Obama backs FDA decision on morning-after pills
Despite the court order, the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) had lowered the age to 15 from 17 for obtaining the pill without a prescription.
"I'm comfortable with it," Obama said, when asked about the decision of FDA on morning-after pills.
Obama said he is very supportive of contraception because he thinks it is very important that women have control over their healthcare choices, and when they are starting a family.
"That's their decision to make, and so we want to make sure that they have access to contraception. We had a little bit of a fuss around what we're doing with the affordable care act, but I very much think that that's the right thing to do," he said.
"It has not resolved the question of girls younger than 15," Obama said.
"There was a court case that came up that is being appealed by the Justice Department. That is a Justice Department decision," he said.
