So, the availability of pregnancy prevention pill Plan B to girls and women is actually about easing the fears of predators and rapists? Rapists, who by Ingraham's estimation, dose victims with Plan B then make a follow-up visit with them 12 hours later for the second pill. By the way, any adult could purchase Plan B, it was just made available to minors so it actually has no effect on Ingraham's theory that pedophiles were just waiting for the chance to dose the chocolate milk, so to speak.

As for her concern about the health of women and girls that take Plan B, Dr. Nancy Stanwood, chair of Physicians for Reproductive Health, said in a statement released today:

Multitudes of studies have demonstrated that emergency contraception is safe for use by teens of all ages and that teens, like adults, can follow the instructions safely. Too many women in the U.S. have gone without this necessary medication because the pharmacy counter is closed, they don’t have government-issued ID, or they’re under 17 and lack a prescription.
I think I'll put my faith in the physician and not the pundit.

Also on today's #TWiBRadio, we discussed more of Fox News' speculation theatre, a highly problematic federal judge, and smooth ahem body parts.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
