During a Friday appearance at the 2013 Values Voter Summit, famous reproductive health expert Ted Cruz gestured emphatically with his hands while saying completely false things about birth control.
The Affordable Care Act, which Cruz does not like one bit, requires most employers to cover birth control, including emergency contraception. Cruz told the crowd, incorrectly, that emergency contraception is an "abortifacient." He said this wrong thing twice, for emphasis.
Emergency contraception is not an abortion-inducing drug, even though lots of anti-abortion activists like to say that it is. (Also, actual abortion-inducing drugs, like RU-486, are a completely safe and effective form of reproductive health care; so chill, Ted Cruz.)
