Judge makes morning-after pill available to all

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

The morning-after pill will soon be available to all.

That's after a New York federal judge ruled the Food and Drug Administration had to make it available to women of all ages within 30 days.

Judge Edward Korman in Brooklyn criticized the FDA for not engaging in rulemaking to adopt an age-restricted marketing regime.

He says the case isn't about potential misuse by 11-year-olds, adding that the contraceptives would be among the safest drugs sold over-the-counter. Korman also refutes the number of 11-year-olds likely to use the drugs as minuscule.
