Judge: Morning-After Pill For All Ages [VIDEO]
A U.S. judge has stricken age restrictions on the distribution of morning-after pills.
FOX News Radio’s Courtney Kealy reports from New York:
A federal judge in Brooklyn has ordered the Food and Drug Administration to make the emergency contraception pill known as the “morning-after” pill available to girls and women of all ages without a prescription.
The ruling by U.S. District Judge Edward Korman comes in a lawsuit by reproductive rights groups who sought to remove age and other restrictions on the contraception.
Currently, only females age 17 or older can obtain the pills, known as Plan B, without a prescription.
