The Obama administration is seeking to block access to emergency contraception without a prescription for women of all ages. On Wednesday, the Justice Department moved to appeal a federal judge’s ruling earlier this month ordering that the “morning-after pill” be made available over the counter without age restrictions. Back in 2011, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius blocked the sale of the drug to younger women without a prescription, overruling FDA drug regulators for the first time in history after they moved, based on scientific research, to eliminate all age limits. Advocates for reproductive justice say the Obama administration’s actions are based on politics, not science, and that they prevent access to a safe and needed medication to women who lack ID. On Tuesday, the FDA announced it was approving the emergency contraceptive pill “Plan B One Step” for sale without a prescription to women 15 and older, a move critics say still does not go far enough toward allowing all women to prevent unwanted pregnancies.
