Bunnies Talk Plan B in Commercial

When the FDA Won't Listen to the Law, It's Time to Try Bunnies

A year ago today, the Center For Reproductive Rights won an important victory when a federal court decided the FDA put politics before health by keeping the morning-after pill behind pharmacy counters and enforcing age restrictions so only women 17 and older could purchase it. We thought things would change, but one year later, it's still locked up. Besides the potential embarrassment involved with asking, it creates logistical impediments if the pharmacy is closed though the store is open (often) or if you forget your ID. Because who knew you'd be carded!

To ignite action, the Center For Reproductive Rights put together this video of two bunnies being cute (I guess cute works?) while having a conversation about the FDA's inaction one year later. "Scientists say," says one bunny, "there are no medical reasons to limit access to emergency contraception."

And must Plan B discussions always open with "the condom broke." Of course it happens, but will it ever be acceptable to simply say "I didn't use a condom because I didn't have one"? Not soon enough!
