The provincial pharmacy bodies in every province but Quebec will follow a national advisory board’s recommendation that the morning-after pill (Plan B) be made available on store shelves without so much as a consultation with a pharmacist, let alone a doctor’s prescription. This is dangerous for women and lethal for newly conceived embryonic human beings. That such a pill will be available alongside aspirin and cold medicine, and be as easy to grab as a chocolate bar or pack of gum, says a lot about our society.
