Good for the FDA

 
WASHINGTON (AP) — The government revived efforts Monday to widen access to the morning-after pill, but only to women 18 and older, issuing a surprise announcement that it was reconsidering over-the-counter sale of the emergency contraceptive almost a year after it was thought doomed.

The Food and Drug Administration notified manufacturer Barr Pharmaceuticals Inc. early Monday that it wanted to meet within seven days to iron out new steps the company must take in its three-year battle to sell the pill, called Plan B, without a prescription to at least some women.

Thanks, CNN.
 
The apparent non-evilness of this particular move, given the FDA’s long and glorious history of pure, unadulterated evil confuses me.

Someone well-connected is about to, no doubt, make a LOT of money.
