AG Kilgore oks "morning-after" contraceptive pills

As reported here, "in an action that could complicate his drive toward Republican gubernatorial nomination in 2005," Attorney General Jerry Kilgore has approved as legal the practice of Virginia's state college and universities of dispensing through student health programs the "morning-after" contraceptive pills that were the target of Delegate Robert Marshall, who viewed them as a form of abortion. The article notes that Kilgore is "expected to raise $500,000 for his campaign today by hosting a Richmond luncheon featuring former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani."
