Just when it feels like the legal fight over access to Plan B couldn’t possibly get any more complicated, it does.
On Friday, Judge Edward Korman denied the Obama administration’s earlier request to delay his ruling to make Plan B available over-the-counter with no age restrictions. Then on Monday, the administration appealed Judge Korman’s order yet again.
Given the White House’s record on women’s reproductive rights, and the scientific evidence that Plan B is safe and effective for women and girls of all ages, it’s unclear just what the administration is doing at this point.
On Tuesday, Ilyse Hogue, the president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, joined NOW with Alex Wagner to discuss the latest in the tug-of-war over Plan B.
“It’s like every day is Freaky Friday on this story,” Hogue said. “The real question is whether we’re going to have the science based policies that we were promised by this administration,” she said, “what we know is that Plan B and other morning-after pills are safe.”
