This would help reduce incidence of abortions... so naturally I'm sure conservatives will oppose this in 3...2...1...

IMHO - parental approval should required.

But
I agree with atl134 100%.
Conservatives will oppose it, even if it slows abortions -- and then offer NO solution for it.

Just, more of the same old "No".

@atl, you are correct. I'm sure this will reduce the number of abortions. But who cares about the increased incidents of unprotected sex at younger and younger ages. I mean, who cares about that? (sarcasm intended)

Re: "Conservatives will oppose it, even if it slows abortions . . . ."

How could administration of an abortifacient drug possibly reduce or slow abortions?

Such an assertion is simply a hopeful chanting of the cynical, liberal big lie, suggesting abortion is, somehow, not abortion. It's beyond sad that we're even having this discussion.

"Plan B" was argued, fought over, and defeated in the War in Heaven. With the defeat of its demonic proponent, consequences were inalterably welded to actions.

No liberal or demonic [OK, so that's a redundancy] sophistry can nullify or shield credulous youngsters from those consequences.

No matter how loud, how often, or how hopefully liberals chant the big lie.

You mean decreased, right? Or have you even looked at the actual statistics?

@Procuradorfiscal – “Such an assertion is simply a hopeful chanting of the cynical, liberal big lie, suggesting abortion is, somehow, not abortion.”

The 3…2…1 prediction was spot on here.

You need to read up on the science of what this pill actually does… it is not an abortion pill (whatever that is).

@Procuradorfiscal - "Plan B" was argued, fought over, and defeated in the War in Heaven. With the defeat of its demonic proponent, consequences were inalterably welded to actions.”

I’m speechless…

Re: "You need to read up on the science of what this pill actually does . . . ."

Well, someone does, anyway.

From its own propaganda, describing the 3 ways in which the drug works -- ". . . this type of emergency birth control prevents implantation of a FERTILIZED EGG in the uterus by altering its lining [my emphasis]."

In other words, it causes a woman's body to flush a perfectly good human out of her womb.

That's called abortion.

And liberal bleating, notwithstanding, it has consequences they're not empowered to relieve, particularly by chanting the disingenuous, no-consequences mantra of their homemade secular religion.

@procuradorfiscal – “Well, someone does, anyway.”

Here is what the Mayo Clinic says about the pill:

"morning-after pills may act by one or more of the following actions: delaying or preventing ovulation, blocking fertilization, or keeping a fertilized egg from implanting in the uterus. However, recent evidence strongly suggests that Plan B One-Step and Next Choice do not inhibit implantation… the morning-after pill isn't the same as mifepristone (Mifeprex), also known as RU-486 or the abortion pill. Mifeprex terminates an established pregnancy — one in which the fertilized egg has attached to the uterine wall and has already begun to develop"

No doubt you will still find it a moral outrage due to the small chance of the pill aborting a fertilized egg, but to me the real question is – “on what basis does a pill like this deserve the same moral condemnation as either a later term abortion or even the murder of a (post-birth) baby?

Just curious…
