Today, U.S. Senator Patty Murray released the following statement after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s announcement on Plan B One-Step.

“This decision is a step in the right direction for increased access to a product that is a safe and effective method of preventing unintended pregnancies. It’s also a decision that moves us closer to these critical availability decisions being based on science, not politics. Plan B is an essential part of a woman’s basic health care and I will continue to push for more information from FDA and HHS on the practical application of this policy while also working to ensure that access is based on science, safety, and efficacy.”
