progestin only birth control pills, shots and implants are not very effective at suppressing ovulation, so a significant portion of their mechanism operates after fertilization (kills early embryos).  In addition, as the patients who  use these forms of birth control grow in size, (a side effect),  their ability to stop baby production decreases.

All combination birth control pills, with both estrogen and progestin analogs, can sometimes work after fertilization, possibly to impede tubal transport or implantation, thereby killing early embryos.

When Father Jenkins says yes to birth control other than condoms and diaphragms (which are also too artificial for adherent Catholics),  he is involved in stopping human life, not merely preventing it.

The Catholic Church has been shrinking itself in stature and number by saying “never mind” to so many of us who tried to take the Church’s teachings seriously.  I have found so many other Christian denominations catching on to the natural law that Catholics used to teach. Those groups will be growing, while the likes of Fr. Jenkins run faithful Catholics off.

Thanks to Dr. Gerard Bradley for giving a cogent update and analysis of Fr. Jenkin’s latest failure.

Complaint Portal for Those Suffering Discrimination Based upon Religion or Conscience

Here’s where You Should File a Complaint if you are suffering discrimination based upon your religious or conscientious beliefs. This includes ALL health care professionals who are being pressured to do things (such as killing, maiming, or fraud) which violate their conscience.

Tired of those bogus state and federal morning after pill mandates?

Tired of those State mandates that you have to tell women where to get an abortion?

Though Pharmer focuses on health care professions,  everyone else has First Amendment rights too.  The Trump administration is much friendlier to people of conscience, and is listening.

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.

Winnebago County, IL Health Dept Sued for firing Pro-life Nurse

Nurse Sandra Mendoza has been forced out of her 18 year  position as a pediatric nurse with the Winnebago County Health Dept in Rockford, Illinois.   This situation stemmed from the decision by Dr. Sandra Martell to have all of the nurses trained to refer for abortion and handle distribution of faulty birth control such as Plan B to unsuspecting patients who don’t know how ineffective it is, and that it can have an abortive mechanism if it ever works as planned.  Ms. Mendoza conscientiously refused to enable the killing of unborn humans, and subsequently found herself no longer employed by the health department.   She is bringing suit based upon the Illinois Health Care Right of Conscience Act which prohibits discrimination against health care workers who object to abortion and refuse to promote or participate in that act.

The contact form for the Winnebago County Health Department is linked HERE for your convenience, if you would like to politely address the way that Dr. Sandra Martell chooses to run her department.

This violation of Sandra Mendoza’s civil rights comes prior to the passage of Illinois Senate Bill 1564, which seeks to overturn certain protections of health care workers who have a conscience, and refuse to enable the  killing of  humans.  This bill has not yet been addressed by Governor Bruce Rauner, who can be contacted HERE.

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.

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?

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.

HHS, stop abusing children!

Help the Stormans Family, Pro-life Pharmacists

The Stormans Family  has been battling the coercive leftist abortion supporters for YEARS, regarding their right to refuse to dispense certain types of birth control which have abortive mechanisms of action.  They won their case at home, but are being soaked for legal fees as their First Amendment case is being appealed to the 9th Circuit Court.  Read more about the appeal  at LifeNews.

There’s a Go Fund Me campaign to help out this family, and allow them to stay true to their religious and ethical beliefs as they practice pro-life pharmacy.

Please understand  that the primary drug in question, levonorgestrel, or Plan B One-Step is now an over the counter drug.  The entire environment of practice regarding this drug entity has changed while the Stormans legal battle has been going on.   In addition, it has been established that Plan B is ineffective for American women of average size. ( Learn more at the Chemical Abortion page of this blog.)  The pharmacists who refuse to dispense Plan B have effectively  been protecting these women from being sold a bogus “remedy”.  The point of continued legal persecution of this family is moot.

Your friendly Pharmer is coughing up some $$$ to help the Stormans family, and invites you to do so too

. Read more about the initial case  HERE.

Left is Still Whining that the Right Wants to Ban Birth Control

You can head over to Mother Jones if you want to watch the wailing and gnashing of teeth.  Basically their author, Molly Redden, says that pro-lifers are conflating abortion and birth control, and want to ban both.  It’s been fun to see the left finally admit (after years of being derided for their science illiteracy)  that stopping implantation is a significant mechanism of birth control hormones.

Yours truly dropped the following comment. It’s an opportunity to inform leftists about the Plan B scam, and other problems with birth control hormones.  Maybe it will stir the denizens of the left-cloud  up a bit. You might want to join in the debate.

Unmentioned in this article is Ella (ulipristal acetate) the newly touted morning after pill which takes the place of Plan B, since the latter drug known to be ineffective for average sized American women.  Ella is an analog of mifepristone (RU-486), and of course it shares the the same mechanisms of action.
The  various mechanisms of birth control pills are not new.  The only thing that has changed is that more people know about it, thanks to the coercive actions of employers and governments.  The newer “development” is the religious belief that implantation confers a different status upon the growing human organism.  Killing the human organism prior to implantation, according to this religion, is birth control, and after implantation, the act becomes worthy of the name, “abortion”.
This tired article pushes the meme that women are too incompetent to obtain their own birth control, and that Obama should provide it (with our money).  One amusing fact is that Obama care provides only limited access, and many women are being forced to buy their preferred types of birth control hormones because their Obamacare does not “care” enough.
Meanwhile, women continue to troop through the hospitals with thromboembolic (blood clotting) events and various other untoward side effects of birth control hormones.  They have been very tolerant of life threatening “medical care”, so this is all OK as far as the lefties are concerned.
Some day, women might get tired of routine chemical alterations to their bodies, and learn how to regulate their reproductive potential using natural, safer, more ethical, and more effective means.

Birth Control Mechanisms

Lifesite News has put up a little slide show of images showing how various types of birth control operate. Each image is taken from the pharmacology section of info that the drug manufacturers publish for health care providers. None of this information is new, and if you never heard it from your doctor or CNP………. well……

Part of birth control effectiveness is due to processes that occur AFTER fertilization.

You can learn about some more birth control at the Chemical Abortion page listed above.
