Not Just Stupid, Illegal


A federal judge has persuasively ruled that the Obama administration’s disgraceful decision to refuse over-the-counter access to emergency contraception for young women under 18 was illegal. The decimation of the administration’s farcical invocation of 11-year-olds is particularly strong, but the entire opinion is well-constructed and devastating.

As I said at the time, not only was this decision procedurally arbitrary and indefensible on policy grounds, as a first approximation the votes gained by an irrational pro-unwanted-teen-pregnancy position was “none.” I hope the Obama administration will use this as a signal to just let this foolish mistake die a deserved death.
