Sex-based Cults

This is just too funny not to post, and it goes along with my post about the FDA becoming a faith-based, puritanical administration think-tank.

As you may know, the FDA is stalling the approval of the emergency contraceptive Plan B because it prevents fertilization and every sperm is sacred. Anyway, lest you think that the FDA is irrationally overstepping its bounds here, let us listen to the very serious fears of Acting FDA Deputy Commissioner for Operations, Janet Woodcock. And yes, that's her name.

In regards to an FDA memo released during the discovery process, Dr. Curtis Rosebraugh, an agency medical officer, wrote: "As an example, she stated that we could not anticipate, or prevent extreme promiscuous behaviors such as the medication taking on an 'urban legend' status that would lead adolescents to form sex-based cults centered around the use of Plan B."

Proving once again that government officials are more interested than NAMBLA with the genitals of adolescents. Does anyone know what a "sex-based cult" is? Is the administration such born-again wackos that they think anyone having sex outside of marriage must be in a cult of some sort? And do kids really need FDA approval to be horny?

And who says that government shouldn't try to regulate the sexual morality of adult women?

Actually, the truth is that a Conservative is someone who believes that the state should regulate morality, and a Liberal is someone who believes that the state should regulate the economy and race relations. And me, I believe that the state should stick to regulating itself.
