AMERICA'S "WMD FOR TOTS" PROGRAM
The Food and Drug Administration is up to their wicked deeds once again. Obviously not satisfied with the horrific carnage RU-486 has inflicted on America�s children, the FDA wants to enhance their �war against the unborn� arsenal with an upgrade to an existing chemical weapon called Plan B.
Plan B is a �morning after� pill that kills a child in the very early stages of pregnancy. For reasons that defy logic, the FDA is considering a plan that will give pregnant women access to this dangerous and powerful child-killing weapon - without a prescription!
Not surprisingly, the usual NARAL (Nuts And Reprobates Against Life) and Planned Parenthood types are on the committee that is lobbying the FDA to allow this easy access to Plan B. What is really unbelievable, even for the FDA, is that they are actually entertaining an opinion from such lunatics.
Fortunately, there was enough backlash created over the potential of finding such a deadly WMD in the candy section of the grocery store, that any Plan B decision by the FDA has been pushed back by several months. So while there is little doubt the FDA would jump at the chance to deliver another potent weapon to the legalized child-killing industry, there seems to be virtually no chance Plan B will be available over-the-counter any time soon.
However, the real story here is not whether the FDA will approve such easy access to a very dangerous drug, or even whether this could all be just a cheap election-year ploy.
The real story is about the pack of wild, pro-abortion radicals that have seized control of the FDA, and the tens of thousands of American children that have been murdered since September 2000 by an FDA approved chemical weapon called RU-486. It is also about whether President Bush, the man in charge of the FDA, is willing to reign in this completely out-of-control federal agency.
What kind of authority does the President have over the FDA? The FDA is an agency within the Department of Health and Human Services. HHS is part of the Executive Branch of the federal government, which gives President Bush the final authority and control over all FDA activities. Consequently, every single one of the 9,000 FDA employees works directly for the President!
Also, there is no mention of either drugs or food in the U.S. Constitution, so the courts have absolutely no jurisdiction over the FDA! The same goes for Congress, whose only control over the FDA is by the continual funding of this rogue, unconstitutional agency.
We would like to take President Bush at his word when he tells us he is pro-life. But the time for him to simply tell us he is pro-life is long past. It is time for him to actually do something about it. And since the RU-486 precedent was only four months old when he took office, this should be a really easy place for him to start.
Literally, a five-minute meeting between the President and the Secretary of HHS is all it would take to end the chemical war that has been declared on America�s unborn children.
If you do not believe the President could ban RU-486 without asking anyone for permission, just talk to any of the 11,000 air traffic controllers that were fired from the FAA by President Reagan back in August of 1981. That�s why they call it the Executive Branch!
Will a ban on chemical weapons appease those of us who mourn for each and every abortion victim, regardless of how they are killed? No, it really won�t. There are still going to be thousands of children killed every day by other equally barbaric abortion methods. But a ban on RU-486 would definitely be the first serious shot fired directly at the enemies of life during the 31-year abortion holocaust. It would also be the easiest shot to fire, since the courts could not do a thing about it.
One other positive aspect of a ban issued directly by the President is that it would not require any compromises, trade-offs or appeasements in order for it to be enacted. It would also be good chance to see the enemies of life howl for a change.
FDA approved chemical weapons are raining a hellish destruction down on America�s unborn children. And while President Bush has the power to end the RU-486 killing spree any time he chooses, his inaction speaks volumes about his commitment to ending the abortion holocaust. How much longer are we willing to wait for him to act?
We invaded Iraq to rid that country of what we claimed were massive stockpiles of WMD. (Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!) In the process of the invasion, we have sacrificed hundreds of American lives, spent hundreds of billions of dollars and we have killed tens of thousands of innocent Iraqis.
If we are willing to go to such extreme lengths to hunt for phantom WMD stockpiles we thought were hidden in a desert 8,000 miles away, one would think we could expend just a little bit of effort to eliminate the WMD stockpiles we know are right here in our own backyard.
