Obama Endorses Block On Morning After Pill Decision

Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaHealthSex

President Obama stood behind his health secretary deicision to block over the counter sales of the morning after pill to under 17 year olds.

The FDA presented claims that the Plan B One Step was safe and should be available to women over the counter.

While the president stated he was not involved in the decision, he did say he agreed with Secretary Kathleen Sebelius's philosohpy that younger teens shouldn't be able to buy the drug without supervision.

Obama states the following:

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.

The move by Obama suggests that the adminstration wanted to avoid conflict with the GOP.

Pollsters state that this move is less political than some may think. Pollster Geoff Garin states the move was a "damned if you do, damned if you don't."

This hurts Obama's appeal to women voters and support groups.

Teva, the manufacturer of Plan B, also faces a minor setback.

The goal was to make the pill available next to condoms and other contraceptives, alerting teen and young adult awareness.

What do U think? Is this a good move by the Obama administration?

After reviewing data and research on the subject matter for ten months, FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg said:

Brad Pitt The Normal Heart Plan B

As we previously reported, Glee creator Ryan Murphy is bringing the critically acclaimed The Normal Heart to the big screen!

The semi-autobiographical play revolving around friends and the spread and awareness of HIV/AIDS in the 80s has Mark Ruffalo attached to star.

Another big name aboard the film is Brad Pitt, but he won't be in front of the camera. His production company, Plan B, is producing the film.

We believed in this project before, but with Brad's belief in it, we're even more hooked!

Well, he's certainly keeping himself busy, isn't he?

Brad Pitt may have just signed up for a new starring role in The Gray Man, but will reportedly also be taking a back seat as a producer in the upcoming film adaptation of Solomon Northup's 1853 autobiography, Twelve Years a Slave!

Steve McQueen will direct the flick, which is being produced through Pitt's Plan B, and will star Chiwetel Ejiofor as a free African American who is kidnapped and sold into slavery.

Wow! This certainly sounds like it's going to tackle some fascinating subject matter!

Definitely worth checking out when it's released!

What do U think?? Will U go see Twelve Years a Slave?
