Julie Rovner at NPR News: Post-Election, 'Morning After' Pill Advocates Want Age Rules Revisited

"We are asking Secretary Sebelius to go back and take another look at the science, the medical evidence … and see if there’s a way to come to agreement to make this product more easily available to the women who need it," says Kirsten Moore, president and CEO of the Reproductive Health Technologies Project.

Moore points out that during the past year, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has recommended that all birth control pills be sold over the counter, while the American Academy of Pediatrics has recommended routine advance prescription of the morning-after pill to teen girls.
