Pill will now be available to girls of any age.

An activist federal judge has issued an order so extreme that even Kathleen Sebelius and the Obama administration wouldn't dare. Federal Judge Edward R. Korman has ruled against the Obama administration and ordered that the "morning after pill" be made available for children on demand without a prescription.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - In a decision that many will regard as arbitrary, capricious,unconstitutional and unreasonable, Judge Korman in Federal District Court ruled that requiring a prescription from a doctor for a child age 16 or younger for a pill which can operate as an abortifacient was "arbitrary, capricious, and unreasonable."

The jaw-dropping decision now means that a child of any age can simply purchase the pill over the counter without notifying their parents or receiving a doctor's care. In other words, a Judge has usurped the role of parents, acted against prudent medical supervision, disregarded the constitutional separation of powers and acted against the fundamental human right to life.

It should be clearly understood that the so called morning after pill can act as an abortifacient. If an egg has already been fertilized - and thus become an embryonic human life - the chemicals kill this embryonic human life by rejecting him or her from implantation in the womb where they can grow and develop.

The decision to allow girls of any age to access the pill without any supervision or help was one that even the Obama administration refused to consider. Kathleen Sebelius herself mandated that at least small children, 16 and younger, should have a prescription from a doctor before taking the pill.

Judge Korman accused the F.D.A. of delaying the case and the decision and attempting to obstruct its progress. "More than 12 years have passed since the citizen petition was filed and 8 years since this lawsuit commenced," he wrote.  "The F.D.A. has engaged in intolerable delays in processing the petition. Indeed, it could accurately be described as an administrative agency filibuster."

Korman added, "The plaintiffs should not be forced to endure, nor should the agency's misconduct be rewarded by, an exercise that permits the F.D.A. to engage in further delay and obstruction."

Several activist and medical groups have insisted the pill is safe for children, despite the inevitability that it can operate as an abortifacient and kill embryonic human life.

There are also other genuine concerns. For example, the use of the pill to cover up sexual activity including the sexual abuse of children.  Children who are sexually active and do not receive a doctor's care are also at extreme risk for becoming ill with sexually transmitted diseases, some of which are so prevalent that they are becoming resistant to drugs designed to fight them.

The free and easy access to the so called morning after pill facilitates immoral, dangerous behavior, can kill embryonic human life and adds to future healthcare costs as sexually active children become adults with diseases and difficulty conceiving.
