University Ad On Contraception Angers Abortion Critics
Monday, March 14, 20050 Comments
The Health Services division at the University of Wisconsin-Madison started running the ad in the university's two student newspapers, The Daily Cardinal and The Badger Herald, about a week ago.
It advises students to get the morning-after pill by calling University Health Services and getting a prescription over the phone, with no appointment necessary.
Peggy Hamill is the state director of Pro-Life Wisconsin. She said the university was "reckless" to promote the contraceptive, which she said could have serious side-effects.
University officials said this isn't the first time the ads discussed emergency contraception.
The ad is paid for by student fees, not tax dollars.
