Pro-life congressman flip-flops mandates morning-after pill
Rep. Michael Michaud (R-2nd District) added an amendment to the Department of Defense Reauthorization Bill that mandates that military bases stock and distribute the morning-after pill as part of their "Basic Core Formulary," making an abortifacient drug on the same level as aspirin and cough medicine.
"This is another political flip-flop," said Charla Bansley, State Director of Concerned Women for America of Maine. "Rep. Michaud [campaigns] as a pro-life.... The morning-after pill is...not pro-life."
