Liletta (levonorgestrel) Intrauterine Device – formerly Levosert
Company: Medicines360 and Actavis plc
Date of Approval: February 27, 2015
Treatment for: Contraception [abortifacient mechanism of action, chemically and mechanically]
Liletta (levonorgestrel) is a hormonal intrauterine device (IUD) for use by women to prevent pregnancy for up to three years. The basic mechanism of action is abortifacient by action of the progestin levonorgestrel–which is poor at supressing ovulation–and the mechanical irritation of the endometrium after junior has been conceived and implanted in the womb.

ESH’s only question is: why did it take so long for the 1st state to ban muitilating the murdered preborn baby? Where is OH on this with the RINO governor John Kasich, who won’t even push for the Heartbeat Bill in its second go around? Putz!
God bless Gov Sam Brownback (formerly Senator from KS)…he later tweeted he was proud to sign this bill. Taking notes, Kasich?
From CNA report:
Kansas became on Tuesday the first state to ban abortions by a procedure known as “dilation and evacuation,” which is common during second-trimester abortions and is called “dismemberment abortion” in the law.
Local pro-life advocates say the legislation is an opportunity to save the unborn from a horrific procedure, while providing a model for other states.
“Some states have to take the lead. We’re proud to be one of those states,” Kathy Ostrowski, legislative director of Kansans for Life, told CNA April 8. “With very solid, carefully constructed laws I think we really can make a difference.”
The procedure is used in about 600 abortions in Kansas annually, about nine percent of all abortions performed there, the Topeka Capital-Journal reports.
Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback on April 7 said he was proud to sign a bill that protects life “at its most vulnerable stage,” and noted bipartisan support for the bill.
The legislation, known as the Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act, bans physicians from “knowingly dismembering a living unborn child and extracting such unborn child one piece at a time from the uterus through the use of clamps, grasping forceps, tongs, scissors or similar instruments that… grasp a portion of the unborn child’s body in order to cut or rip it off.”
The law contains an exemption for medical emergencies or when a pregnant woman’s life is in danger. It also makes clear that a woman who seeks a dismemberment abortion is not liable under law.
The law allows civil action against physicians who perform dismemberment abortions in violation of the law.
Michael Schuttloffel, executive director of Kansas Catholic Conference, said the conference is “very, very pleased” to put a stop to the procedure in Kansas.
“We’d like to see other states follow our lead,” he told CNA.
The Kansas House of Representatives passed the bill by a vote of 98-26, while the Senate passed the bill by a vote of 31-9.
Planned Parenthood Advocates of Kansas and Mid-Missouri, the local affiliate of the largest abortion provider in the U.S., said April 7 the law was “atrocious,” claiming that Kansas “continues to be an outlier on issues both fiscal and social.” It said the law denied health care access to women and hindered their ability to make decisions.
Schuttloffel lamented that the bill was necessary and that some people still opposed the law.
“It just defies belief that people would publicly get up and insist that people in Kansas be allowed to rip the arms and legs off of unborn children,” he said.
He thought the abortion debate had become “disconnected from the reality of abortion” and legislation like the Kansas law can “help shock people out of complacency.” He said that even many pro-life Kansans couldn’t believe the procedure was happening in their state.
“When it comes to this particular kind of abortion, people needed to hear exactly what was being done and what was being done: second trimester babies, we’re talking three, four, five months along in pregnancy, were being torn apart, limb from limb,” Schuttloffel continued. “There’s evidence that suggests the unborn child feels pain at that point. It’s just horrific.”
In Ostrowski’s view, the U.S. Supreme Court has indicated such bills should be passed.
The court, in 2007’s Gonzales v. Carhart, described the type of late-term abortion involved as “brutal,” and found that the state has an interest in both protecting the integrity of the medical profession and “to show its profound respect for the life within the woman.”
She said Kansas is a “very pro-life state,” with over 50 locations supporting pregnant women who have complications or who lack family support.
“We’re bringing people into the pro-life movement. And now we’re passing laws with an excellent state legislature and a pro-life governor.”
Other states with this kind of climate and pro-life support should pass these laws, Ostrowski said.
The Oklahoma legislature is considering a similar bill, as are Missouri and South Carolina.
That’s the logical extension of the way the sodomites and the lobby on the left want to force down the throats of say, Menories Pizza in Indiana.
The faux left narrative of everyone who disagrees with the sewer pervert lifestyle is a hater has been overtly proven as false. Except to those with the mental disease of liberalism. But take heart! Economical relief is on the way as Abilify will have a generic competitor (actually at least 5 of them) come Apr 20th.
Pharmer says it succinctly this morning:
“Conservatives should keep in mind that the media charade surrounding the Indiana RFRA is a bogus thing, coming mostly from the leftist democrats. It’s a tool to make conservative voters lose respect for republican wimps, and stay home from the elections. The militant/intolerant Gaystapo, so prominently celebrated by the media, is a relatively small group.”
And don’t forget ESH’s insight that the above is driven by the freemasons with their little plots hatched in the lodges. No wonder they miss NFL games and the Final Four championship.

There…ESH has called Hilary the Horrible all that and a bag of chips!
The Clintonista handlers have threatened the leftist NY Times and other drive by state run media with the worst of deaths if they use these words. Soviet-style. It would make the mafia blush.
This is how leftists work, trying to supress free speech and the markeplace of ideas and opinions for those who would dare to disagree with them over the Benghazi killer. The Whitewater queen. The handler of Bimbo eruptions. She, who has selective memories when they are discomforting. Who took off from the White House in 2001 with thousands of dollars of furniture paid for by the sucker American taxpayer.
“We will be watching, reading, listening and protesting coded sexism,” the pro-Hillary group HRC Super Volunteers warned The New York Times’ Amy Chozick Wednesday.
HRC Super Volunteers have been laying in wait for Clinton to announce her long anticipated, not so secret candidacy for Prez, with one organizer of the independent group boasting to colleagues that “our supervols tended to be more loyal to HRC than hired staff who worried about getting a job after the campaign. I think back to the staff party in Denver when me, Ahmed, and another top vol were the only ones with Hillary buttons.”
On gard! Be prepared for the HRC war on womyn!
Show you care about women in a crisis pregnancy who are trying to do the right thing for their preborn babies; donate to the PFLI GoFundMe campaign today…any amount is gratefully appreciated!
Pharmacists For Life International is the only pharmacy association which is exclusively 100% total protection pro-life, something no other pharmacy organization can say (or would have the courage to say!). PFLI is a worldwide apostolate of thousands of pharmacists, plus hundreds of other health professionals, pharmacy students, interns, pharmacy technicians, and the public, in the USA, Canada and worldwide. We are represented on all of the continents except Antarctica, with active regional coordinators in many states and nations.

PFLI’s mission is to make pharmacy once again a life-saving profession, a mooring from which it has drifted. As part of this commitment, PFLI is actively involved in educating pharmacists, nurses, physicians and other health professionals; educating the general public; serving pregnancy care centers; providing an economical speakers bureau; providing pharmaceutical cognitive services and consulting services; offering a toll-free contact phone number; providing on-line Internet and e-mail services; and providing many other benefits for members and non-members, pharmacists, lay persons, and students.
PFLI was founded in Cleveland, OH by four pharmacists of conscience. PFLI’s founding statement from May 1984 states: “PFLI defends, upholds and protects the sanctity of all human life from conception to natural death, regardless of age, biological stage, handicap or place of residence.”
You have read here and in other venues, the long and successful legal battle of the Storman family of pharmacies in WA state the past few years. they took on the abortoholic pols and won.
However, that has set them back around $140K in legal bills. This is a great way to give alms during Holy Lent, and help a stalwart pro-life family chain of pharmacies overcome the culture of death on the Left coast.
Fropm Pharmer’s blog a few weeks ago:
“The Stormans Family has been battling the coercive leftist abortion supporters for YEARS, regarding their right to refuse to dispense certain types of birth control which have abortive mechanisms of action. They won their case at home, but are being soaked for legal fees as their First Amendment case is being appealed to the 9th Circuit Court. Read more about the appeal at LifeNews.
“There’s a Go Fund Me campaign to help out this family, and allow them to stay true to their religious and ethical beliefs as they practice pro-life pharmacy.
“Please understand that the primary drug in question, levonorgestrel, or Plan B One-Step is now an over the counter drug. The entire environment of practice regarding this drug entity has changed while the Stormans legal battle has been going on. In addition, it has been established that Plan B is ineffective for American women of average size. ( Learn more at the Chemical Abortion page of this blog.) The pharmacists who refuse to dispense Plan B have effectively been protecting these women from being sold a bogus “remedy”. The point of continued legal persecution of this family is moot.
In what can only be called child abuse of the worst kind, it has been revealed that at least 609 young girls under the age of 16 in N Ireland have been inserted with abortifacient progestin rods, often without parental knowledge or approval.
An 11-year-old is among more than 600 girls under the age of 16 in Northern Ireland given contraceptive implants in the last five years.
Rods inserted into the arm release hormones to stop egg production and prevent pregnancy.
While the age of consent is 16, parental consent for the treatment is not legally needed as long as young people are capable of understanding it.
Health trusts provided the figures to BBC Radio Ulster’s Nolan Show.
Overall, 609 under-16s received implants in the past five years, although one trust could only provide figures for last year:
- In the Western Trust, 237 girls were treated (177 were aged 15; 48 were aged 14; 11 were aged 13 and one was aged 11)
- Joint figures covering the Belfast and South Eastern trusts show 207 girls under 16 received the treatment (they say their data only additionally records under 14s, of which there were six 13-year-olds who were referred to follow-up sexual and reproductive health meetings)
- In the Northern Trust, 150 under-16s were treated (the breakdown of girls’ ages was only available from 2012 – since then, 30 girls were aged 15; 21 were 14-years-old; and one was aged 13)
- The Southern Trust could only provide figures for the past year: in total, 15 under 16s received the treatment (10 were aged 15; three were aged 14; and two were 13)
It is not clear what the personal circumstances are of the individual girls who were seeking treatment. It is unknown if the government, which is often complicit or promoting this child abuse, will investigate and/or prosecute these perps who destroy the innocence of young girls and subject them to class I carcinogens, as defined by the WHO.
Said long time bench researcher and philosopher professor Dr Dianne Irving, “What are the long term effects if a girl’s ovaries are hormonally prevented from producing ‘eggs’? Would it eventually leave her infertile? What if her ovaries do produced eggs and are fertilized? Presumably the hormones in these arm inserts prevent the new embryo still in the fallopian tube from implanting or kills it after implanting (abortifacient). Where’s the data? Human traffickers must love this. Probably know how to insert [the rods] themselves.”
