One of Caitlin’s DES posts for our blog was linked by the Huffington Post‘s own Diana Bianchini, who wrote about Caitlin and the DES apology effort, reaching a worldwide readership. This week’s letter from the FDA breaks new ground and will have political and legal ramifications that are likely to help DES victims around the world.
FDA Letter Is National News (& It All Started Here)

UPDATE: New coverage on the FDA letter in the Boston Globe…
FDA LETTER IS NATIONAL NEWS (& IT ALL STARTED HERE…)
Our blog is proud that Caitlin McCarthy’s series of impassioned guest posts on the DES drug scandal has resulted in an important news-making letter of acknowledgement from the FDA about the DES tragedy.
The offices of Sen. John Kerry and Sen. Scott Brown have put out a joint national press release on the FDA letter, which was prompted in part by Caitlin’s posts on this blog and her request that readers contact Senators Brown and Kerry.
Our thanks to all the readers who contacted the senators and to Caitlin for showing that one voice can make a difference.
