A few weeks ago, I celebrated as a federal judge ordered the FDA to make "Plan B" available over the counter without restrictions. I thought that the judge's ruling would provide the Obama administration with political cover. Surely they would respect the decision. I was wrong.
By interjecting politics into the FDA drug review process, Secretary Sebelius placed the president in the unenviable position of not acting in the best interest of women's health. And politically, that's not a place the president wants to be.
