The Center Takes The FDA Back to Court

Teva, the manufacturer of the emergency contraceptive (EC) Plan B, announced that it filed an application with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requesting that EC be available over-the-counter without a prescription for women of all ages. When it comes to emergency contraception, the FDA has refused to listen to medical and scientific consensus that says there is no rationale for age restrictions. While the Center supports any action to increase access to EC, Teva’s application does not excuse the FDA of its responsibility to women and the law.
