Fat People Got No Reason

Apologies to Randy Newman.

Mother Jones reports today that the abortion pill Plan B does not work if one is overweight.
The European manufacturer of an emergency contraceptive pill identical to Plan B, also known as the morning-after pill, will warn womenthat the drug is completely ineffective in women weighing more than 176 pounds, and begins to lose effectiveness in women weighing more than 165 pounds. HRA Pharma, which makes the European drug, Norlevo, asked European regulators for permission to change the drug's labeling after reviewing scientific research from 2011 that showed emergency contraceptives are prone to fail in women with higher body mass indexes.
