Morning-After Pill... Over the Counter?
A federal judge has ordered the Food and Drug Administration to make the morning-after pill available over the counter.
The order also directs the FDA to make it available to a person of any age, instead of requiring a prescription for girls aged 16 years and younger.
This ruling overturns a 2011 decision by the Obama administration's health and human services secretary who issued an order requiring a prescription for girls under 17 years of age.
The judge ordered the FDA to lift any age and sale restrictions on the pill - Plan B One-Step, and its generic versions within 30 days.
