Media Alert: MSNBC FDA on Morning After Pill

FDA Considers Morning-After Pill Sales, By LAURAN NEERGAARD, AP Medical Writer, WASHINGTON

The government is considering allowing over-the-counter sales of the morning-after pill, but only to women 18 and older. The surprise move Monday revives efforts to widen access to the emergency contraceptive almost a year after it was thought doomed.

The Food and Drug Administration notified manufacturer Barr Laboratories Inc. early Monday that it wanted to meet within seven days to iron out new steps the company must take in its three-year battle to sell the pill, called Plan B, without a prescription to at least some women.

It promises to be a great program.

    Ah, I covered this on my own blog a few days ago: http://moronality.blogspot.com/2006/08/its-mere-minutes-since-i-started-this.html

    Sorry about the insults and one-sided presentation, but I have the view that when someone really cannot be reasoned with, ridicule is an acceptable way to draw attention to their mistakes.
