The Justice Department will end restrictions on the one-pill version of morning-after emergency contraception. Until recently, only women aged at least 17 could buy the pill without a prescription. The decision comes after an appeals court said last week that an older two-pill version should be available over the counter on an unlimited basis. Companies affected include Teva (TEVA), Perrigo (PRGO) and Actavis (ACT). (previous)

    The decision "will make emergency contraception available on store shelves, just like condoms, and women of all ages will be able to get it quickly in order to prevent unintended pregnancy," said Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Cecile Richards.

     

    Senior administration officials described the move on Monday as a reaction to the reality of having lost several rounds of litigation on the issue.
