Politics, pop culture, and self-deprecation

One less rational person in government. Awesome. Of course, not everyone agrees:

“Wendy Wright, policy director for Concerned Women for America and a critic of easier access to Plan B, welcomed Wood’s resignation.

‘Thank goodness there is now one less political activist at the FDA who puts radical feminist ideology above women’s health,’ she wrote in a statement. ‘Now that Susan Wood has some free time on her hands, she can look at the studies from countries that have made the morning-after pill available without a prescription. She’ll find it creates a public health hazard, with no decrease in pregnancies, no decrease in abortion, but a substantial increase in sexually transmitted diseases.'”

Not only is this not true, it’s not even logical. I’ve read many studies of emergency contraception, and never once have I seen anything to back up Wnedy Wright’s argument. Again, I’m at a loss for words.
