OUR REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT:

U.S. to Defend Age Limits on Morning-After Pill Sales (PAM BELLUCK and MICHAEL D. SHEAR, 5/02/13, NY Times)

The Obama administration moved Wednesday to keep girls under 15 from having over-the-counter access to morning-after pills, as the Justice Department filed a notice to appeal a judge's order that would make the drug available without a prescription for girls and women of all ages. [...]

For Mr. Obama's administration, the decision to appeal the judge's ruling provides an opportunity to reaffirm a moderate position in the broader abortion debate that had drawn praise from conservative groups that are normally highly critical of the president.
