SAN DIEGO, California (April 30, 2013) – According to an article by CBS8, the government is finally allowing those who are fifteen years old to buy the over-the-counter morning after pill. Age restrictions will be lifted on the emergency contraceptive due to a court-imposed deadline that will go into effect in a few days. Meanwhile middle ground has been found with the fifteen and older rule. Plan B One-Step is sold behind the counter at pharmacies, and in the past a person had to be at least seventeen to buy it. Early this month U.S. District Judge Edward Korman criticized Obama for imposing the 17-year-old age requirement. Judge Korman ordered an end to all age restrictions for Plan B by this Monday. However, the FDA is stating that the decision made by Korman was independent of the court and wasn’t intended to change the law. Many women’s reproductive rights groups oppose requiring an age limit for Plan B. The reason for the age limit is because many people are concerned that the pill works as an abortion pill because it can sometimes prevent a fertilized egg from attaching to the uterus.
