The following comes from a June 10 story on LifeSiteNews.com.
The Obama administration announced last night that it will drop a legal challenge many critics believed was an act of political posturing and allow the sale of the Plan B One Step “morning after pill” over the counter. As soon as the FDA completes the appropriate paperwork, any minor girl who has reached the age of fertility – possibly 11 years old or younger – will be able to purchase the drug without a prescription or parental notification.
The administration announced it was ending its legal challenge to a federal judge’s ruling last night.
Now the manufacturer of Plan B, the Israeli-based Teva Pharmaceuticals, will have to submit an application for over-the-counter sale. “Once FDA receives that supplemental application, the FDA intends to approve it promptly,” the agency said in a statement issued Monday night.
Thus ends a multi-year effort by pro-abortion lobbyists to make the potentially abortifcient pill readily available.
U.S. District Judge Edward Korman of New York ruled in April that the morning after pill must be made available over-the-counter to girls of all ages. The Obama administration appealed the ruling, while lowering the age girls may purchase the abortion-inducing drug to 15 – a decision that Obama said made him and HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius “comfortable.”
This was a change of tune from 2011, when Obama had suggested that restricting Plan B to those 17 years old and older was “common sense.”
At the time, Obama issued a statement in support of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius’s decision to overrule and FDA decision to lift age restrictions on Plan B. “I will say this, as the father of two daughters: I think it is important for us to make sure that we apply some common sense to various rules when it comes to over-the-counter medicine,” he said.
Added Obama: “And as I understand it, the reason Kathleen made this decision was she could not be confident that a 10-year-old or an 11-year-old going into a drugstore should be able — alongside bubble gum or batteries — be able to buy a medication that potentially, if not used properly, could end up having an adverse effect. And I think most parents would probably feel the same way….”

There is no common sense anymore. Obama sold his soul to the evil one many years ago. Our children are no longer protected in this country. From pre-birth to pre-adult. No longer have a right to be born and if they are born accidentally then they have no right to be kept alive if not wanted and children who are rape victims can be forced to take abortion pill without any consequences or questions asked. No longer protected by parents or doctors who are not informed that a child is pregnant. So I guess the only one who is protected by this is the “father” of the victim who can go on to rape another child or a “boyfriend” who can impregnate another “girlfriend”. We protect animals better than this. Pray for America and pray for our world. The evil one is embedded from within. God Help Us! We have lost our soul.
Obama may never have sold his soul, he simply has not had an Encounter with Jesus the Christ.
Remember who taught him about Jesus. Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Now that Jesus presented over there is not really the Man God himself, but some sort of banana plantation anti white person decendant of slave Jesus fighting evil America.
Obama only finally went to a so called Christian church for political reasons. Before Wright, he had no church affiliation. So you can’t really even blame Wright. Many of us believe that Obama is directly from Hell.
Anyone who actually thought he would defend the case against that so called judge, where in the Constitution are judges given that much power?, needs to get their heads examined!
Viva Cristo Rey!
God bless, yours in Their Hearts,

Bad decision…..but very consistent with the Obama White House.
I wonder what this president’s daughters really think of him. They do not look too happy in the picture. Perhaps they realize that they have a father who is not really, really protecting them either and making them and young men truly responsible. Children have a sixth sense about hypocrisy and weakness, and this man has plenty of it.
So now Obama is a bad father? Racist much?
No, Anonymous, there are many bad fathers of all colors and supposed religions. I could name quite a few others, but the list would be too long for here. So was I a racist when I said what I did about John Kerry???? I hardly think so. Name calling will get you nowhere.
But you failed to share with us how you claim to devise that this black father was a bad black father. You offerred no evidence other than your own twisted interpretetation of tehir daughers image, and at that, only one image.
A good father would have protected children who survived abortions at least until they died by voting for the Born Alive Act. Don’t you think his daughters will find out the truth about that some day and realize how callous their father was, unless they never hear about it, which is highly unlikely. A good father would not push abortion (the killing of a child) as an option if the daughter chooses to have sexual relations outside of marriage and consider a child a “punishment”. A good father would tell his daughter to avoid marital relations outside of marriage and why, or at least see that his wife gives her some good sound literature on the dangers of STD’s and broken heats as a result, and that it is not all right to kill his grandchild if she and her boyfriend choose to disobey. Although it is not a Catholic press, Focus on the Family has some fine literature to teach young people how to avoid such pitfalls. A good father would tell her about good options if it happens anyway, and I think you can use your imagination to think of some good options. A good father would tell them the truth about abortion — that a child is killed in every abortion and that the more abortions one has the greater the chance of a woman getting different types of female cancers. Anonymous, contrary to what you might think, there are many good fathers out there doing just that, even if they have made some mistakes of their own in their lives. I always remember the Eric Burton song called “The House of the Rising Sun”. In the song the singer tells his son (probably not his own son), “Not to do what I have done.” I do not think I need to go on with this. You should know by now exactly what I mean. Adoption to a two parent heterosexual couple is always an option if politicians like President Obama do not make it near impossible because they want to be “politically correct” and include two men or two women. You see mostly I had good fathers, not perfect but good, even if they were only spiritual fathers. They told me the truth, not lies or what I “wanted” to hear because they were afraid I would not like them.. Thank God for all of those, and may God eternally bless them, and may the Good Lord forgive me when and if I failed to listen.
Also, Anonymous, years ago a young African-American teenage girl was complaining to a teacher and me that her father, a minister, was too strict. I told her, “Listen to your father. He is only trying to keep you out of trouble. You are lucky you have a father. I never knew my father since my mother and father were divorced when I was very young, and I was raised by my grandparents.” Thank God the teacher, a woman, backed me up on that one and hopefully the young woman listened to us.
A father who would encourage his daughters to use contraception and get abortions as the please is a bad father.
A Good father would want his girls to live the way God created them. Have sex within marriege and should they find themselves pregnant, support them and help them raise the child.
It certainly clear that President Obama would not welcome a child born out of wedlock with open arms.
He would show these girls to the closest PP.
Hence, he is a bad father, though he probably does not know it.
Of course he is a bad father…
Oh, wow! am I a slow leaner at times. So Israeli pharmacies are going to profit from all this. Shame on you Children of the Prophets and Children Who Stoned the Prophets. What runs through my mind is, “Rachel crying for her children and they were no more,” and you will have done it to yourselves. Also, what the Lord Jesus Christ said, ” Another one will come in my name and him will you accept,” meaning an anti Christ. One more thing You want us to defend you from the big, bad Muslims. Well, good luck on that one!!!!!! It seems you are now in cahoots.
And as for anyone who is thinking of calling me Antisemitic, I have defended the Jewish people on these websites many times when they were right, but some their involvement in pushing, especially on very young girls without parental permission, the Morning After Pill with all its horeendous side effects and potential to abort is a very serious crime, whether it becomes legal or not.
Correction: “some OF their involvement” and “horrendous” not “horeendous”.
Anne It’s really OK, we all make some spelling mistakes, and we have all been victim of “forced errors” thanks to auto correct. Don’t worry when you flub, we’ve all been there.
Sorry ALL, this post to Anne was meant to be from me. I forgot to logon. My point continues…Anne, as well as others, should feel no need to correct for typographic errors. We all do them, and in some cases, electronics create the erors!
Sorry Anne, keep postin
Correction: slow learner.
The Obama administration decision to allow easy access to MAP (morning after pill) is based on false arguments.
The literature states that Levonorgestrel, the active ingredient of Plan B MAP, is associated with depression, ovarian cyst enlargement, high blood pressure, increased risk of ectopic pregnancy and more.These health risks are multiplied with increased MAP use, a fact underemphasized by MAP promoters.
The argument that easy access MAP will reduce pregnancy and abortion rates is false. While MAP has abortifacient potential (and most are uninformed about this), a study in the Journal of Ob-Gyn, (2007) by authors Elizabeth G. Raymond and James Trussell, admitted “increased access to emergency contraception pills enhance use, but have not been shown to reduce unintended pregnancy rates.”
A English study compared areas where MAP was made free of charge to teens at pharmacies with areas where MAP was not free. Findings: pregnancy rates for girls under 16 remained the same in both areas, while rates of sexually transmitted diseases increased by 12 % in those areas where MAP was made freely available. The researcher concluded, “We find that offering the MAP free did not have the intended effect of cutting teen pregnancies but did have the unfortunate side effect of increasing STD” and “. . . young people are having more unprotected sex.”
Easy access of MAP is a ‘perfect fit’ for sexual predators and human sex traffickers who can force its use on an underage girls. Human sex traffickers force young girls into prostitution and slavery where the average age for these girls is 12 to 14 years. These girls are “locked up in rooms or brothels . . . drugged, terrorized and raped repeatedly.” In recent FBI raids on human sex trafficking houses, “stashes of MAP” were found.
No valid arguments exist for easy accessibility of MAP. The health and well-being of girls, rather than being the first priority, is shown expendable by the Obama administration and by MAP manufacturers and sellers who profit from sales that target vulnerable girls.
