Obama Administration Files Appeal To Delay Sale Of Morning-After Pill To Girls Of Any Age Without Prescription
The Obama administration on Monday filed a last-minute appeal to delay the sale of the morning-after contraceptive pill to girls of any age without a prescription.
The government is running out of time to try to halt implementation of a federal judge’s ruling that would lift age restrictions for women and girls wanting to buy the morning-after pill.
The Justice Department is appealing a judge’s decision lifting all age limits on the Plan B morning-after birth control pill and a cheaper generic.
The government on Tuesday lowered to 15 the age at which girls can buy the morning-after pill without a prescription and said the emergency contraception no longer has to be kept behind pharmacy counters.
President Barack Obama supports requiring girls younger than 17 to see a doctor before buying the morning-after pill. But fighting that battle in court comes with its own set of risks.
Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor has denied a request to block part of the federal health care law that requires employers to provide employee insurance coverage that includes emergency contraception including the morning after pill.
Congressman Akin’s comments are unconscionable and while Congressman Akin owns the words that came from his mouth, the sentiment and his policy goals are shared by both Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, despite their statements today.
