Hello, Good News

It’s nice to see you again.

The Food and Drug Administration said today it is considering approval of the morning-after pill for sale without a prescription, a surprise move on an issue that has ensnared the agency in debate for years.

Discussions between the government and Barr Laboratories, which manufactures the drug, known as Plan B, are set to begin immediately and could be completed “in a matter of weeks,” the agency said in a statement.
If the plan is approved, it would likely legalize OTC purchases of Plan B only for women 18 and older, but that would be a damn fine start.
