I have worked for eight years in healthcare and have always regarded the FDA as having the utmost integrity and as an organization that would follow correct scientific thinking. Unfortunately, my faith in the FDA is completely erroded due to the handling of Plan B. The FDA has completely thrown science out the window and bowed down to polictical pressure. Shame on you. You are now putting women's health in jeopardy and this is completely unfair to the million of women who rely on the FDA to make sure they have access to necessary treatments. Plan B has been PROVEN to be safe and effective, yet because of political views, it has not be approved for OTC use. That is wrong. You allow men complete access to such unnecessary drugs as Viagra, but you won't let victims of rape be able to handle an unwanted and unintended pregnancy in the privacy of their own home?

I am sick of sitting still and allowing this injustice to continue. Vote to approve Plan B for OTC now!!
