Custodio Appeals Morning After Pill Ban

Ramon Custodio has filed an appeal of the decision of the Health Minister of the de facto government, to ban the importation and sale of the "morning after pill" in Honduras. The ban, put in place by Ministerial decree on October 24, came at a time when the Supreme Court was deciding if it was constitutional or not, to ban the import and sale of the pill. The case in the Supreme Court, was a consultation requested by Congress during President Zelaya's administration, and it questioned Zelaya's veto of a previous law banning the importation and sale of the pill.

Custodio argued that the Health Minister's actions was abuse of authority, and asked the court to set it aside, as it violates the constitutional rights of women.
