President Obama and the FDA are considering a plan to let anyone of any age buy the controversial morning-after pill Plan B directly off drugstore and supermarket shelves without a prescription.

The FDA has until Wednesday to respond to a request that would make the pill as easy to get as toilet paper and toothpaste.  The current requirement is by prescription only and patients must be over 17.  The change would see the product displayed along with other contraceptive devices.

Plan B works by preventing an egg from being fertilized through high doses of hormones.  Critics say the drug could keep a fertilized egg from implanting in the womb, an action they consider equivalent to abortion.

Regardless of the critics it appears the Obama administration wants to do all it can to facilitate termination of unwanted and unplanned pregnancies.
