Morning-After Pill Draws Catholic Concerns

 

Frances Kissling, president of Catholics for a Free Choice in Washington, D.C., said the idea of testing a rape victim to determine if she is ovulating before deciding whether to prescribe Plan B is “to the far right of any theological or medical arguments related to emergency contraception.”

“A woman who has been raped should be given comprehensive treatment in the first place she goes. She should not need to be referred for emergency contraception,” Kissling said. “If that hospital cannot provide her with the services she needs, they should be ashamed of themselves.”
