My Two #PlanB Rants & Surprising Hope for the Left

Last night I flew into two separate rages on Twitter about the manner in which folks on the left were discussing the Obama Administration's controversial Plan B decision. Me? Flying into a rage about Obama? NEVER HAPPENS. *ahem* Read More

And I may be a dyed-in-the-wool Obot, but today's Plan B medication decision was a terrible call. http://t.co/5zr4rhL6

Yup. RT @ZandarVTS: And I may be a dyed-in-the-wool Obot, but today's Plan B medication decision was a terrible call. http://t.co/VSnIYAD2

@ZandarVTS heads exploding all over cyberspace at the idea that Obamabots don't defend POTUS under any circumstances. ;-)

@AngryBlackLady I know right? Already gotten a couple "Oh this you care about but not OBAMA DRONES KILLING KIDS"

Hang on... Are my friends on the left saying 11 and 12 year olds should be able to buy Plan B off the shelf at CVS? Really???
Joy Reid @JoyAnnReid
@mommadona um... If a child that young gets pregnant, there are serious pathologies that require help, not a toddle over to the drugstore.
Joy Reid @JoyAnnReid
@mommadona Plan B is a grownup drug, not a multivitamin. A doctor. & parent or counselor should be involved. As a parent, I'm all WTF libs?
Joy Reid @JoyAnnReid
I have to say this... Sometimes the left leaves me SMH. #therearetwoextremes
Joy Reid @JoyAnnReid
"@karenhunter: @TheReidReport : this is not a political issue, it's a parenting issue. And the cut-off age should be 18." / Amen!
Joy Reid @JoyAnnReid
@MWJ1231 @sweetcop95 yes, and a parent should put you on it, and if you can't deal with your parent, a counselor or doc should help.
Joy Reid @JoyAnnReid
@MWJ1231 @sweetcop95 leaving it to 11 and 12 YOs to manage their own healthcare is tantamount to saying they're on their own. They're kids.
Joy Reid @JoyAnnReid
@MWJ1231 @sweetcop95 my 12 YO can't keep track of his ipod or remember to do the dishes. But he can make healthcare decisions and buy meds?
Joy Reid @JoyAnnReid
@karenhunter I think this is a chance for the far left to vent at Obama for "abandoning liberalism again!!!" Meh.
Joy Reid @JoyAnnReid
@lbutlr why should a doctor be involved??? Do YOU know what this drug is? You can't get birth control pills over the counter either btw...
Joy Reid @JoyAnnReid
@dvnix they're acting as if its about 12 YOs managing their perfectly normal, active sex lives. Ga..
Joy Reid @JoyAnnReid
LEVONORGESTREL - ORAL (Plan B) side effects, medical uses, and drug interactions. http://t.co/mYT7VSbU / it's a DRUG, people.
Joy Reid @JoyAnnReid
We've got to stop this attitude of drugs being just stronger vitamins. They're chemicals, w/ all sorts of potential interactions and side fx
Joy Reid @JoyAnnReid
A 12 year old won't understand the potential risk of chemicals; won't follow the Plan B's own warning not to use it as birth control...
Joy Reid @JoyAnnReid
Won't know what to do if one of the side effects kicks in, and their parents won't know either, if they're not aware what their child took.
Joy Reid @JoyAnnReid
The child's pediatrician can't respond to serious side effects of a drug they aren't aware a child has taken.
Joy Reid @JoyAnnReid
Chemicals are just that. They alter the body's chemistry. That's huge when done to a developing child as young as 11.
Joy Reid @JoyAnnReid
On the Plan B website, it clearly states: no prescription needed if OVER 17 YEARS OLD. Even they didn't intend the drug for use by kids.
Joy Reid @JoyAnnReid
MT @joanwalsh This doesn't just effect 10-11 yos-girls...everyone now has to ask a pharmacist, its not on shelf @MWJ1231/neither is the pill
Joy Reid @JoyAnnReid
@MaryinNV @ak2sandiego @mommadona my teenagers can't clean their rooms as directed. They'd be stopped from buying Sudafed w/o me there. WTF?
