FDA Lady Steps Down Over Contraceptive Contretemps
Earlier we mentioned that the FDA decided to overrule pesky scientific evidence regarding the Plan B emergency contraception and instead turn to the public for advice. That may turn out to be just as well, because the actual scientists are leaving. Writes Susan Wood, former Assistant Commissioner for Women's Health:
I can no longer serve as staff when scientific and clinical evidence, fully evaluated and recommended for approval by the professional staff here, has been overruled. I therefore have submitted my resignation effective today.Girls -- so moody!
