When Poisons Are Mislabeled

We recently received a note asking about a particular "birth control" product being sold by Walmart. However, the product in question is less a prophylactic than it is an abortifacient. Thus, we sent our friend this note:

Dear -----,

The pill you are talking about is "Plan B One Step."  It went out on the shelves last July.  It is usually in the aisle next to condoms, tampons and sanitary napkins, instead of behind the pharmacy counters.  Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, Target, etc. all put it out and now anyone can buy it. 

What exactly is the deal with Plan B? Well, it isn't good. In fact, it's dastardly...and deadly.

Below are some links to pieces Denny did on the blog about the Plan B pill. Thanks for the inquiry.
