In a surprise move, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has decided to lower the age limit for women to buy Plan B, aka the morning-after-pill over-the-counter from 17 to 15 years of age.
Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius decided yesterday to overrule a recommendation by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to allow the over-the-counter sale of the morning after pill known as Plan B.
The Obama Administration is considering a new proposal from his Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to let anyone of any age buy the morning-after pill directly off drugstore and supermarket shelves without a prescription.
By Susan Brinkmann, OCDS Staff Journalist The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the use of Ella, a drug currently being marketed in Europe as a "morning after pill", even though it has not undergone rigorous testing in the U.S. and has been known to cause birth defects in children who survived after their mothers used the drug.
By Susan Brinkmann, OCDS Staff Writer A new law aimed at stripping federal funding from any school that dispenses the morning after pill to students under the age of 18 is making its way through Congress. Currently, more than 180 public high school and middle schools dispense the drug without parental notification.
