| Plan B provides those women who fear a possible unintended pregnancy to safely prevent that pregnancy. This drug when sold as an over the counter drug will certainly reduce the number of abortions in this country.
Tobacco and alcohol sales with their attendant age limits have been implemented by various retail stores including pharmacies for years.
Plan B is an obvious win/win for all.
The only way it won't be passed by the FDA is if government officials and the Bush Administration continue to pander to the illogical and scientificly challenged religious right.
Thank you for your attention.
