Planned Parenthood: Adapted to the Sebelius Plan B Decision

Does Planned Parenthood Secretly Support the Plan B Decision? | LifeNews.com.

There is conjecture that Planned Parenthood might not have minded Kathleen Sebelius’ decision not to permit the sale of Plan B out on store shelves.

In reality, Planned Parenthood is trying to increase its market share of the surgical and chemical abortion businesses.   Selling Plan B One-Step out on the store shelves everywhere would accomplish this.

Plan B is not very effective.  If girls and women are using it more, Planned Parenthood would sell more abortions.  So they probably preferred that decision over the opposite.

There is a reason why Planned Parenthood did not have such an extreme shrieking response as some other abortophilic  groups.   It was already a prime distributor of this relatively INeffective birth control  drug, and this business will continue.   The profit margin is huge and the relative liability risk is small.   Planned Parenthood  will not gain the increased abortion business which was expected if Plan B  had been made extremely easy to buy or steal,  but that is offset by the fact that they will remain a front running distributor.

It is very possible that Sebelius would change her mind regarding Plan B if Obama is reelected in 2012.   Holding this out to Planned Parenthood might induce them to continue forking over the campaign support.

    Pardon my French, but your post is a crock of sh*t.

    IMO, Planned Parenthood is in the "business" of providing women with birth control and related health information so that women can PLAN when they choose to become a mother, if and when they so choose.

    I am always perplexed at the so-called "Pro-Life" community. If they REALLY wanted to decrease the number of unplanned pregnancies and abortions, they should be hailing Plan B from the rooftops, which prevents a pregnancy from occurring. Instead, they would rather see a young girl punished and shamed for having s.e.x. no matter if she was a victim of rape, incest, or just plain naive and unskilled in how to say no. They would rather a girl be forced to carry a pregnancy to term, interrupting her education, or in most cases ending her education entirely. I don't call that "pro-life", I call it ruthless and totalitarian misogyny.

  2. You can google for yourself: Birth control proponent and researcher Anna Glasier has concluded from her studies that increasing the availability of Plan B is not associated with decreased demand for abortion.

    A number of the available studies show marked increase. These are linked a number of times on this blog already.

    Plan B is not very effective as birth control.

    The claim that it is marketed as a means to reduce abortions is false, because of its frequently interceptive mechanism, and because it does not reduce overall demand for abortions.

    What concerns planned parenthood most, is the ability for males to more easily buy or steal the drug, which is the main purpose for putting it out on the store shelves. This "market segment" would bring about the biggest boost to abortion sales.

  3. Klan Barrenhood has only one goal as obviously shown with the exit of folks like Abby Johnson: sell, sell, sell abortions, surgical and chemical. Plan B and ella will be $0 copay under ObamaCare so wominfolk can have more chemical abortions, paid for by sucker taxpayers. That would actually work better for their business and pop control model than paying cash out of pocket. They also get to continue protecting child and sex abusers.

  4. The success of the students and all teachers are very important and necessary. If the students have to be sustained and maintained in main stream of the state, the education has to be highest of the quality and standard.
