SourceMADISON, Wis. (AP) - The Wisconsin Assembly approved a ban on the so-called morning-after pill on state college campuses, a restriction that would be the first in the nation if approved.
The legislation would prohibit University of Wisconsin System health centers from advertising, prescribing or dispensing emergency contraception - drugs that can block a pregnancy in the days after sex. The state university system has 161,000 students on 26 campuses.
"Are we going to change the lifestyle of every UW student? No," LeMahieu said. "But we can tell the university that you are not going to condone it, you are not going to participate in it, and you are not going to use our tax dollars to do it."
I am against abortions, so I think this pill is the ideal answer to unwanted pregnancies, after the fact. What are these people thinking? Maybe it is the fact that taxpayer money is being used? Is anyone familiar with the reasoning behind this?
