The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has expanded access to one type of emergency contraception to women as young as 15 without a prescription. Lori Abbott has more.

"Plan B One-Step" does not terminate a pregnancy; it prevents fertilization of an egg if taken within a few days after intercourse.
