The Huffington Post’s Laura Bassett reports that Wheaton College, despite its serious, serious opposition to emergency contraception (school leadership’s stance is that Plan B causes abortions, which it doesn’t, but facts have no place in organized religion), the school “inadvertently” covered emergency contraception after the cutoff date of February 10th, which means they don’t qualify for the exemption. And now, even though they’re at fault for not taking the necessary precautions, Wheaton’s administration finds itself pregnant — with rage.
When Bassett asked a school spokesperson how long emergency contraception coverage existed on Wheaton’s plan, they referred her to a legal fund that’s supporting the school’s lawsuit against the Obama administration. Which means they were probably covering Plan B for a very, very long time. And the entire college didn’t implode.
