FDA Blocks Over-the-Counter Plan B Sales
WASHINGTON -- The Food and Drug Administration on Thursday rejected over-the-counter sale of the emergency contraceptive Plan B, saying that the distributor had not proven that young teens can take the drug safely without a doctor's guidance.

The decision was an unusual repudiation of the the lopsided recommendation of the agency's own expert advisory panel, which voted 23-4 late last year in favor of the switch and 27-0 that the drug could be safely sold as an over-the-counter medication.


Question for the FDA: What the fuck is the point of having an expert advisory panel if you're just going to ignore it?
