Let's Put Plan B in Happy Meals

Politico has the story of plaintiffs in the recent case requiring Plan B to be made available, over the counter, to girls of any age now arguing that the court order, and the Obama administration's response, does not go far enough, that generic versions of Plan B should be made available too. This crowd will not be happy until Plan B is included in Happy Meals at McDonald's.

I do not fault the Obama administration for realizing they were going to lose in the courts on restricting the age at which Plan B is available. But, someone needs to say that this is insane. When I buy Nyquil at the Giant, someone needs to swipe a manager's card to make sure I am of age.
