Statement by Ms. Foundation President and CEO Anika Rahman Regarding Mechanism of Action of Emergency Contraception

Jun 06, 2012, 13:54 ET from Ms. Foundation for Women


NEW YORK, June 6, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "The New York Times' examination of scientific research, which found that emergency contraception does not prevent implantation but rather delays ovulation, reaffirms what reproductive health and women's rights advocates have long understood.

"The Ms. Foundation embraces this scientific validation that emergency contraception is exactly what the term says – another form of contraception.

"The right wing can no longer mask their anti-women conspiracy behind inflammatory rhetoric and unscientific claims."
