(LifeNews.com) – President Barack Obama is defending his administration’s decision yesterday to deny over the counter access to the morning after pill to teenage girls — a surprise decision that cause some pro-life and pro-abortion groups off guard.
In a rare move, the Health and Human Services Department overruled a decision by the Food and Drug Administration to make the morning after pill available to teenagers without a prescription. The Obama administration was examining the possibility of selling the morning after pill to teenagers and the FDA had until Wednesday to respond to a request from the maker of the generic version of the Plan B drug to sell it on the shelves and not behind the pharmacist’s counter. However, although the FDA initially approved the decision, the HHS department overruled it.
