I STRONGLY URGE THE FDA NOT TO APPROVE OVER-THE-COUNTER SALES OF THE 'MORNING AFTER PILL.' IF IT IS LEGAL IN THIS COUNTRY (I DO NOT BELIEVE THE DRUG SHOULD BE LEGAL AT ALL), THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD REQUIRE A PRESCRIPTION FOR IT. IT IS ESSENTIALLY AN ABORTIFACIENT AND SHOULD NEVER BE ALLOWED TO BE PURCHASED WITHOUT A PHYSICIAN'S ORDER. THANK YOU.
