Plan B Appeal

Plan B Appeal
Posted May 1st, 2013 @ 5:20pm by KFBK News

The Department of Justice has appealed a federal judge's decision directing the FDA to offer birth control over the counter to women and girls of all ages. The appeal comes a day after the FDA said it would allow Plan B to be available to women and girls age 15 and older without a prescription.

In a court filing, the federal government asked for a stay so that the FDA would not be forced to comply with that decision immediately, and argued that the court didn’t have the authority to control the FDA’s decision.
