GENERAL
The World Health Organization has declared that oral contraceptives are a Group 1 carcinogen (Press Release #167, July 29, 2005).
The FDA should not approve of the morning after pill (a.k.a. Plan B, emergency contraception) or contraceptives in general, either by prescription or OTC.

Why should the FDA recommend a carcinogen?
