Because Nothing Kicks So Much Ass as Taking Emergency Contraception
According to a Colorado State Senator, emergency contraception is just so enticing, women will be faking rapes to get it. Nice. (via Think Progress)
For the record, Plan B side effects can include nausea, vomiting, dizziness, exhaustion, headaches, abdominal pain and unexpected bleeding. Most report no side effects and they only last a day or two -- it's safe. Still, sounds like a good time, no?
Stats I have read somewhere suggest that less than 2% of reported rapes are untrue. But the majority of rapes are unreported.
Bottom line: compared to the problem of rape, we don't have a problem with women lying about rape. Plan B is safe and legal and approved by the FDA (if not always pleasant feeling). When a woman asks for it, she should get it. It's not an abortion pill. It's contraception.
