PLAN C….Via Pandagon, I see that the FDA once again says it will need many additional months to determine the safety of the Plan B “morning after” pill. There’s no serious scientific debate about Plan B’s safety, of course, but FDA deputy commissioner Scott Gottlieb says they need to carefully review the 10,000 public comments they’ve received anyway. Some budding young Pasteur might have come up with something that the scientific community has overlooked.

Is there anything political about this? Of course not. The FDA is just adopting the Kansas model of scientific inquiry, that’s all.
