Anything worth talking about, is worth blogging about

This is great news: In a decision in Tommino et. al v. Torti, Justice Edward Korman of the EDNY has ordered the Food and Drug Administration to allow the emergency contraceptive pill to be available without a prescription for women aged 17 and older. Emergency contraception was previously available OTC for adult women.

Among the findings was that there was undue political interference, “repeated and unreasonable delays”, and a lack of good faith in its decision making.

One of the first things to come out of litigation regarding the OTC status (for all women) of emergency contraception was news of a ridiculous fear of teenagers forming “sex-based cults“. This all goes to show how much the Bush Administration valued loyalty and ideology over ability and merit.
