von Eschenbach Confirmation On Hold

Due to the negative response from thousands of people, and the backfiring on the FDA's tentative Plan B over-the-counter emergency oral contraceptive proposal, the Senate HELP Committee has delayed a vote on the nomination of Andrew von Eschenbach, MD to be the next FDA Commissioner.

HELP committee Chairman Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WY) is planning to seek a vote in committee in September, when Congress returns from its August recess period. Two HELP Committee members have said that they will put a "hold" on a full Senate vote, even if approved by the HELP committee, until the Plan B issue is resolved. This means that until these "holds" are released, even if voted out of the HELP committee, the full Senate cannot vote on the nomination.

Please continue to urge your Senators to ask important health freedom questions of von Eschenbach - just click here:
