MT. CLEMENS, Aug 19 ( – Macomb, Oakland and Wayne County have decided to forbid the counties’ Health Departments from prescribing the abortifacient PREVEN morning after pills.  Macomb County Commissioner Leon Drolet, explained, “I can’t tell the people in my county that you oppose abortion, but you are required to pay for this.” Ignoring the fury and misinformation from Planned Parenthood, the counties contend that the controversial drugs should not be a burden on taxpayers.
