Plan B (Emergency Contraception): Is Politics Trumping Science?

December 7, 2005

What is the “emergency contraception” pill Plan B?
And why won’t the Food and Drug Administration allow it to be sold without a prescription?
Is ideology trumping science here?
Two guests today will join the debate: Dr. Susan Wood, who resigned from her post as Director of the FDA’s Office of Women’s Health to protest the FDA’s “politicization” of Plan B; and Nurse Jill Stanek, a “pro-life” advocate who testified against Plan B before the FDA.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.

    Oh Gordon in SF – You are turning into an old woman. Quit being a nag.
    By the way, have you ever seen any of Planned Parenthood’s sex ed materials?
