New Proposal for Morning After Pill

They tried before and they're not giving up.

The makers of the morning after birth control pill are pushing again for over-the-counter sales. You remember, the FDA rejected the proposal two months ago. But now, Barr Labs has changed the proposal to include an age requirement. They're now asking that the morning after pill be available over the counter, but only to those who are at least 16 years old.

Now, the FDA has six months to decide on this new request. Currently, the morning after pill is available to women of any age, but by prescription only.
