Pill price hike rolled back

Ortho-McNeil has announced that it’s rolling back the $18 price hike for birth control pills. Which is great news, because the price increase impacted 4,500 family planning clinics nationally.
The company has not said how much it will be lowering the price, but an official pledged Ortho would “be the lowest cost provider of oral contraceptives to public health services.” Nice.

I heart Vermont

Vermont teens will be able to get emergency contraception over-the-counter despite the FDA’s decision to only provide the drug to adults.

The FDA ruled on Thursday that Plan B, also known as “the morning-after pill,” can be sold to women 18 and older without a prescription, but women 17 and younger must still get a doctor’s prescription to get the drug.
Nancy Mosher, president and chief executive of Planned Parenthood of Northern New England, said Vermont legislation passed this year set up a third track for acquiring the drug, aside from getting a doctor’s prescription or purchasing medicine over the counter.
The bill set up a “collaborative practice” process allowing pharmacists who receive special training to dispense Plan B to ...

Happy Birthday Vanessa!


Just wanted to give a birthday shout out to my little sis (she hates when I call her that) Vanessa. She’s 26 years-old today, such an old lady. It seems like only yesterday we were fighting in the backseat of the car over staying on our respective sides. Love you, Viso.
Show Vanessa some birthday love in comments…she’s stressy these days.
And thanks to all the blogger folk who came to celebrate last week!

US women feel financially shaky.

No shit. I love how these articles talk about women working like it happened yesterday, as though working class women haven’t been working for a while (not to mention that work in the house is WORK). But let me not digress. This study found women are not feeling too good about their financial state.

When asked “How secure do you feel financially?” just 10 percent of the women respondents said they felt extremely secure, the survey found. Fifty-seven percent said they felt somewhat secure, and 33 percent said they didn’t feel secure at all.
Women’s feelings about money are important because they are increasingly likely to find themselves responsible for managing their own financial affairs. Some never marry, others outlive husbands ...

Nice one.

Like most things, immigration is a feminist issue, so when I read this I had to write about it. Not that I would expect anything better from Pat Buchanan, but to say on CNN that immigrants are making the United States “a polyglot boarding house for the world, a tangle of squabbling minorities” is just not okay. Sorry.

South African women prefer shopping to sex.

This is just too funny (and a little sad).

Of women who took part in a “Fantasy Survey” promoted by a drinks company, 45% said they valued shopping over sex. Only 26% voted the other way round.
Three quarters of the women who took part described themselves as having a shoe fetish while 70% said they did not have enough clothes in their wardrobes. Almost half (48%) of women surveyed said men had no real understanding of their needs and desires.

Capitalist desire to replace dissatisfaction in sexual desire. Tragic! The survey also found that 63% of respondents felt that the world would be a more peaceful place if women were in charge. I think the world would be a more peaceful ...
