Stanek weekend question: Why would a group promoting emergency contraception encourage men to buy it? – Jill Stanek.
Found at the backupyourbirthcontrol site was encouragement for males to buy emergency contraception for their sex partners. There seems to be huge support and encouragement people to have sex with those whom they don’t really like. Jill Stanek’s weekend question got right to the heart of the matter, and bears repeating.
Plan B One-step (levonorgestrel 150 mcg) is the form which is available over the counter, and which may be purchased by both males and females.
Here is a Blast from the Past from pharmacy academics who favored the availability of the original Plan B for use in underage females. This was the intended result of bringing the drug over the counter.
(If you read the entirety of THIS article, you can appreciate the utter incompetence of one of the academics referenced in the Blast from the past link.)
It’s important to remember that these morning after pills are NOT very effective. The efficacy is about 60 percent per SINGLE use. Used repeatedly, the drugs are an absolute joke for preventing pregnancy. Encouraging reliance upon the morning after pills (Ella included) is really an efficient way to sell surgical or later forms of chemical abortions. Encouraging guys to believe that the pill can increase their access to sex is a smart marketing move for the abortionists. It also places the health and well being of girls and women at risk, since males can give them the drug without their consent.
It is a public service for Jill Stanek to have asked this question about the marketing of morning after pills to males. This question needs to be repeated whenever and wherever possible, to highlight the rationale behind the morning after pills.
Ella (ulipristal acetate, analog of RU-486 mifepristone) is available for morning after use by an ONLINE PRESCRIBING process. It’s easy to obtain fraudulently and doses can be accumulated for later chemical abortions initiated at home. This mechanism was allowed by the FDA in order to make up for the shortfall of physicians willing to do surgical abortions.
The only positive aspect of this scenario is that it is ultimately self-limiting. Enhanced by the immunosuppressive qualities of the progestins, Chlamydia trachomatis and other STD organisms can help to prevent further propagation of people with this socially destructive mindset.
