Two senators, who called for congressional hearings into the delay, said he broke a personal pledge to Congress to decide Plan B's fate by Sept. 1. "It is a breach of faith," said Sens. Patty Murray, D-Wash., and Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., who lifted objections to Crawford assuming leadership of FDA only after his pledge.
"I am stunned and outraged and furious," Murray said. "This is not only a broken promise to us, but another frightening example of politics trumping science at the FDA."

Conservative groups, which have argued that Plan B would encourage teen sex, welcomed the agency's decision. "Making the morning-after pill over-the-counter would only benefit those that profit from its increased sale," said Wendy Wright of Concerned Women for America. "But the real price will be paid by women and girls who would suffer the health consequences."
If I had Tild's powers, I would make a Tildified of Wendy Wright with her head in the sand.
CWFA, making unintended pregrancies as punishing as possible, one teenager at a time.
