    Judge strikes restrictions on 'morning-after' pill
    By Reuters

    A federal judge on Friday ordered the Food and Drug Administration to make the "morning-after" emergency contraception pill available without a prescription to all girls of reproductive age.

    The ruling by U.S. District Judge Edward Korman in Brooklyn, New York, comes in a lawsuit brought by reproductive-rights groups that had sought to remove age and other restrictions on emergency contraception.

    I have mixed feelings about a 9-17 year old taking this morning after pill without any parental knowledge. Perhaps a doctor or clinic should be the ones to give this so they can monitor any possible side effects

      I live in Australia and the MIP is available over the counter. From memory I think you have to sign something, but it would be easy for someone else to buy it for you. Honestly I'd rather a young person lied about taking contraceptives than got pregnant because they couldn't.

        Since "The Pill" has to be administered with a prescription so possible ill effects are monitored,why not the "Morning After " pill also?
        It s not as simple as popping an aspirin. I'm not judging anyone who needs it, but it can cause some serious problems.

    Many of these girls if they told their parents would be disowned, thrown out onto the street, or beaten. Parents want to know NOT so they can care for the girl's health but so they can control her choices.

    Making a prescription necessary takes additional money for the office visit, and more importantly TIME to wait for the appointment and go.  Emergency birth control is only effective for a short period of time.  Many doctors simply can't see you on short notice.  Requiring a prescription simply places more blocks on young women getting access.
