Feds now back morning-after pills for all girls

By TOM HAYS / Associated Press

NEW YORK -- After setting off a storm of criticism from abortion rights groups, upset that a Democratic president had sided with social conservatives, the Obama administration says it will comply with a judge's order to allow girls of any age to buy emergency contraception without prescriptions.
