On this episode of Reality Cast, a lawyer from the Center for Reproductive Rights explains the latest developments in the fight to make Plan B available over-the-counter without age restrictions, anti-choicers react to the new Plan B regulations, and unsurprisingly they freak out over President Obama’s talk at Planned Parenthood.
Continuing to fight science and common sense on Plan B isn’t serving anyone’s interests. Pro-choicers are mad, anti-choicers aren’t placated, and women are hurt in the process. So why does the Obama administration insist on keeping up this pointless fight?
Contraception is basic preventive health care for women—a simple truth that is too often lost in our political discourse. This video puts key facts front and center: Proper timing and spacing of births leads to healthier pregnancies; contraception, when used consistently, is highly effective; and cost can be a barrier to a woman using the contraceptive method that’s right for her. This video was created by the Guttmacher Institute, a leading research and policy organization on sexual and reproductive health.
A federal court judge Friday refused to grant an extension of time to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in a long-running case concerning access to emergency contraception.
The debate is characterized by anti-abortion anxiety and aversion to subsidized contraception.
On this episode of Reality Cast, I’ll be interviewing the author of a new book called Generation Roe.

The Obama administration’s newest plan to make emergency contraception over-the-counter to some groups and not others only creates more confusion and a new set of barriers to access. I guess this administration would rather play Russian Roulette with teen pregnancy than make it easier to prevent.
In a dismaying move, the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) has proposed changes to the guidelines for family medicine residency programs removing the requirement that residents learn to provide contraception.
Ohio anti-choicers would rather that women get misinformation than real reproductive health care.
This hilarious SNL skit highlights absurd marketing techniques aimed at women while underscoring the lack of regard for women’s birth control and the lack of emphasis on women’s comfort in today’s society – even when it comes to things being inserted inside of women’s vaginas.
