Cooked FDA report...
Interesting one-two punch here.
On the same day that the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report confirming that the FDA's decision to prevent the over-the-counter selling of emergency contraception (Plan B) wasn't entirely on the level, the controversy over Target's Plan B policy heats up.
According to Nico Pitney: "The blockbuster finding of the report is that then-FDA Commissioner Lester Crawford (a close ally of anti-choice groups) reportedly decided to reject the Plan B application months before the FDAÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s study of the drug was completed."
At the same time, Target is officially allowing its pharmacists to refuse to fill women's prescriptions if their belief system tells them it's wrong. A situation nobody would have to confront were Plan B an over-the-counter medication.
I'm not saying it was coordinated. I'm just saying.
