“What’s Plan B?” Asks Michigan AG Candidate Before Declaring It Should Be Banned Like Fentanyl

A common argument made by those who believe in reproductive freedom is that politicians who propose, pass, and enforce laws that limit what Americans can and cannot do with their own bodies should first pass a ninth-grade biology class. While it wouldn’t solve everything – even an anti-choice zealot could possibly read up on how it all works – it would go a long way when it comes to eliminating people who think, for example, that “the female body has options.” ‘ to stop rape pregnancy and that an ectopic pregnancy can be ‘reimplanted'[ed].” Or that emergency contraception has anything to do with fentanyl. Which at least one Conservative hopes to be elected to higher office.

Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Texas last month, Matt DePerno, who is running for Michigan Attorney General was asked if there is a law in the state that prevents people from using Plan B. “What’s plan B?” DePerno responded over audio from Heartland Signal. After being informed it was a form of emergency contraception, DePerno stated that things like this need to stop.

“You have to figure out how to get the pill out of the state,” DePerno said. When asked if he had any ideas about this, he replied: “You have to stop it at the border. It would be no different than fentanyl…. The state must ban it and it should be banned. But it’s just a matter of how to enforce it; how do you make sure it stops? That’s your problem.”

Plan B is a type of emergency contraception to prevent pregnancy. Fentanyl is an opioid used to treat pain and is responsible for most overdose deaths in the United States. As Heartland Signal notes, the former has nothing to do with the latter or US borders and “is a legal and safe drug used by millions of people.” Last year GOP representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, whose face greets you when you look up the word “ignorance” in the dictionary, claims on the floor of the house: “Contraception keeps a woman from getting pregnant. Plan B’s pill kills a baby in the womb once a woman is already pregnant.” In fact, Plan B only prevents ovulation and fertilization; a pregnancy that has already been implanted is not terminated by this. Unfortunately, many Republicans are idiots who either don’t understand this or who intentionally misinterpret the facts for political gain.

In June, when the Supreme Court struck down the constitutional right to abortion, Justice Clarence Thomas wrote in a unanimous opinion that the court should consider overturning the rulings protecting contraception, same-sex marriage and same-sex sexual activity.
