Five months after ordering the Food and Drug Administration to allow the marketing of the emergency contraceptive Plan B to 17-year-olds without a prescription, a Brooklyn federal judge has refused to allow three Christian lobbying groups who oppose abortion to challenge the ruling. The judge held that the groups lacked standing due to a failure to show harm, calling one of their arguments a "stretch." The judge also ruled that the groups failed to make a timely motion to challenge his earlier decision.
