Justice Dept to Appeal Pill Ruling

On Wednesday, the Justice Department announced it would appeal an judge's order to move the morning-after pill over the counter and available to all regardless of age. Yesterday, the FDA announced Plan B One-Step would be made legal for purchase without a prescription by girls 15 and up. But the Justice Department is seeking to overturn a broader order by a federal judge that removed age restrictions on Plan B and other simliar products, and has asked the FDA to freeze the judge's order until the appeal goes through.
