Safe pills?

"This is a pill proved safe and effective for all ages."

That’s Ellen Goodman’s belief about the Morning After Pill (MAP or "Plan B"). I’d say she’s "misinformed" but she isn’t: I’ve written her before about the valid scientific research published by the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) in its Internal Medicine Archives, and in another study, commissioned by the World Health Organisation, published in the UK’s equivalent, The Lancet. We wrote about the increased blood clot and cervical cancer risks from the standard birth control pills in this recent post.

This research, she ignores.
