Graham: Plan B 'Makes Teenage Sex Easier'
Topic: NewsBusters

Tim Graham asserts in the headline of a March 24 NewsBusters post that "liberals" are "making teenage sex easier" by supporting a ruling ordering the FDA to make the Plan B morning-after pill available to 17-year-old girls.

Huh? The existence of emergency contraception doesn't make sex "easier" for 17-year-olds or anyone else. Indeed, Graham offers no evidence that emergency contraception was a deciding factor for any couple, teen or otherwise, deciding to engage in sexual activity.

Graham tried to alternatively frame things by claiming that "making high doses of contraceptive medicines available to high-school juniors is in part a social decision about child sexual activity without parental consent." But that doesn't explain his headline's contention that Plan B "mak[es] teenage sex easier."
