Plan B to Stay in Pennsylvania University!


Anxious Girl

Recommended Posts

In Shippensburg University Pennsylvania, the FDA oked to allow a Plan B vending machine in universities. After the news about it last year outranged anti-choicers, the FDA realized that colleges and universities across America allows contraceptives. Don't worry, folks! We're slowly but surely winning the war against the fundies' agenda! http://news.msn.com/us/fda-ok-with-coll ... ng-machine

"Some critics expressed concern that [the availability of the machine] might encourage students to have sex."

I don't understand how discouraging young ADULTS from having sex could possibly fall under a university's charter. Don't conservatives teach their children the "say-it-out-loud-and-see-if-it-still-makes-sense test"?

And seat belts encourage people to drive recklessly

And life jackets encourage people to tip their canoes

And fire extinguishers encourage people to play with matches

How do these people not see their total lack of logic???

When it comes to sex or reproductive rights, anything that errs on the side of safety is considered to "encourage people to have sex". HPV vaccines, plan B, OCP, condoms, etc. I'm just surprised no one argued antibiotics encouraged promiscuity yet!

Yay! This is totally necessary so that women can be in control of their bodies.

I remember thinking in college that it was great that condoms were in the vending machines . Also the hygiene products were good too, not the best brands, but definitely worth it in a pinch.

I'm loving this. Anything that increases access to contraception and may inspire people to seek education and information is fabulous.

Fundies would have hated my college campus. Free condoms were placed in a HUGE basket in the student health center. Anyone on campus could walk right in and take as many as they wanted. I remember waiting for appointments with the doc and watching male and female students alike walk in and take more than one.

In Berlin they have condoms and 'Maybe Baby' pregnancy test kits in vending machines all round the city - the condoms make sense but I don't really understand the impulse buy pregnancy tests :lol:

Less judgement than buying them from a store, I would imagine. A young girl would be able to go and buy a pregnancy test without worrying about anyone finding out.

Heaven forbid we allow adults to have control over their own sex lives. Next, they're going to suggest that drug stores not carry contraception on the off chance that a 35 year old might use it.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.
