Federal judge lifts all restrictions on 'morning-after' pill sales

Catholic World News - April 05, 2013

A US federal court has ruled that the government must allow over-the-counter sales of the “morning-after pill” to women of all ages.

Judge Edward Korman charged that the federal government was acting in “bad faith” by requiring a doctor’s prescription for sales of the pill to girls under the age of 17. The judge said that the pill must made be available without restriction within 30 days.

    Judge Korman's actions clearly define "legislating from the bench" and are based on a progressive agenda to wrest the responsibility for raising minor children from their parents and give it to the government. A few federal judges need to be impeached to send a message to the rest that judicial legislation will not be tolerated. (Now, if we just had a Congress that enforced the Constitution instead of leaving it to the Courts ...)
