Barber's Incoherent 'Plan B' Conspiracy Theory

Back in 2011, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius overruled a recommendation made by the Food and Drug Administration to make the morning-after pill, known as "Plan B," available without a prescription and without restrictions.

Earlier this month, a federal judge ruled that the restrictions put in place on Plan B by the HHS were "arbitrary, capricious and unreasonable" and struck them down.

And to Matt Barber, this all smacks of "collusion" between the judge and the Obama administration (starting at 3:23):

It seems a little redundant to me, in fact, that this Federal District Judge Edward Korman that he required, ordered, the Food and Drug Administration to lift any age and sale restrictions on Plan B. 

Well, this is the Obama FDA, so that's in perfect keeping with what this radical, pro-abort president is trying to do.  You know, you even have to wonder what kind of collusion is going on.  So I'm sure this is a "don't throw me in that briar patch" kind of situation in terms of this judge ordering the FDA to do something that President Obama would be inclined to do and has shown he's inclined to do in the first place.

Barber's theory, literally, makes no sense.

It was the Obama administration that placed the restrictions on Plan B, overruling the recommendations made by the FDA.  And those restrictions, put in place by the Obama administration, have now been struck down by a Regan-appointed judge.  So obviously, the Obama administration was not inclined to do this in the first place.

Maybe Barber ought to do a bit of research before filming these daily commentaries so that he might actually have an idea what he is talking about instead of incoherently spinning out illogical conspiracy theories.
