A memo from Kilgore's office says laws requiring women to be informed about abortion procedures and wait 24 hours do NOT affect the practice of giving out the emergency contraception pills at campus health centers.
The Attorney General's office said the practice is legal, but that schools need to be sure women are given QUOTE "clear and complete information'' about whatever medicine they are prescribed.
Republican Delegate Bob Marshall criticized the practice in letters to several universities and suggested it could be illegal.
In response, James Madison University's Board of Visitors banned the distribution of the pills last month, creating a storm of protest on campus.
