Clear and direct answer with a depth of detailed analysis and stats to back it up come from Fr Carrota, the Trad Priest blog.
In a wierd volte face, the GOP is fighting and clawing for OTC abortifacients (e.g. the Pill, Plan B, etc) and the Dems and Klan Barrenhood–the largest domestic terrorist group–are fighting AGAINST the measure. At least as far as who will pay for these carcinogenic abortifacients.
Naturally Sen Patty Murray (D-WA) and fellow abortoholics want more dead preborn babies and more womyn polluting their bodies with these high dose steroids. And GOP members led by some rookies like Cory Gardner (R-CO) and the two NC senators, are all for it, but not on the Obamacare ATM ride. Gardner, in fact, ran on the issue in his run last year for the Senate
The bill upholds requirements in the Affordable Care Act mandating access to prescription birth control covered by insurance companies, so over-the-counter birth control would be covered without new costs.
“I believe strongly that women should be able to get the comprehensive health care they need when they need it, without being charged extra, without asking permission and without politicians interfering,” Murray said.
So do Republicans, according to Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., who unveiled a GOP proposal late last month that also aims to make birth control pills available without a prescription. The bill makes good on a campaign pledge by Gardner in his successful election against incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Udall. The race focused almost singularly on women’s health care and reproductive rights.
Gardner’s bill would allow for over-the-counter birth control, and includes a proposal that would allow women to pay for it through health savings accounts. Gardner’s bill would put an age restriction for access to adults 18 years and above; Murray’s plan has no age restrictions.
This will mean more chemical abortions, more womyn contracting various cancers from these toxic steroids, and more health care costs related to the hundreds of side effects that womyn suffer from these abortifacients. And if approved, that will mean less follow up and care for womyn procuring these carcinogens OTC.
Way to go, GOP!
Although it may get some readings and generate some heat rather than light, the proposed bill in the OH Assembly–Abortion Inducing Drugs–will be DOA. Even if it were to pass the rigorous task of clearing the House and Senate, RINO Gov John “Janko” Kasich, busy getting ready for a presidential run, will also likely ignore it as well.
The bill only talks about the sole drug with an abortion indication–mifepristone–which is often used in combination with the protsaglandin misoprostol, the latter which increases contractions. the former which literally “starves” the developing baby of needed progesterone from mom early in the pregnancy.
The news release from Cincy RTL, while well intended, only addresses one other drug used as an abortifacient, methotrexate (MTX), a drug developed for cancer and also used in certain drug-resistant forms of thematoid arthritis.
It totally misses or intentionally ignores the other common abortifacients that makes some “pro lifers” squeemish and squirmy: the combination oral “contraceptive” Pill, Plan B (and its generic versions), ella (the chemical cousin of mifepristone…gasp!), Depo Provera, Implanon, various IUDs and so on…all ignored in the release and the bill. don’t want to offend those who are killing millions of preborn babies via their faux “contraceptive, now do we?
ESH guesses what the OH legislators and their non-pharmacist “consultants” at various pro life groups coulda-shoulda done was consult the real drug specialists in the pro life community the past 31 years, Pharmacists For Life International. ESH has confimed that never occured, a common snub by compromising pro life groups filled with “know nothings”. PFLI is a total protection, 100% pro-life group which doesn’t compromise on principles and that usually too much to bear by those who would, such as National RTL and Ohio RTL.
From PFLI’s main page on their website:
308,000,000 estimated deaths since Roe v Wade and Doe v Bolton Estimated killed by all means: chemical, mechanical and surgical abortion since 1973
More on PFLI’s website…you get the drift, check it all out there:
The great Springtime of Renewal promoted non stop by the modernist neocon Catholics, including all the way to the top, continues to sputter, falter and show continued signs of regression, not progression.
To think otherwise is to have the same psychiatric delusions of say, a Caitlyn Jenner. Just cause you want it don’t mean it will be so. If that were true, ESH would be the King of France. Yet we all know Hollande and his socialist friends won’t let ESH run things in Paris.
Read and weep. The Church in Amerikka is, and has been, missionary ground, if only the collegial conciliar fanatics would only have the same zeal for forming new vocations as they do for, say, ecumania and statements on the environment which they prefer to worship, rather than the Creator of that environment. Leaving them standing much as the profane, secular world that masonically worships man rather than the One, Triune God.
So Amerikka will import priests from Africa and Asia, if any remain after ISIS murdering ways. And some from places such as Poland, ravaged for decades by godless atheistic communism, now reeling as the West does from materialism, the flip side of communism.
On a positive note, despite the hostilities by the conciliar church leaders to conversion, a number of protestants (including former “ministers”) are making their way into the One True Church of Christ, several of them via the Byzantine and other Eastern Rites, where more sanity has prevailed since the revolution of Vatican II. But even there, all is not well. Ten years ago the Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostum–the Mass of the Byzantine Rites–changed the millenial Nicene Creed to remove that long time bogey man of the Orthodox world, the filioque, conceding that the Holy Ghost proceeds from only the Father.
Only in the Traditional Rites does one see growth in vocations since the 1960s. One example: St Thomas Aquinas Seminary is bursting at the seems so much, that the SSPX is poised to open a new huge seminary in rural Virginia, moving that operation from Winona, MN where it has been for almost 30 yrs because they just cannot hold all the young men seeking a solid orthodox training and the insurmountable obstacle to heresy found in the Tridentine Rite Holy Mass. It’s getting hard for the dicosese of Richmond, VA to ignore them anymore.
In Pittsburgh, the SSPX took back once Catholic Sts James Church in the city’s West End right from under the nose of Bishop Zubik, after the diocese closed it in 2004. Zubik’s “inclusive” response was nothing short of a woman scorned with a fury reserved only to the faithful of Christ’s only True Church.
So much mercy, so much caring, sharing and “new evangeliszation” examples adorn these remains of the Novus Ordo’s “square earth society”.
Please pray for the repose of the soul of this saintly priest who took his vows quite seriously, and worked tirelessly–at the cost of much calumny and vituperation against his person–for the Message of Our Lady of Fatima of repentance and conversion, and the still-to-be-performed consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary by the Holy Father in unison with all the world’s bishops at the same time.
|He never enriched himself from his aposolate and lived ascetically by today’s materialistic standards by many religious.
He was devoted to the Immemorial Tridentine Rite Mass as he progressed in years. He was fearless against attacks by enemies of the Faith, the Church and Our Lady, to Whom he was assiduously devoted.
ESH was fortunate to meet Fr Gruner several times, either at his own Center’s conferences or at one of the many times he spoke at Human Life International conferences.
|Requiescat in pace!

Father Nicholas Gruner
Requiescat in pace
By now you probably heard about the sudden death of Father Nicholas Gruner. He died of an apparent heart attack on April 29 around 7:00 pm while working at his office in Fort Erie.
Father Gruner was truly the world expert on Fatima. I can say this as one who worked closely with him for over 20 years. He was more knowledgeable on this subject, and on the true nature of the Fatima Message than anyone else. His devotion to Our Lady was strong and genuine.
Please remember Father Gruner in your prayers, a good personal friend and true Catholic Crusader.
In the Immaculate Heart,
Below is the announcement from the Fatima Center:
Rest in Peace
Father Nicholas Gruner
May 4, 1942 — April 29, 2015
The Management Team of the Fatima Center sadly announces the death of Father Nicholas Gruner, who passed away suddenly this evening.
Father died at his office, working to his last breath on the goals to which he dedicated his 38 years in the priesthood — the promotion of the Message of Fatima, especially the release of the full Third Secret and the Consecration of Russia to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart.
Details concerning the wake/visitation and funeral for Father will be announced in the upcoming days. For now, in your charity, please pray for Father and for his Apostolate, which will continue to seek to bring his life’s work to a successful conclusion.

We all know from expeirence in the abortion wars, that the abortoholics–those lovers of killing innocent preborn babies with glee but recoiling at, say, killing a caribou to survive–have wanted to impose THEIR immorality on the rest of normal, life loving everyday folks.
They did so in 1973 with the twin abortion decisions of Roe v Wade and Doe v Bolton. They did so with the 1963 Griswold v Connecticut “contraceptive” decision. And with many other lawsuits, to many to mention.
With Obamacare, socialized medicine, they want to ram “contraception” and abortion down everyone’s throat, to like it, AND to pay for it. Without apologies. Although some of those impositions are being rolled back–5 decisions now have upheld conscience religious rights of employers and others–many have not. And that doesn’t include at least 38 instances where the Kenyan kommie has rewritten Obamacare rules on his own, by fiat, by his diktat.
Count on it soon: as part of the Kenyan kommie’s war on Christianity and life, it will soon be mandated: kill or get out of pharmacy or medicine. Period.
See here to get an idea where this is heading. It’s parallel twin evil is making sodomites mainstream, loveless sewer “luv” without the requisite propagation of human life as happens with normal marriage within the institution meant only for one man, one woman.
We can look to a famous propagandist for his view on rights of conscience for health professionals:
Well, we now have two biosimilars approved in the US with the FDA’s marketing approval of Sandoz / Momenta’s copycat version of Copaxone for relapsing-forms of multiple sclerosis (RRMS), a chronic disease of the central nervous system characterized by inflammation and neurodegeneration.
Glatopa (which sounds like something ESH’s parents left behind in stari kraj) will be the real game changer in the world of biosimilars. Maybe.
The first biosimilar approved (also from Sandoz….. a copy of Amgen’s Neupogen) doesn’t and won’t have the same market-changing impact in a well-defined therapeutic category like MS – so this would be the one to watch, ESH thinks.
Çekaj! TEVA, the Israeli firm which is very steamed up about this copycat stealing their market share, is still likely to find yet more roadblocks to keep Glatopa off the market (even the US Supreme Court refused to stop Sandoz) – at least for a short while.
We know that the ‘naming’ convention issue has not yet been settled with the FDA. So will the package insert say the same as Copaxone – glatiramer acetate injection? Curious minds want to know! And, the regulations related to ‘interchangeability’ have yet to be issued by the FDA.
So, will Glatopa be listed as an A/B rated product? Or some other designation? In the article here there is a clear reference to being fully substitutable at the pharmacy level. (Remains to be seen.)
Also, what about all those states (we know the Kenyan kommie thinks there are 57) that have a say in pharmacy regulations and some even have legislation already passed making biosimilar launches very difficult as we have covered in earlier alerts.
Another important point from reimbursement standpoint and economic impact to health plans and governmental payers: the cost for Glatopa has not been released (that’s no surprise…. Sandoz still has to factor in all their legal expenses and other A&O costs to get this product to market).
That may be one of the most interesting elements of this journey to the biosimilar side.
