Quote# 11703

Imagine going to your doctor and being offered a pill—not because you were sick, or in any danger of becoming sick. No—your friendly physician is simply giving you drugs because you’re a woman.
[...]
The gynecologists’ group employs this fuzzy reasoning for promoting morning after pill prescriptions: women tend to have sex on weekends. Maybe women also tend to have beer on Saturday nights. Does that mean their family doctors should load them up with six packs every time they come in for flu shots?
[...]
what’s to prevent the pill from getting into the hands of the woman’s impressionable 13-year-old daughter, who sees the pill as a good excuse to "hook up" with a boy she barely knows? Will ACOG pay for the girl’s counseling when she discovers that the boy who took away her virginity is a stalker or 40 years old?

So morning after pills should be taken off the market because a 13-year old may get her hands on it, and may then go and have sex with a 40 year old? That's a bit of a leap. By the way, where's the kids parents in this twisted fairy tale of yours?

Boy, that's stretching for the worst of worst cases, eh?

What about having knives in your kitchen? What's to stop your impressionable 13-year-old daughter from taking that knife and stabbing someone or killing herself?

What about your running shoes. Your daughter might get ahold of those running shoes and use them to sneak up on someone, kill them and then speedily run away into the night.

What about her hands? She might use them to strangle someone or steal something.

What's even more pathetic is it's not even original. It's from a conservetard named Nathan Tabor. He's running for office in North Carolina.

\"women tend to have sex on weekends. Maybe women also tend to have beer on Saturday nights. Does that mean their family doctors should load them up with six packs every time they come in for flu shots?\"

Geez, this is a hell of a lot less than my intake! Is my doctor going to become my dealer now??

\"Imagine going to your doctor and being offered a pill—not because you were sick, or in any danger of becoming sick. No—your friendly physician is simply giving you drugs because you’re a woman.\"

Much like they used to with any ailment a woman had. They classified most complaints from female patients as simply being from a \"hysterical woman\". Of course you probably think those were the good old days.

\"The gynecologists’ group employs this fuzzy reasoning for promoting morning after pill prescriptions: women tend to have sex on weekends.\"

I would imagine that means men do also. What was your point again?

\"Will ACOG pay for the girl’s counseling when she discovers that the boy who took away her virginity is a stalker or 40 years old?\"

Even at thirteen years old I seriously doubt the girl would have to \"discover\" after the fact that the guy she slept with was forty years old.

Judging by your post I think you should familiarize yourself with the word hyperbole.

Wow...
Guess I had better stop having sex only on Wednesdays then...

I wish these people couldn't vote.

Doctors routinely tell pregnant women not to take any medication during their pregnancies for fear that it will harm their unborn children. If a pregnant woman can’t take an aspirin, how can doctors assume that it’s safe for her to take the morning after pill? What if the pill \"fails\" and the woman remains pregnant?

What's to expect from that? (I meant to say mind, but that would be an overstatement...)

Offering pills even if you aren't sick... Isn't that what placebo's are for? To get rid of the complaining patient without going into a debate. And if you aren't sick and you know that, what are you doing at the doctor's office?

I'd love a six pack everytime I go to the doctor. The only problem is that in the last 15 years I've only gone to the doctor for a broken arm. So no free beer for me...

Who cares about losing your virginity? It is just an emotional blackmail by society to keep you from having sex. And discovering that he is 40 after the fact? I bet she didn't notice the wrinkles, that he was fully grown or maybe even a beard/mustache.

Uh, no, but they'll probably get rid of the nightmarish emotional trauma that would come with giving birth to the product of being raped by a 40-year-old man, and they'll probably save her life from the birth process that their body might not be able to handle.

\"Does that mean their family doctors should load them up with six packs every time they come in for flu shots?\"

Sounds like a good alternative for me. I'll take a 6 pack of beer any day of the week, even if I don't have the flu.

\"Maybe women also tend to have beer on Saturday nights. Does that mean their family doctors should load them up with six packs every time they come in for flu shots?\"

--------------------

That has to be the stupidest analogy imaginable, since beers and flu don't have a single thing to do with each other, while the \"morning after\" pill is specifically linked to the issue of sex. A proper analogy would refer to giving a retroactive vaccine (if such a thing could exist) to someone who had just had contact with a flu patient, and there is nothing licentious about that.

Just admit that you can't stand the thought of women being able to have sex without the risk of becoming chained by it -- in other words, having the sexual freedom that men have always had available to them.

Wait--you're not actually pregnant yet when you take that pill, right?

Never mind. That's hardly the most egregious problem here.

sweetheart, some drugs we take to PREVENT things. You know, like a vaccination. Maybe it's a bad analogy or choice of words, but think of the morning after pill as a sort of baby tetnus shot. You got a prick, and you're taking the right action to stop things getting out of hand.

Nathan: Once you have a clue how consensual, guilt-free adult relationships work, alongside an understanding of the female reproductive system, and lose the concept of virginity being A Big Deal, then you will see why emergency contraception is sometimes necessary and why it has to be widely available. Unless you, personally, are volunteering to look after all the unwanted children as a result of women being unable to access EC.

Gotta love how in this fucktard's world parents with young kids just leave drugs lying everywhere... One would hope Mr Fuckwit here takes better care of the gun he's bound to have.

Not to mention that apparently he has yet to realize that any kid bright enough to identify the drug needed would also realize that her mom may notice that there is one pill missing.

Last time my doctor handed me a pill, it was at a very specific party; and he DIDN'T have his lab coat on...

So, groups of gynocologists are foisting unknown drugs on women on Mondays, GPs are handing out half-sacks once a year, and 13 year old girls eat any pill they find so they can have sex with stalkers no one else has noticed?

My only question: Where are the gypsies?

No morning after pills because A 13 year old might see it, and then go get herself raped?

Lets get rid of your religion, because a bible might get left on the floor of a church, and someone trip and break their neck.
