The FDA seems to be picking and choosing it’s approvals of drugs in an interesting way. The FDA will begin denying Avastin to breast cancer patients but will graciously offer the creator of the drug a final show trial of a hearing in 60 days. Cancer patients claim it saves their lives- but- is this about safety or about rationing?
But controversy is the name of the game for the FDA, they seem to be cutting out drugs that could save or prolong lives, while approving drugs that take lives.
Case in point: Ella One- a new abortion drug approved just weeks ago:
A controversial new form of abortion pills known as “ella” is now available to American women for the first time, the company selling the drug announced Wednesday.
Ella, which can prevent a pregnancy as many as five days after sex, can be obtained by U.S. women who get a prescription from a doctor, according to an announcement by Watson Pharmaceuticals Inc. of Morristown, N.J. The medication can even be obtained through an online pharmacy, the company said. The wholesale price will be $35.75.
The Food and Drug Administration approved Ella in August.
According to the largest woman’s group: Concerned Women for America: Ella or the (ulipristal) abortion drug
• The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is deliberately misleading women by mislabeling Ella as a contraceptive and not an abortion drug. While women may be comfortable using contraception, many would object to taking an abortion drug.
• Mislabeling Ella deceptively skirts federal laws on abortion. Because it is not defined as an abortion drug, it is likely that federal tax dollars will pay for it.
• Ella is chemically similar to the abortion drug RU-486 (mifepristone) and operates the same way. Ella blocks progesterone receptors, interfering with the uterine lining. Embryos cannot implant or, if already implanted, die from lack of nutrition.
• Advocates for Ella claim it only delays ovulation, but they refuse to acknowledge that the drug is — and acts — like RU-486.
• The FDA information for doctors admits Ella caused abortions in animals. It states, “Embryofetal loss was noted in all pregnant rats and in half of the pregnant rabbits …[Ella] caused pregnancy termination in 2/5 [of pregnant monkeys].”
• Human trials indicate that Ella may cause miscarriages or birth defects in babies that survive. Incredibly, FDA Advisory Committee members recommended that long-term studies not be undertaken to investigate the outcome of existing pregnancies (i.e. if the drug causes birth defects) because negative reports would likely outweigh positive. Instead, the FDA leaves it up to women to find out by experience. It admits on the drug label, “There is little information on whether ella would harm a developing baby.” The FDA put the drug company’s interests above the interest of patients.
And another abortion drug approved by the FDA is RU-486 and was approved without adequate trials and resulted in several women dying from a bacterial infection. Over 1,000 adverse events have been reported, including seven deaths. The FDA is treating Ella in the same careless manner, putting women at risk. CWA reports that, abortion providers flagrantly violate the FDA restrictions on RU-486. It is fully expected that abortionists will give Ella to women beyond the five-day approved usage period, taking advantage of its deadly capabilities to cause an abortion.
Back to Ella One:
• Trials indicate that frequent use of Ella may lead to high levels of toxicity. Yet, proper trials to discover what kind of complications could occur were not performed.
• Ella was tested on women above 16 years old. Yet it will be given to younger girls.
• Women will become victims to Ella being slipped to them without their knowledge or consent by boyfriends who do not want the woman to have a baby. This abuse has already occurred numerous times with other abortion-inducing drugs.
Women need a prescription for ella, but they can “keep a supply at home” — which means administration of the drug won’t necessarily be monitored to prevent someone from, say, taking an elevated dose after the recommended five days, which could result in the abortion of an implanted embryo. Reassurances along the lines that “it probably wouldn’t, if used correctly” are…not all that reassuring.
And then there is the question of who will be paying for Ella:
Critics are already concerned that ella’s approval as a contraceptive will make it eligible to receive federal tax subsidies, which are banned for the abortion pill RU-486. They also are concerned that ella will be included in the services that health plans will have to pay for under the new health-care overhaul law.
“By misclassifying ella as emergency contraception, this administration has paved the way to covertly allow federal funding for abortion,” said Rep. Christopher H. Smith (R-N.J.), who called on Obama to issue an executive order prohibiting federal funds from paying for ella.
The Family Research Council has compiled an article titled “Myth and Fact: The Truth about ella and How It Works” with more information. The gray area in the “it’s contraception, not an abortifacient” argument gets grayer all the time.
So now the FDA has approved a series of “Emergency Contraception” – pills that can be taken “after conception” which are in fact abortive, and they are marketing them as “contraception”.
In other words, they are redefining when life begins from “conception” to “implantation”, and our young people especially are being fooled.
Another such abortion pill approved by the FDA is called: PlanB.
Plan B prevents a pregnancy by administering high doses of a hormone that mimics progesterone. It works primarily by inhibiting the ovaries from producing eggs. Critics argue that it can also prevent a fertilized egg from implanting in the womb, which some consider equivalent to abortion.
And this does not take into account the many risks associated with the various birth control pills the FDA has approved without proper testing- read this: Dying for birth control?
So..we have to ask: Why is the FDA approving all these abortion drugs while pulling cancer drugs?
Can you say – Death Panels and Eugenic?
Just Say’n !
Historical Information on RU-486: Abortion pill RU-486 created as an inexpensive drug for eugenic “population control” has connection to Nazi gas Zyklon B
September 28, 2010, marked the ten-year anniversary of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) approval of Mifepristone (popularly known as RU-486).
These following quotes/facts are from the powerful documentary : Maafa21 which shows how the US government and other Elites are using abortion to limit black births:
When three pro-choice researchers investigated the original motive behind the creation of the abortion pill, RU486, what they discovered was that the scientific basis for it was actually developed in United States during the 1960s by the National Institutes of Health at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. In their 1991 book, these researchers claimed to have found data showing that this agency was looking for an inexpensive and effective drug to control the populations of foreign countries that the government had classified as “under-developed.” The abortion pill was to be tested in these environments and, if successful, the plan called for it to then be introduced into Black, Hispanic and Native-American communities in the United States.
After the abortion pill, RU486, was approved for sale in the U.S., the controversy surrounding it kept the abortion lobby from being able to find an American company to produce it. That forced them to look for a foreign manufacturer and, after an eight-year search, a company owned by the Chinese government agreed to manufacture the drug for the U.S. market. The company’s management made this decision after the Rockefeller Foundation agreed to provide financial backing for the project.
Minute 3 and 8 Minutes
Connection between Rockefeller and RU486. At the end of World War II, the German chemical manufacturer, I.G. Farben, was identified as the company that supplied the gas used in the Nazi concentration camps. The gas was called Zyklon-B and evidence later showed that Farben’s executives knew how it was being used. In fact, evidence was uncovered to indicate that Farben engineers had actually designed the gas chambers. This led to some of them being tried at Nuremberg for crimes against humanity including genocide and slavery.
After the war, I.G. Farben would change its name and become known as Hoechst AG. One of Hoechst’s subsidiaries, Roussel Uclaf, is the French company that developed RU486. The same company that produced the gas used in the Nazi death camps also produced the abortion pill RU-486
In June of 2006, shortly after a FOIA Act granted Judicial Watch uncovered government documents on RU-486, called “The Clinton RU-486 Files,” the Interim reported that, In his first official act as president, Clinton ordered the Department of Health and Human Services and the Food and Drug Administration to co-ordinate the marketing of abortion drug RU-486 on American soil.
Clinton had previously received advice from Ron Weddington, whose wife argued the pro-abortion side in the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade case. In a January 1992 letter supporting the legalization of RU-486, Weddington made a Brave New World-style pitch on socio-economic grounds, arguing: “Something’s got to be done very quickly. Twenty-six million food stamp recipients is more than the economy can stand.”
Weddington went on to write that the next president should “start immediately to eliminate the barely educated, unhealthy and poor segment of the country,” as “our survival depends upon our developing a population where everyone contributes. We don’t need more cannon fodder. We don’t need more parishioners. We don’t need more cheap labour. We don’t need more babies.”
The report brings to light a number of disturbing revelations, including the use of official U.S. political, economic and diplomatic pressure that was used to persuade the RU-486 manufacturer, Roussel Uclaf, to make the drug available to American consumers. In one confidential memo, then-HHS Secretary Donna Shalala mentioned that she and then-FDA Commissioner David Kessler personally changed Roussel Uclaf’s position.
Interestingly, the documents also show that Roussel Uclaf offered to give the RU-486 patent to the U.S. government at no cost, in order to protect itself from legal liability in case anything went wrong.
Clinton obtained the patent by writing an official letter to Roussel Uclaf, saying the U.S. required “safe and effective medical treatment,” and thanking the company on behalf of “the women of America.”
According to Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton, the drug has claimed the lives of 560,000 children and at least six women in the United States, in part because the Clinton administration pressured the FDA to circumvent the usual requirements for certifying a drug as “safe and effective” in order to bring RU-486 to market. “This dangerous abortion pill needs to be pulled off the market immediately,” he said.
From Maafa21, Exerts from the Letter Ron Weddington sent to President Bill Clinton (Clip below) “ … 26 Million food stamp recipients is more than the economy can stand.” • “… you can start immediately to eliminate the barely educated, unhealthy and poor segment of our country. No, I’m not advocating some sort of mass extinction of these unfortunate people. Crime, drugs and disease are already doing that.” • “I am not proposing that you send federal agents armed with Depo-Provera dart guns to the ghetto. You should use persuasion rather than coercion.” • “Our survival depends upon our developing a population where everyone contributes. We don’t need more cannon fodder. We don’t need more parishioners. We don’t need more cheap labor. We don’t need more poor babies.”
