Speaking of birth control

Of course, all those women should just make lemonade out of lemons and give birth – because obviously, God wants them to do it:

Around one million packets of birth control tablets are being recalled in the US, as they might not prevent pregnancy.

The pharmaceutical company Pfizer said a “packaging error” meant the doses were not correct.

It said the tablets did not pose any health dangers, but there was a risk of “unintended pregnancy”.

Pfizer is advising women affected to use non-hormonal forms of contraception immediately.

Fourteen lots of Lo/Ovral-28 tablets and 14 lots of Norgestrel and ethinyl estradiol tablets have been recalled. The lot numbers have been published on the company’s website.

  1. Could an Evangeligal Christian be running Pfizer these day’s? Seems hard to believe that the formula was changed in error or that Pfizer has no quality control department??

  2. This kind of mess could have been engineered at a much lower level. If more than one drug is made on the line, just set the ingredient levels a bit “off” and, ta dah!, lots of women faced with unexpected pregnancies.

    Pfizer makes your drugs? Better ask for a quality check!

    This is…a bad, bad mistake. Or worse.
