A federal appeals court has agreed to delay the sale of emergency contraception without a prescription for people of all ages. U.S. District Court Judge Edward Korman had rejected the administration’s bid to delay his order that the “morning-after pill” be made available without restrictions while it appeals his decision. But on Monday the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York granted the delay at least until it takes up the issue later this month. Judge Korman has accused the Obama administration of blocking access to the morning-after pill for political reasons, noting that it would be among the safest over-the-counter medications in existence.
