On Monday the liberal magazine Mother Jones reported:

The European manufacturer of an emergency contraceptive pill identical to Plan B, also known as the morning-after pill, will warn women that the drug is completely ineffective for women who weigh more than 176 pounds and begins to lose effectiveness in women who weigh more than 165 pounds. [emphasis added]

The article also states:

Weight data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests that, at 166 pounds, the average American woman is too heavy to use these pills effectively [emphasis added].

Add this to the ever-growing body of evidence that the increasing propagation of so-called “emergency contraception” (EC) has been an utterly failed strategy. (Indeed, this news comes just a few weeks after an article was published in the Journal of Policy Analysis and Management which found that increased access to EC has had no significant effect on unintended pregnancy or abortion rates—but that it may have led to a decrease in reports of rape.)
