Senator Hillary Clinton and Washington Senator Patty Murray are calling for hearings to weigh the issues holding up the release of an over-the-counter version of the so-called morning after pill.
The Food and Drug Administration has delayed the release of the new version of the pill by an additional 60 days to reach a decision on the matter.
The issue seems to be how the agency would enforce the rule that only women over 17 should have access to the drug.
The drug is said to reduce the risk of pregnancy if taken three days after having unprotected sex.
