RUSH: Yesterday we learned that a federal judge had authorized the over-the-counter sale of the morning-after birth control pill to 15-year-old girls. The same 15-year-old girls who in many places cannot legally have a bottle of Advil with them in school, are now entirely authorized to walk into a pharmacy anywhere and pick up the morning-after birth control pill. The FDA actually authorized the 15-year-olds. The judge didn’t want any age limit at all, if you want to know the truth. The judge didn’t want any age limit. The FDA set the age limit at 15. If the FDA had not stepped in, a 10-year-old could have walked in and picked up the morning-after birth control pill.
As I said yesterday, we spent a lot of time on this, you really need to ask yourself. This is Democrat Party initiative. It’s a political initiative. This is not health related. This is not medicinal in any way. This is political and have to ask yourself — I think a lot of people did yesterday, when I framed it this way — what in the world does the Democrat Party care about this for? And make no mistake, it’s the Democrat Party and their feminist supporters that are pushing this. Why? What could they possibly have in mind here? Why would the Democrat Party want your 15-year-old girl or 10-year-old girl to be able to go to a drugstore and get a morning-after birth control pill, to have a morning after abortion, just to make sure that what happened the night before didn’t take.
