FDA Bows to Political Pressure, Requires Prescription for Morning-After Pill

Plan B - Morning After Pill

Timeline of History

The FDA refuses to allow a morning-after pill to be sold without a prescription. This goes against the recommendation (23-4) of a federal advisory panel of physicians, demonstrating a willingness of the FDA to submit to political pressure against science.

The reasoning of the FDA is that this safe, effective, and common medication can't be released over the counter because minor girls might not be able to figure out how to use it properly.
