Director of FDA's Office of Women's Health resigns

Susan Wood (Director of the FDA's Office of Women's Health) resigned on Wednesday in reaction to the agency's delay in making a decision about OTC status for the Plan B emergency contraceptive. According to the NYTimes, Wood stated, "I can no longer serve as staff when scientific and clinical evidence, fully evaluated and recommended for approval by the professional staff here, has been overruled."
