Letter to the Editor
Obama’s Secretary of Health and Human Services today blocked the over the counter sale of the emergency contraceptive “Plan B” from being purchased by girls under 17 years old. Because the pill is most effective when used in the first 24 hours Obama is intervening to help ensure that girls 16 and under are more likely to get pregnant. I don’t know why the Republicans are trying to defeat Obama. It seems with this decision along with other similar decisions that we already have a Republican president.
