A federal judge slammed the Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday over its handling of the birth-control pill known as Plan B.

Judge Edward Korman accused the FDA of putting politics above science and described its regulation of Plan B as “a lot of nonsense,” according to media reports.

Korman ruled last month that the FDA must remove all age restrictions on the sale of Plan B. On Tuesday, he considered whether to stop his ruling from taking effect while the government pursues an appeal.

The FDA recently announced that it would change the age restrictions on Plan B, allowing women 15 and older to buy the drug without a prescription. Sales were previously limited to women 17 and older.
