Emergency contraception will now be available to more, younger women and can be picked up over-the-counter.
FOX News Radio's Lisa Lacerra reports:
Women will now be able to find Plan B emergency contraception in the family planning aisle; the FDA ruling it no longer has to be kept behind the pharmacy counter. The agency also lowering the age at which girls can buy it to 15, but buyers would have to show proof of age and if a customer can't produce proof, she won't be able to purchase it.
Earlier this month, a Federal judge in New York ruled there should be no age restriction and gave the FDA 30 days to act. The agency saying this decision is independent of that case.
