Abstract

State laws dictating "informed consent" about surgical and chemical abortions sometimes ensnare emergency contraceptives (EC), as the science surrounding EC shows. Courts evaluating mandated disclosures gravitate to professional norms rather than the information most women would value: basic factual information about EC so that they can decide for themselves whether to use these drugs.
