Morning-after pill opposition


This letter was written to President Obama.

Dear Mr. President,

In a publication issued by Concerned Women for America, it says: “The U.S. Food and Drug Administration just announced that is has approved a plan to market Plan B One-Step (a.k.a. the morning-after pill) for use without a prescription by women 15 years of age and older. “Fifteen.”

If such be true, I personally find such administrative action irrational, unrealistic, immoral and just plain down right stupid!

I might be more understanding a little less angry if the age requirement was 21 years of age, but requiring the over the counter sale to females as young as 15 years of age without a prescription or parental authorization is just plain sinful. Let me call it a “No Brainer” piece of rule making.

Will you please direct the F. and D. Administration to amend their rule to read 21 years of age as a minimum. Thanks.

I do support a female’s right to choose without any question the first 12-16 weeks of pregnancy, and after that period of the reasons become rather limited and conditional.

However, I don’t promote promiscuity in minors or teenagers, and certainly that is what the proposed rule would encourage at the age of 15. Remember my letter recently to you on the USA becoming known as “GAL” for Greed, Arrogance and Lust? Well, this proposed rule certainly would promote sexual activity in the age group of teenager males, or agitate their lust!

Do you really believe that your two young daughters should be able to purchase such pills without your or Michelle’s knowledge? I seriously doubt it.

Let me hear from you soon on this important matter. Thanks.

Robert Gifford
