Birthcontrolling: Really, America?

I cannot, for the life of me, understand the debate now over birth control.  Even with two points being thrown about, it’s so illogical I honestly am worried about harming myself trying to so much as understanding it.

FDA To Rethink Plan B?

FDA To Rethink Plan B?

Plan B PillA federal judge has ordered the FDA to rethink it’s policy on the Plan B pill. He has ordered it be available without a prescription for girls and women.

From the Washington Post:

In his 52-page decision, Korman repeatedly criticized the FDA’s handling of the issue, agreeing with allegations in a lawsuit that the decision was “arbitrary and capricious” and influenced by “political and ideological” considerations imposed by the Bush administration.

“These political considerations, delays and implausible justifications for decision-making are not the only evidence of a lack of good faith and reasoned agency decision-making,” he wrote. “Indeed, the record is clear that the FDA’s course of conduct regarding Plan B departed in significant ways from the agency’s normal procedures regarding similar applications to switch a drug from prescription to non-prescription use.”

The entire article is worth a good read, naturally the opponents are decrying this move. I’ll be holding off my opinion for now.
So, what do you think? Should the Plan B Pill be available without a prescription and to younger women?
