Things that are un-essential

Posted by on August 25 at 9:42 AM

This just in from Caroline, upstairs in the Lovelab/Lustlab HQ:

I love how the FDA won’t grant approval of necessary things like safe, over-the-counter contraception, things that we NEED, but will grant approval for things that are un-essential and in fact detrimental to women’s health.

She’s talking about the FDA’s move to approve sketchy silicone breast implants. Carolineand Iare pissed that the Bush appointees at the FDA love objecting to contraception, but they’re falling all over themselves to greenlight potentially dangerous implants. (But you can do something about it, via the link above.)
