District Court Decision Regarding the "Morning After" Pill: WH interferes with the FDA, where Religion Displaced Science

Article: Find Law
Refferenced by: Pharyngula

"The recent federal district court decision in Tummino v. Torti is a window into the corruption in the Bush Administration, as well as a window into our current culture. Judge Edward Korman held that the FDA had engaged in arbitrary and capricious decisionmaking when it refused to permit a form of emergency contraception, called "Plan B," to be made available over the counter (OTC) to women under 18. The sole question before the FDA involved whether Plan B, available by prescription, would also be made available over the counter. The evidence before Judge Korman has made quite clear that the White House itself interfered with the ordinary science-based processes of the FDA in order to restrict the availability of Plan B for irrational reasons."
