Pill propelled into abortion debate
Evidently, some anti-abortion groups are working to curb sales of birth control pills. Lisa Boyd, of Planned Parenthood, summarizes the situation in Wisconsin:
“They’ve done so much with outlawing and restricting access to abortion that they’ve set their sights on birth control because there’s nothing else really they can do to further restrict abortion here in Wisconsin,” Ms Boyce says.
“Which is counter-intuitive because if you’re against abortion in the least you’d think you would see the value in enhancing access birth control, the very means women look to preventing pregnancy and the need for abortion.”
