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.”
Father Haley, a priest in the diocese of Arlington, VA, has been permanently suspended by Bishop Paul Loverde for testifying in a legal deposition about the immoral practices of his fellow diocesan clergy. In a formal notice to Haley, given on October 28, 2002, Bishop Loverde stated that Haley was guilty of violating an order for him not to publicize priestly wrongdoing in order “to avoid scandal, to maintain ecclesiastical discipline and to protect the reputation and privacy of both the faithful and priests of this diocese.” [As quoted in The Washington Times, November 13, 2002.]
In fact Father Haley never went public with any of his incriminating information. For years he went privately to Bishop Loverde, not just with his complaints, but with indisputable evidence of clergy immorality in his diocese. Bishop Loverde’s reference to Haley “publicizing priestly wrongdoing” concerns deposition testimony given by Father Haley pursuant to a law suit brought against Bishop Loverde and his diocese by a parishioner, James Lambert. The suit alleged diocesan negligence in failing to remove an obviously unfit priest who had given public scandal for years. [The lawsuit was eventually dismissed for failing to comply with the statute of limitations.]
Having exposed the perverted sodomites of the lavendar mafia , now he must suffer in virtual silence. Pray for this courageous priests, and all proests, that they may faithfully discharge their duties and vows.
In a spectacularly courageous move, a Norfolk, VA priest has cut off his local affiliated Knights of Columbus council which has procured abortoholic Dem Gov Terry McAuliffe as the “grand marshal” of their upcoming St Patrick’s Day parade next week.
The council, working behind the back of the pastor and mendaciously stating they would remove McAuliffe from the parade, shows a continuin religious scnadal and cancer among many K of C councils that coddle and protect abortoholic and pro-sodomite politicians who claim to be “catholic”.
The priest consulted with the local ordinary before acting.
“Governor McAuliffe stands contrary to the Catholic Church in not one but many of the most essential teachings of the Church in the political arena,” the Norfolk pastor wrote in a March 5 letter to parishioners, distributed at Sunday Mass on March 8. “He himself promised to be a ‘brick wall’ against restrictions on abortion, has taken away commonsense protections for women in abortion facilities and lowered safety standards, and consistently takes money from pro-abortion lobbying groups.”
“Further, he not only favors the re-definition of marriage, he himself performed a gay ‘marriage’ as soon as a court overturned the law of the Commonwealth,” [ESH emphasis] Father Beeman wrote. “Marriage and Life are two of the foundational efforts of the Knights of Columbus as a national organization, so it is dumbfounding how the Knights could then decide to honor the Governor.”
Father Beeman was acting on the advice of Richmond Bishop Francis DiLorenzo in contacting the state council, he said, as well as in making the national office aware of the situation.
He had written the council last year at the request of one of the bishop’s vicars to request the committee keep the parade a non-political event and not honor any political candidate, office holder or former office holder above the city level.
MCAuliffe also led a delegation recently promoting closer ties to the communist dictatorship in Cuba.
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.

FDA approves first biosimilar product filgrastim-sndz
FDA News Release (03/06/15)
ESH is pleased to report that the FDA approved Friday filgrastim-sndz (Zarxio—Sandoz), the first approved biosimilar product in the United States. The drug is biosimilar to filgrastim (Neupogen—Amgen), which was licensed in 1991. Filgrastim-sndz — which is approved for the same indications as Amgen’s drug — can be prescribed for patients with cancer receiving myelosuppressive chemotherapy; patients with acute myeloid leukemia receiving induction or consolidation chemotherapy; patients with cancer undergoing… Read More
The drug is made by Sandoz, formerly a 120 yr old Swiss drug firm that created the hallucinogenic drug LSD in the 1940s/50s when searching for psychotropics drugs that eventually led to its then-blockbuster, Mellaril, inter alia. Sandoz, which strictly makes generics now, has been part of conglomerate Novartis for several decades now. It also encompasses the former CIBA-Geigy.
Novartis manufactures such drugs as clozapine (Clozaril), diclofenac (Voltaren), carbamazepine (Tegretol), valsartan (Diovan) and imatinib mesylate (Gleevec/Glivec). Additional agents include cyclosporin (Neoral/Sandimmun), letrozole (Femara), methylphenidate (Ritalin), terbinafine (Lamisil), and others.
In 1996, Ciba-Geigy merged with Sandoz, and the pharmaceutical and agrochemical divisions of both companies formed Novartis as an independent entity. Other Ciba-Geigy and Sandoz businesses were sold, or like Ciba Specialty Chemicals, spun off as independent companies. The Sandoz brand disappeared for 3 years, but was revived in 2003 when Novartis consolidated its generic drugs businesses into a single subsidiary and named it Sandoz. Novartis divested its agrochemical and genetically modified crops business in 2000 with the spinout of Syngenta in partnership with AstraZeneca, which also divested its agrochemical business.
The first barrier has finally been broken in the patent monopolies Big Pharma-Biotech has had in the faster growing and most expensive part of the drug industry. Teva has been, so far successfully, blocking biosimilar copies of its MS drug, Copaxone.
ESH instructs readers to look for that barrier to be broken later this year.
Pharmacist Steve, he of blogging phame, poses several questions that go to the heart of the totally necessary rights of conscience for pharmacists and all health care professionals as the left wing death machine tightens its grips on who will live, who will die and who will be allowed to earn a living when they resist this evil:
From his blog last Saturday 2/21/15, ESH emphasis on the abortifacient Plan B:
“Can you imagine this… WALGREENS cannot tell a Pharmacist to fill or not fill a control Rx that they are not comfortable with…but.. WALGREENS have fired Pharmacists who are “not comfortable” providing vaccinations or Plan B ..
“Does this suggest that Walgreens does have some influence over what prescriptions/products Pharmacists are allowed to fill or decline.. and since the above two categories do not include controlled meds.. would suggest that pts who have a medical necessity for controlled meds are being discriminated against?”
Pharmacist Steve asks the same question that pharmacists with a conscience have been asking and demanding for well now 30 years, those who will not participate in the killing machine of the omnipotent, godless secular state, driven by freemasonic thinking, in killing innocent preborns, or elderly ill patients. They are all patients, all with lives that intrinsically matter and are beyond any demands of life and death that can be made by the death squads of the present Regime, or any subsequent regime.
WAGS started their firing spree of pharmacists with a conscience almost 10 yrs ago in their hometown of Chicago, at the behest of now imprisoned Rod “Slobodan” Blagojevich, he who had a law passed, and overturned several times, that violated pharmacist rights of conscience and principles of freedom of religion under both IL and US constitutions.
Has WAGS not learned its lesson yet? Will they continue to be bad actors now that they have bought UK based Boots so they can avoid paying US taxes? Can pharmacists make professional judgment decisions, but yet fill any order placed before them, something one could arguably train a monkey to do?
