Obama says he 'very comfortable' with FDA ruling on morning after pill

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

President Obama responded to an FDA ruling on the morning after pill only being allowed over-the-counter for those 15 and older, saying he is "comfortable with it...based on solid scientific evidence."

Obama's administration wants the pill be allowed for all ages.

Obama said there was another way to look at the ruling, which was: "They're now allowing these contraceptives to be sold for 15 year olds and older." "It has not resolved the question of girls younger than 15," he acknowledged.

Obama is in Mexico and held a joint news conference with Mexico's president Enrique Peña Nieto.
