Is this really something that we want out there for anyone to be able to get?

A controversial morning after pill known as Plan B, once a prescription, behind-the-counter contraceptive, is now being sold freely on the widely popular online marketplace Amazon, bringing the option to abort an unborn embryo right to people’s doorsteps.
Multiple listings have cropped up on the retail giant’s digital shelves, with prices starting at just $16.90 plus shipping, but increasing the drug’s availability not only reinforces the culture teaching women that motherhood is horrible and having babies is disempowering; it also feeds into the cultural worship of death.
Opponents of Plan B contend the drug’s manufacturers have knowingly misled consumers by claiming it does no harm to a “fetus,” attempting to relieve potential parents of the guilt associated with having an abortion.
However, the fact that Plan B “may inhibit implantation [of a fertilized embryo] by altering the endometrium [i.e. the lining of the womb],” basically equates to causing the death of the embryo, former Valparaiso University Law Professor Richard Stith argues.
“In other words, Plan B may cause a newly-conceived embryo to die (and be expelled) because it cannot implant itself in the lining of the womb. For this reason, some South American courts have found the Plan B drug to violate an unborn child’s constitutionally-guaranteed right to life,” Prof. Stith wrote for LifeSiteNews in 2006.
“When the drug maker tells them not to worry because they are not terminating a pregnancy, they may conclude incorrectly that Plan B cannot cause the death of their unborn child. When they find out too late that they were misled and may have taken the lives of their own children, they may be devastated. And the drug maker, the media, and the FDA will be responsible,” Stith wrote.
