Susan B. Anthony List: Obama's Compliance With Morning After Pill Ruling 'Sick'

The Obama Administration's decision to comply with a judge's order allowing girls of all ages to buy emergency contraception pills is a "sick joke," says Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List.

"It’s a joke and it’s a sick joke — but we get the joke here," Dannenfelser told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Story continues below.

She said President Barack Obama's decision not to fight the order shows that, once again, he has aligned himself with a liberal agenda — in this case one that ignores the concerns of parents and guardians.

"Truly, if you believe in the very fundamental right of a parent to guide the choices of their child, especially in an area like this where it could be an abortion … then you do whatever you can," Dannenfesler said.

"You use the executive powers of the president, an executive order … You certainly can absolutely do something about it."

Dannenfelser said Obama is so closely aligned with the liberal Planned Parenthood lobby, "that even if he started to nod in a certain direction, he'll be jerked back into shape in a second and that's exactly what he's done."

In April, U.S. District Judge Edward Korman ruled that the government must allow over-the-counter sales of the morning-after pill. Last week, a federal appeals court threw out the administration's objection to the ruling.

On Monday, the Food and Drug Administration and the Department of Health and Human Services told the judge it will allow the sale of the pill without any age restrictions.
The morning-after pill contains higher doses of hormones found in regular oral contraceptive pills and can prevent pregnancy after unprotected sexual intercourse.

Dannenfelser's group is a national, non-profit organization of more than 300,000 members that seeks to eliminate abortion in the U.S.

She said her group and others who believe in the right to life must convince the Republican Party to take a firmer stance in fighting abortion.

"Folks don’t believe that the president and Democratic candidates hold the positions that they really do, say against third trimester abortions and against banning partial birth abortion, against sex-selection abortion, for tax paying funding of all of these things," she said.

"They don't believe it because they haven't been told … The Republican Party right now, has not been doing that consistently and they're getting used to it as a habit and it's a habit that has to stop."
