WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The Obama administration is dropping its fight to keep age restrictions on the so-called morning-after pill.
The decision means the emergency contraception will be available to anyone without a prescription, regardless of age.
The drug does not end a pregnancy, but instead is designed to prevent ovulation or fertilization of an egg, if taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex.
