The Brookline Parent: Rights and Wrongs

Our latest The Brookline Parent column, Rights and Wrongs, is a little…political. I tackle the question of what the McCullen v. Coakley decision means to me, and to Brookline.

Ugh, the elimination of the buffer zone and the Hobby Lobby news have made me want to throw furniture at my radio this week (I don't own a television). Scary stuff.

The vast majority of people who walk into Planned Parenthood aren't there for an abortion. I used to go to that very location for birth control pills, when I had an insurance plan that didn't cover them. If there hadn't been a buffer zone, I might have skipped the pills altogether, as I suspect many others will do once this change goes into effect. I can imagine that the result will be an increase in abortions, since condoms (available without a prescription) are far more fallible than pills or other forms of birth control for which women require a prescription -- Planned Parenthood is the least expensive way for many to get access to those options.
