Federal lawyers have filed an appeal to stop a Brooklyn judge's decision to lift age restrictions on the controversial morning-after pill.
U.S. District Judge Edward Korman made the decision last month, allowing over-the-counter sales of Plan B pills.
Government lawyers had until today to appeal.
The FDA announced earlier this month that the pills would be made available without a prescription to girls 15 and over.
The minimum age for buying morning-after pills was 17.
Justice department lawyers have asked for a stay on the ruling while they appeal, but Korman has refused to delay putting it into effect.
