"Anti-Choice Activists Want Graphic Anti-Abortion Labels On Contraceptives"

In light of the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) new graphic warning labels on cigarette boxes, anti-choice activists are launching a campaign that petitions the FDA to create similarly graphic labels for “all abortion facilities and abortion-causing drugs.” Pointing to the FDA-approved emergency contraceptive pill “Ella” as an abortion pill, activists are claiming that the FDA is being hypocritical for not requiring “a black-box warning on the cover of the drug telling a women it can kill your child if conception has already occurred.”
