For too many women, it looks like Plan B is becoming plan A. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. Surgical abortions may be dropping, but the number of chemical abortions has never been higher! According to a new survey, as many as 11% of sexually active women are using the morning-after pill called Plan B. That's 5.8 million--and about half of them used the drug instead of regular birth control. Unfortunately, that's not safe for them--or the innocent life they could be carrying. These pills may prevent a pregnancy, but they'll never prevent an STD. Based on this survey, a lot of girls are having unsafe sex because they think Plan B will protect them. It won't. Nothing in this drug can retroactively guard against sexually transmitted disease. That's as backwards as telling people to buckle their seatbelts after they get where they're going. And all too often, where they're going is a dead-end for their baby--and their health.
