Court Denies Government's Motion to Stay Order that Morning-After Pill Be Made Available Without Restrictions

Judge Edward R. Korman Calls Government Argument "frivolous," "for the purpose of delay" and "largely an insult to the intelligence of women"

In a scathing decision, U.S. District Court Judge Edward R. Korman has denied the Obama administration's Motion to Stay his Order from April 5, 2013, requiring that emergency contraception be made available without age and point-of-sale restrictions. 

Calling the government's appeal of his order "frivolous and ... taken for the purpose of delay," Judge Korman rejected the government's efforts to continue to deprive women and girls in the United States access to Morning-After contraceptives. His Memorandum and Order calls the conduct of Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius in blocking access "politically motivated, scientifically unjustified, and contrary to agency precedent" and a decision "so unpersurasive as to call into question her good faith." 

The Opinion calls the Obama administration's argument "largely an insult to the intelligence of women."
