Obama Reverses Course On Morning-After Pill

By  

The U.S. government has dropped its effort to block a court order that would make the morning-after contraceptive pill available over-the-counter to all women and girls.

That means the Morning-After Pill is now available over the counter.

Get the summary in this video:

After fighting for an age threshold on the nonprescription use of the Plan B One-Step pill for months, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said in a statement late Monday that it would heed the ruling of Judge Edward Korman, of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York. The drug preventsconception if taken within 72 hours of having sexual intercourse. (source)

“This is a huge breakthrough for access to birth control and a historic moment forwomen’s health and equity,” Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards said in a news release. “The FDA’s decision will make emergency contraception available on store shelves, just like condoms, and women of all ages will be able to get it quickly in order to prevent unintended pregnancy.”

However, the decision is certain to anger abortion rights opponents, who oppose allowing young girls access to the drug without the consent or involvement of a parent or a doctor.
