Mexican Supreme Court to consider "day after pill"

Though the Secretary of Health approved and issued instructions for the use of the day after pill as a means of contraception, a pro-life group went to the courts for an injunction (or something legally similar). According to the article, the group actually targeted all forms of birth control, including condoms. The Supreme Court has decided to review the case and several judges want the case to pass to a full panel.

that is funny i thought it was legal in Mexico. quite a few of my girlfriends in Mexico have bought it at their local pharmacies. In fact a couple weeks ago I went with a friend to pick it up.

It is legal but lately several pro-life groups have mobilized to get it regulated or banned. I'm actually planning a post on this soon, since over the last 2-3 weeks, the leftist press has covered it quite closely. Since I haven't had regular internet access, I haven't had a chance to read and post the articles.
