Below is my response to the article in the Winnipeg Press!

re: Freeing up Plan B frees women as well


This article is as biased as it is full of errors and assumptions!  First of all Margo assumes that Napra´s decision will mean that all pharmacists will agree to carry Plan B -- not so.  She also assumes that pharmacists who will not dispense or sell it are somehow being judgemental--again not so.  She assumes that women will somehow be free because a potent steroid will now be more readily accessible--- she assumes this is as safe as taking baby aspirin.  She also assumes that life of the embryo begins at implantation---- this is a highly contestable opinion.
