LOUISIVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- If they're old enough to reproduce, they're old enough to get the morning after pill without a prescription.
That's what a federal judge is telling the Food and Drug Administration.
The FDA is ordered to make the "morning after" pill available to everyone without a prescription.
It prevents unwanted pregnancy if it's taken within 72 hours after having unprotected sex.
Right now, the FDA only allows women over age seventeen to get the morning after pill without a prescription and they have to show identification to get it.
