Emergency Contraceptives for Teens

A judge has ordered the Food and Drug Administration to allow 17-year-old girls to use emergency contraception without a prescription.

He says the FDA had played politics in its decisions over the past few years regarding the contraceptive known as Plan B.

The ruling overturns the FDA's denial of a petition by individuals and organizations that advocated for wider distribution and access to emergency contraceptives.
