"Missouri seeks to reclassify Plan B as ‘abortion-inducing.’"

State lawmakers Missouri have introduced a bill to reclassify emergency contraception (Plan B) as “an abortion-inducing medication, contrary to the definition used by the Food and Drug Administration.” The bill would also “protect pharmacies from lawsuits and from punishment by state regulators for refusing to sell or fill a prescription for any drug defined as triggering an abortion.”
