  • Plan B pill ruling a victory for ‘abortion industry’

    Last week the U.S. Justice Department opted out of pursuing any legal action against the April ruling of District Judge Edward Korman that eradicated any age-restrictions on the purchase of Plan B Emergency Contraceptive, or the so-called “morning after” pill.
