A Loaf of Bread, a Jug of Wine...and a Morning After Pill

A federal court in New York has ruled that the FDA must make the so-called "morning after pill" available over the counter to 17-year olds. It is currently available only to those who are 18 and older.

According to the article, Nancy Northup, president of the Center for Reproductive Rights, which brought the lawsuit against the FDA, said, "The message is clear -- the FDA should put medical science first and leave politics at the lab door. We are encouraged that the agency, now under new leadership, will take that message to heart."

I was going to add my own comment, but decided that the article speaks for itself.
