The federal government is reversing positions on availability of so-called “emergency contraception” to children. Between new FDA rules and judicial decisions, young girls will be able to buy Plan-B without talking to a pharmacist, getting permission from a parent, or even consulting a doctor; all they have to do is grab a box off the shelf and take it to the drugstore’s cash register.
Planned Parenthood, unsurprisingly, is praising these new developments. There’s a problem, however. There’s seems to be conflict at Planned Parenthood over what emergency contraception actually does.
