Congress Tells FDA to Stop Being So Damn Politically Driven

Well, maybe Congress shouldn't be reprimanding the FDA for catering to interest groups, but someone sure should.

Congress's investigative arm today criticized the FDA for its rejection of the "morning-after pill" Plan B.
The Government Accountability Office also said in its 57-page report that there were questions about whether top officials of the F.D.A. made the decision to reject the application for over-the-counter sales of the drug, which is opposed by some religious conservatives, even before its own advisory committee had issued its recommendation on the matter.
This reminded me of a great comic I saw recently. I actually have linked to it previously, but this time it has greater relevance.
