Strange Brew, Kills What's Inside of You

Remember that old Cream song? Morbidly, it's the first thing I thought of when I heard this morning that the FDA will most likely make the Plan B "Morning After" pill available without a prescription.

Plan B is essentially a megadose of prescription hormonal birth-control pills. It is marketed as a contraceptive but it works both before and after conception. This means that it destroys anything that may have been conceived the night before.

So why the big push to make this strange brew more readily available? After all, a 2005 study co-authored by a Planned Parenthood doctor in the Journal of the American Medical Association showed that having Plan B on hand did nothing to reduce pregnancy rates compared to those who obtained the drug from a pharmacy.

My only answer is that it's the unfortunate yet natural result of a culture based on death. And that culture's proponents are focused on making death readily available just in case you might need to kill what's inside of you.
