Washington, D.C. – Today the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Barr Laboratory’s application for over-the-counter status of the drug Plan B for women over the age of 18. Family Research Council (FRC) President Tony Perkins released the following statement:
“I am greatly troubled that the FDA has sacrificed women’s health in the name of politics. Just days after Barr Laboratories admitted its inability to enforce dual-status sale of the drug, the FDA has gone beyond its rule-making authority by granting Barr’s request.
“An agency charged with protecting the health interests of the country, must be held to high standards of accountability. Congress must respond to this outrageous action by the FDA.
“Family Research Council is pursuing legal and legislative options against the FDA for its deliberate disregard for women’s health and the law.”
