Availability Of Morning After Pill To Minors To Be Decided By FDA Tomorrow

 

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is expected to make a decision tomorrow on whether or not to make the morning after pill available over the counter to girls under the age of 17. Since first sparking controversy five years ago upon its release into the market, Plan B has only been available behind-the-counter to adult women — after they presented identification.

In an interview with the Washington Post, former FDA employee, Susan Wood, of George Washington University, expresses her relief that the FDA may finally make a move on Plan B.

“If you got into a Wal-Mart and the pharmacy is closed, you’re out of luck … By having it on the shelf, more women will become aware of the availability of emergency contraception and won’t have to ask someone in an emergency situation about a very private and personal situation. Hopefully, that will help women when time is of the essence,” says Wood.

  1. Hi Blacklikemoi,
    I was wondering on a similar note,, If lifespan is not adequately advanced, then presume once again about death and taxes! Dying has hardly ever been alot more messy, as State and Federal courts prowl due to deceased persons’ estates in search of “government’s share” of what you’ve worked and saved for. Straightforward, legally adequate and ever more well-known living trusts in California promise you and your heirs privateness and lower estate transfer prices to when-demise estate gatherings for State citizens.
    Regards
