AUL says New York Judge's Ruling Allows Big Abortion to Gamble with Young Girls' Health

WASHINGTON, April 5, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Americans United for Life Dr. Charmaine Yoest noted that the business interests of Big Abortion were again at play as news broke of a federal judge allowing the so-called "morning after" pill to be sold to girls 16 and younger over the counter.

"This decision allows the abortion industry to gamble with young girls' health in distributing a life-ending drug, with no real understanding of the long-term implications on their bodies," said Dr. Yoest. "Equally troubling, this allows young girls pressured into sex or even abused by adults to be manipulated into taking pills that cover up what is a criminal act."

"Young girls need medical supervision in taking such a potent and potentially life-ending drug," said Dr. Yoest. "The implications for informed consent -- and the long-term health impact on women of all ages -- are deeply troubling."
