Dannenfelser Responds to Plan B Decision

On Tuesday evening, SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser responded to the Obama Administration’s decision to drop any objection to a federal judge’s decision to make the “morning after pill” available without a prescription, even to children:

“This is a post-election reality check. Pre-election there was a nod to compassion and parent-centered protection of girls. Post-election, the ideology is clear: once a young girl becomes sexually active, she should be on her own to handle her ‘reproductive decisions.’ Parents disagree. This is a dangerous about-face for the Obama administration which previously seemed to agree that requiring a doctor’s prescription for potentially dangerous drugs was simply common sense. This decision endangers young girls by removing the protection that comes along with doctors and parents. Only abortion extremists rejoice at this news which has nothing to do with the health of children.”
