Commenting Open on FDA Plan B Decision

I should point out that, regarding making emergency contraception available OTC, the issue they are currently accepting public comment on is "Circumstances Under Which an Active Ingredient May Be Simultaneously Marketed in Both a Prescription Drug Product and an Over-The-Counter Drug Product." You may submit comments on that issue here. I reasonably sure that this particular issue is not one that folks on either side of the debate actually care about; the docket includes the questions of whether age-restricted OTC status could be enforced, and whether the OTC and prescription drug could be marketed in the same packaging. However, I would encourage you to complete a response addressing these concerns if the end result of making EC more accessible to women is one that you care about.
