The Senior Citizens League's Comments on U.S. Supreme Court Case Wyeth v. Levine
Date:10/30/2008

Launched in the fall of 2005, TSCL's Seniors' Health Initiative has undertaken efforts to intervene on behalf of seniors and others in opposition to FDA's recent efforts to: (a) squelch free market access to complementary and alternative medicine; (b) raise barriers to the free flow of information concerning health enhancing vitamins and other dietary supplements; and (c) deny access to developmental drugs to terminally-ill patients without treatment alternatives.

Not only has TSCL's Health Initiative propelled it to file formal comments with the FDA -- including ground-breaking comments undermining the FDA's self-serving Science and Mission at Risk Report of November 2007 -- and to file amicus briefs in the Supreme Court, it has driven TSCL to take action in Congress, helping to draft a bill that would give terminally-ill patients ready access to drugs approved by the FDA for human testing. Additionally, TSCL is monitoring other bills limiting the power of the FDA's efforts to limit individual choice.

With oral argument scheduled in Wyeth for November 3, 2008, and a Freedom of Information Act request seeking records regarding FDA policy against Estriol and other natural Hormonal Replacement Therapies, TSCL's Health Initiative will continue to strive to preserve the freedoms of all Americans to make informed health care choices.

With 1.2 million members and supporters, The Senior Citizens League (http://www.SeniorsLeague.org) is one of the nation's largest nonpartisan seniors groups. The Senior Citizens League is a proud affiliate of The Retired Enlisted Association.
