U.S. District Judge Edward Korman (appointed by Ronnie Reagan) in Brooklyn, New York, ordered the Food and Drug Administration to make the "morning-after" emergency contraception pill available without a prescription to all girls of reproductive age.

WASHINGTON In a scathing rebuke of the Obama administration, a federal judge ruled Friday that age restrictions on over-the-counter sales of the morning-after pill are "arbitrary, capricious and unreasonable" and must end within 30 days.
The ruling by U.S. District Judge Edward Korman of New York means consumers of any age could buy emergency contraception without a prescription - instead of women first having to prove they're 17 or older, as they do today. And it could allow Plan B One-Step to move out from behind pharmacy counters to the store counters.
The Justice Department didn't immediately say whether it would appeal the ruling.
"We are reviewing the decision and evaluating the government's options," said F. Franklin Amanat, a lawyer for the government.
It's the latest twist in a decade-long push for easier access to emergency contraception, which can prevent pregnancy if taken soon enough after unprotected sex.
The Food and Drug Administration actually was preparing to lift all age limits on Plan B One-Step in late 2011 when Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, in an unprecedented move, overruled her own scientists. Sebelius said some girls as young as 11 are physically capable of bearing children but shouldn't be able to buy the pregnancy-preventing pill on their own. President Barack Obama said he supported the decision, also citing concern for young girls.
That move shocked women's groups - and in his ruling, Korman blasted Sebelius for what he called an "obviously political" decision.

Isn't it AMAZING! A 'woman' age 11 can get plan B, yet your 'child' age 26 is on mommas or papas insurance.
Things are turning inside out, upside down. Right is wrong. Wrong is right. Up is down and down is up. No morals.
Morals are 'old' fashion now.
Look for a HUGE spike in aids. Along with that good ole' Obama care. You know the one...yep. The obamacare that is going to pay for all those pre-existing conditions? Yep. That one.
The one that's broke before it began.
King obama IS wonderful.
