ella is here

there should be NO issues. we not only SHOULD have but we MUST have control over our bodies. if one chooses NOT to use contraception, fine. that is a choice you have. please let me have MY choice (choice, look it up)

if it's safe (and by NO means is everything the fda approves SAFE) let US have the option. do NOT keep trying to control my life through my body. i WILL NOT let you

FDA approves ella as 5-day-after emergency contraceptive
By Rob Stein

The Food and Drug Administration approved a controversial new form of emergency contraception Friday that can prevent a pregnancy as many as five days after sex.
The decision to allow the sale of the pill, which will be marketed under the brand name "ella," was welcomed by family-planning proponents as a crucial new option to prevent unwanted pregnancies. But critics condemned the decision, arguing that it was misleading to approve ella as a contraceptive because the drug could also be used to induce an abortion.
Ella can cut the chances of becoming pregnant by about two-thirds for at least 120 hours after a contraceptive failure or unprotected sex, studies have shown. The only other emergency contraceptive on the market, the so-called morning-after pill sold as Plan B, is significantly less effective, becomes less effectual with each passing day and will not work after 72 hours..............

Freedom of choice is a supremely difficult concept for some people, isn't it?
