Elizabeth Warren Suggests Opposition To Obama Administration’s Plan B Decision

Speaking at a private Washington Women for Choice fundraiser last Friday, consumer advocate and Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren intimated to attendees that she “disagreed” with the Obama administration’s rejection of the FDA’s decision to make the morning-after pill Plan B available to women of any age. Currently, Plan B is only available over the counter to women age 17 or older. One attendee told the Huffington Post’s Amanda Terkel that Warren “was not happy with it” and “was very clearly supportive of making Plan B available.” Another attendee described Warren as “shattered” by the administration’s decision, adding “She made it very clear that this was not in line with our values, and it was ignoring the science. She thought that this was horrifying.” But another attendee did say she did give “a clear impression of where she stood” and said “she couldn’t give a context for even offering an explanation and that she had been traveling at the time it came down.”
