Holy smokes. What a spin on this story.
Pres. Bush practically endorsed the OTC sell of the morning after pill with one limitation: that it not be sold to minors WITHOUT A PRESCRIPTION.
And I'm sure that'll be enforced, just like the ban on selling cigarettes to minors is always enforced.
It's his RIGHT that should be troubled by the comments he made in his press conference on this issue, not the LEFT.
If fact, if you can find a tape, you should WATCH that interview from earlier in the week and see just how sheepish he was when he admitted that the only problem he had with it was that minors needed more then just OTC instructions for it.
(Scroll all the way down, it was the last question asked.)
"Q Thank you very much. Mr. President, some pro-life groups are worried that your choice of FDA Commissioner will approve over the counter sales of Plan B, a pill that, they say, essentially can cause early-term abortions. Do you stand by this choice, and how do you feel about Plan B in general?
THE PRESIDENT: I believe that Plan B ought to be -- ought to require a prescription for minors, is what I believe. And I support Andy's decision. "
The question was about Plan B being made OTC because of Bush's choice of FDA Commissioner. Pres. Bush's answer: I support Andy's decision.
