FDA handing out "Morning After Pill" like candy

In response to a Federal ruling yesterday, the FDA has announced that they will adjust policy and allow Plan B, "The Morning After" pill to not only be distributed without a prescription, but now allow 17 year olds to purchase it over the counter.

Now let's see here: The "Morning After "pill is an extremely high dosage of the birth control pill. The regular dosage of the birth control pill requires a prescription from a physician who has examined the patient and is monitoring her risks. But now, this much higher dose can be purchased by a freckled-face teen like chewing gum 4 full years before she can buy a wine cooler.
And the Obama administration says it is putting science ahead of politics. Really?
