Nathan Tabor: There's Got To Be No Morning-After

Having lost the primaries for NC State Senate, Nathan Tabor has a lot of time on his hands to think about all the issues that are important to him.  Today, it's womens' health women acting like hos:

Imagine going to your doctor and being offered a pill—not because you were sick, or in any danger of becoming sick. No—your friendly physician is simply giving you drugs because you’re a woman.

If that sounds like a Hitchcock horror story to you—be prepared. Gynecologists around the country are embarking on a weird medical experiment that could have serious repercussions for women’s health.

Now, of course, Nathan wants you to think that certain drugs are being given to women simply because they are women.  He also wants you to get the impression that women are being given drugs involuntarily.  Hence, the "Hitchcock horror story".  Of course, nothing could be further from the truth.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) has decided it won’t wait for the Food and Drug Administration to approve over-the-counter sales of the so-called morning after pill—a pill which is supposed to help women who are harboring regret over a sexual encounter the night before.

Hmmmm.  Seems Nathan Tabor really think FDA approval is important.

Revival Soy, a protein supplement product, is the Tabor family business.  Nathan's brother is the CEO and founder of that company, his mom is the chief financial officer, and so on. 

At product's website, you will learn how the product can lower cholesterol, improve your nails and skin, and help with menopausal problems and weight loss. 

You will also  note  the following disclaimer in small letters at the bottom of the page: "These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration."

Hypocrisy, thy name is Nathan Tabor.

Of course, it doesn’t matter that the FDA is hesitant to give the pills out like candy because it doesn’t want to promote promiscuity among young people. Also, some leading medical experts say that the morning after pill doesn’t just prevent pregnancy—it can also kill a child who has already been conceived in her mother’s womb.

Some leading medical experts like....?  Oh, no facts.  Just bald statements.

No, ACOG won’t let the facts stand in the way of its misguided idea of scientific progress. In fact, the gynecologists’ group employs this fuzzy reasoning for promoting morning after pill prescriptions: women tend to have sex on weekends. Maybe women also tend to have beer on Saturday nights. Does that mean their family doctors should load them up with six packs every time they come in for flu shots?

I'm sure Nathan understands this analogy.  He's probably the only one.

The fact is, the pro-abortion contingent of ACOG is running scared.

Nathan, that's not a fact.  That's a conclusion, and a rather hyperbolic one at that.

Pharmacists throughout the country have said they don’t want to dispense the morning after pill, also known as emergency "contraception," because they have religious and moral objections to it. The abortionists know that if they can get women hooked on the morning after pill that they’ll have more support for their agenda—which includes abortion any time for any reason, anywhere. 

Hooked?  Is the morning-after pill physically addictive?

It’s interesting to note that some experts have come to the conclusion that there really isn’t a great demand for the morning after pill.

Well, then what exactly are you worried about?  If your (unnamned) experts are correct, the morning-after pill will got the way of the Pet Rock.

In other words, pharmacies are not going to go out of business for refusing to stock it.

I'm sure that's true.  They also won't go out of business for refusing to stock Pepto Bismal and Q-Tips.

So the only way for big drug companies to sell the morning after pill and other such concoctions is to market them directly to doctors.   

Which is standard practice for ANY drug or health product.  Even Revival Soy seeks doctor testimonials.

Every time a woman comes into a gynecologist’s office, ACOG wants the doctor to offer her advance prescriptions of the morning after pill. But it is apparently not enough to simply make the offer; indeed, some women are reporting that their gynecologists are insisting that they take the prescription—even if they say repeatedly that they don’t want it.

What women?  How many?  Where does this happen?

The doctors urge them, "it’s good for a year!" This kind of scenario makes a mockery out of the phrase "pro-choice." In a situation like this, how can anyone not conclude that "pro-choice" is really "pro-abortion?"

Even assuming that doctors can force women to take a subscription, how can they possibly force women to fill that subscription?  All a woman has to do is leave the doctor's office and throw away the piece of paper.  Really, Nathan, you're suffering from dimentia here.

Apparently, ACOG sees no reason for gynecologists to inform their patients that the morning after pill can cause abortions—even if some women have strong moral objections to abortion. For ACOG, the pill is a simple solution to the estimated 2.7 million unplanned pregnancies that occur each year.

But the fact of the matter is, a number of us were the result of unplanned pregnancies. You don’t have to be planned—or even wanted by your natural parents—in order to make a difference in this world. Every human life is precious from the moment of conception—and no dictate from ACOG can change that.   

Just like that famous bastard and adoptee, Adolf Hitler!

Doctors routinely tell pregnant women not to take any medication during their pregnancies for fear that it will harm their unborn children. If a pregnant woman can’t take an aspirin, how can doctors assume that it’s safe for her to take the morning after pill?

Oh, dear.  Medication can hurt the fetus, which is why doctors warn pregnant women not to take certain medications.  Of course, with the morning after pill, hurting (actually, preventing) the fetus is the goal.  So it's not the same thing.

Now comes the best part:

What if the pill "fails" and the woman remains pregnant? Or what if the woman takes the pill when she’s already six weeks along? And what’s to prevent the pill from getting into the hands of the woman’s impressionable 13-year-old daughter, who sees the pill as a good excuse to "hook up" with a boy she barely knows? Will ACOG pay for the girl’s counseling when she discovers that the boy who took away her virginity is a stalker or 40 years old?

Ah, the Hitchockian nightmare.  Let's all play.

What if a 12 year old loses weight by using Revival Soy, and therefore becomes more attractive, subjecting her to child molestation by her natural father who then rapes her and beats her into submission?  Will Nathan's family pay for all those damages done to her?

Hey, that was fun.

Any doctor who thinks nothing of dispensing a pill that can kill has no place in the healing arts. Whether an abortion is surgical or chemical, it is still a tragedy for both mother and child.

And no dicate can change Nathan's dictate.  I holler period.
