Portman Calls on Administration to Immediately Appeal Unelected Judge's Decision to Make Morning-After Pills Available Without A Prescription For All Ages


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) today released the following statement on U.S. District Judge Edward Korman's ruling to make the morning-after pill available over the counter and without a prescription for girls of all ages:

"This misguided decision by an unelected judge attempts to reverse a reasonable and well-supported policy designed to ensure that girls 16 and younger get the advice of a doctor before buying morning-after pills. I call on the Administration to join me in opposing this overreach by the judiciary and to immediately appeal the decision."
