Shippensburg University sells Plan B pills via Vending Machine
The vending machine was placed on campus about two years ago and dispenses “day after” pills for $25. This pill terminates the pregnancy by chemically preventing the fertilized egg from implanting and thereby inducing an abortion.
Editor: This is an important bellweather of our future: First just one college. Then all colleges, then drug stores and super markets. We’ve seen the pattern elsewhere.
Soon Plan B will be as readily available as chewing gum with frightening social implications: Sexual predatory practices will be more easily hidden. Parents will be totally in the dark when a teen-ager uses the drug. The impetus for using condoms will be reduced, increasing the number of pregnancies and subsequent abortions – plus sexually transmitted diseases.
The impact will not be evident immediately. But, 25 years from now, don’t be surprised if there is a significant spike in women’s illnesses such as breast cancer due to undisciplined use of the drug.
