FDA Assistant Commissioner for Women’s Health, Susan Wood, says she can’t remain at the Agency because of the refusal to change the status of the drug protocol, “Plan B” often called the “morning after pill.” The Henry J. Kaiser Foundation’s daily news reports the fuss.
I agree with the former Commissioner, she should not be the face of women’s health for the agency if she is certain that all of our current regulation of health matters should be changed for this one area of “women’s health.”
Why not just go ahead and make all oral contraceptives over the counter? Why not sell vacuum “menstrual extraction” machines for monthly use in the home? Why have medical regulations at all?
