Made a bad choice? Erase it in the morning!

Oregon Bill to Sell Morning After Pill Over the Counter Under Passes
Legislation that would make Oregon one of just seven states nationwide to allow sales of the so-called morning after pill over the counter received approval from the Oregon state Senate Tuesday. The measure comes at a time when the FDA is considering allowing women over 16 to purchase the drugs without a doctor's visit.

You know what works better than a "morning after" pill? Don't do something stupid the night before!

Human nature being what it is, people will do stupid stuff. We can't all be as ideology pure as you...

Yes, people will do stupid stuff... then you take full responsibility for it instead of killing a life because it might "invonveniance" you.

Dude, there ain't no fetus within 72 hours after having sex. At most its in the very, very early stages. What about in cases of rape? I know people who have taken this pill and its becuase they got drunk, etc. and had sex. Then they wanted to make sure they didn't get pregnant..

Sorry, but that is not what the Bible says. God says that he formed our hearts and knows us from the very beginning.

Personally, I think that is pretty wonderful that we are so loved and known by such an incredible God.

JWalker, I enjoy your comments so much!

Anonymous, "dude" you ain't speaking english so good. It makes it hard to believe that you are a scientist capable of discerning when life begins.

You make my argument for me that this pill enables selfish people who got drunk "etc" and then want to erase their choices. Time to grow up and take some personal responsibility!

I think you're misunderstanding the function of the pill. It is not an aborticant, that is, it's not designed be effective after conception. The main function is to prevent conception from sperm (which are fertile for up to 5 days) to ovum (which may be released during those days). The prevention of conception here is equivalent to preventing conception through withdrawl, condoms, or birth control pills. In fact, the "morning after pill" is principally just a super-dose of birth control pill hormones.

If you are opposed to birth control, it makes sense to oppose this, but if you use birth control, this pill seems to agree with your beliefs, even if you believe in protecting life starting at conception.

The "morning after pill" or Plan B is designed to make the uterus inhospitable for an egg. That is, it will not attach itself to the uterine wall. This includes eggs that have been joined with a sperm to create new life. Since I believe that life starts at the moment the egg and sperm join I don't like the idea of a pill that causes that life to be terminated.
