Federal Judge Makes Morning-After Pill Available to Children

Posted by Steve Markowitz on April 7, 2013

As reported in the New York Times, on Friday, federal judge Edward Korman of the Eastern District of New York issued an ordered that Plan B One-Step, referred to as the “morning after pill”, be made available over-the-counter for anyone regardless of age.  In the order the Judge strongly rebuked the Obama Administration saying that it acted in “bad faith”, as well as acting “arbitrary, capricious and unreasonable” and that “the F.D.A. has engaged in intolerable delays in processing the petition.  Indeed, it could accurately be described as an administrative agency filibuster.

President Obama often promotes radical Leftist views relating to abortion, birth control, and other issues the Left includes in the category of “a woman’s right to choose”.  That made his decision in 2011 to require girls under 17 to require a prescription for the morning after pill curious.  The Times reported that the Administration’s decision on this matter was political.  Making these pills available for young girls was a political hot potato that the President did not want to address prior to the election.  Judge Korman’s said as much in his decision saying of Health and Human Services secretary, Kathleen Sebelius’s decision that “the secretary’s action was politically motivated, scientifically unjustified, and contrary to agency precedent.”

Irrespective of Obama’s motivations, his decision was correct.  Making the morning-after pill available to young girls is reckless and continues down the slippery slope of promoting sexual promiscuity at ever younger ages.  It also continues down the path of taking rights and responsibilities away from parents.  We have been traveling down this path for decades.  It is time to ask whether women in particular and society in general re better off as a result of these changes,
