#Fail on Birth Control from The Washington Post

| | Comments (5) | TrackBacks (0)

The fact-checking machine is broken at The Washington Post, as Michael Gerson's attack on birth-control coverage falsely claims that this coverage includes abortifacients. Wrong, wrong, wrong.

Check out our facts on emergency contraception (Plan B® and others) and why Gerson is wrong to equate contraception with abortion.

It's curious that someone claiming to make a moral argument would mislead readers.

BTW, this is the second day in a row that the Post has run a piece attacking birth-control coverage. Check out our response to yesterday's column from E.J. Dionne.

The Post is not the only entity attacking contraception. Politicians in Congress are taking aim at coverage of birth control--and that's why we're galvanizing our supporters to tell Congress to stop any attempt to take away birth control coverage from women.
