FDA Blatantly Ignores Petitions Against Re-Certification of Contraceptives

In August 2014, the FDA posted an invitation on their website for concerned parties to give their written comments on applications for re-certification of contraceptives on or before October 8, 2014.

Filipinos for Life submitted their letter on October 8, 2014. The letter and enclosed table (pdf) are below.

On October 21, 2014, Pro-Life Philippines, a separate entity from Filipinos for Life, received a letter acknowledging receipt of the comments, addressed to the Executive Director of Pro-Life Philippines, Lorna Melegrito, but using the salutation “Dear Mr. Perez”.

As of November 25, 2014, the FDA has not responded appropriately to the Filipinos for Life petition and by all indications, the Department of Health is simply going ahead and proceeding with contraceptive distribution, as they have been since the April 8 Supreme Court decision, and before they have complied with the SC mandate on the IRR.
