An FHO Extra: Plan B & the FDA in Fed Court

leave a comment »

I’m a bit late to this story, but last week a federal court judge ordered the FDA to make Plan B available to 17 year olds without a prescription within the next 30 days and consider making it OTC for younger girls, as well. The judge  essentially ruled that the FDA had acted in bad faith and in response to political pressure. You can read the story here, here, or here. Or listen to it here.
