REGINA, Feb 1, 2001 (LSN.ca) – The abortifacient morning-after-pill, Plan B, is set to be dispensed without a doctor’s prescription in Saskatchewan this April. Ray Joubert, registrar of the Saskatchewan Pharmaceutical told the Globe and Mail yesterday that the drug will be available from pharmacists, but stocked behind the counter.
Plan B acts to make the mother’s body inhospitable to the human embryo (embryo – fertilized ovum – the first stage of human life) by weakening the uterine wall, thus not allowing implantation, leading to the death of the already conceived human being. Mark Beaudet, vice-president of Montreal-based Paladin Labs, the Canadian distributor of Plan B, said the drug costs $15.95, plus the pharmacist’s dispensing fee.
