Walgreens Fires Another Pharmacist for Refusing to Sell Plan B

Walgreens: Leave your beliefs at the door.

Remember that Plan B has been found to be ineffective in average sized American women of reproductive age.

The manufacturer of this form oflevonorgestrel in Europe has advised that women who are 165 lbs or more NOT rely on this drug for birth control, because it is not sufficiently effective in women of that size or greater. 

Walgreens has seen fit to fire a pharmacist who refuses to sell an ineffective drug.

It remains that Plan B can operate by post-fertilization mechanisms, in smaller than average American women, and so the ethical sensibilities of the pharmacist, Philip Hall, are also a valid reason to refuse to dispense the drug.

Walgreens has already had to settle lawsuits in Illinois for similar firings.  Firing another pharmacist in Tennessee displays an ardent attachment to an agenda of denying the necessary clinical and ethical autonomy that is required for a pharmacist to practice in a competent manner.

Staying Ahead of the Curve

Your friendly Blogger has a general policy of diverting discretionary expenses, and even some others, away from suppliers and merchandisers who oppose the conservative American lifestyle.  Few people can be 100% successful at this, but it helps to give it a good try.

Six years ago, the Pharmer decided not to send her kid to New York City on a school class trip.  Basically the class trip was a “shopper driven” choice, and the money expended was not commensurate with the educational value.  In addition, the people of NYC had persistently been supporting very leftist politicians and policies which are not tolerant of a conservative lifestyle.  Bloomberg, for example, ordered the medical schools in NYC to train ob-gyn residents to do abortions, took hostile action against crisis pregnancy centers, doled out the ineffective Plan B  to school kids and in general, acted as an intolerant busybody leftist.  There was sufficient reason to avoid sending hard earned, discretionary funds to New York City.

Since then, New York City has elected an even crazier and less competent mayor, and the governor of New York State, Andrew Cuomo, has plainly stated that pro-lifers are not welcome in his state. 

Governor Andrew Cuomo says Right to Life people are not welcome in New York

Pharmer had already understood the general situation, and  will continue to withhold funds as much as possible from both NYC and the state.  It is suggested to the remaining conservatives in New York that they seriously consider emigration.  Yours truly will support refugee and sanctuary programs for genuine, conservative emigrants from New York. These programs are viewed as necessary because New York has a reputation for pursuing  emigrants for taxes.

Update: Radio host Sean Hannity announces that he will leave New York State, in response to Andrew Cuomo’s anti conservative rant, and of course the astronomical state taxes.

What Your Pharmacist Doesn’t Know about Plan B

The folks at a major healthcare professional  education provider were scooped by Mother Jones and, prior to that, by yours truly, regarding the ineffectiveness of Plan B ONE-STEP for the bigger girls.

They had to update their not so good analysis of the morning after pills and …. it’s still not so good. If they were offering compensation, yours truly would tell them more, but this example is blogged to illustrate a single point. The public should know that their busy health care professionals are treated like mushrooms: kept in the dark and fed B.S. concerning birth control in general.

 Pharmacists have to think about a concept of steady state when asked by physicians to dose antibiotics and other drugs, or if they work in the field of drug development. Steady state is the condition during which the intake of a drug is in a sort of equilibrium with the output or the elimination of the drug. This assumes regular dosing of the drug. Steady state generally occurs after several doses and after about 5 times the half life of the drug. Ideally drug levels at steady state are high enough to be effective, and low enough to be ‘non-toxic’.

Casting about for the reason why Plan B ONE STEP doesn’t work in American women of average size or greater, the team at this Professional Education Provider, led by N B O’ Pharm.D., BCPS,wrote the following:

“The exact mechanism for the reduced efficacy seen in overweight and obese women using levonorgestrel is not known. One proposed mechanism is that in women with an increased BMI, there is a delay in time to steady state and a prolonged half-life as seen in studies with combined oral contraceptives.21″

This nonsensically applied  idea was blamed on the article below, which covered birth control hormones in general, and addressed the drugs that females take orally every day, or those which continuously supply hormone(s) to the body,  such as patches and depot injections.

Edelman AB, Cherala G, Stanczyk FZ. Metabolism and pharmacokinetics of contraceptive steroids in obese women: a review. Contraception 2010;82:314-23.

Some poor PharmD educator is talking about STEADY STATE with respect to a drug which is taken in a single dose : Plan B ONE STEP!! 

Steady State Never Happens with a single such dose!

This is just a single example but it illustrates the point.

 1) Most of your health care professionals are generally lost in the weeds regarding birth control, and don’t know what they’re talking about. That includes the ones who really SHOULD know what they’re talking about.

 Bonus) Be assured that birth control generally does not work as well in real life as the studies claim, and many factors contribute to this.

Please consider adjusting life style and reproductive planning with at least these two facts in mind.


Comprehensive Review of Planned Parenthood Pill Scam

…….. is available at Jill Stanek’s blog.

After years of planned parenthood pushing the morning after pill, they have turned on Plan B One-step, admitting what Pharmer has been saying for years,  that it’s very ineffective.

What Jill Stanek points out is that Planned Parenthood already had a campaign lined up to push Ella (ulipristal acetate) analog of the mifepristone abortion pill, as the new morning after pill, and an IUD, which could bring them even more cash than their  abortion procedures do.  This campaign was already in the pipeline BEFORE Mother Jones spilled the story of Plan B’s ineffectiveness to the low information crowd.  Note that the video linked above was already uploaded on September 3, 2013, prior to the Mother Jones publication.  Anne Glasier’s study of Plan B inefficacy in women was published in 2011.

Back in 2010, Pharmer brought to your attention the CHMP assessment report, filed by the manufacturer of Ella One to  Europe’s version of the FDA. and explained some of the features of the pill.   Initially mentioned was that Ella One, which is called Ella in the U.S. is not very effective, and that the embryocidal dose of the pill is lower than the dose required to stop ovulation, demonstrated in the animal trials.   Also from this report, is the information that the 30mg dose is designed for 60 kg (132 lb) women, is designed to deliver  the 0.5mg/kg dose which the manufacturer stated  to be insufficient to stop ovulation, but effective against pregnancy.  This dose is not sufficient for larger women, and so Ella has  similar efficacy problems as the various forms of Plan B and Plan B One-Step (levonorgestrel).

Expect planned parenthood to sell Ella as long as it can get away with it, then kick the morning after use  aside, as women are persuaded to wear the indwelling coat hanger, Para-Gard, a copper IUD.   Pharmer thinks that planned parenthood will always keep Ella around generically, since it can be substituted for the mifepristone now marketed in the U.S. for chemical abortions.

Non News: Plan B Morning After Pill Does Not Work Well for Big Girls

The European manufacturer of Norlevo, which is their version of Plan B  (Levonorgestrel) has very kindly decided to warn people that their product does not work for women over 176 lbs, and is less effective for women over 165 lbs.

Thanks, HRA Pharma.

Check out the new warning in the Norlevo Package insert for yourself.  It discourages women over 75 Kg from relying on the drug.

This comes under the “told you so” dept. of Pharm information.  In fact, people ALSO could learn here that the newer morning after pill, Ella (ulipristal acetate) has the same problem

All of this  is obvious to those who pay attention to how drugs are designed.   Pharmer has openly warned people for years not to expect good efficacy for birth control pills designed for 130lb women  t0 be as efficacious in women who are much larger.

The U.S. recently moved the  snake oil drug, Plan B, over the counter.   Perhaps this was a crony capitalist effort to help manufacturers snap up as much profit as they could before the general news came out that the drug is not reliable for any women, and really worthless for the larger set.

It appears that Mother Jones is the first of the mainstream media to let the kitty out of the bag in the United States.  They note that the average weight of American girls is 166.2 lbs, which puts them over the weight limit for Plan B to  work at its touted 60 percent effectiveness.   The avg weight of Black and Hispanic women from 20-39 years of age is 186 lbs, which means that they can completely forget about Plan B.

Any hospital or clinic  using  this drug as a part of rape treatment is therefore pushing ineffective treatment and  charging fraudulently.   Planned Parenthood and its ilk are doing the same.

Pharmer’s favorite and oft cited birth control researcher, Anna Glasier, sent up a warning flare in 2011. Click on her effort to identify the groups for which morning after pills do not work.

The American manufacturers have not put out this warning in their product package inserts yet.   Please help your female friends  who will be paying $50 bucks for this drug at the pharmacy,  to understand that Plan B One-Step, Next Choice One Dose, My Way, and various generic one and two pill packs of levonorgestrel morning after pills are fairly worthless as birth control, and when they do work, can have an objectionable mechanism that operates AFTER fertilization.    (As a practical matter,  any perverts who are abusing underaged girls ought to be made aware of this too, so that at least one aspect of the abuse might cease.)

Noting that these hormone analogs have weight dependent efficacy, how much should women be relying on the daily or continuously administered birth control drugs????

Who is REALLY waging the war on women, who remain the  medical underclass????

Students For Life Reveal How a 15 Year Old Girl Can Buy the Morning After Pill

Pharmer has been telling you that the lefties wanted Plan B over the counter to increase the availability of children for sex.

Now you can see their plans in action. Students for Life made undercover videos in Walgreens, CVS and Rite-Aid Pharmacies in August and September of 2013 in order to demonstrate that kids need an ID and to be 18 years old to buy Sudafed, but that ANYONE of any age can buy Plan B, the morning after pill.
The first video highlights the sudafed comparison.
The second video highlights that the pharmacies will sell Plan B to an adult male with an underage girlfriend who does not have her parents’ permission to be taking the pill.

You’ll see one of the employees saying that she was not comfortable selling Plan B to a 15 year old, but felt that she had to in order to keep her job. Pharmer sez…….. sometimes you just have to get a new job

Christine Quinn Would Supply Morning After Pill to 11 Year Old Girls

In New York City, there’s a hot democrat mayoral race, headlined by two practitioners of moral turpitude, Anthony Weiner and Christine Quinn.  If either one of them wins, New York loses, but more than half of the citizenry there is completely clueless.

Christine Quinn, current speaker of the city council, is good buddy to planned parenthood and foe to pregnancy care centers.  She is  pushing to supply the morning after pill in middle schools.  Mayor Bloomberg has  already been supplying  the highly ineffective Plan B to the high schools, but Quinn likely knows that in the upcoming economic collapse, people will be renting  or selling their  children as prostitutes.  At that time,  leftie pervs will be out shopping for bargain basement rates, to get what natural selection had denied them in more normal economic and social conditions.    With Plan B and Ella failing up to 50 percent of the time, Quinn’s  friends in the abortion industry will enjoy a strong financial resurgence.

New York’s latest pick of politicians, dredged up from the toilet, might  allow that city to surpass Portland, Oregon, to become the nation’s deepest and smelliest cesspool.


Non-news: Obama Administration Complies with Judge Lifting Restriction on Plan B Sales

The Obama administration will, as expected, comply with Judge Edward Korman’s order to allow all underage girls, and their rapists to purchase Plan B without restrictions.

The latest news incorrectly states that “If a girl or woman already is pregnant, the pill, which prevents ovulation or fertilization of an egg, has no effect.”

This misrepresentation conflicts with the manufacturer’s own provider information shown below, which recognizes that the pill has multiple mechanisms of action, some of which act AFTER fertilization.  You are not being well served, in matters of science and medicine, by the news media.
Another misrepresentation  involves word play with the term “pregnancy”.  This is now said to begin about a week after embryonic development starts, in order to disguise the fact that Plan B can operate to kill an early human embryo by affecting its ability to implant in the uterus.
Plan B One-Step Mechanism
Note:  Over the counter Plan B, which demonstrates <60 percent effectiveness in actual use, is like condoms with holes in them.

Is Plan B Worthy of Pharmacy Shelf Space?

Now that whacky Judge Korman has removed the morning after pill, Plan B or Plan B One-Step from pharmacist purview altogether, it might therefore be treated by the pharmacists as an unhealthy thing, not to be sold in pharmacy environments at all. There are various over the counter products which are regarded by us to be ineffective and/or deleterious quack remedies, not worthy of being associated with any health care practice. Tobacco, ma huang (Ephedra sinica), and bitter orange have been deleted from the stock of pharmacies for health reasons. Many pharmacists have relegated homeopathic remedies to the trash heap, on account of the infinitesimal chance that the recipient might be ingesting or applying  an active medicinal ingredient.
The levonorgestrel in Plan B (U.S.)  and Levonelle (U.K),  is likely the least reliable hormonal birth control drug on the market.  It’s less than 60 percent effective per use, and is in a race with ulipristal acetate, or Ella, to the bottom.  Repeated reliance on this drug is likely to soon result in pregnancy, with the embryonic baby clinging to life, awash in an unbalanced mix of hormones.  Might not pharmacists be doing their patients a favor by telling them that this drug is too much of an unreliable, (and unethical)  mess to be used for birth control?
