Wilberforce, Bonhoeffer, & Metaxas

A very funny guy, Eric Metaxas, on a very serious subject—standing up for those thought to be less than human.

Metaxas addressed Obama, Biden, Pelosi and others present at the National Prayer Breakfast on February 2nd on subjects ranging from writing to history to his personal faith journey.

"Morning after pill" for minors being considered in the Assembly Health Committee today

THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEMBLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  1    Section 1. Short title. This act shall be known and may  be  cited  as

  2  the "unintended pregnancy prevention act".

  3    S  2.  Legislative  findings. The United States Food and Drug Adminis-

  4  tration (FDA) has declared emergency contraceptive pills to be safe  and

  5  effective in preventing pregnancy when used within 72 hours after unpro-

  6  tected  intercourse. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecolo-

  7  gists and the American College of Nurse-Midwives  state  that  emergency

  8  contraception  (EC)  is  so  safe, and using it quickly is so important,

  9  that it should be available over the counter,  without  a  prescription.

10  They also emphasize the need for unimpeded access to EC for all women of

11  reproductive  age.  However,  although  there  are no medical reasons to

12  limit provision of EC, the FDA only approved non-prescription access for

13  women 18 years and older....
