Laura Ingraham argued on Fox and Friends that the Obama administration's dropping prior objections and complying with a court order to allow over-the-counter emergency contraception without age restrictions is "a good deal for pedophiles" and statutory rapists, and a symptom of "this brave new world of women’s equality and—quote—reproductive health." Watch:
INGRAHAM: It’s a good deal for pedophiles, a good deal for people who commit statutory rape against young girls. If mothers and fathers across this country hear this and they think, ‘Well, I guess my daughter or her boyfriend or her rapist can go out to a pharmacy and get a bunch of, you know, hormone pills to give a little girl.’ We don’t really know the long-term effect of a spiking or dropping a little girl’s — in many cases a young woman’s or a little girl’s hormonal levels. It’s outrageous! These girls can’t get their ears pierced, they can’t take an Advil at school without parental permission. Yet, they can go into a pharmacy in this brave new world of women’s equality and — quote — reproductive health and get a morning after pill. I think it empowers men who want to abuse women.
