FOX’s Colleen Cappon reports in today’s “Housecall for Health”:

Audio clip:

The American Academy of Pediatrics is encouraging doctors to counsel adolescent patients about emergency contraception and make advance prescriptions for girls under 17.  Underage use of the morning after pill has been one of the most controversial topics in healthcare for over a decade, and while AAP leaders are optimistic, they expect many doctors will refuse the recommendation because of their own values about teenage sex.
